GolfWRX Spotted: New TaylorMade “P7MB” and “P7MC” irons (Updated)

Published

Update

8/1: Robert MacIntyre was spotted with (left-handed) TaylorMade P7MC irons in the bag at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. This could be an indication the next generation of the “P” series will be available in left-handed if/when they come to retail.

More of MacIntyre’s bag with venerable Chris Trott from TaylorMade Europe’s Twitter.


7/22 6:00 PM EST: Rasmus Hojgaard was spotted with a new cavity back iron at the European Tour’s Betfred Masters. TaylorMade had no comment on the new irons.

Trottie Speaks!

BOOM!!!!

Rory played 18 with these yesterday and as of now the plan is to put them into play tomorrow, these irons must be something for World #1 to put them in play so quickly. More to come as we learn.

7/14 5:30 PM EST: Rory McIlroy reportedly has P7MB irons in a practice round ahead of the Memorial Tournament. 


We’re used to spotting new equipment on tour. Usually, however, the “tour” is the PGA Tour…not the developmental Clutch Pro Tour.

Nevertheless, TaylorMade staffer Charley Hull was spotted with new “P7MB” irons in her bag at the Open Access Masters at Sunningdale Heath Golf Club. Rumor is she was fit into them yesterday and had them in the bag today. That is an extremely quick turn around at the tour level.

Upon initial inspection, they are most similar to the P7TW and P730 irons with a different muscle structure. And for what it may or may not be worth in terms of performance similarities, Hull won a Rose Ladies Series event two weeks ago with P730 irons in the bag.

However, the Carlsbad-based company is without comment on where these irons will fit into the P700 family of irons or if there are any plans to bring the blades to retail.

GolfWRX will continue to update this post with more information and additional sightings of the “P7MB” irons…stay tuned.

    Who forged these for TM, Endo?, or some forging house in China. Why wont companies tell us who forges their irons?. ( Except Mizuno).

    Those P7MC’s look like TM’s version of the Srixon Z745’s, IMO. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

    Not sure if it’s the lighting or what but that angular section on the bottom coming from the toe back to the middle makes me think of something from Srixon land….which is not a bad thing at all.

Adidas unveils new Stan Smith golf shoe in classic colorway

Published

on

Adidas Golf is bringing the classic Stan Smith colorway to the course, with the new unmistakable white and green golf shoe.

Building upon the new PimeGreen upper made with high-performance recycled materials1 as part of Adidas’ mission to End Plastic Waste, this version is also waterproof (one-year warranty) to help keep golfers dry both on and off the course.

The new Stan Smith golf shoe features a PU cushioning in targeted areas in the midsole to go alongside a PU die-cut sockliner in a bid to provide maximum comfort.

The shoe also contains an adiwear spikeless outsole that features lugs inspired by the shoe’s original sole design, offering some added traction for all course conditions to go along with their style.

“When we were talking about bringing this shoe into golf, the original white and green colorway was a must-have as part of our planning. The Stan Smith silhouette is known throughout the world for being so versatile from a fashion standpoint, so we’re excited to give golfers that same style and versatility for when they head out to the course, now in a more sustainable way.” – Masun Denison, global footwear director, Adidas Golf.

As an ode to the traditions of the past, Adidas has also included a removable white kiltie to provide players another way to wear their shoes and give off some added flair for their round.

This classic white and green colorway of the Stan Smith Golf will be available on adidas.com, through the Adidas app, and at select retail partners worldwide beginning Saturday, May 1.

Lob wedge or no lob wedge? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the necessity of a lob wedge. WRXer ‘rickybooby25’ kicks off the thread, saying

“Do you use a Lob wedge in your current set-up or not? Players nowadays immediately default to using a LW when playing a chip shot around the greens. I currently have a LW in the bag but have been debating on taking it out completely because it creates bad habits when facing a chip shot. What are your thoughts?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the subject in the forum, with some very interesting responses.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Chadwickog: “I am in the NO lob wedge camp, it simplifies the decision making when it comes to wedge play, and all shots are still possible if you know how to hit them.”
  • jholz: “I’ve always looked at the lob wedge as a specialty club for special situations. Lower lofted wedges (54* or 56*) are the ones I use for the vast majority of generic chip shots.”
  • timmekang: “I’ve mentioned this in prior posts, but I carry 2 lob wedges. Not all lob wedges are created equal to don’t be afraid to bring more than 1 out on the course with different bounce/grind/etc. and see what works best depending on your lie and circumstances.”
  • lefthack: “I bought one, learned to hit it, but didn’t find a need for it in my bag when there are other clubs I would use more.”
