From MizunoEurope.com, Mitchell was as surprised as anyone that he made a driver switch heading into 2019.  Driving had a been a strength for him through 2018.

Driving was my best category last year – I walked into testing to do ‘Cookie’ (Mizuno, PGA Tour Manager Jeff Cook) a favour, give him some numbers and leave.  It turned out to be the easiest change I’ve ever made – on the one club I never thought I would switch.  The ST190 was faster, straighter and more forgiving than what I was playing.  I’ve used it ever since and haven’t considered taking it out.

    New mizuno driver is as good or better than anything out there. Shame they don’t have the $ to market it, or anything for that matter. Can’t wait for mine to come in…anyone need a tour issue m6?
