Reader Question: Does Perry really play game-improvement clubs?

"There is no way Perry uses the R7s, those are for mid handicappers.  He has got to play the R7 TPs.  Anyone able to confirm this?"

As surprising as it might seem, Kenny Perry does use TaylorMade’s standard r7 irons. The r7 TP irons have a small "TP" logo near the toe; Perry’s clubs do not have it. Click on the photo to enlarged it and get a better look. I magnified one club to give you a close-up look.
In GOLF Magazine’s 2007 ClubTest, comments about the r7 irons included:

Superior distance and distance control; minimizes mistakes; hit it
anywhere on face and expect a reasonable result; delivers subtle
information to hands; could use more feedback on good and bad shots;
acceptable playability.
