O'Hair's irons get unveiled

The before and after of Sean O'Hair's TaylorMade irons.

By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Insider

Sean O'Hair's TaylorMade RocketBladez Tour irons received a makeover on Tuesday at the Farmers Insurance Open. The four-time PGA TOUR winner had been playing TaylorMade's latest irons since last October, when he became the first staffer to put the then-prototype in the bag at the Shriners Hospital Children’s Open.

At the time, TaylorMade had no interest in releasing the identity of its latest creation. So in an effort to hide the name and design of the yet-to-be-released iron, the company decided to add a camouflage badging to each club.

Since he put the irons in play last October, the camouflage badging has been a staple of O'Hair's set. But after months of playing the irons, TaylorMade's Tour staff figured it was time to swap out the camouflage badging for the the new RocketBladez Tour badging.

Once O'Hair felt comfortable with the change -- TaylorMade's staff assured him the badge swap wouldn't affect performance and playability -- the Tour staff took the time to pop the camouflage badging off each irons and replace it with the updated RocketBladez Tour version.

O'Hair has the irons with the new badging in play this week at the Farmers Insurance Open.
