Justin Rose Wins Open with New TaylorMade Driving Iron

Just in time for the Open Championship TaylorMade has officially introduced the new Tour Preferred UDI ($199). Expected to be in the bags of a dozen or more TaylorMade staffers this week including Justin Rose, who carried the club for both of his recent wins, the UDI is aimed at players who want the distance of a hybrid club with the control and workability of an iron.

We designed the Tour Preferred UDI for players seeking a versatile club that delivers incredible distance off the tee and a high-performance alternative from the fairway. The clean, traditional look at address inspires confidence and the Speed Pocket technology provides amazing distance and consistency.

 

The UDI produces plentiful distance thanks to a Carpenter Steel clubface and TaylorMade's Speed Pocket Technology, which increases ballspeed and reduces spin on shots struck low on the face. The club is available in 16, 18, and 20-degree models and comes standard with a KBS C-Taper Lite shaft.

I've got a Callaway X Utility, 21 or 23 degrees, I can't remember. I definitely like it better than a standard hybrid. There is something about the shafts in hybrids that feels a bit off. Doesn't work as well out of the rough, but not a shot I face very often anyways.

Interesting, give me a long poke iron over a hybrid any day. I think with the larger club head and whatnot I have higher expectations with a hybrid and yeah I end up topping it or shooting an arrow that doesnt come near my expectations
