TaylorMade's SpeedFoam Technology made a big splash when it was introduced in the P790 irons and now a driving iron, the P790 UDI has been added to the range that benefits from its unique properties.
Eagle-eyed golf fans may have noticed the P790 UDI in the hands of some of the best players in the world, with Dustin Johnson, Joh Rahm, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy all taking advantage of increased distance and accuracy the club provides off the tee or fairway.
Similar to the other irons in the set, the P790 UDI is constructed with a soft, 8620 carbon steel body combined with high-strength forged 4140 carbon steel with a wrapped-face construction in a hollow body design.
Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade's Senior Director, Product Creation explains the clubs wider release:
After experiencing increasing demand from the best golfers on worldwide Tours, we’re excited to bring the Ultimate Driving Iron to golfers everywhere with the new P790 UDI. Offering SpeedFoam in a driving iron for the first time ever, the P790 UDI delivers distance and accuracy like never before seen in an iron.
The P790 UDI's hollow construction is filled with TaylorMade's proprietary SpeedFoam material, that generates more ball speed from the face as well as managing the sound and feel. Injected into the clubhead, the low-density SpeedFoam provides the face support and damping properties that are unique to the performance of the P790.
The P790 UDI also features a re-engineered Inverted Cone Technology optimised for the slightly smaller face area. TaylorMade’s previous ICT had a larger, heavier profile. The new, smaller Inverted Cone in the P790 UDI allows for reduced face thickness at the edges of the face, thus increasing flexibility from heel to toe and low on the clubface, resulting in more ball speed across the entire face.
