The TaylorMade Spider Mini is coming to retail



After its Tour debut last month, the TaylorMade Spider Mini is now available for the rest of our golf bags.

In terms of size, visibly more compact, the Spider Mini it 15 percent smaller than the Spider Tour. Accordingly, center of gravity is moved from 37mm from the face of the putter to 30mm from the face of the 355 gram putter.

The Spider Mini features the aluminum Pure Roll insert, with its 45-degree-angled grooves designed for enhanced feel and truer roll.

The adjustable sole weight (sold separately) is available in 2.5-, 5-, 7.5-, 10-, 15- and 20-gram options.

“Spider Mini gives golfers a brand-new look and feel while still remaining very much a part of the Spider Tour family. It has the same Pure Roll insert and presents many of the same features that make Spider such a successful putter, but it is delivered in a scaled-down shape for those seeking a smaller footprint without sacrificing stable, high-MOI performance.” — Chris Trott, TaylorMade Tour Manager

Available in lengths of 33, 34 and 35 inches, the Spider Mini retails for $299 and is offered in both Tour Red and Diamond Silver. A SuperStroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip is standard.

The Spider Tour is TM’s most popular flatstick. As reported by Golf Digest, Golf Datatech. Two-thirds of TaylorMade’s putter sales are for the the Spider. TaylorMade is the No. 3 best-selling putter brand.

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



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.
