TaylorMade P Series UDI and DHY driving irons review

When it comes to longer irons, we all like forgiveness and something a little easier to hit. Whether it’s from the fairway or the tee, that’s exactly what you can expect with the new TaylorMade P Series UDI and DHY. 

The new TaylorMade P series Utility Driving Iron and Driving Hybrid are the latest additions to the P Series family, and they look awesome. Offering more forgiveness and not just aimed at the better player. These are going to appeal to a wide range of golfers looking for a driving iron in 2024.

The First Look 

If there was an award for looks in the driving iron department, the UDI and DHY would clean up. They have a similar look to the P790 irons, but both are clearly different in shape and have that pearl satin finish and black mirror ridge running across the back.

The DHY has a wider sole, a higher toe height with a slightly bigger back and nice top line which just looks inviting and forgiving. The UDI looks clean and is slightly more compact than the P790 but you can tell it packs a punch.

The Tech 

Here is what TaylorMade has to say about their latest releases.

Both P Series utility clubs feature similar technologies. The UDI and DHY are both designed to deliver easy launch, increased forgiveness and enhanced consistency. They also have a new internal weighting structure which combines in the forged hollow body construction with a high-speed 4140 face, SpeedFoam Air, Thru Slot Speed Pocket and up to 26g of tungsten mass. A thick-thin back wall construction, sound stabilisation bar, and strategically placed mass maximises forgiveness in the clubhead. Each club is individually optimised with every gram strategically placed to achieve specific performance goals with premium forged feel.  

The irons really start to differ with the CG position. The UDI has mid centre of gravity right behind the centre face to create a more penetrating mid-to-lowball flight, while DHY has a lower centre of gravity to produce an easier to launch mid-to-high ball flight. Compared to a hybrid or high lofted fairway, the trajectory of UDI and DHY are still on the lower end. TaylorMade’s testing shows that the UDI is more forgiving than P790 and the DHY is the most forgiving iron in the entire TaylorMade iron family. 

“As we look to the future, beyond the tech and the design language, we are excited about repositioning our utility irons into the P·Series family. P·UDI is an easy pair for players that currently play P·Series product and P·DHY is an extremely forgiving option for players of all skill levels. It is a natural fit to give these players the performance in this category that they are looking for.”–Matt Bovee, Director of Product Creation, Iron and Wedge

The bunkered verdict 

I’m a huge fan of both of these designs. TaylorMade say the DHY is the most forgiving iron in their line-up, which is quite a statement.

What I love about these clubs is the sound and feel. They feel amazing off the face and the ball fizzes off into the distance. I was surprised at just how forgiving the DHY was, it’s so easy to hit and get in the air. It’s a great club that will be in the bags of not just low to mid handicappers but higher handicappers as well.

The UDI is what I would put in my bag as I like to play a 2-iron. It’s compact, looks awesome at address and comes off like a rocket. It’s workable and with a penetrating ball flight, you’ll love hitting stingers and flighting it low. The distances are impressive but so is the forgiveness in this driving iron. This is a great option for low to mid handicappers looking for a club that is lower in flight, workable and forgiving.
