Made for players that demand solid Mizuno looks and feel with enhanced forgiveness and distance the new 919 Hot Metal is a progressive set with slightly larger long and mid irons and more compact short irons and wedges.
The TS fairways comes standard with a choice of Kuro Kage Black Dual Core 55 Tensei AV Series Blue 65 HZRDUS Smoke Black 70 and Even Flow T1100 White 75 shafts. Bryson DeChambeau won the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship with a 16-under-par total besting second-place finisher Justin Rose by two shots.
Comfort is maximized through the use of Puma’s proprietary Ignite foam in the midsole a design that also provides energy return with each step as well as plenty of stability during the swing.
None of the above matters if you can’t aim your putter correctly Experiment with offset and straight-in hosels — you’ll definitely aim one type better than the other. Then check the alignment marks. Do you prefer lines that run parallel to the target? How many lines? These are important questions that can best be answered through a proper fitting.
In addition both models feature an improved version of Titleist’s Active Recoil Channel technology in the sole creating more face flex particularly on low hits yielding higher launching lower spinning longer shots.
A “stability frame” design strengthens the toe and topline while optimizing perimeter weighting for improved performance on mis-hits while a more neutral CG location that’s closer to the center of the face improves performance on center strikes.
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.
Featuring the same Ti51AF Cup Face and lightweight carbon crown as the Z 785 the friendlier model comes standard with a Project X HARDUS Red shaft with an active tip section for higher trajectory shots for a wider variety of players.
We like the course-to-clubhouse-to-club versatility of these fashion-forward spikeless models as do an increasing number of Tour players. Here are our picks for the best of this athletic trend-setting bunch.
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 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 new TS2 features several design elements that contribute to making it significantly longer than the previous 917 D2 including an extremely thin titanium crown that’s approximately 20% thinner.
