TaylorMade R7 Iron Degrees
TaylorMade Golf was founded by Gary Adams in 1979. Top professionals such as Sergio Garcia, Kenny Perry and Martin Kaymer -- winner of the 2010 PGA Championship -- use TaylorMade products. The R7 range of irons was introduced in 2006 and features a deep cavity design that creates a low and deep center of gravity, maximizing carry and control. The irons are also equipped with the company's Inverted Cone Technology that has proved so successful with TaylorMade's drivers.
