Tiger Woods Career Highlights Video


Driver: TaylorMade M3 460 (8.5 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange 70TX

The TaylorMade M3 driver utilizes its innovative Twist Face technology engineered to reduce dispersion and deliver straighter tee shots. Twist Face technology also increases loft in the high-toe and less loft in the low-heel for more consistent spin where all golfers commonly miss-hit. The M3 also features a Hammerhead Slot which enhances the sweet spot and increased ball speed for more distance while the Y-Track system allows you to move weight and adjust your settings for optimal trajectory, maximum forgiveness, or explosive distance.

Key Features

  • The wide sole channel delivers more distance by flexing at impact, acting as a springboard to launch the ball off the face with higher speed.  
  • The face insert is comprised of a thick center and radially thin perimeter is located in the heel and toe of the club which helps to deliver greater distance on off-center hits.  
  • Sixteen unique loft and lie combinations offers players with the perfect combination to customize their driver to their liking.
  • New face curvature w/corrective face angle on off center hits, to reduce side spin & deliver straighter shots. Provides more loft in high toe & less loft in low heel for more consistent spin
  • New sole slot implemented into our most adjustable driver for the first time. Reinforced outer portions of the slot allow for a lighter, more flexible face
  • The center portion of the slot increases ball speed low on the face & drops unwanted spin for more distance
  • The back y portion provides forgiving draw and fade options. Splitting the weights provides the ultimate in forgiveness

Fairway Wood

Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M3 (15 degrees), TaylorMade M1 2017 (19 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange (3-wood), 80TX Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange 90TX (5-wood)

The TaylorMade M3 fairway wood features a lighter 5-layer carbon crown and sole with 8g of weight that has been repositioned for a lower more powerful CG location. The lengthened Speed Pocket provides more flexibility and more ball speed low on the face while the new track overhang delivers precise and consistent turf interaction for improved playability from just about any lie.

The TaylorMade M1 2017 fairway wood is one of TaylorMade’s longest and most adjustable fairway woods available today. A 6-layer carbon composite crown lowers the center of gravity for optimal launch while the redesigned sliding weight track has one 25g tungsten weight which can be altered for personalized shot shapes ranging from draw, neutral and fade. The M1 2017 model features an improved open-channel Speed Pocket to generate distance without sacrificing forgiveness.

Key Features

  • Lighter 5-layer carbon crown and sole moves CG lower and deeper, increasing launch.  
  • The lengthened Speed Pocket provides increased flexibility and more ball speed low on the face.  
  • New weight track on the sole has a 25-gram weight for more adjustability and has more overhang for better turf interaction.
  • Lighter 5-layer carbon crown and sole frees up 8g of weight for a lower more powerful CG location. Lengthened speed pocket provides more flexibility and more ball speed low on the face
  • Improved playability: new Track overhang delivers precise and consistent turf interaction
  • Personalization: more left-to-right adjustability due to a heavier, 29g movable weight. More streamlined, 12-position 4 degree loft sleeve


Irons: TaylorMade Tour Preferred UDI (2-iron), TaylorMade TW-Phase 1 Prototype (3-PW)

Shaft: Project X PXi 7.0, True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

When the TaylorMade Tour Preferred UDI is in your bag, tee shots and long approach shots have never been easier. Created to generate strong, playable trajectory with unmatched control off of the tee or from the fairway. The hollow construction, welded with a 455 carpenter steel face, provides a lower CG and higher ball speed. Specially designed dampener system creates the ultimate in sound and feel. While it is difficult TW-Phase 1 is impossible to find, a comparable club would be TaylorMade P-790 (See Above).

Debuting at the Wells Fargo Championship in May 2018, the new TaylorMade TW-Phase 1 Prototype irons in Tiger Woods bag look similar to the blade irons he’s played most of his career. Hopefully in the near future, these beautiful golf clubs will be available to the public.

Key Features

  • Strong, playable trajectory perfect for tee shots.  
  • Optimum control off of the tee or from the fairway.  
  • Hollow construction matched with a strong, thin 455 carpenter steel face for incredible distance.
  • SpeedFoam pushes the limit of COR for groundbreaking distance; Ultra thin 1.75 mm face thickness with mini ICT; High strength forged 4140 carbon steel
  • SpeedFoam produces soft feel and responsive feedback; Refined shaping featuring a straighter topline, shallower face, and progressive offset; Elegantly Design includes minimalistic cosmetic details
  • Strategically placed tungsten weighting to increase inertia; ultra thin internal leading edge with cut thru speed pocket for low face forgiveness; hollow construction for optimal weight placement
  • Loft:17 degree


Wedge: TaylorMade Milled Grind (56 and 60 degrees)

Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

The TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges set a high standard in precision, featuring up to 3 different bounces for a given loft. The CNC machined sole geometry coupled with a precise leading edge, this wedge inspires a lot of confidence at address. New ZTP-17 grooves and a precision weight port combine to lower CG which maximizes spin and gives you incredible control around the greens. The Low Bounce is designed for firm turf and sand conditions, and a shallower swing. The Standard Bounce is designed for moderate turf and sand conditions and for players with a standard swing. The High Bounce is designed for soft turf and sand conditions, and steeper attack angles.

The TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge offers incredible versatility around the greens. Designed to produce a lower launch and more spin, it features a sole cavity with three trapezoid-shaped pockets to optimize weight distribution. Full-face scoring lines ensure consistent ball contact out of the rough while the high bounce leading-edge with increased belly offers less resistance for improved contact from turf or sand. The Hi-Toe wedge also has a Channel Cut Mid-Sole which prevents excessive digging.

Key Features

  • Deeper bore and shaft insertion allows weight to be removed from the hosel, increasing performance.  
  • ZTP-17 grooves provide maximum spin from tight lies as well as wet rough.  
  • More centrally located center-of-gravity improves feel and forgiveness.
  • CNC Machined sole geometry and a precise leading edge promote consistent turf interaction
  • New ZTP-17 groove features steeper side walls and sharper edge radius for maximum spin
  • Precision weight port moves 10g for an optimal CG location, providing a lower launch angle and increased spin RATE
  • 8620 carbon steel for soft feel
