Long-renowned for its legendary array of irons, Mizuno has been one of the talking points of 2019 in the golf world for its surge in development of a range of tour-tested drivers.
Boasting former world no. 1 Luke Donald, 2015 Order of Merit champion, Olivia Cowan and rising star Eddie Pepperell among the golfers who trust in the brand, Mizuno’s drivers are tested by staffer Keith Mitchell who won his first-ever PGA Tour title at the 2019 Honda Classic powered by a Mizuno wood.
The club in question was the Mizuno ST190. Unveiled at the 2018 British Masters, the ST190 is marketed under the tagline ‘the dark art of distance’. Mizuno boasts that their 'speed engineered’ club has the lowest spin rate of their drivers to date. The ST190 features a carbon composite crown and amplified Wave soleplate, designed to convert speed into yardage.
The Mizuno ST180 is available in the Japanese company’s trademark blue for those who prefer something a little more striking than the black ST180. With the same Wave technology as its darker cousin, the ST180 strikes fast and produces little spin and you’ll find a fantastic discount on it right now as Mizuno’s latest clubs have edged ahead of it in the newness stakes.
The JPX900 is Mizuno’s most adjustable driver to date, allowing golfers to fine-tune the spin rate and launch angles to a degree best suited to their game. Taking the time to get to know this cool looking piece of golfing tech, and how to set it up to correct for any draw or fade bias in your game, can potentially add 20 to 30 yards to your tee shot. The JPX900 is a fine driver, straight from the fairways of the tour.
Club heads don’t come any more adjustable than the Mizuno GT180. A blue titanium head allows you to dial in the perfect spin speed, loft and hosel to add extra yards from any style of play. Best suited to above-average golfers with high swing speeds, the GT180 is a seriously top-of-the-range club for anyone looking to perfect their game. Oh, and check out how it sounds when you find the sweetest spot for your swing.
