TaylorMade Golf Announces the All-New Tour Inspired P·UDI and P·DHY Featuring Piercing Performance and Maximum Versatility

CARLSBAD, CA – TaylorMade Golf, an industry leader in performance and innovation, announces the latest additions to the P·Series family with the all-new P·UDI and P·DHY. From piercing performance to maximum versatility, the P·UDI and P·DHY offer golfers of all skill levels the ability to choose their flight and optimize the top end of their bag.

P·Series Has a New Level of Versatility

When researching TaylorMade’s next iteration of utility irons, the engineering and product creation teams wanted to understand what skill level golfer would play utility irons. Research showed that UDI usage skews towards the better player, but a lot of mid handicap players still play utility irons. The majority of DHY™ players ranged from six handicaps to 18 handicaps.

The next question they wanted to answer was, what irons are these players using at the top of their bags? The predominant answer was that the overwhelming majority of players played a current P·Series product.

Tour Inspired Shaping

P·UDI and P·DHY feature a contemporary design with a pearl satin finish and mirror black ridge across the middle. Shaping for each iron has been designed to fit seamlessly with other P·Series irons and fit the eye of the more discerning player. 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.

The P·UDI 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.

From a face shaping perspective, 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 millimeters. Despite P·UDI being more compact, it is still extremely forgiving.

P·DHY is a story of Center of Gravity (CG) 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.

Key P·Series Technologies

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.

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

Performance Differences Between P·UDI and P·DHY

Identifying the difference between P·UDI and P·DHY starts with the CG position in each iron. P·UDI has mid CG right behind center face to create a more penetrating mid-to-low ball flight, while P·DHY has a lower center 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.

From extensive testing, TaylorMade engineers wanted to design utility irons that have a lower trajectory but can generate enough spin to still be able to shape the ball and hold greens when hitting into short par fives or long par threes.

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.
