Like the fairway woods the Z-series hybrids are not adjustable but come in a selection of lofts including 16° 19° and 22° models. Project X HZRDUS Black 85 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips come standard.
Always known for stylish athletic shoes Adidas is a leader in spikeless designs evidenced this season by its Sport BOOST 3. Worn regularly around the world by Justin Rose among others the shoe features highly breathable waterproof uppers for dry feet in a variety of weather conditions as well as a Puremotion outsole design with external traction elements for enhanced grip and stability.
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.
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. Bottom line: If the putterface is square to the target line at impact it doesn’t matter what it does during the rest of the stroke. Selecting the correct hosel can make all the difference here.
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.
Putters with more forgiveness and stability like larger mallets typically provide superior distance control because they maintain consistent ball speed and roll even on mis-hits. Unless you’re exceptionally accurate with your contact point (repeatable impact in the center of the putterface) don’t fall overly in love with the more traditional head shapes.
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.
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.
According to Brian Schielke marketing director at Srixon Golf the newest line of Z Series woods don’t simply represent an evolutionary improvement over the company’s past models but rather a “revolutionary” one and for good reason.
A versatile iron that can fit a wide variety of players from pros to better weekend warriors the 919 Forged fits snugly between the Tour and Hot Metal models. Built with the same Grain Flow Forged HD method as the Tour the Forged is made from Boron infused steel which is approximately 30% stronger than carbon steel.
The newest version also features a forged construction similar to the Z 585 and Z 785 irons but is built with a hollow club head and high-strength face insert that allows the club to behave more like a wood. What this means is higher launch higher flight and more distance for a wide variety of players.
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.
