Interesting WITB as Mizuno's most recent pic of Vegas looks like the MP-18's are in his bag  if you zoom in. They are definitely not MP-4's he was hitting from the bunker. Mizuno's FB post yesterday makes you believe he was playing MP-18's as well.

They (PK) made the comment many times today that this week "he went back to his old irons (MP-4). He just wasn't comfortable with the new set (MP-18), he felt the loft and lie was just better with the old (MP-4)."

Looks like a good move on his part.

From Mizuno Europe website:
Jhonattan made a late switch back to an older set of Mizuno irons (MP-4’s) just prior to the win, having played the newer MP-18s at The Open Championship.  “Jhonnatan’s caddy told us that he was turning the odd shot over with his MP-18s as he’d initially requested to have them set up a little more upright.  The MP-4’s are a degree flatter and that was the small difference he needed on Sunday.  I’d imagine we’ll be seeing him very soon to match his MP-18s to the same set up.” Alex Thorne, Tour Operations Manager.

Boy the ball seems to sound different off his driver.  He swings that Nunchuk so hard, its insane.

Great looking bag. Still gaming 2 Nike holdovers and does not play with a hybrid. His bag goes from 5 wood to 4 iron, would that that would give him a large distance gap between those two clubs....

3 Wood - AeroBurner TP HL; Matrix White Tie 70x4; 16.5
Hybrid 1 - Mizuno T-Zoid FLI-HI - 21
Hybrid 2 - Maltby KE4 Tour HDI Hybrid; 25
5 iron to PW - Maltby MMB
Wedge 1 - Maltby Tour Grind MG; 52
Wedge 2 - Maltby CER; 56
Wedge 3 - Maltby M-Series; 60
Putter - Ping Zing 2

Looking thru Getty, it looks like JV has a combo set of MP 18 MB/SC’s in the bag.
