    I swear those Artisan Putters are the most beautiful putters I have ever seen. I like how he has all the different finishes and the way he mills the face. I love my Scotty but would drop that thing in a second to put an Artisan in the bag.

    If your fancy off-the-shelf major brand clubs are not custom-built and fitted, your homemade WITB is krapola.

    If your fancy off-the-shelf major OEM brand clubs are not custom-built and fitted your homemade WITB assortment is second rate.

    If your fancy off-the-shelf major OEM brand clubs are not custom-built and fitted you might as well be swinging clubs from Walmart … your homemade WITB assortment of love clubs are third rate… ya can’t be proud of that.. 😀

      Well Blake that tape job has worked for Tiger for well over a decade so I would say its pretty damn good. Where is a video of your work I would like to see how you think is should be done!

      I don’t see the problem with it. Tape went full length of grip, then they trimmed it off.

    I’m not really familiar with the company, but they seem like great folks, people that are committed to excellence and see something bigger than themselves. I’d love to give their wedges a go.

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.
