Other features of the new Hot Metal include the aforementioned “stability frame” design for higher MOI and improved launch as well as Mizuno’s new Pearl Brush non-glare finish.
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.
As a result the TS2 and TS3 drivers represent a whole new level of speed and distance for the company’s big sticks. In addition are TS2 and TS3 fairway woods which benefit from the “speed project” almost as much as the drivers.
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.
Because the Z U85 features a more iron-like design than typical hybrid clubs it can easily be blended with the other Z irons for a truly customized set. Lofts available include 18° 20° 23° 26° and 29° all with UST Recoil 95 graphite shafts as standard.
Since then however the JPX 900 models most notable the Forged Tour have been a huge hit with all kinds of players including two-time US Open champ Brooks Koepka.
The Mini Driver which TaylorMade offered in SLDR and AeroBurner models was a very cool product. It nicely bridged the gap between a driver and fairway wood. For a lot of players that was a perfect fit as the added loft and shorter shaft of the Mini gave them exactly what they needed.
As is the case with the drivers the TS2 fairway features a fixed CG location that’s low and deep for high launching mid-spin shots while the TS3’s CG can be customized via Titleist’s SureFit CG technology. In general the TS3 will produce a slightly lower trajectory than the TS2 and offers more shot shaping versatility.
This is DeChambeau’s second consecutive win in the FedExCup Playoffs giving him a big leg up on the competition for the $10 million bonus. For his trouble DeChambeau took home 2000 FedEx points and a winner’s check for $1620000.
For those who see the athletic breathable design as “just a sneaker” the Ignite PWRSPORT also features a very strong lightweight TPU saddle and a thinner TPU material in high-stress areas for Tour-like performance in all types of turf conditions.
To remedy that situation the folks at Titleist started the “Titleist Speed Project” a plan to develop faster woods that provide maximum distance higher launch and ultra-competitive performance overall.
But when the company introduced the JPX line a few years back some questioned the look of the matte finish and where the new sticks fit in with the vaunted MP line.
