Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases all that Mizuno had to offer from Demo Day at the PGA Show. Currently, it’s the most popular of our PGA Show threads.

The products the Japanese company presented impressed many of our members, and here we’ll take a look at just some of the items our crew in Orlando snapped on Tuesday.

For a lot more photos and discussion on Mizuno’s products at the PGA Show, make sure to check out the entire thread here.

Concerning Mizuno’s Hot Metal Pro Irons, GolfWRX member cradd10 stated “Dear God. Be with all the sick people in the world and let those Mizuno Hot Metal Pros come in LEFT HANDED!!! Amen.”

While the new ST190 and ST190G Drivers impressed our member vman, who stated “Looking forward to testing the driver and HM pro irons, very nice at address…..good job Mizuno.”

Jayhawks221 was impressed by the woods, as well as Mizuno’s newest Golf Balls (Which we covered here) that will be hitting the U.S. market this March for the first ever time: “Mizuno golf balls?!! They are big in Asia, and I have a box!  Also, those woods look awesome.”

For willseo, he’s seen enough and knows which driver will be in his bag in 2019, “The look of that ST190 driver at address just looks so clean and neat. I will have to buy one when it comes out.”

Here are a few more treats from the forum thread, but make sure to check it out in full to see all the photos our crew took.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

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.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”
