Spotted: Mizuno MP-18 SC Irons



A little more than a month after Jhonnatan Vegas debuted Mizuno’s yet-to-be-announced MP-18 muscleback irons at the Masters, a cavity-back versions of the irons has appeared on the USGA’s Conforming Club List. The new irons, which are labeled MP-18 SC, are listed in both left- and right-handed versions.

It’s probably a safe bet that SC stands for “Split Cavity.” It’s also clear from the photo that the irons are constructed with Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forging Process and 1025E Carbon Steel.

9_Mar_mono08A thanks to GolfWRX Member jrshelby for bringing the new listing to our attention through his forum post.

    Seen something similar years ago, but they probably feel better.

    I am very confused with Mizuno’s mode numbering first of all and now the SC addition. What is it, a cavity-back, a specked down muscle-back or a freak of nature? Can someone tell me what the successor of the MP-25 will be called? Anyway, its time for new MPs so bring those on pronto.

    Like all Mizuno irons I bet with the right shaft flex and the ability to hit the sweet spot they will play fantastic….I finely got old enough and slow enough had to give up and go back to Pings as the sweet spot kept being missed along with the green.

    A little bit Ping iBlade looking. Not that it matters. I wonder if there is much tech under the hood.
    If not I don’t see much to get a worked up about. A design that has been around for decades.
    I’m sure they feel nice and play like a blade would and I do like to break out my old blades a play them from time to time but I just don’t see anything that says I must go out and try these.

    You know when the JPX 900 tour looks better than the new MP… Someone done goofed. Also the MP-66 should’ve been the new MP in the US not this. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it

    They look like the Snake Eyes 600C irons.

    They are nice but the don’t even come close to being as good as the PXG’s. I guess if you wanted a second tier club to the PXG’s you should buy the Mizuno.

      you may just be the coolest person I’ve ever seen comment on here. If not you must be the smartest, since you’ve never hit the new Mizuno irons, or seen them, or held them in your hand, yet you can already comment on their performance. This is me tipping my hat to your vast knowledge!…. and in case you can’t tell I’m being sarcastic.

        dumdum, oops, sorry, sumsum. Ask DJ to explain the joke to you.
        It’s super weird when you write a sarcastic comment but don’t recognize one yourself.

Forum Thread of the Day: “One driver for the rest of your life – what would it be?”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from DCMorgan89 who asks an intriguing question – if you could only play one driver for the rest of your life, what would it be? Our members weigh in with their choices, with plenty of different drivers receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JDMRN81: “G400 Max with an AD TP shaft and it’s not even close! Incredibly forgiving, low spin with a laser mid-flight.”
  • Valtiel: “I’m someone who rarely changes drivers. Several years ago it would have been a 910D3 as well, and I still plan on building up another one sometime soon. I’m hoping it will be the Mizuno ST190, but we’ll see!”
  • LONGBALL777: “Callaway Big Berta Fusion. Straightest driver ever!”
  • regiwstruk: “ST190. Just has it all.”

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop



As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
