TaylorMade launches TP Red Putter Collection to be sold at retail

Published

on

TaylorMade set the putter industry on fire with its all-red Spider Tour putters when Jason Day found incredible success on the greens while using one. In response to public demand, the company sold a retail version, and then eventually released the Jason Day replica version. Sergio Garcia also used the Spider Tour Red putter to win The Masters, and it seemed, for a short time at least, that you couldn’t win on Tour if you weren’t using the red Spider.

During the red-Spider craze, TaylorMade also released a line of premium, classic-style putters called the TP Collection. Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and Garcia each employed different versions of the TP putters at various times throughout 2017.

Recently, we’ve seen prototype putters pop up in the bags of Jason Day and Justin Rose, combining the TP Collection name and styles with the all-red color design that made the Spider Tour putters popular; a new, hybrid of designs, if you will. In August, Rose began using a red Chaska prototype, and Jason Day has been spotted recently using a red “Ardmore 2” prototype putter.

Now, and seemingly again in response to public demand, TaylorMade has launched a TP Red Putter Collection that will sell at retail. The collection consists of five different Ardmore models, and one Chaska model — nearly identical to the one Justin Rose has been gaming. The heads are made from 304 stainless steel, and they’re made with different sightlines and hosel designs for different player preferences, and to ultimately help the player achieve better alignment.

Each of the putters has a head weight of 355 grams, 3.5 degrees of loft, a 70-degree lie angle, and comes available in either 34 or 35 inches. The putters have interchangeable sole weights to adjust mass, and the faces come with TaylorMade’s popular Pure Roll insert, which is made from 6061 aluminum and has grooves that sit at a 45-degree angle to help impart optimal spin.

The TP Red Collection putters will be available on September 29 for $219 (MSRP) each, and they come stock with SuperStroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grips.

Mizuno JPX 919 Tour Forged, 919 Forged, and 919 Hot Metal hit USGA’s conforming list

Published

on

As alerted by our always investigative GolfWRX Forum Members, three new Mizuno JPX irons have shown up recently on the USGA Conforming Clubs list; JPX 919 Forged (there is no image of the RH version, but there is of the LH), JPX 919 Hot Metal (and LH), and a JPX 919 Tour Forged iron.

Although still unannounced and unreleased by Mizuno, it’s likely these JPX 919 irons will be the replacements for the previous JPX 900 series. If you remember, Brooks Koepka won back-to-back U.S. Opens using JPX 900 Tour irons; now, it seems there may be a replacement for that iron on the way, judging by the USGA Conforming List.

Check out the Mizuno JPX 919 irons below, as listed on the USGA Confirming list.

SPOTTED: Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons

Published

on

Photos have recently popped up in our GolfWRX Forums of Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons. It’s been nearly two years since the company released it’s previous Z565, Z765 and Z965 irons, so it’s possible (if not likely), based on nomenclature, these could be the replacements for that series.

The photos in our forums show Z785 short irons (5-PW) and Z785 long irons (4 and 3), but it does not appear that the Z785 irons shown in the photos are driving irons, so it’s likely these photos come from a mixed set.

We do not have any official tech or release information about new irons from Srixon at this time, so we’re left to speculate for the time being. What do you think about the photos of these Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons?

Check out the photos of each below, and click here for more photos and discussion.
