TaylorMade introduces new P Series utility irons – Golf News

By admin May6,2024

TaylorMade has added two new utility irons to its P·Series iron with the introduction of the all-new P·UDI and P·DHY.

Based on usage of past models, the UDI is designed for better players who are likely to play with P·Series irons, while the majority of DHY players have handicaps ranging from six to 18 handicap and a more likely to use a more forgiving set of irons, although both are designed to fit seamlessly in the P·Series range.

Matt Bovee, TaylorMade’s Director of Product Creation, Iron and Wedge, “P·UDI is an easy pair for players that currently play P·Series product and P·DHY is an extremely forgiving option for players of all skill levels. It is a natural fit to give these players the performance in this category that they are looking for.”

P·UDI and P·DHY feature advanced thick-thin back wall construction, sound stabilisation bar, and deliberately distributed mass to maximise forgiveness. Each iron is individually optimised with every gram strategically placed to achieve specific performance goals with premium forged feel.

The internal structure of the UDI (left) and DHY (right) show where the centre of gravity and weight placement differs in each model

Identifying the difference between P·UDI and P·DHY starts with the CG position in each iron. P·UDI has mid CG right behind the centre of the face to create a more penetrating mid-to-low ball flight, while P·DHY has a lower centre of gravity to produce an easier to launch mid-to-high ball flight. Compared to a hybrid or high lofted fairway, the trajectory of P·UDI and P·DHY are still on the lower end.

Testing shows P·UDI is more forgiving than P·790 ,and P·DHY is the most forgiving iron in the entire TaylorMade iron family. This makes P·DHY a perfect option for a player looking for a long iron replacement or one that struggles hitting higher lofted fairway woods.

P·UDI

The P·UDI shaping takes direct inspiration from working with Tour players to create a traditional iron shape that inspires confidence and is easy to play.

It has a moderate sole width, but narrower than the more forgiving P·DHY. P·UDI does, however, possess a more compact head size compared to P·790, serving as an alternative option for their long irons compared to other P·Series products.

P·UDI has a traditional iron shape with a raised face height, slimmer toplines and less offset than previous TaylorMade UDI products with a hint of the backbar from address to inspire confidence. The blade length of P·UDI is noticeably shorter than the P·DHY by roughly five millimetres. Despite P·UDI being more compact, it is still extremely forgiving.

Loft options: 2 (17°), 3 (20°), 4 (22°)

P·DHY

P·DHY is a story of centre of gravity through shaping with a slightly taller toe height, with more backbar visible from address and a lower face profile that helps drive CG low in the clubhead for easier launch. The wider sole aids in additional forgiveness through the turf while providing versatility.

Designed to deliver easy launch, increased forgiveness and enhanced consistency, a new internal weighting structure combines with proven technologies such as the forged hollow body construction with a high-speed 4140 face, SpeedFoam Air, Thru Slot Speed Pocket and up to 26g of tungsten mass.
Loft options: 2 (18°), 3 (20°) and 4 (22°).

Pricing & Availability

P·UDI and P·DHY are available at retail now, priced at £229.

Both irons come in RH and LH and are fitted with UST Mamiya’s Recoil DART shaft in 105 X, 90 S and 75 R (only in P·DHY) with Golf Pride’s Z-Grip 52g 0.580 (Black/Grey). Additional shaft and grip options are available through custom ordering.
