When will we see a retail set of Tiger irons?


Recommended Posts

They had better not. Just bought a set of MP-18s and love playing them.

 

Last thing I want/need is to have to go buy another set of irons. Even when they look that darn good. ;)

Titleist 913 D3 8.5
Titleist 915Fd 13.5
Titleist 913h 17
Mizuno MP-18 4-PW
Scratch wedges 50, 55, and 60
Bettinardi mid-shank putter

Backup bag:

Ping G30 fw 13

Macgregor VIP wedges 51, 56, and 60

SMH at some of these comments. Regardless if ppl are good enough to play his clubs, putting his stamp on them would sell. It would be up to TM to figure out would type of release (limited or mass public) would make the best business case. Fact is they are missing an opportunity. People would buy his clubs just to have them. Let’s not turn this into a should the 10 handicap play blades conversation. Think we all had enough of that one. If you are going to offer blades as a company, might as well be the ones the biggest sports star on the planet uses

TM just went through a phase where they released clubs all the time and almost sank the company. They will likely approach this with extreme caution.

Understand the corporate strategy, just disagree with it. Too cautious for me. Tiger hasn’t released a set of irons in what like 7-8 years? I think the people are ready.

Totally different than releasing 4 drivers in a year. Back in May they said they were working on something for a general release. Would love to hear more about it. Hopefully he wins today and this gets some traction

TM isn't the old TM, they are owned by a venture capital group that isn't going to jump into the deep end of the Tiger pool without some certainty they will make some money. Tigers clubs are not for everyone, probably only .2% of the market is good enough to play them and they probably have to give Tiger a good chunk of the profits if they use his name on them.

There, I fixed that for you.

 

TM doesn't have to look too far back to see how well Nike irons sold with Tiger at has peak. Be surprised if they make that mistake unless it is a very limited release. Heck, they even had a clause in the endorsement deal (to void it) if Tiger's back exploded and he didn't play enough.

 

As stated, Tiger own's his everything so unless he signs off on it, it isn't going to happen.

 

I should have said only 20% think they are good enough to play clubs made for Tiger

Blade sales are minimal and these types of players prolly already know what they want (ones that keep em and dont dump em after few bad rds).......I dont think they would make a killing with Tiger blades

 

Now if it was a GI model maybe but that wont happen

 

They have pretty smart people advising them on what sells and what doesn't, they all do

So false. You could customize them to make them appeal to a greater group

 

And yet...TM isn't offering them. They are the biggest money whores out there among OEM's. Nor has any company he has endorsed (Nike, Titleist, Mizuno) offered them, despite him keeping his specs consistent for a long time now. Given what they all know about marketing, I think my opinion is pretty valid.

We will see how valid it is now that he has won. Think they were waiting to confirm he was healthy and could compete long term before making the investment

The notion that because they aren’t offering them yet, makes your point any more valid, is a reach at best. Nike offered several sets of TW blades

Really is insane. What’s even more insane is they could make a s*** ton of money by just stamping his name on something that looks remotely close to what he’s playing. I know the nikes he used to sell weren’t exactly like the ones in his bag. I’d buy a replica putter too. But those blades are damn sexy. Missing out on some serious cash TM

 

I agree..... just make a players distance iron that looks similar to his blades "inspired by tiger woods" and they'd have gold mine on their hands. Ping's i500 sorta looks like a blade. Maybe TM could do the same? Just revamp the P790 a little bit?

Based on what? Have you actually heard something or is this just frustration with reality?

I know exactly 1 person who plays a pure set of blades and he is scratch. 30 years ago 1/2 the people I played with played blades. If they released the would they sell? Sure. To like 100 people in Japan who play golf 3 times a year and a few people on this site. That’s it.

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid
Ping G 4-U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 54, 58 SS
Grips NDMC +4
Odyssey Pro #1 black
Hoofer
ProV1x-mostly
ECCO Biom Hybrid 3

Speculating, just as you were.
