    Mizuno makes a wonderful MP Craft line of woods in Japan, some of the softest woods around with superb distance and control. Know for a fact that Luke Donald has tested it and REALLY liked it, but the price point is not marketable in the US. Luke Donald does get paid to play TM woods, a slightly closed driver is something any manufacturer can achieve, its not difficult, especially as a on off for a tour pro. His contract with Mizuno is one of the most flexible in golf, they’re not stupid at Mizuno, they know he is there big name on the PGA and allowing him freedom and flexibility gives them the ability to hold on to a player who might otherwise look elsewhere.

    Why do people still find it a big deal Luke doesn’t play the Mizuno line of woods? Is it a big deal Bo Van Pelt has TMAG everything but still games MP 69 irons? NO. He plays what works. I do find it funny though that driving is the weakest part of his game but all folks do is point towards his use of a white driver.

      I would say that its a big deal because anyone who is on this site talking about what clubs Pros are using is a big nerd and thats all we talk about:)

        Brockohol, Mizuno invests a lot of money and energy on producing forged irons of the highest quality. This is where they make there money and sell the most products. They are probably capable of producing a top adjustable driver, but I bet they recognise that the driver market is very hard to break into and it perhaps won’t be profitable for them to do so, therefore it is not a priority for them. One can have the same argument for why Cobra don’t make putters for Rickie Fowler.

    Huh, I guess the new JPX driver is not worth a hoot if your poster child is still using the blatantly obvious TM woods. Does TM pay him anything to use them? Its not like Phil where he blacks out the club to hide its brand. If your pulling a R1 out of the bag everyone form a mile away knows what you have in your hand.

    Why cant Mizuno make a wood that is somewhat playable/marketable? There last good/cool woods were the gold top T-Zoids. I cant even remember what any of their last 4 or 5 models looked like…

      Luke Donald’s sponsored by TM for his driver and woods, I’m pretty sure he has been since the R11-era.

      As for Mizuno’s woods, I don’t know about their drivers, but their MP-650 fairway was one of the nicest fairway metals I’ve ever hit.

      Luke donald uses the tm because you can close the faces, if you watch his videos he does not like to minipulate his swing with his hands, but father the face angle at address. Mizuno’s website videos clearly explain that it is hard to creat a wood for luke donald as he likes the face slightly closed to play a draw for extra distance where as most other players like a slightly open face

        Cool…good info.

        Although the question still remains, why cant Mizuno make a driver to accommodate this? I assume he just has a contract to wear Mizuno “name” but he has free range on clubs (putter/driver).
