Tiger Woods spotted “testing” Bryson DeChambeau’s single-length irons (and a new driver shaft)

Published

on

None other than Tiger Woods was seen “testing” one of Bryson DeChambeau’s Cobra King One-Length Irons on the range Tuesday ahead of the Genesis Open at Riviera.

So, it’s pretty much settled, then, TW is a single-length man now. You heard it here first. Stop the golf equipment news presses.

Yeah, right. Woods is a stickler for his specs, famously playing the same iron lofts since turning pro, so we don’t see him shaking that up with single-length irons in this lifetime.

Here are the photos, though, you can see Woods is smiling as he demos the iron, and the Golf Scientist seems to be having fun as well.

Much like taking a closer look at one of Jason Day’s woods at the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods, equipment enthusiast that he is, seems to like peeking in his fellow pros’ bags.

Of more interest, after a lackluster driving performance at Torrey Pines, Woods looks to be testing a Matrix Ozik TP6HDe shaft. He gamed a Matrix Ozik TP7HDe in 2015. The stock extra-stiff TP6HDe is 10 grams lighter than its TP7HDe (68 vs. 78 grams) counterpart and has a higher launch profile.

While we only spotted him with the TP6, Golfweek is reporting Woods has gone back to the TP7HDe, quoting the golfer as saying

“It’s a shaft that I knew from years past, so when I picked it up again … I know how it feels and now how it performs. I drove it great at Wyndham that year, and so that’s about it.”

Either way, Woods is ditching the Mitsubishi Tensei White CK Pro White 70 TX shaft he played in his TaylorMade M3 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

    Yous guys are friggin nuts. If Tiger used one-length he would win 4 more majors. Those recoil shafts kick like a mule!

    The “testing” in quotations means it wasn’t a real test. You people need to learn sarcasm.

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
