    Yeah, whenever i order from TM I normally order it soft as possible and as long as possible. Then trim it myself.



    That came out wrong LOL

    This may have just been my experience, hope other can chime in, but I have a theory on Rory's wedge play issues.



    I was messing around with the tp5/tp5x ball last season and it was great in all aspects except for 1. I noticed whenever I would hit "off speed" shots, or 3/4 shots, the spin would drop too low and I'd end up with a flyer looking flight. Consequently, I really struggled with my wedge game, and wedge game is a major, major strength of mine, along with hitting any flighted iron shots



    Couple that with any sort of wind and it became a challenge, as there where times I would play a certain shot expecting the wind to slam it, and the ball would flight right through it.



    Could something similar be the case for Rory? I know he wasn't the greatest of short iron players however he was never anywhere near as bad as he has been with TM.



    Any others experience the same results?

    Just an FYI, prob not the right topic either but just got off the phone with TM. I ordered the m5 with tensei pro white. Customer Service said that they tip based on manufacturer recomdeatoin now. So, for the pro white, selecting standard tipping = no tipping.




    So between that and the "new" way they measure the length of the clubs I have no idea how to order




    Just order the driver an inch long, then either have the butt cutt or pulled and tip it more if it doesn't match what you want.

    Anyone know how much he tips that driver?




    1.5 inches on some shafts. I've seen one at 2 inches.




    DANG. I'm gonna order it at 1in lol




    I tip my personal shafts 1 inch and I'm around 122-125 with driver. Some guys however like an even stiffer feel.




    That's insane that he tips 1.5" minimum - you and Rory have about the same swing speed, and I can't imagine a smoother tempo at 122-127 as Rory.

    Is he still playing the TP5 non x?




    This baffles me that he doesn't spin this ball into oblivion - I found it a little spinny for my game, and I'm 15 mph less than him at my best.

    Rory is fundamentally amazing and generates huge speed from a small frame. He may be the best driver of the golf ball in the world.

    Has anyone else tried going one flex weaker in a long iron like Rory has (i.e. he’s dropping down to a 6.5 in the two iron)? Curious folks’ results if they have, I’ve been toying with the idea of going with a C Taper S+ in a P790.

    I play C-Taper 130x’s through my irons, and I use a Project X 6.5 LZ in my P790 UDI 2-iron (bent to 16*) and have no issues with flighting the ball.



    If anything when I try and kill one I get too much height, so I’m considering moving to a regular 6.5 Project X or even up again, depending on shaft availability here in Aus.



    FWIW, I did have an DG X100 in my regular RSI-TP 2-iron (non-UDI) and had no issues with that.

    He should have kept yellow/black MCC color grips when he went to Nike. But the red in the covert driver and that color combo is all bad.



    I’m guessing that’s why he went to white/black for a while before getting out of that hybrid grip style.



    Bring back NDMC Rory.

    Anyone know if the various "Proto" blades played by TM staffers are different than the retail P730 irons? The CB 750s in Rory's bag look identical.

    I believe they're different only in terms of minor shaping details to suit a particular player's eye, but overall they're extremely close to the retail P730.

    I've heard through the grapevine that Taylormade custom ordering isn't that great in terms of QC either. Someone custom ordered irons and the lie angles were all off from what they ordered. Not sure if they've cleaned that stuff up but that plus this tipping stuff doesn't sound like it would mix well

    I love my irons but we did have to pull 2 of the heads to correct swingweight issues and the lies were all over the map.
