TaylorMade's R9 TP (Tour Preferred) Irons are similar in design to the standard R9 clubs, the main differences being that the TP version uses a more classic design, with a more compact head design. Still, this model features the "velocity control chamber" behind the clubface which allows for a very thin face and a large COR in the long-irons, improving distance. This chamber contains foam that helps to absorb impact and reduce vibration. The long-irons have a low centre of gravity and offer a fair degree of control, and the face thickness increases with the iron number, giving more control and feel for approaches (despite a smaller COR). Another feature of the TP model is that the face and grooves conform to newly passed USGA and R&A rulings. These irons are available only with steel shafts.
