Donald bags new Mizuno T7 wedges at Open Championship

Published

on

Sure, he finished T43, but there was still plenty of excitement around Luke Donald’s play at the 145th Open Championship. The former No. 1-ranked golfer in the world was using Mizuno’s new T7 wedges at Royal Troon.

Mizuno hasn’t released other details about the wedges, but it’s clear from the engraving on their hosels that they’re forged from the company’s 1025E Boron material, which Mizuno says is 30 percent stronger than the 1025E carbon steel used in its current S5 wedges.

In recent launches, Mizuno has been incorporating its boron material into its cavity-back iron designs, and boron-forged T7 wedges would mark the first time the company used boron in one of its wedge models.

In the past, Mizuno’s T-line of wedges such as the MP-T5 (released in 2014) have used the company’s “teardrop” head shape, whereas S models such as the S5 (released in 2015) have used the company’s “silhouette,” or rounded shape. Expect the tradition to continue with the T7.

In other Mizuno-related news, the company had its new JPX-900 driver added to the USGA Conforming Club List last week.

    “but there was still plenty of excitement around Luke Donald’s play at the 145th Open Championship.”

    No, there wasn’t. I didn’t hear about anybody getting excited about Donald using new wedges.

    Then where does one go for soft wedges that can be easily bent at home – I suspect these may be as hard as anyones else’s wedges. Great for the grooves though.

      Good point on the grooves. Hopefully it’s not just marketing speak. But then are the savings on wedges offset by balls that need replacing every hole?

      all mizuno clubs especially forged are crazy soft and easy to bend… why would this be different?

        Yeah. My JPX850 Forged irons didn’t seem to be any problem for my fitter to bend. Should be the same story here. And as someone with the blue ion S5…these are my upgrades when I wear mine out. Pretty clubs.

          Question about the 850’s . . . . “how easy”?

          Where I live, I get stuck with mats for practicing on too many occasions. Past history, mats knock forged irons out of whack in a hurry – – – do the 850’s bend as easy as regular forged or are they more likely to hold loft / lie?
