TaylorMade’s New Driving Iron

VIA PRESS RELEASE
TaylorMade Golf has extented its successful P790 irons with the introduction of P790 UDI, a forged driving iron engineered with breakthrough SpeedFoam Technology.
To date, World #1 Dustin Johnson, #3 Jon Rahm as well as TaylorMade stablemates Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day have all played the P790 UDI on Tour already this season.
The most popular and successful players-distance iron in company history, P790 has seen remarkable success with players putting a variety of P790 irons into play in competition, opting for a forged iron that delivers distance and playability combined with the preferred feel of a medium-compact head design with a thinner topline. Similar to the other irons in the set, the P790 UDI is constructed with a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel with a wrapped-face construction in a hollow body design.
The P790 UDI’s hollow construction is filled with TaylorMade’s proprietary SpeedFoam material, which serves a dual purpose of generating ball speed as well as the management of sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, the low-density SpeedFoam provides the face support and damping properties that make the performance of the P790 unlike any other iron in the TaylorMade family.
The P790 UDI also features a re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology optimized for the slightly smaller face area.
TaylorMade’s previous ICT had a larger, heavier profile. The new, smaller Inverted Cone in the P790 UDI allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face, thus increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, resulting in more ball speed across the entire face. For forgiveness and playability, P790 UDI features strategically placed internal metal-injection-molded (MIM) tungsten weighting for precise CG placement and higher moment of inertia (MOI).
Specifications, Pricing & Availability
Available through custom orders starting Friday, 3/30 at $299 CDN, P790 UDI will be offered via custom order in RH only as a 2-iron (17°) with a recommended Project X’s popular HZRDUS Black shaft (85g) designed for low launch/low spin and gripped with a Golf Pride TV 360. Additionally the P790 will also be available with an extensive offering of steel and graphite (.355) options through the custom line.
Length: 40” (steel 39.25”)
