Tiger Woods didn’t invent the long iron, but he used it to beat the competition during his heyday. When most of his peers embraced woods and high-altitude hybrids, Woods continued to eschew technology for tradition.

It wasn’t until the past several years when Woods finally came up with the idea of ​​using a more forgiving long iron in competition – but even those iron formations didn’t differ much from the rest of his setup. During the 2022 PGA Championship, Woods added two TaylorMade P770 long irons to tackle the southern hills, including a rarely seen 2-iron.

At the time, the duo iron was not available in retail stores. (Of course, whatever gear Tiger wants, Tiger gets it.)

It’s not uncommon for trekking products to appear only in a Woods bag and never make their way into retail. But when it comes to irons that the main winner has won 15 times, golfers will have the opportunity to test it out – assuming they have the chops hitting the ball.

As TaylorMade announced Thursday, a limited number of P770 2 Woods-inspired irons will be available to the general public. catch? You must be a MyTaylorMade+ subscriber.

The 2-iron retails for $249.99 and comes with a Mitsubishi MMT 105 graphite shaft, making it a great second or third choice away from a tee. The recessed racket features TaylorMade rapid foam in the groove for enhanced speed and feel. But don’t expect too much in the way of abundant forgiveness. The overall look remains compact with a modest amount of offset—two traits Woods prefers to see in his irons.
