The Winning Most Irons Over The Entire 2018 PGA Tour Season


We have looked at the winning bags of every player over the entire 2018 season on the PGA Tour to see what irons was most dominant.  Majors and WGC events were included but two man and team events excluded. Where blends of irons were used, we went with the model with most clubs in the bag.

Manufacturers

The 2018 race was super tight between traditional rivals TaylorMade and Titleist.  Fittingly it was Tiger Woods that tipped the scales in TaylorMade's favour giving them the victory, with 12 wins total versus Titleist's 11.
Ping will be delighted having finished the season in third place in the constructor's championship with six wins.
Cobra and Callaway finished in a tie for fourth place with four wins apiece.
Mizuno took three wins, two of those Majors in the bag of Brooks Koopeka, while PXG and Srixon scored two wins each.

Models
The winningmost iron on the PGA Tour during the 2018 season was the TaylorMade P730 which notched up seven wins in all. Three of those came in the bag of Dustin Johnson with his "Proto" version and a further two victories came with Justin Rose.  Rory McIlroy used his P730's to win the Arnold Palmer while Jason Day won the Wells Fargo with his P730's after switching from the P750 irons with which he won The Farmers.



The second winning most model was the Titleist 718MB iron which took six wins in 2018.  Three of those came in the bag of Justin Thomas, two more with Patton Kizzire (who blended with 718CB's) and Webb Simpson won The Players with his 718MB's.

Tied for third place in the 2018 list was the Ping S55 and TaylorMade P750 irons with both models taking four wins apiece.  Ping have Bubba Watson to thank for three of their wins with Austin Cook using his S55's to win the RSM Classic.  TaylorMade P750's were in the bag of Francesco Molinari for his Quicken Loans and Open Championship wins, the aforementioned Jason Day used the P750 at The Farmers while Jon Rahm won the Career Builder with his P750 irons.

There was also a tie for fifth place between the Titleist 718 AP2 and the Cobra King One Length irons which took three wins each.  No prizes for guessing the Cobra winner, but if you need a clue he won the Memorial, Northern Trust and Dell!!  The 718 AP2 irons were victorious in the bags of Ian Poulter (Houston), Kevin Na (Greenbrier) and Michael Kim (Greenbrier).

Honourable mentions with two wins each were
