Pre-sale momentous edition replica TaylorMade Tiger Woods irons are now available for $2,000, a roughly 40 percent markup from exemplar irons.

KPS — which funded its purchase of TaylorMade half in cash and half in secured notes and contingent considerations —also has other investments that classify engineering equipment company, International Equipment Solutions, and running gear company, DexKo Global.

TaylorMade decreased to comment, while KPS and Adidas did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment after work hours.
