TAYLORMADE has again demonstrated its expertise at creating irons favoured by highly skilled players with the new Tour Preferred MB, Tour Preferred MC and Tour Preferred CB.
“We don’t believe you can call yourself a great iron company unless you create irons that great players want to play. Irons that meet a Tour pro’s requirements for look, feel, sound and workability,” said Sean Toulon, Executive Vice President.
“That’s why these clubs bare the name Tour Preferred. The head has to look right from every angle. The leading edge and sole have to react a certain way with the turf. We’ve taken each of these things into careful account to make these irons especially appealing to better players.”
Tour Preferred MB (RRP £899) is an authentic muscleback player’s blade, precisely forged of soft, 1025 carbon steel. The shape is classic and compact, with a thin top-line and minimal offset. At the request of the many Tour pros, TaylorMade consulted during the prototype phase, the sole has minimal camber.

Tour Preferred MC (RRP £849) combines a player’s shape with a shallow “muscle cavity” to boost MOI, creating an unparalleled blend of beauty, feel, workability and stability. The 3- through 7-iron incorporate TaylorMade’s renowned Speed Pocket technology to promote increased ball speed in the lower portion of the clubface for more consistent ball speed and launch conditions across the entire face.
The clubhead’s length, top-line and sole-width are all slightly larger compared to the Tour Preferred MB.
Tour Preferred CB (RRP £749) is a full-fledged cavity back that maintains the shape of a player’s iron and the elegant look of a blade when set-up behind the ball. The Speed Pocket in the 3- through 7-iron features “micro-slots” to promote faster ball speed across the face and higher launch, which promote more distance.
That helps make the Tour Preferred CB one of the longest player’s iron that TaylorMade has ever created. Short-iron heads are compact with minimal offset, while the long and middle iron heads are slightly larger with progressive offset for more stability and easier launch.
All three models are offered in 3-iron through PW, feature a hand-polished satin nickel-chrome finish and are equipped with KBS Tour steel shafts and tour velvet grips. Custom shafts and grips are available.
All three models will be available from January 20.
