A significant key to the Hot Metal design is the use of stronger and more expensive Chromoly rather than carbon steel in the manufacturing process. The stronger material allows for a multi-thickness cup face for more ball speed and distance than the previous 900 Hot Metal as well as redesigned sound ribs in the cavity for precisely tuned vibration and feel at impact.
The JPX 919 Tour is available in 3-PW in right hand only and can be fitted with a wide variety of premium no-upcharge shafts and grips.
Though Srixon has long been known for impressive forged irons the woods were always high-quality products that were often overlooked. With the new iteration including most notably the Z 785 driver things are about to change in a big way as new technologies and materials have brought ball speeds (and distance) up to the level of the longer drivers on the market.
Optics are critical to putting success — if a putter doesn’t allow you to stand comfortably at address with your eyes in a position to consistently see the target line clearly it’s not for you. Look for a model than sets your eyes either over the ball or slightly inside of it so you can see where you want it to go.
Designed for discerning players that demand a soft forged feel enhanced workability as well as added distance and forgiveness both the Z 785 and Z 585 irons should make any traditionalist happy.
As one would expect from a Mizuno blade the 919 Tour features a Grain Flow Forged HD (high density) construction from1025 Elite carbon steel for the soft responsive feel aficionados demand.
The Z 785 driver is revolutionary for Srixon for a number of reasons but mostly because it produces up to 3 mph more ball speed than the previous model yielding up to ten more yards of total distance. The key to the impressive improvement is a new Ti51AF Cup Face which is lighter and significantly stronger allowing it to be made 10% thinner for more COR and ball speed at impact.
However I’d say it’s unlikely that a new iteration of the Mini is coming any time soon. Modern fairway wood designs like TaylorMade’s M3 and M4 for example are so good and so long that former Mini players can simply find the right fit and most likely get the same or even better performance.
The Tour V.T. sole improves turf interaction as well. Both new models come standard with Nippon Modus steel shafts with a Miyazaki Kaula graphite shaft also available.
Both new TS fairway models feature similar technologies as the drivers including extremely thin crowns that are 27% thinner for lower and deeper CG locations thinner clubfaces with variable thickness for more ball speed distance and forgiveness on off center hits and better weight distribution for higher MOI and stability.
Replacing the previous Z 565 model is the new Z 585 which is designed to produce a higher straighter ball flight than the Z 785 with more forgiveness on strikes away from the enter of the clubface.
The win his second of the year puts the Ryder Cup hopeful in the FedEx Cup playoffs lead with a solid chance at the $10 million bonus. For his efforts DeChambeau took home a winner’s check for $1620000 as well as 2000 all-important FedEx Cup points.
