    How could you let yourself go so much? She looks 20 years older than what she is and is 100 plus overweight.

    Not that she is young, but she looks so old for her age. Really fat too! Gross 🙁

    This thing is the same age as Brad Pitt? WTF? She looks older than my 75 year old grandmother.

    I saw Laura in person for the first time at the 1991 Mazda Championship in Bethesda, MD. The temperature was in the 90s and humid but she strolled with confidence wearing a sleeveless sweater over a polo. She seems very down to earth, and has always had my respect as a person and a professional golfer.

      She wore the sweater in the 90 degree weather because she is f at as h ell. Nobody wants to see that blubber jiggle all over the place. If Laura wore a regular golf shirt it would be very disturbing to see. I would say more disturbing than the planes flying into the WTCs on 9 11.

    God Bless her…She’s awesome. Funny, can hang with ANYONE…Whole lotta shaking goin’ on with that swing..

    Bad back, bad hip – got it done for years. I show her swing to many of my ‘Xlarge’ students & with my 14 broken bones & 7 ortho surgeries – most military & 9/11 first responder injuries – and introduce it as “Here’s me in drag”… 😉

    Judging by a couple of pics online the putter looks like an Odyssey Exo Rossie, an English website is saying Odyssey Red Ball

    Has anyone ever seen Laura Davies and Colin Montgomery at the same time? Makes one wonder if they aren’t one in the same?

      Wait a minute, better yet, there’s a Senior LPGA Tour?

    Interesting. I’d think she’d play the more forgiving parallax in the 2 iron and then have the 4-9 irons as the Lynx Tour (which is a pure blade, from what I can see on Lynx’s website). Sure you didn’t get these mixed up?

    The new Lynx line of irons looks pretty strong for a first year comeback. Too bad these will likely not make it to Canada. Would lobe to try out the Prowler VT’s!

GolfWRX Spotted: 2021 Mizuno ST-Z and ST-X drivers on USGA Conforming List

Published

on

When it comes to drivers, Mizuno isn’t usually the company that comes to the top of mind for many golfers, but starting with the ST-190, and then the ST-200 series in 2020, they have quickly changed the perception of their metal woods thanks to wins on tour and more players choosing to put them in play—most recently Brandt Snedeker as a non-contracted player.

This morning, with the update of the USGA and R&A conforming equipment lists, we are getting a sneak peek at what Mizuno will have in store for 2021 with the release of the ST-Z and ST-X drivers.

What we know

Based on the information provided in the USGA submission by Mizuno, the ST-X will only be available in right-handed (10.5 and 12-degree lofts), while the ST-Z will be available in both right (9.5  and 10.5 degrees) and left-handed (9.5 degrees only).

ST-Z

Based on the images from the USGA list and our experience with the Mizuno product line, it appears that the ST-Z is the next step in the evolution of the standard ST200 with no adjustable CG but with a customizable weight in the back of the head.

We haven’t seen any images of a moveable weight driver in this new ST series, so it could be that the G-woods are getting phased out in favor of more internally biased weighting, but since those types of drivers often take a bit more time to get just right, it could be a matter of time before a “G” type driver hits the list.

As for technology, it has Mizuno’s standard wave to create flexibility behind the face, an adjustable hosel, and based on the images, more carbon fiber used around the head compared to previous generations, especially on the sole. I would also expect to hear a new face material or design story to complete the package and to boost MOI and ball speed.

ST-X

Based on the image from the USGA list and our experience, it appears that the ST-X is the next step in the evolution of the ST200-X driver, which is the lighter weight, more upright, and draw-biased driver from Mizuno. Don’t think draw bias always means it’s for higher handicaps either, because Mizuno staff player Chris Kirk got along very nicely with his out on the Korn Ferry and PGA Tours in 2020, including a win.

The tell-tale sign is the more heel biased weight in the back of the driver and what looks to be some sort of textured area to create “visible technology” towards the heel of the clubhead.

Beyond being draw-biased, when it comes to technology, it shares a lot of similarities to the ST-Z with Mizuno’s standing wave to create flexibility behind the face, an adjustable hosel, and more carbon fiber used around the head compared to previous generations, especially on the sole, and in the case of the ST-X, on the sole.

We don’t have any information on the release of these new drivers, but considering Mizuno didn’t adjust product release schedules in 2020, I would imagine it will be doing the same in 2021, and we can expect to hear more about these ST drivers either late 2020 or early into 2021.

5 hybrid vs 5 iron – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the logic behind removing their 5 iron from their bag. WRXer ‘rwl’ asks whether any fellow members have experiences doing so, and WRXers have been sharing their thoughts and experiences in our forum.

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.

  • RobertL.: “I replaced my 5 iron with a 5 hybrid. I find it far easier to hit than my 5 iron. I also took my 6 iron out of the bag, so now my longest iron is a 7. I now carry a 3, 4, and 5 hybrid since they’re so much easier to hit than long irons. Makes a big difference for this senior golfer.”
  • JohnKHawk: “For last 2 seasons I’ve played with a Cobra F9 5 hybrid. It’s 24 degrees & gaps perfectly between Cobra OS 3-4 hybrid at 20.5 degrees & Apex19 6 iron which is 26.5 degrees. The 5 iron was just getting to be to undependable. Misses with the 5 hybrid were more playable than the 5 iron. Use what works best for your game.”
  • Abe21599: “Never a bad idea to have both a 5i and 5h options in the trunk, just gotta watch lofts.”
  • nitram: “I know it sounds so “old man” but if you want to make a change in your 5-iron slot and can’t seem to get along with a hybrid, give the 9-wood a try. You may be pleasantly surprised.”
