    Looks like he just might pick up a hat sponsor soon. He gets paid for putting a Cally driver in his bag.

    Get the yardage and hit it . Great guy but really needs to speed it up just a tad. The talk between himself and his caddie is priceless .

    Congrats on the win Kevin, one of the nice guys on Tour. But for Gods sake get an alarm on your watch and speed up, it is tiring to see you on the clock every Tournament.

    Love seeing the sponsor-less mixed bag guys winning. It is very surprising that one of the top Korean male golfers doesn’t have more sponsors. Definitely seems like a good guy too. Love the banter with his caddy.

      Me too. The banter is funny. Every amateur golfer can relate with it.

    Is it just me or is his GBB Epic driver actually smaller than the retail version?

      It’s just you. You’ve been staring at Rogue too long lmao

      There was a 440cc version of the Epic that was available to the pros but never put out in retail. Phil used it for a while last year as did Alex Noren. I’m sure there were others.

      Most of the pros use clubs that are different to retail. I’ve used some tour issue Taylor gear in the past that was unrecognisable besides the logos paint job etc.

    Seems like a really good guy, very good player. Congrats!

    When did Kevin Na stop playing his 917 Driver & switch to Callaway Epic ?

    • Man

      That’s why he won, obviously. And his 3 wood change

      Switched right before the AT&T. Got it done at Aloha Golf in Vegas. I was in the shop watching him get fit for it on Trackman and he was moving it compared to his 917.

    54* and 60*, nothing between the 54 and PW. I’ve noticed this with a few pros, any thoughts?

    • Fingers

      Jul 9, 2018 at 12:25 am

      And i thought i was the only weirdo that had just a 54 and 60. For me it works perfectly.
      Full swing yardages are PW=125, 54*=110 and 60*=85.
      50-60 yards (which i rarely leave myself) is around 1/2 54* or 3/4 60*
      30-40 yards is around 1/2 60*
      And if i want to get real technical with distance ill hit them up or down
      Since im good at random boneheaded moves at times i try to K.I.S.S.

      For those who feel they need a bit more length and better gapping in the longer clubs, this is what they’ll do, and compensate on the short end with working harder to knock down shots and gripping down, etc.

    More great face shots …way to go

New Mitsubishi Chemical ZF shaft in play at the Tour Championship

Published

on

Even after winning just a week ago, Justin Thomas has put a new MCA Diamana ZF-Series shaft into play for the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup Final this week at East Lake Golf Club. JT is using the 60g TX version in his 9.5-degree Titleist TS2 driver (see Thomas’ BMW Championship-winning WITB here).

MCA has confirmed the new shaft and given us some great information on why it is are adding this fourth profile to the Diamana line—something the company has never done before.

The new Diamana ZF has taken the easy loading bend profile from the BF-Series and tweaked it in certain spots along the length to further maximize the design and find greater performance for players across swing speed ranges.

“The result is a profile that makes ZF a little more explosive and easier to accelerate.” -Mark Gunther, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MCA GOLF.

Like the other shafts in the Diamana Fourth Gen. Series, the Diamana ZF shafts owe their stiffness and stability to two unique technologies. First: the MCA-developed MR70 carbon fiber material, and the second: Boron fiber. MR70 is found in both the butt and tip sections of the shaft and is 20 percent stronger than conventional materials, with a 10 percent greater modulus (a measure of stiffness). These designs have additional strength thanks to Boron fiber in the tip section to create the exact EI curve desired.

When you compare the new ZF to Diamana BF-Series, the ZF-Series shafts are a slightly stronger profile and built to have increased stability in both the butt and tip sections. They feature a softer, more active middle for better energy transfer and clubhead acceleration.

A cool feature for those looking to get a bit more distance but are on the lower end of the swing speed spectrum: There will also be a 40-gram version of the ZF, which is the lightest shaft of the fourth generation Diamana family.

“We’re extremely happy to have a 40g option within Diamana™ ZF,” says Gunther. “This opens the performance benefits of these unique Mitsubishi Chemical materials to a whole new range of players who prefer to play an ultra-lightweight shaft.”

Mitsubishi Diamana ZF-Series Availability and Specs

Diamana ZF-Series will be available September, 13 2019 at MCA GOLF authorized retailers and dealers nationwide, with a suggested retail price of $400.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Are 919 forged irons really that good?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from 9ironiscash who asked fellow members what they thought about Mizuno’s 919 forged ironsOur members dish out their experiences gaming the irons, with the majority of WRXers answering with a resounding yes to 9ironiscash’s original question.

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

  • Gmack1973: “I think the 919 forged are great irons. I play to a handicap of 4 and think I’m not a bad ball striker. I had the tours 6-pw, and they were great but a bit unforgiving if you don’t get them out the middle. I now have 919 forged 4 – PW and couldnt be happier. They have the Nippon Modus 120 stiff shafts.”
  • Gofguy224: “They are great irons! Had them for about a month and I’ve already shot 3 of my lowest scores ever! Very forgiving and they feel buttery soft
  • chjyner: “The whole 919 range is probably the best on the market “
  • PowerCobra98: “I like them. Moved from Apex 19’s into 919 Forged. I’ll likely be looking at a set of MP20 HMB’s though.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your last ever set of irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Nickc who asks fellow WRXers what they would choose if their next set of irons were the last clubs they could use. Some of our members mention a range of different irons which they would love to splash out on, while others choose between a set of clubs already in their possession.

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.

  • cfasucks: “If I had only 1 set to play with for the rest of my life it would probably be my 845s. They are great feeling and forgiving when I’m not at the top of my game, and they’re built like tanks.”
  • kekoa: “At this point, I’d have to choose Seven MB’s. At a price tag of about $4,000 4-PW I wouldn’t be able to afford another set.”
  • bodhi555: “That would be my VR Pros, as they do everything I need an iron to do. Feel awesome, let me get away with not being precisely on the centre of the face, look great and seem to go as far as some distance irons I’ve tried.”
  • Lumberjack627: “Think I’m going to get 790s, and that would be it for me.”
