Are the TaylorMade P7MB Irons a Failiure?


Recommended Posts

Rory and DJ have abandoned the P7MB going back to their “proto” irons. Is anyone on tour using these irons? Are they a failure? Why do blade players not like them?

Probably just mere tinkering, going back to something they’ve had success with in the past, or looking for a spark. DJ has had his proto irons back in the bag for a while though; in fact, he won the Masters with them. I don’t think that bears on whether the irons are a failure or not. I mean, come on, with today’s technology and streamlined manufacturing processes, how could they be a failure? The mere fact that players go to something else doesn’t evince that what they shelved is a “failure.” 

Moreover, what does “failure” even mean? Are you referring to something inherently wrong with the iron from a design/mechanical standpoint? I doubt it because TM wouldn’t have given it to the pros to begin with, nor would the players have had them in the bag.

Tiger changed putters here and there. Was there something wrong with the Scotty he won a ton of majors with? No. He was tinkering and looking for a spark.

Great point. They may be trying them out or doing some tournament tests.

I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.

 

Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
