A lot of guys going to the JPX900 Tour.  Says an awful lot about the line that used to be viewed as Mizuno's more "game improvement" side.  I know Mizuno will tell you JPX is more the technology line while MP is more the purity line, but still seeing tour players switch out of MP is pretty incredible, I think.

Interesting to see yet another guy, who has obviously been given a chance to test the 2017 M family, immediately put the '17 M1 3w in play.  But kept his 2016 M2 driver in the bag.

I've posted this before, in my opinion, the JPX900 Tours are a direct competitor to the AP2's, the forged are a bit more game improvement, and the hot metals are more in line with the AP1's.

For Luke to put the 900 Tour irons in the bag just shows me how good they must be.
Luke does not change irons very often.
  Seams like he has been a TM driver guy for a long time now.
Better performance or Tee up $$$$? Or both?

No name player cares about $1500. Luke is a millionaire 30 times over. He, and every other name player play what gives them the best chance to win, unless contractually obligated otherwise. Tee up money of any kind is 100% irrelevant to anyone who's name you recognize.

For someone who was an MP Line player , FOREVER, to see him make the change to the new JPX line shows alot about the line and what Mizuno brings to the table. THink about it, alot of players have Mizunos in their bag but wont sign the contract to be Staffers.

Yeah, he's been playing that Accra or a version of it for years.  Glad to see him sticking with it.  He's played S300 forever so it's probably that.

Well, he has been paid to use the Taylormade driver in the past. Just checked the Taylormade staff site and he's not listed there currently (not sure if that's accurate), he still has them as a partner on his personal webpage.

I think as far as drivers go, you know Taylormade is always going to have a very competitive product so if they've historically paid more than others, might as well go for it. Probably covers your expenses if you miss the cut that week.

There's certainly a difference between being on staff and tee up pennies. That difference is about 500k vs 25k a season.

If I remember correctly from a Mizuno video a long time ago he plays S300s. They probably just slap a generic Tour Issue sticker on them.

LD has had them in the bag in the past but they never seem to last. Its a shame because they make some great woods. I remember seeing a WITB just last year with an old school mizuno fairway wood in the bag but I can't think of his name.

Pretty sure Faldo is playing the 900 forged and not the tour.

Better performance or Tee up $$$$? Or both?

No name player cares about $1500. Luke is a millionaire 30 times over. He, and every other name player play what gives them the best chance to win, unless contractually obligated otherwise. Tee up money of any kind is 100% irrelevant to anyone who's name you recognize.

Well, he has been paid to use the Taylormade driver in the past. Just checked the Taylormade staff site and he's not listed there currently (not sure if that's accurate), he still has them as a partner on his personal webpage.

I think as far as drivers go, you know Taylormade is always going to have a very competitive product so if they've historically paid more than others, might as well go for it. Probably covers your expenses if you miss the cut that week.

If he was getting paid by TM I would think he would have TM head covers not the Mizuno ones.
