New Honma TR20 460 and TR20 440 drivers launch for 2020

Published

on

Honma has introduced its two new driver additions for 2020—the TR20 460 and TR20 440.

The TR20 460 (used by Honma ambassador Justin Rose) is a full profile driver deeper front to back with a swept crown designed for confidence and playability, while the TR20 440 is a compact profile that sits higher in the back for a traditional appearance.

Speaking on the new drivers, Honma President John Kawaja stated

“TR20 drivers are a feat of engineering craftsmanship from our incredibly talented teams in Sakata and Carlsbad. Combining innovative carbon construction with the legendary shaping of our takumis in Japan is something we’re very excited for golfers to experience.”

Both new additions from Honma feature a nearly total carbon body and a fast TiCarbon Fast Frame.

The TiCarbon Fast Frame combines an ultra-lightweight ET40 carbon crown from Toray Composites with a carbon sole on a highly optimized titanium frame designed to provide maximum speed and weight efficiency.

A unique vertical groove face works with the Ti frame and carbon body in a bid to deliver speed, and three strategically located and adjustable sole weights seek to provide flight and playability preference for increased MOI, reduced spin, or more draw bias.

The non-rotating hosel on the two new driver additions from Honma allows the clubhead to be adjusted +/- 1.5 degrees in face angle, +/- 1 degree in loft, and +/- 1 degree in lie angle without changing the orientation of the shaft in a design for more consistent performance and impact delivery.

Honma’s TR20 drivers are engineered with the brand’s VIZARD shafts, designed to provide a better whole club in 50, 60, and 70-gram options with different EI profiles to meet the distance needs of golfers with different swing speeds and shaft loading tendencies.

    Substantially over priced, but other than that it looks interesting.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Titleist Vokey WedgeWorks A+ grind

Published

on

The first wedge has made its way to the Three Swing Challenge! This week we have the WedgeWorks A+ grind that was recently released by Vokey. BK is looking for a new 60-degree wedge, and this could be a contender.

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2 and discounted No. 3 because the player was starting to adjust.”

Collin Morikawa’s pre-Open equipment adjustments

Published

on

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from a piece our Andrew Tursky originally wrote for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Head over there for the full article.

Three years later, Morikawa has once again changed his irons to deal with the unique Scottish turf.

Morikawa has been using TaylorMade P730 blade short irons (7-PW), P7MC mid irons (5-6) and a TaylorMade “Proto” 4-iron with a cavity-back construction this year.

However, he switched into a new set of TaylorMade P7CB irons (5-PW) before finishing T4 at last week’s Genesis Scottish Open, to go along with his familiar “Proto” 4-iron. TaylorMade’s P7CB irons are the finalized versions of the “Proto” 4-iron that Morikawa has been using, except they remain unreleased to retail.

According to TaylorMade, Morikawa switched into a full set of the new P7CB irons to aid with turf interaction, just like he did prior to his 2021 Open victory.

Morikawa is honing in on his winning formula overseas.

Morikawa also has switched from his usual TaylorMade Qi10 5-wood to a lower-launching TaylorMade P790 3-iron equipped with a Project X HZRDUS 105 Hybrid shaft. The loft of the club has been bent down to 19 degrees.

TaylorMade says that Morikawa switched into the new driving iron In order to “have an option to hit something lower that will roll out in the fairways.”
