The Taylor Made marketeers’ line of ‘this beauty is a beast’ sums these irons up pretty perfectly and anybody who has seen Dustin Johnson rip apart long par 4s with the 2 iron off the tee will be familiar with the clubs. Many of the golfers we’ve fit for these clubs have been shocked by not only how far they go but also the great feel throughout the set which is more than likely down to the fact that these irons feature TaylorMade’s brand new SpeedFoam technology. This new feature combined with the forged steel face ultimately serves to maximise distance whilst retaining a softer sound and feel. The head design is also incredibly pleasing on the eye which appeals to the more discerning golfer so it is fair to say that Taylor Made really have created a truly long and forgiving ‘players’ iron.
One word of caution, however, is that because these irons are so long, some players and the pro’s at JamGolf included, have noted that the short irons can go too far and leave quite significant distance gaps at the shorter irons. Therefore, we recommend that you should definitely consider including the P790 A wedge in your set or maybe even look at creating your own ‘combo’ set by including p770 irons at 7-PW.
The P790 is not only an incredibly long and forgiving iron, but they look and feel great. They are available for custom fit with a number of shafts and grips available without upcharge. As always, if you have any questions regarding these clubs, including custom fit options, please contact the JamGolf team where a PGA professional will be on hand to help.
