TaylorMade adidas Golf has announced the

launch of the new TaylorMade Burner 2.0 irons. The Burner 2.0 irons have been designed to offer the same trademark Burner distance as previous models but with greater levels of feel and playability.

TaylorMade has engineered each iron individually so that important performance attributes are felt through the different clubs in the set. With the centre of gravity lower and deeper in the long irons, players can expect better ball flights from long range and greater control and feel in the short irons. The sole has been designed to help improve turf drag for a better strike.

Bret Wahl, TaylorMade's senior director of iron research and develop said, "we've succeeded at creating a better-performing iron with the Burner 2.0, which is just as long, easier to play and more refined in its' feel and sound."

Crucially, TaylorMade's own stock shafts offer different kick points through the set. This means that in the long irons the kick point is lower to help promote a higher flight. Alternatively, in the short irons a higher kick point promotes control.

TaylorMade's new Burner 2.0 irons will come with a recommended retail price of £549 in steel and £649 in graphite.

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
