    For all the people in this thread saying he'll be gaming TM irons at the hero, you do realize that the Hero is less than a month away and that he just started bagging these TGR Prototypes right? You think he switched to these TGR's just for the few weeks he's returning to play before TM outfits him? He'll have TGR's in the bag at Augusta, if he plays.

    He's going to play with what is currently in his bag. I wouldn't expect to see anything different at this point.

    I think he pays the TGR’s at the Hero but it isn’t out of the question to see him in a Taylormade blade. It’s not like switching to the TGR’s was a huge switch. They’re exactly the same as his Nike blades. (Literally. They’re the same iron just marked different.)

    As a TM guy now, is he really going to show up with different irons/wedges/putter, just play TM woods?




    I would have to think he'll be in TM woods/irons/wedges and a Scotty Cameron putter for the Hero per the terms of his deal.




    It will be interesting to see what TM irons he has in play.




    Andrew Tursky from this site was just on ITR on SiriusXM and thinks Tiger will be using the Nike/TGR irons at the Hero. Also wondered if he’d be using the TM Spider putter. I can’t see the TGR Nikes or the Spider putter in play under the big lights.

    I feel pretty confident Tiger will probably use his Scotty the rest of his playing career. However long that is.

    a committee of one is and will pick to keep the TGR irons in the bag. TM will more than likely just see their driver and fw in play - which will need to be fine by them.

    Interesting information and theories about what he might play at the Hero. I am hoping for him to stay healthy and have no setbacks. I enjoy watching him play, good or bad. I think the SC putter stays in the bag forever.

    No f'n way will a Spider be in his bag at the Hero. That's absurd.

    Maybe TaylorMade let Tiger out of the irons and wedge deal. Tiger never really liked them to begin with. Or Tiger hasnt had enough time to practice with the TM Protos and once he does he will use them.

    I would be inclined to think he uses the TGR's for the reminder of his playing career as well. The guy will be more than likely be pretty limited from a practice standpoint, only makes sense that he uses an iron he has a ton of experience and confidence with. The rebrand on the back now ensures he can use them for as long as needed on a go forward basis.

    Tiger followed the money as he always has. Doesn’t matter if it hurts his body or he has to plays a club he doesn’t like or has never seen, he’ll cash the biggest check.

    TW Proto, Which will be a thinner smaller version of the Rose / Rory Proto's we have seen. He already has them and is practicing with them and they will be in the bag when we see his WITB pics from the Hero.



    Full TM bag except for the Scotty.

    If true, I cannot wait to see the new TW protos. I wonder what stamping TM uses on these?

    Kind of embarrasing for the site when Andrew Tursky suggested that. When the ITR guys asked about what clubs are new and upcoming, he stumbled talking about the SM7s.

    Look at it this way...say the improbable happens and TW wins in his comeback. Do you think TM wants the news to be that he came back and won with OLD Nike irons? Trust me, he’ll have TM woods and irons in the bag. Guaranteed.

    Does Tiger even have a full bag contract with TM? He's already using a bridgestone ball so i'm thinking it's only the woods will be TM.

    The question is does Tiger have to play TaylorMade clubs for non-PGA Tour events or even if he does, is TaylorMade giving him so leeway until next year

    Disagree. Tgr irons will be in play at Hero. He’s Tiger Woods. If he doesn’t have Taylormade irons that are perfect yet, he won’t be using them

    Oddly, I think Tiger holding off from putting TM irons in the bag is GOOD for TM.



    Once he DOES decide to play TM irons, they will appear to be "Tiger validated".

    Do you really think TM can tell him what to do.? I mean. If he doesn't play TM irons at the hero and they try to reprimand him for it he can alwasy say " I'm not playing junk " which makes them look terrible. Sure it may cost him money. But when you're dealing with someone who has it to blow. You learn to be careful how you handle them. TM will not win a equipment contract battle with tiger. Not in the court of public opinion. They know this and will bow to whatever he wants because of it.

    That's my guess, they're giving him some leeway until the next calendar year. They probably have a hard stop for him at Augusta, where he'll have to be playing TM clubs at The Masters.

    Given the milking capability TM has on site, it seems obvious that they could mill a set of “P730s” for Tiger that are identical to his old set if that is what he wants. As we’ve seen, they can also label them any way you want (RORSPtoto, DJ Porto, RoseProto, etc.), so it seems to me that we could be seeing a “TGRPROTO” set soon, complete with Tiger’s corporate logo/branding.

    I'm sure that will happen , butdoubt they will be full milled. I bet there's still somehsnd finishing.

    Tiger won’t violate his contract. He’ll either amend it or play what he’s supposed to.
