In order to make the necessary jump in distance the new Z F85 fairway woods are built with the same speed-enhancing Cup Face design as the new drivers as well as a lightweight carbon crown for higher MOI and enhanced forgiveness.
One of the somewhat surprising successes for Srixon in recent years was the Z U65 utility iron which very nicely blended the distance and versatility of a hybrid with the added control of an iron.
Aimed at low-handicappers and pros the 919 Tour model replaces the 900 Tour a.k.a. the Brooks Koepka model and features an improved shape with a bit thinner topline that the many Tour players who game the iron prefer.

Matching putter type to stroke shape isn’t a great fitting strategy. In fact research indicates that how you “release” the putter is much more critical.
