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 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.
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.
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. A new more durable Pearl Brush finish reduces glare while providing a bit more refined look than the previous matte finish.
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.
Since Mizuno irons were number one on Tour back in the 90’s anchored by Nick Faldo Tiger Woods and numerous others who appreciated the buttery forged feel of the MP-14 and MP-29 models purists have held the brand in exceptionally high esteem.
Featuring a blade-like clubhead with a small cavity and relatively narrow sole the Z 785 has more mass behind the sweetspot for improved versatility as well as a new Tour V.T. sole that improves turf interaction.
And for those fans of the sneaky good Z U65 utility irons there’s a new and improved Z U85 version that functions equally well from both the fairway and the tee. So check out the new Z Series from Srixon – maybe one will find a place in your bag sooner than later.
Remember the Mini came in 12° 14° and 16° models and had a 43.5″ shaft. If you want something like that a custom-fitted M4 fairway might be about right except it will probably offer even more ballspeed and forgiveness.
All of them feature the company’s signature RifleScope alignment technology. Happy also focuses on alignment by offering a customizable design. Bloodline putters feature a unique weighting design that allows the putter to stand up on it’s own so you can get behind the ball and check your aim.
Now Mizuno is launching a newly revamped JPX 919 line with a traditional look and impressive technologies that make the three new models worth a serious look for players of all handicap levels.
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.
