Could TaylorMade’s new P·UDI & P·DHY utility irons be the breakthrough for golfers?

By: May 8, 2024

A recent TaylorMade research showed that UDI usage skews towards the better player, but many mid-handicappers still play utility irons. The majority of DHY™ players ranged from 6 handicaps to 18 handicaps.

Another finding of this research was that most players played a current TaylorMade P·Series product. The new TaylorMade P·UDI and P·DHY utility irons were designed with these factors in mind. Here are the details!

P·UDI and P·DHY features a contemporary design with a pearl satin finish and mirror black ridge across the middle.

Shaping for each iron has been designed to fit seamlessly with other P·Series irons and fit the eye of the more discerning player.

The P·UDI shaping takes direct inspiration from working with Tour players to create a traditional iron shape that inspires confidence and is easy to play.

The TaylorMade P·UDI utility iron has a moderate sole width but is narrower than the more forgiving P·DHY.

However, P·UDI has a more compact head size than P·790™, making it an alternative option for long irons compared to other P·Series products.

From a face shaping perspective, P·UDI has a traditional iron shape with a raised face height, slimmer toplines, and less offset than previous TaylorMade UDI products with a hint of the backbar from the address to inspire confidence.

The blade length of P·UDI is noticeably shorter than the P·DHY by roughly 5 millimeters. Despite P·UDI being more compact, it is still extremely forgiving.

P·DHY is a story of Centre of Gravity (CG) through shaping with a slightly taller toe height, with more backbar visible from the address and a lower face profile that helps drive CG low in the clubhead for easier launch.

The wider sole aids in additional forgiveness through the turf while providing versatility.
