TaylorMade updates P790 irons for 2023

How do you improve a high-performing, highly popular iron? For 2023, and the fourth generation of P790 irons, TaylorMade engineers focused on the interior cavity of each iron.

Before digging into exactly what this means, a few visuals: Check out the interior of the TaylorMade P790 3-iron, 7-iron, and pitching wedge, below.

As you can see, there’s A LOT going on. Engineers utilized the variables of tungsten weighting, SpeedFoam Air, and internal mass — with an assist from AI — to precisely give golfers what they need in each iron. For example, launch and forgiveness in the long irons.

More specifically, TaylorMade is using what the company calls FLTD CG (flighted CG) to strategically position CG throughout the set (lower in the long irons, higher in the short irons). CG is positioned almost a millimeter lower in the long irons compared to previous generations. In the shorter irons, the higher CG positions allowed engineers to dial in spin and promote accuracy.

Stabilization bar

Above the tungsten weight in the 3 through 7-irons is the new sound stabilization bar. The positioning of the bars allows for feel and performance adjustments and the reduction of unwanted vibrations at impact. In the longer irons, TaylorMade moved the stabilization bar toward the center of the club, and the tungsten weighting is closer to the sole, while the opposite is true in the mid-irons.

Refined look

The latest iteration of P790 irons feature a slightly refined tour satin scratch bisects the pearl satin chrome and are designed for easy combo-ing with P770 irons.

“P·790 is a collision of art and engineering. The allure lies not only in the clean design and visual appeal, but also in the high-performance machine that lives within. It’s the total package, an ideal blend of external elegance and internal power.” – Matt Bovee, TaylorMade’s Director, Irons Product Creation
