Sergio Garcia, Paula Creamer Switch to TaylorMade's New R9 TP Irons

Posted at 12:31 PM by David Dusek | Categories: Irons, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, TaylorMade

Sergio-Garcia-TaylorMade-R9Irons_600 Retief Goosen made a switch to TaylorMade's new R9 TP irons before the start of the Presidents Cup in San Francisco in September. Now two more high-profile TaylorMade players have made the switch to the company's newest better-player irons.

Sergio Garcia put a set of R9 TP irons in his bag before the start of the Madrid Masters in early October, and has them in the bag again this week at the Castello Masters in Castellon, Spain.

Garcia started the 2009 season using TaylorMade's Tour Preferred irons and switched during the summer to a set TaylorMade RAC MB blades that he'd played in previous seasons.

According to the company, Garcia's R9 TP irons are fitted with Project X 6.5 shafts and Golf Pride New Decade 60 grips with four to five layers of tape under the grips.

This week Garcia is also playing new TaylorMade RAC wedges that feature grooves that conform to the new 2010 regulations.

Meanwhile, Paula Creamer, who is playing a Japanese LPGA Tour event this week, has been Twittering about her new irons:

Thurs. 5:55PM Eastern: I am using new TaylorMade irons this week. They are the new R9 TP irons and are awesome. I haven't changed my irons in almost 3 years!

Thurs. 6:05PM Eastern:
These R9 TP irons are the new groves. I loved my r7 irons but it was time for a change. Plus in January I have to change to the new groves.

Fri. 5:26AM Eastern: The new irons worked well today. I missed 4 greens. Still trying to figure out how far I hit them. That is the hard part for me right now.

Here is what GOLF Magazine had to say about the game-improving R9 irons in its November issue.
