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.

    If Mizuno follows their recent trend, the JPX 919 Tours will be RH Only.

    Every detail has been intricately executed into a cutting edge design. Sweet! Looks like long irons will have small cavities for improved launch. I’m sure they will transition to solid in the short irons. Can’t Waite to try! Glove box fund is building.

    Miz grain flow forged irons are the sweetest, most buttery, exciting irons on the market.

      These Miz 919s are so beautiful I can’t wait to get my trembling hands on them. Perfect design in a perfect forged club = soft buttery feel. Only 10 days of suffering before I can buy them.

    Im a big fan of Mizuno irons, they typically have a nice balance of performance and beautiful design. These 919 irons, however, look pretty goofy. I don’t get it.

    • Mv

      I wouldn’t say goofy but they look more like something srixon would release with the sharp angles. Not a fan. I liked when they had soft angles like the mp32,64,68,69,4,5.
      It seems to go against their tradition but I understand all companies change.

    But why 919? Why not just carry on and call it 950? crazy naming

      Nope – ignored again – 919 forged though

    If the roadrunner is a cut-out, that’ll make for some cool paint fill options. Gotta say that cavity looks like a pig to clean.

  15. Travis

    Aug 17, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    Not a fan of these at all.

    I love the look of the cavity back design… it reeks with reiteration of Mizuno engineering and ne plus ultra design.

  17. Josh Patterson

    But does Koepka switch after winning multiple majors?

    • gunmetal

      Aug 17, 2018 at 10:56 pm

      If he were on staff with Mizuno there’s been a slight miniscule possibility of switching. Given that he’s not a Mizuno staffer I’d say no chance at all.

    I play the 900 tours, and they are the best irons I’ve ever hit…can’t imagine how they are better?

    • shane

      Aug 19, 2018 at 3:02 pm

      It’s all about the design of the cavity back with it’s curves and crevices…!!!

Photos of Sergio Garcia’s Ryder Cup-themed Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter

Published

on

Sergio Garcia, who was given a controversial captain’s pick to play in the 2018 Ryder Cup next week in France, is playing in the Portugal Masters this week using a new, custom Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter with European team colors. The putter has Euro-themed yellow, blue and white paint fills on the sole and back of the head, and stars that represent the European flag on the side.

Using the putter, Sergio’s off to a hot start at the Portugal Masters, played at Victoria Clube de Golfe, shooting a round of 5-under to put him at T6. He discusses the custom Toulon putter here:

Familiar with the style of putter, Sergio used a Odyssey Toulon Atlanta model to win on the European Tour last year, and has used several different Toulon models throughout 2018. The Atlanta model in particular is characterized by Odyssey as a mid-sized mallet that’s “fully milled with a multi-material aluminum sole plate and short-slant hosel.” It also has Toulon’s familiar diamond face milling.

To learn more about diamond face milling and Sean Toulon himself, check out our recent TG2 podcast with him below.

Titleist releases new Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind

Published

on

The Vokey SM7 L Grind proved to be a welcome addition for those golfers who were looking to excel around the greens on firm conditions. The enhanced heel, toe and trailing edge grind provided the lowest bounce option available from Titleist upon its release.

Now, Titleist has announced the release of their new Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind. Just like the L Grind, the latest release from Titleist is a low-bounce option designed for players with a shallow attack angle playing in firm conditions, however, the new T Grind’s dual-bounce sole allows the wedge to sit closer to the ground, making it easier to get the leading edge under the ball and promoting lift. According to Titleist, the dual bounce sole creates a narrow, forward bounce which helps to provide a gliding sensation.

The new Vokey T Grind proved a popular choice at the Open Championship earlier this year, where the conditions were firm and fast. Charley Hoffman and Cameron Smith were just two of the PGA Tour professionals who decided to put the T Grind into their bag for the test at Carnoustie, and Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill explained just why it is such a great option to have on firm golf courses:

“When we arrived at Carnoustie and saw how firm and fast the course was playing, it was clear that the T Grind was going to be a great option. Bob crafted the T Grind to have low bounce that can be easily manipulated while keeping the leading edge close to the turf. It really excels when faced with those hard, unforgiving lies.”

The limited edition 60-degree T Grind features a brand new, ultra-premium Slate Blue finish, and those who desire can even get their T Grind customized. Customers will have the option to avail of Titleist’s personalized stamping of up to 10 characters and in one of 12 paintfill colors.

The Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind is available now through Wedgeworks at Vokey.com or by custom order, starting at $250.
