According to Golf.com's Dylan Dethier, aย TaylorMade spokesperson said the following with regard to Tiger's new irons:

"We have been working closely with Tiger on the development, creation and refinement of a set of TaylorMade irons that meet his precise standards and preferences. As we continue to develop future iterations of Tiger's prototype irons, 'TW Phase1' marks Tiger's initial transition into a TaylorMade set.

"This set was built to his meticulous specifications. Based on the positive feedback and excitement expressed by Tiger regarding upcoming prototypes, we are encouraged by the ongoing creation process and look forward to what's in store for the next phase of Tiger's irons. As we work toward finalizing Tiger's new irons, there will be more information to come, including a release date for golfers everywhere."

Woods was a longtime Nike golfer, but after Nike exited golf, he signed a deal with TaylorMade in 2017.

The Wells Fargo Championship will be Tiger's first start since finishing tied for 32nd at the Masters.

Woods has two top-five finishes this year, and he remains in search of his first PGA Tour win since taking five tournaments in 2013.
