Taylormade PSi Tour Irons
The PSi Tour's are a good looking set of irons with plenty of punch. They feel and sound beautiful on generally good strikes and are long enough to keep up with the long hitting 'Jones'. Workability is fantastic, one can be confident to attack the riskier targets with the PSi Tour's. At the slightly higher price than competitors they're still of good value to the low handicap player. Thumbs up.
Pros and Cons
- Relatively long primarily due to the cut-through sole that increases flex at impact
- Inspired by the help of leading professionals in terms of design and playability characteristics
- Attractive intermediate top line and little offset
- Incredibly soft feel on center strikes at impact
- Not exceptionally forgiving
- If you are a poor ball striker or handicapped over 5, then forget these puppies. They are only targeted at the best amateurs and professionals

Taylormade PSI Tour Irons Detailed Review
Design & Appearance
TaylorMade’s PSi Tour irons are fully forged from 1025 Carbon Steel and have a more compact head shape that better players prefer. Compared to the RSi TP irons, they are significantly more compact at address, more closely resembling TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred MB irons.
One beautiful feature is the slots on either side of the groove structure on the club-face, these frame the ball at address really well and psychologically aid your confidence.
To make the pair of slots in the face less obtrusive to better players, TaylorMade thinly milled them. The face slots allow the hitting surface to flex more at impact, like those found in the standard Taylormade and last season’s RSi irons.
On the sole of the 3- through 7-iron, players will find another slot that Taylormade calls a Speed Pocket. These design features provide more bang for your buck at impact!
Control / Feel
The PSi Tour irons have a ‘thin-ish’ top line, but there is enough meat there to know that they aren’t blades or extremely difficult to hit.
The little offset coupled with a narrow sole promotes greater workability and trajectory control. Being a forged set, the feel is almost always going to be soft and these are no different… exceptionally soft and beautifully quiet at impact.
Taylormade PSi (Players Slot Iron) now features a cut through slot that connects with the undercut cavity to enable it to flex more and maintain ball speed across the face.
When not hit out the middle the club does not feel great at all and unfortunately the distance loss when struck off center is penalizing.
This is especially important to consider if you are not a great ball striker as the PSi irons will make your game that much harder than it already is…
Value for Money
A tad on the expensive side retailing at around the $1300 mark, so in terms of value for money the Taylormade PSI Tour Irons don’t rank as high some of their competitors… even pricier than the Callaway Apex Pro 16’s, which is quite a surprise. That being said it is a solid outfit and if you like Taylormade and have the extra cash then they won’t let you down!
One interesting sales pitch with the PSi irons is that any player who wins a *tournament will have the badges in the club-head swopped out for golf plated badges, which in turn will add to the sentimental and perhaps monetary value of the set.
