Jason Dufner wore a Biggie Smalls hat, and used Mizuno JPX-900 Tour irons in Hawaii

Published

on

Abiding by The 10 Hat Commandments, Jason Dufner wore a Notorious B.I.G. hat during the 2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions. Without his Titleist hat, since he no longer has a golf club or hat contract with the company, Dufner gave us a peak into his off-brand collection this week in Hawaii. And it didn’t disappoint. During the week, he wore a Bear’s Club hat, a camouflage Toronto Blue Jays hat, an American flag hat, and most importantly, a Biggie Smalls hat.

Also, as I predicted in our Two Guys Talkin’ Golf podcast, Dufner switched into Mizuno JPX-900 Tour irons for the week. It was an easy prediction for me, since the JPX-900 Tour irons are what many pros have switched into when they’re fresh out of club contracts. Just add Dufner to the list. And while Dufner was spotted testing a TaylorMade M4 driver early in the week, he played in the event itself with a Titleist 917D2 driver that he used throughout 2017.

Dufner, who earned a spot in the Sentry TOC with his win at The Memorial in 2017, finished at 10-under par and T11. Not a bad showing, although he did lose by 14 shots to the freakishly good performance of Dustin Johnson.

Until Dufner inevitably signs contracts, his hat and golf club choices will be a must follow in 2018. And we’ll be here to keep you up to date on anything noteworthy.

    Dufner did NOT play the M4 this week. He used his 917 driver. The fact that he would rather use what many describe as an inferior driver, rather than an M4, raises some questions

      Titleist doesn’t go as straight or far but sounds and feels fantastic, so whatever tickles your testes.

    More proof that TM are the best woods and Mizuno are the best irons out there at present. When money doesn’t corrupt the decision, the truth comes out. Got that, Sugar Daddy Rhino Bob?

      Pretty sure TMag still does a wood contract for every tourney used. Or least they used to.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods

Published

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods. WRXer ‘Kale_m’ is in the market for a fairway wood and reaches out to fellow members for feedback on the Mizuno ST-Z, and our members have been sharing their reviews of the club in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bryanwmilburn: “I have the 3 wood with Ventus Black 7X, and it’s the best fairway I’ve ever owned.”
  • JMB83: “I played the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 6s this past weekend, and it was a weapon off the tee. I really like the deep face for that purpose, and I appreciate the more neutral to open setup at 14*. The feel is unbelievable too.”
  • JDW3: “Got mine out on the course today. I hit it really well off the deck and off the tee. I really like that the lie angle is a little flatter. Looking forward to getting out this weekend to get in some more testing.”
  • Kale_m: “Ummmm, this thing is a cannon…Best looking 3w ever though. Turned it down a notch, and it sits perfect. A hook is my miss with the 3w. Not 1 with this in about 15 balls I hit.”

Srixon ZX7 vs Srixon 785 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been pitting Srixon’s ZX7 irons against the brand’s 785 irons. WRXer ‘AbSWFPGA’ is currently playing the company’s 745 irons and reaches out to members for feedback on the ZX7’s and 785’s, and WRXers have been sharing their experiences with both in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tssgj65: “I played the 785 last season. Went ahead and bought the ZX7 because of the hype. Same shaft in both, but for whatever reason, I am back with the 785. Probably no different than any other iron change, but as of now, I feel more confident with the 785’s.”
  • KPH808: “I’ve had both sets with the same shafts as well. I prefer the 785s, but the ZX7s look much better. I had the 785s in the bag for a while, but the ZX7s lasted only a few rounds.”
  • ace036: “I had the ZX7’s and also ended up going back to my Z785’s. I prefer the shape and longer blade length appearance of the Z785’s. The slightly wider sole works better for me as well.”
  • Haber: “I’ve had my Z785’s for almost 2 years now. Hoping I can go a couple more without switching. I recently demoed the zx7 and the apex pro for fun. Zx7 felt very similar and looked fantastic. Apex pro launched higher and carried a little further, but the sound and feel of the cup face made them an instant turn off. Couldn’t discern too much between the 2 Srixon offerings, so I will be sticking with my z785’s until the next round of temptation hits. I will say dollar for dollar Srixon irons are the best value in the golf market. Hundreds cheaper than the other guys and amazing quality.”
