Ultimate Driving Iron At Open

While the vast majority of golfers seems to have eschewed their long irons in favor of generally easier-to-hit fairway metals and hybrids, there is still a contingent of better players that prefers those clubs for the accuracy, control and ball flight they provide. And that is the market TaylorMade Golf is trying to reach with its latest release, the Tour Preferred UDI.
UDI stands for Ultimate Driving Iron, and the club utilizes a hollow construction with welded 450 Carpenter steel that allowed engineers to move weight lower and more forward for greater balls speeds – and distance – as well as higher launch angles than those usually found in those sorts of clubs.
Available in three lofts – 16, 18 and 20 degrees – and equipped with KBS C-Taper Lite shafts stock, they also feature TaylorMade’s Speed Pocket technology, which is designed to allow the clubface to flex more efficiently at impact.
According to company technicians, an advanced sound-dampening system gives the UDI a soft feel and crisp sound.
