Brooks Koepka had Mizuno JPX 900 Tour irons in his bag for his US Open victory. Will anyone notice since he wasn't sponsored by Mizuno. To me it is even more of an endorsement because he chose those irons.

The new JPX 900 series was just flat hammered out of the park by Mizuno.

3 iron sets that cover from a 30cap to a Tour Pro.   Some need to let it go with being all up in arms that they are JPX, and the Boron complaints.

Interesting that none of the Nike guys are playing their Nike clubs.  I understand that Nike has no tour van, no on site support, but no Nike's in play may help explain why Nike left the business.

Fleetwood was playing his Nike Flex driver, and also had what appeared to be a Vapor Pro 3 wood, not sure on irons.

I saw this and went to their website to read about the 900 series. One thing I couldn't find but am curious about was the handicap range suggestions for their irons. I really like that they do that and it gives me a better sense of where I should be looking. Anyone know about this in relation to the 900 series? I'm assuming the tour version is for single digit and below with a slight overlap with the regular 900s etc. but would just like to know.

I'm scratch (approx 0-+1) and after a fitting and on course testing I choose the 900 forged over the tour. On the range I hit them both very well with the Tours being somewhat shorter due to their design and lofts. On the course however the extra forgiveness of the 900 Forged won me over. On a shot from the center I liked them both the same but on shots anywhere but there (who hits the center every time?) the Tour went significantly shorter. Note however that these shots were all with a 6 iron. I've heard of people getting the forged mid-irons and tour short-irons. I considered that as well but I also wanted a gap wedge and the tour is not available in a gap wedge.

I'm a 4.6 and I started with the combo set - 4-7Forged, 7-PWTour.  I play my PW at 47* so I had the Forged bent to the lofts (and length/lie adjusted) to my typical 3-6 iron. I just couldn't get along with the forged half. I'm very offset sensitive and I just could not get a consistent strike with the Forged. I bought the 4/5/6 Tour irons (and use a TMB 3 iron) and the consistency found me. Gotta play what works...even if it's an expensive lesson!

Full disclosure - I was fit into the forged and chose the combo set.

I don't give a hoot what irons some pro uses.  Those guys can break par with a set of Kmart specials and what they use has no impact on my game.  

Nike made some great clubs, and their "Oven" crew worked to get each pro outfitted so they could perform their best.  I have no doubt that Kopeka would have won with whatever irons he chose to play.

I don't think the clubs win majors, but it's 99% mental for those guys.  Once they get something working it's not wise to change, strictly golf speaking.  Financially it's very wise.  Hard to turn down the kind of money they throw at you.

Here in lies the problem with getting fit with a 6 iron only... an hour fitting session and I have no Idea how I will hit the PW...

I know Vosh is ecstatic about the win. I just saw him at Dave Chappelle on Wednesday night. To think his team's irons would win a major just a few days later is crazy now that I look back. He did a great job and I'm sure Brooks would agree.

I used to play to a 3 hcp years ago but now am probably around a 10. I was fitted for JPX 900 Tours and can't say enough good things about them. I did hit both the Forged and Tours and offcenter strikes to me were not as punishing (Tours) as opposed to the Forged.  I don't mind the traditional lofts because they are nearly the same as my previous MP-60's that I've been gaming for the past 10 or so years.

I've never believed in certain handicap ranges can or cannot hit certain clubs, it's all about how good/bad a ball striker you are. A buddy of mine has played Nike Blades for years and flushes them just about every time. He just doesn't score well because his tee shots get him in trouble and his short game is terrible.

The lofts on the forged are jacked.  The tours are more traditional - essentially MP like.  Strangely I find the forged to feel a bit softer - boron an all.  Hmm.

I agree 100%.  My handicap says I should play blades but I'm such a terrible ball striker, there's no way I'd be able to keep my handicap if I played blades.

I have had several sets of their clubs over the years and liked them all.  Now I'm playing mp5 and can't say enough about them...long irons included.  Yes, they are a tad big IMO but paired with c taper lite their was no weird transition and build confidence quickly.  Hopefully I can try the 900 line..although I would have zero idea what to do with jacked lofts.  I just hope BK does not screw up and change anything...not worth it based on history of others.

The lofts on the forged are jacked.  The tours are more traditional - essentially MP like.  Strangely I find the forged to feel a bit softer - boron an all.  Hmm.

I am a lower HC player that hasn't been out much in the last 10 months due to work and family obligations... for the fun of it, I took the 900 tours out for a spin yesterday morning based on BK's success (I knew my playing partners would give me sh#$), and I come away from the round thinking I want to keep them in the bag now.  Playing partners said, "so why aren't you playing them?"

The feel and control of flight was incredible.  Renewed honeymoon and all, I feel like they may have booted out the 770/750 combo set now.  I'm so confused. :swoon:

I have had several sets of their clubs over the years and liked them all.  Now I'm playing mp5 and can't say enough about them...long irons included.  Yes, they are a tad big IMO but paired with c taper lite their was no weird transition and build confidence quickly.  Hopefully I can try the 900 line..although I would have zero idea what to do with jacked lofts.  I just hope BK does not screw up and change anything...not worth it based on history of others.

The MP 5's are so good as well. The 900 Tours just seem to have a bit more forgiveness on toe strikes for me (yes, hit plenty of shots about 1/4-1/2" toward the toe yesterday that didn't end up offline or all that short).  I don't think you can go wrong with either if you have the right shaft.  My Tours have DG AMT, and the 5's have C-Taper,  If you told me I could only keep one set I would have trouble making that choice.

Brooks Koepka had Mizuno JPX 900 Tour irons in his bag for his US Open victory. Will anyone notice since he wasn't sponsored by Mizuno. To me it is even more of an endorsement because he chose those irons.

The average 100 shooter who walks in a golf shop has no idea what equipment he used
TM M2 9.5 - Fuji Xclr8
TM Sldr mini 14 tp
Cobra baffler - atx tour blue
Cleveland Hibore Xli 3,4,5
Srixon Z545 6-AW (KBS Tour)

I think it depends on his personality, but based on what I've read, I wouldn't blink an eye if he took cash from TM and switched to 770's or 750's. He's "not a golf nerd" and "finds golf boring" so I doubt he's in it at this point for anything else other than cash.

Technically, Mizuno designed the JPX 900 Tours for Brooks, in the hopes he signs an equipment deal:

Quote

According to Jeff Cook, Mizuno's PGA TOUR manager, the company created the JPX 900 Tour with Koepka in mind, in the hopes that the clubs could sway him to play their irons when his deal with Titleist came up.
"Those irons were designed for Brooks, from the shaping down to the colors we used," Cook said. "We wanted to give it our best shot and knew the best way to get his attention was to create a set for him."
