It’s been a big day at TaylorMade as they launched three new products, including their new P.790 irons.
If you’re a golf nerd then it doesn’t get much better than seeing three big drops in one day.
But that’s what TaylorMade have given us with the launch of their Milled Grind 2 wedges, new P.790 irons and their TP Patina Collection.
Starting with the Milled Grind 2 wedges, the second generation of their hugely popular line, this is a big step up in wedge play.
That’s due to the introduction of a new raw face, with TaylorMade describing their ZTP Raw Grooves as offering “sharper, deeper and narrower grooves and a sharper radius, which further combined with a rougher surface from the laser etching between the grooves, enable the golfer to create more friction between the clubface and the ball generating more greenside spin.” How good does that sound?
They continue by saying: “Compared with plated grooves, the raw face design increase in friction reduces the ability for the golf ball to potentially skid up the clubface before it grips the face leading to a more consistent ball flight enabling golfers to get closer to the hole.”
The new wedges have a Thick-Thin head design, CNC Milling and allow players the ability to create a club specified for accuracy and precision.
The same applies to the new P.790 irons – the second generation of these particular irons and following the P700 series.
They include SpeedFoam™ and debut a Thru-Slot Speed Pocket, focusing on speed and forgiveness as well as overall performance. According to TaylorMade, the original P.790 is widely considered one of the highest-performing irons, but the new line have a 7% thinner face and also includes “Progressive Inverted Cone Technology (PICT) designed to improved accuracy throughout the set, minimising the right tendency often found in the long irons. The thinner face also maintains sound and feel but enhances feedback regardless of where the ball is struck on the face”.

Perhaps most exciting about today’s launches is the TP Patina Putter collection, which will be an alternative to the popular Spider X range.
The collection is comprised of seven distinct models; Soto, Juno and Del Monte as well as Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3 and Dupage. All models feature a new Pure Roll insert, premium Patina finish and new signature TP screws.
As TaylorMade says, the “TP Patina is a look from the past that plays like the future”. The lads at talkinggolf are only back from a trip abroad testing out some new products and a new putter collection like this would have performed well on the fast greens.
