Mizuno JPX-850 Forged Irons

After 6 years of development – the introduction of BORON to Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forging process allows the JPX-850 Forged to overcome the distance limitations of traditional forged irons.

Mizuno’s new material is 30% stronger than traditional 1025E steel billets – allowing for a thinner face and extreme ball speeds. The result is an incredible iron that combines Grain Flow Forged precision and feel with shocking distance. A combination that was unachievable before BORON.

This new, thinner face is strategically reinforced by a Power Frame cavity which places weight to the extreme corners of the club head for maximum forgiveness along with increased distance. A clean, sleek design combined with these breakthrough technologies delivers an iron that looks and plays like nothing before.
Tech Spec

  • Grain Flow Forged 1025 BORON: 30% stronger material for thinner face and longer distance while delivering soft, solid, consistent feel.

Cobra King LTD Driver

Cobra King LTD Driver

Cobra King LTD Driver

The King LTD Driver represents COBRA’s finest technology without compromise. Created with premium materials and state-of-the-art technology, the KING LTD driver is the longest &straightest driver Cobra has ever created. KING LTD truly is The Ultimate Distance Machine.

SPACEPORT A multi-purpose, 16g weight that strategically positions weight to create extremely low CG with high MOI – the perfect combination of distance and forgiveness. The SpacePort also works as a window to view the sophisticated internal COBRA technology.

Most Drivers in the marketplace today have a Center of Gravity that is positioned above the neutral axis line. KING LTD is Cobra’s first driver to ever get it to the neutral line (Zero CG), and deliver a more efficient transfer of energy at impact without sacrificing forgiveness. What does this mean to golfers? More distance through higher Launch, less spin and more Ball Speed.

SPACE IS IN IT Through Cobra’s partnership with the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), they are able to conduct research on the International Space Station,allowing them to create the most technologically advanced golf products in the world. From this research, COBRA’s R&D team can tailor new material properties. Simply put… Cobra makes game changing technologies that will enhance the performance of all golfers.

CROWN FIT FOR A KING Cobra made a lighter, stronger crown that reduces the weight so it can be redistributed to the correct areas of the clubhead. This delivers better mass properties, thus longer, straighter shots every time.
Faster – Lighter

TeXtreme® Carbon Fiber yields a lighter crown (20% lighter than regular Carbon Fiber) allowing for more weight to be repositioned. By lowering additional weight deeper in the club head, this design helps to deliver extreme distance and greater forgiveness.

FACE TECHNOLOGY Cobra pushed the boundaries of technological advancement to create a larger ‘sweetzone’ that spans across the entire face.

Speed Channel: Speed Channel is an exclusive COBRA innovation. An engineered trench around the perimeter of the face. This design minimizes thickness and increases ball speed across the face, resulting in incredible distance.

E9 Face Zoning: Cobra R&D technology removes weight from the face to deliver a larger, more effective Sweet Zone®. This increases ball speeds for longer and straighter drives – especially on off-center hits.

Forged 811 Titanium: The re-engineered Forged 8-1-1 Titanium E9 Face is a variable thickness structure that is lighter, thinner and hotter creating more deflection for faster ball speeds and a larger Sweet Zone® across the face.

MYFLY WITH SMARTPAD Eight easily adjustable loft settings that help manage trajectory and fine tune launch conditions to maximize distance on any course, and any swing.

See What’s New From Callaway at Budget Golf

Friday, December 11th, 2015

Callaway Golf was founded in 1982 by the late Ely Callaway, a visionary entrepreneur who operated under a simple but profound business promise: deliver superior, pleasingly different products and services. That philosophy turned what was originally a boutique manufacturer of high-quality wedges and putters into the world’s largest maker of premium, performance golf products. The Callaway mission and vision has remained the same; they passionately pursue advanced, innovative technologies that help golfers of all abilities find more enjoyment from the game.

Their 2015 releases are no exception to that philosophy, combining time-tested technology with 33 years worth of innovation.

Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver

callaway great big bertha driver

Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver

This is Callaway’s greatest combination of speed, forgiveness and distance.

The Great Big Bertha Driver is back, and it represents the next frontier in driver design. This advanced adjustable driver has a light, fast, stable chassis unlike any other driver they’ve had before. It’s a technological breakthrough, and it’s built to get the most distance for ALL golfers.

So how did Callaway make this breakthrough? They optimized the multi-material chassis to generate more clubhead speed through aerodynamics and a wide range of weight classes to suit every swing type. Callaway also developed next gen R•MOTO technology that provides the structure for a thinner face which leads to high ball speeds on center and off-center hits. And they added Adjustable Perimeter Weighting on the perimeter of the head for ball flight and dispersion control with exceptional forgiveness.

Simple Adjustability

You can quickly slide the weight to any position you want on the track. And theOptifit hosel lets you choose from 8 different configurations to tune loft, lie, and face angle.

Forgiveness and Control From Adjustable Perimeter Weighting

There’s a 10g sliding weight on the perimeter of the clubhead. We put it there to add stability, and you can slide the weight for more dispersion control to hit your drives on line. You have virtually unlimited draw and fade bias options, more additional draw bias than ever before, and you get all of this without sacrificing forgiveness.

Optifit hosel

The Optifit hosel lets you choose from 8 different configurations to tune loft, lie, and face angle.

High Ball Speed from Next Gen R•MOTO Technology

To get every last yard out of your driver, you need more speed. That’s why we put in our Next Gen R•MOTO Technology. It provides the structure for a thinner face, leading to high ball speeds on center hits and off-center hits too.

Head Speed From Our Light, Stable, Multi-Material Chassis

This is the best combination Callaway has ever had of an aerodynamic head shape and multi-material lightweight club design. It’s the key to generating higher clubhead speed through aerodynamics and a wide range of weight classes available to suit every swing type, from 295 to 325g.

Stock Standard Shafts:

  • MRC Bassara 43g (Women’s, Light, Regular)
  • Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Black 50 (Light, Regular, Stiff, X-Stiff)
  • Fujikura Evolution 665 Tour Spec (Regular, Stiff, X-Stiff)
  • Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 70 (Stiff, X-Stiff)

The Callaway Great Big Bertha Fairway Wood is a breakthrough in technology for more distance and playability, with a Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup for ball speed and a Modern Warbird Sole that makes it easy to hit.This is Callaway’s fastest fairway wood technology with the Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup, and it’s built for the ultimate in forgiveness and control.

Features & Details

High Ball Speeds From Cup Face Technology

They’re serious about giving you the most distance in a fairway wood, and we put in our Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup to show that we mean business. It’s designed for high speeds that make the ball go a long way on center hits and off-center hits.

Ultimate Playability and Control

The head is larger than our typical fairway wood, and that extra surface area leads to a higher MOI for more forgiveness. We also added our legendary WarbirdSoleplate which makes the club easy to hit from a variety of lies with a mid-launching trajectory.

Special Heavenwood and Divine Nine Options

These two clubs have a unique combination and tighter dispersion than you might get from your regular club configuration. The Heavenwood (20.5* loft, 43” shaft) and Divine Nine (24*, 42” shaft) could give you the perfect gapping for your bag.

OptiFit Adjustability

Tune the fairway wood to the settings you want to play with our 8-way adjustability. You can add loft, take loft off or adjust the lie angle to fit your swing.*

*OptiFit Adjustability not available in 7W and Divine 9.

The Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816 Double Black Diamond Driver delivers extreme distance for better players, featuring a deeper face, next gen R•MOTO Face, and Dual Distance Chambers with the Gravity Core for optimized ball speed and shot-shaping.

 

Features & Details

Extreme Distance From Dual Distance Chambers

If you’re looking for a neutral or draw ball flight to work the ball with more control, pick the left or right chamber. Then set the Gravity Core up or down depending on where you hit the ball for maximum ball speed. It’s a distance turbo charger to increase your ball speed and the ultimate combination of extreme distance and shot-shaping control for the best players.

Ball Speed From Next Gen R•MOTO Technology

To get every last yard out of your driver, you need more speed. That’s why we put in our next generation R•MOTO Technology. It provides the structure for a thinner face, leading to high ball speeds on center hits and off-center hits too.

A Deeper Face, Traditional Shape and a Low Center of Gravity

The best players want a deeper face, a traditional shape and a low center of gravity to reduce spin with just the right amount of forgiveness and workability. And that’s exactly what we’re giving them with this driver. The shape of the crown, the open face angle, and the matte black finish with no distractions all suit better players’ eyes when they’re standing over the ball.

Tour Preferred CG Positions

Move the adjustable weights (3g and 16g) for the ball flight you want to play. When you want to lower spin put the weight forward, and when the weight is back you’ll have more forgiveness with higher launch. It can be a long option off the tee or a more playable club on approach shots – it all depends on how you want to use it.

Modern Shaping and Sole Design

A slightly larger head provides more MOI than you would expect out of an elite player’s fairway wood. The sole design provides control from a variety of lies. The matte black finish provides an uncluttered look at address.

OptiFit Adjustability

Tune the fairway wood to the settings you want to play with our 8-way adjustability. You can add loft, take loft off or adjust the lie angle to fit your swing.

Callaway MD3 Milled Matte Black Wedge

Callaway MD3 Milled Matte Black Wedge

Callaway MD3 Milled Matte Black Wedge

The MD3 Milled Wedges have the versatility and selection for every shot, every course condition, and every swing. It’s the most complete wedge line that Callaway has ever created. By leveraging 3 unique grinds (S-Grind, C-Grind, and the new W-Grind), our new milled Progressive Groove Optimization system that optimizes spin for each loft, and advanced shaping and design, you can specialize your wedges to your game and all the shots that you want to hit.

Legendary wedge designer Roger Cleveland received extensive input from Tour players, and he used their feedback to craft the toe profile, sole and grinds of MD3Milled. And now there are even more custom options for shafts, grips, and finishes. These wedges give you everything you need to get up and down from anywhere.

3 Grinds For Every Shot, Every Condition, and Every Swing

W-Grind

A slightly wider sole. It’s perfect if you play in softer conditions or you come in with a steep angle to the ball. And it’s extremely playable out of all types of bunkers.

S-Grind

Our most versatile option. It’s great for a wide range of conditions (normal, soft, or firm). shot types and swings (moderate to sweeping angles)

C-Grind

Designed for firmer conditions and versatility around the green. The heel and toe relief allow for a number of shots, especially opening up the face and keeping the lead edge low.

 

Progressive Groove Optimization

The MD3 Milled line has Progressive Groove Optimization. A 3 groove package precision milled into the face of these wedges that optimizes spin as you up in loft. It creates a smoother spin transition from your irons to wedges. The 30V grooves in the Pitching and Gap Wedges are built for shots that require a steep angle into the ball. The 20V grooves in the sand wedges are designed for full shots and bunker shots, and we put in wider 5V grooves in the lob wedges for better control for shots out of the rough and around the green.

Advanced Shaping and Design

Legendary Callaway wedge designer Roger Cleveland took Tour input and blended that with advanced CAD design. The result is a balanced wedge with a high toe profile and a semi-straight leading edge. The weight ports in the back of the wedge gave Callaway the freedom to reposition the weight for better shot-making, especially out of deep rough.

A Wide Array of Custom Options

Choose from a wide selection of shafts, grips, and finishes to make the MD3 Milled your own.

Shoot Like a Pro! The Clubs the PGA’s Best Drivers and Putters Use

Monday, August 31st, 2015

When we choose our club and step up to that tee, we all want to believe that we play like a pro. When the driver connects with the ball and sends it flying toward the pin… our hopes go with it. Hole in one? Will we land in the rough? Have to chip out of the sand? Land on the green but 20 feet away from the hole with an impossible slope? These pros face these same challenges… and with16 hours a day of practice… you can, indeed, play just like them. Otherwise, check out the clubs they use to get the job done, and watch a few videos while you’re here.

How to putt like Jason Day:
Walk the line and get a feel for the pitch of the green.

“You’re not walking around the putt,” Day said recently at a media outing presented by Adidas at Reynolds Plantation. “In this case, you’re walking the line so you may be feeling something with your feet that you can’t see, even if you’re staring down from the hole to the ball. You’re able to feel the actual putting line.”

Why? Your eyes can sometimes deceive you. Course designers are notorious for optical illusions, using the lay of the land to trick your eyes into either seeing breaks that aren’t there, or hiding subtle breaks that are.

The only way to tell for sure is to use your sense of touch, through your feet.

New from PING! Introducing the GMax and the I E1 6-Piece Iron Sets

Monday, July 27th, 2015

From the company known for quality and innovation: PING introduces 2 new 6-piece iron sets!

PING GMax 6-Piece Iron Set Steel

PING GMax 6-Piece Iron Set Steel

PING GMax 6-Piece Iron Set Steel

In the GMax iron, PING engineers have created our longest, straightest model ever utilizing COR-Eye Technology, a revolutionary design that increases face flexing for faster ball speeds across the face to generate incredible distance. The wide sole design positions the CG low/back to maximize forgiveness. Progressive lengths and lofts are optimized for efficient gapping with the distance control and high trajectory you need to hit and hold more greens.
COR-Eye Technology

Distance is generated from greater ball speeds created by the simultaneous activation of the sole, face and top rail. This produces more face flexing to spring the ball off the face up to 3 mph faster than previous PING models. The 4 thru 8 iron faces are heat treated using a specialized process that strengthens the material by approximately 40%, creating a Hyper-17-4 alloy and allowing the face to be thinner for greater flexing and faster ball speeds.
High-MOI Design

A new cavity structure houses a concealed Custom Tuning Port that connects to the sole. With this deeper position, each iron’s center of gravity is moved lower and farther back to increase the moment of inertia for extreme forgiveness and higher-launching results.
Sole Geometry

The wide sole design locates the center of gravity to maximize forgiveness, leading to more-accurate iron shots that launch higher and land softly to hold greens. The sole geometry reveals an enhanced leading edge, more trailing edge relief and refined bounce to optimize turf interaction.
Shaft-Fitting Options

With two PING shaft choices (CFS Distance and CFS Graphite) and four popular after-market stock options, matching a shaft to fit your ball flight and feel preferences is easy.
Lighter Swingweights 4-Iron (C6), 5-Iron (C7), & 6-Iron (C8)

In the 4 thru 6 irons, lighter swingweights help square the face at impact, creating faster ball speeds for longer, straighter shots.
Specifications
Materials: Stainless steel head heat-treated for approximately 40% stronger faces (4-8 irons), elastomer CTP weight, aluminum cavity badge w/damping tape.
Finish: Dark satin
Shaft: CFS Distance (steel), XP 95 (Regular, Stiff)
“PING strongly believes that customers should be custom fit before purchasing PING Golf Clubs”

PING i E1 6-Piece Iron Set Steel

PING i E1 6-Piece Iron Set Steel

PING I E1 6-Piece Iron Set Steel

Using 431 stainless steel for the first time in a PING iron, engineers relied on the material’s high strength-to-weight ratio and softer feel to create a head design that delivers workability and trajectory control with the right amount of forgiveness. Lengths and lofts are optimized to increase distance with proper gapping, resulting in a clean, players-style iron with a high MOI that offers wide appeal.
The i is custom-engineered with 431 stainless steel for its high strength-to-weight ratio and softer feel. Weight savings from the 431 steel and the deeper CTP position allow for expanded perimeter weighting in a head design that delivers workability and trajectory control with forgiveness.
Perimeter Weighting

Weight savings (3-4 grams) from the 431 stainless steel and the deeper CTP (Custom Tuning Port) position allow for expanded perimeter weighting. A tungsten toe weight in the 3 thru 7 irons increases forgiveness.
Concealed CTP

An elastomer CTP weight tucks into the tuning port to create a clean cavity design. The port is positioned lower on the face to align with the impact area for a more solid sound and feel.
Progressive Set Design

Larger head sizes and low/back CG positions in the long irons offer forgiveness for attacking greens from any distance. The smaller short irons and wedges provide precision and control. Workability comes from a head and hosel geometry that ensures trajectory control for precise shot-making.
Shaft-Fitting Options

With two PING shaft choices (CFS Distance and CFS Graphite) and four popular after-market stock options, matching a shaft to fit your ball flight and feel preferences is easy.
Specifications
Materials: 431 stainless steel head, elastomer CTP weight, aluminum cavity badge w/ damping tape
Finish: Satin brushed
Shafts Options: CFS Distance (steel), Dynamic Gold (S300, X100), Project X (5.0, 6.0)

Introducing the PING G30 Golf Clubs

Monday, June 29th, 2015

PING is a family-owned company founded in 1959 in the garage of Karsten Solheim. Karsten’s frustration with his putting inspired him to design a putter, which made a “pinging” sound when striking a golf ball. Today, PING is synonymous with innovation, quality and service in the world of golf.

PING G30 Driver

PING G30 Driver

PING G30 Driver

An emphasis on speed with no sacrifice in performance sets the new G30 drivers apart. To generate faster clubhead speed and ball velocity for longer drives, turbulators were engineered onto the crown of the 460cc head. Proven in wind-tunnel testing to reduce aerodynamic drag and create efficient airflow, the added speed from the turbulators provides measurable distance gains for all skill levels. At address, they create a captured appearance with the ball and assist with alignment and inspiration.

The G30 driver’s CG position is the lowest and farthest back of any PING model, ensuring optimal launch conditions and an even higher MOI in both axes for extreme forgiveness and maximum energy transfer. A new high-strength, lightweight T9S titanium face is thinner and hotter to optimize face deflection for faster ball speeds and longer drives.
Another source of power is the TFC 419D high-balance-point shaft. The CG is closer to the grip end, allowing for a heavier head, which increases the MOI and contributes to the extremely low CG. The result is more energy, momentum and inertia for greater distance with accuracy.

The adjustable hosel has the same mass and outer diameter as our fixed hosels, providing the benefits of adjustability with no sacrifice in performance. Our Trajectory Tuning+ Technology allows you to optimize your ball flight by increasing or reducing loft in intervals of 6/10ths of a degree and one full degree, to maximize distance and control.

Adjustment Wrench Included

Crown turbulators in the 460cc head help generate greater clubhead speed and ball velocity for consistently longer drives that find the fairway. The new T9S face material is strong, lightweight and thin, optimizing face deflection for even higher ball speeds and longer drives. With Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, you can fine-tune launch conditions using five settings and 2 full degrees of loft adjustability.

Hotter Face Material
A new high-strength, lightweight T9S titanium face is thinner and hotter to optimize face deflection for faster ball speeds and longer drives.

Crown Turbulators
Turbulators in the crown of the 460cc head improve aerodynamics by reducing drag forces through the impact zone, leading to faster clubhead speed and ball velocity for long drives that hit the fairway. Turbulators can also assist with aim and alignment.

Low-Back CG
Weight savings from thinning the face are allocated to help position the CG lower and farther back than any PING driver to date, ensuring high launch and optimized spin with a high MOI for extreme forgiveness.

5-Setting Adjustability
To optimize the performance of your driver and maximize carry distance and roll out, you can fine-tune launch angle and spin by adding or subtracting up to 1 degree of loft prior to your round. Settings are standard, +0.6°, +1°, -0.6°, or -1°.

PING G30 Fairway Wood

PING G30 Fairway Wood

PING G30 Fairway Wood

Increased ball speed is achieved through a hotter face without sacrificing high launch or consistency. The face is engineered using Carpenter 475 steel, a material 44 percent stronger than 17-4 stainless steel. The added strength allowed us to create a thin, uniform-thickness face for maximizing deflection to increase ball speed and distance.
Turbulators crafted onto the crown create a captured appearance that assists with aim and provides confidence. The face profile provides an inspirational appearance while increasing its height for additional face bending and forgiveness. A low and deep CG in the 3-wood promotes high launch with optimal spin. The CG progresses more forward and lower in the 5- and 7-woods to keep launch angle and spin uniquely optimized for distance and control in each clubhead.
A new addition to the G family of fairway woods, the lightweight hosel design is engineered with the same mass and outer diameter as our fixed hosels to unlock the benefits of adjustability without sacrificing performance. It offers the ability to add or subtract up to 1 degree of loft to optimize launch angle and spin rate. Settings are standard, +0.6°, +1°, -0.6°, and -1°. A high-balance-point TFC 419F shaft has a CG that’s closer to the grip end, creating a simultaneous increase in energy, momentum and inertia for faster ball speeds and greater distance. The charcoal, non-glare matte finish eliminates reflections to improve focus.

Adjustment Wrench Included
Designing a hotter, more forgiving face for generating distance with control was the inspiration behind the G30 fairway woods. A strong, uniform-thickness Carpenter 475 face maximizes deflection to increase ball speed and generate distance. The face is also taller for additional face bending and forgiveness. Crown turbulators help with aim and confidence. And with five settings, you can add or subtract up to 1 degree of loft to optimize trajectories.
Hot Face
Faster ball speeds and greater distance come from a larger face made of a uniform-thickness Carpenter 475 steel, creating a thin but strong hitting surface that maximizes face deflection. (Carpenter 475 steel is 44% stronger than 17-4 stainless steel.) Weight saved by thinning the face was redistributed to optimize the CG and elevate MOI for added forgiveness.
Larger Face
The face is taller to allow for additional face bending that generates ball speed and distance while also increasing the MOI for improved forgiveness and accuracy. The flatter top rail provides a square, more inspirational appearance at address for greater confidence.
5-Setting Adjustability
Fine-tune your launch angle and spin rate by adding or subtracting up to 1 degree of loft with PING’s five-setting Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, utilizing a lightweight, adjustable hosel. Settings are standard, +0.6°, +1°, -0.6°, and -1°. The adjustable hosel has the same mass and outer diameter as our fixed hosels, providing the benefits of adjustability with no sacrifice in performance.
Crown Turbulators
Turbulators in the fairway woods create a captured appearance with the ball, and help with aim and alignment to inspire confidence.
Progressive CGs
A low and deep CG in the 3-wood promotes high launch with optimal spin. The CG progresses more forward and lower in the 5- and 7-woods to keep launch angle and spin uniquely optimized for distance and control in each clubhead.

PING G30 Hybrid

PING G30 Hybrid

PING G30 Hybrid

Custom engineering produces faster ball speeds and longer distance with a higher maximum shot height so you have the stopping power to hold greens, giving you the confidence to attack pins. To increase face deflection and ball speed for adding distance with a higher peak trajectory, the 17-4 stainless steel face was optimized with a special heat-treatment process, making it thin but strong. The result is more distance with the steeper landing angle you need to hold shots on the green.
The G30 hybrids benefit from performance-engineered internal weight pads. Heel-toe weighting elevates MOI and forgiveness. Weight in the low sole creates a low-back CG for consistent impact and helps you launch the ball high and on target. In the lower-lofted hybrids, the CG is farther back to promote high launch. A lower, more forward CG through the mid- and higher-lofted models reduces spin. Progressive CG locations and offsets ensure efficient gapping and trajectories that maximize distance.
To inspire confidence, the hybrids’ top rail is flatter and the heel section is higher, providing a very square face at address that helps with aim and alignment consistency. The high-balance-point TFC 419H shaft allows for a slightly heavier head weight, which increases MOI for greater forgiveness and improved accuracy. A matte charcoal finish reduces glare to help you focus.

Faster ball speeds and longer distance with a higher max shot height will give you the stopping power to hold shots on the greens and attack pins. The 17-4 stainless steel face is H900 heat-treated so it’s thin but strong to increase ball velocity. Internal weighting creates a high MOI. Progressive CG locations and offsets ensure efficient gapping and trajectories that maximize distance.
Speed-Generating Face
The uniform 17-4 stainless steel face is processed with a H900 heat treatment, making it 68% stronger. This allows for a thinner hitting surface that maximizes deflection and distance, which helps create a steeper landing angle to hold shots on the green.
Weighted for MOI
The G30 hybrids benefit from performance-engineered internal weight pads. Heel-toe weighting elevates MOI for extreme forgiveness. Weight in the low sole creates a low-back CG for consistent impact and helps you launch the ball high and on target.
Progressive CG Locations
In the lower-lofted hybrids, the CG is farther back to promote high launch. A lower, more forward CG through the mid- and higher-lofted models reduces spin. Progressive CG locations and offsets ensure efficient gapping and trajectories that maximize distance.

PING G30 LS TEC Driver

PING G30 LS TEC Driver

PING G30 LS TEC Driver

The 460cc G30 LS Tec driver is a good fit for anyone seeking low, stable spin with an industry-leading MOI for long, accurate drives. The CG is back and extremely low (slightly forward of the standard G30 driver) to generate approximately 400 rpm less spin while maintaining a high MOI for exceptional flight control and distance on off-center performance.
Turbulators on the crown of the Ti 8-1-1 head reduce aerodynamic drag on the downswing, helping to increase clubhead speed and ball velocity for gaining distance. A thin face made of a cutting-edge T9S titanium alloy maximizes deflection to increase ball velocity and distance with a high MOI while providing a deep, powerful sound. T9S offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio, allowing weight savings to be re-allocated to optimize the CG and increase forgiveness for improved accuracy.

Using Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, the 9° and 10.5° loft can be added or subtracted 1° for fine-tuning trajectory. Settings are Standard, +0.6°, +1°, -0.6°, and -1°. The TFC 419D high-balance-point shaft has a CG closer to the grip end, promoting a simultaneous increase in the clubhead’s energy, momentum and inertia.

The G30 LS Tec (Low-Spin Technology) driver offers a unique combination of low, stable spin with a high MOI for added distance with accuracy and control. Crown turbulators reduce aerodynamic drag to help increase clubhead speed and ball velocity for gaining distance, and lofts are adjustable plus or minus 1 degree. The T9S titanium alloy face is thin to maximize deflection for increasing ball speeds and distance.
Turbulator Technology:

Crown turbulators reduce aerodynamic drag on the downswing, leading to increased clubhead speed and ball velocity for greater distance.
Low, Stable Spin:

A CG that is back and extremely low (slightly forward of the standard G30 driver) delivers approximately 400 rpm less spin than the standard G30 driver with industry-leading MOI for maximizing distance, accuracy and control.

PING G30 Individual Wedges Steel

Progressive lengths and lofts and a thin face optimize launch conditions and generate faster ball speeds, ensuring maximum distance and control to consistently knock the ball close. The Custom Tuning Port (CTP) contributes to a solid feel and a low-back CG for launching the ball high and straight. Slightly longer heads also boost MOI for improved off-center performance, and a new sole design promotes solid contact.
Distance, forgiveness and high launch enable you to launch the ball farther and higher so you can attack the pin. Progressive lengths and lofts and a thin face are key to achieving a higher max ball flight to give you the stopping power needed for scoring. Distance control and consistent, predictable results are provided by a custom tuning port that sits very low and supports a thin face to generate faster ball speeds. The CTP and an undercut cavity help position the CG low-back to optimize launch and forgiveness while ensuring a solid feel to inspire confidence.

With distance also come forgiveness and accuracy. Slightly longer blade lengths help to increase MOI, most noticeably in the 4 through 7 iron. Progressive offset generates higher ball flights in the longer irons and penetrating, controlled trajectories with the scoring clubs.

Another advantage is a sole design optimized to promote solid contact with consistent trajectories. To improve turf interaction, relief was added to the lead and trailing edges, and bounce was refined to perform with any angle of attack. A soft elastomer badge further contributes to improved feel and sound in the perimeter-weighted design.

From Hazel to Hybrids: The Illustrious History of Modern Golf Clubs

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews

The stately Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews clubhouse overlooks the grounds where the sport of golf was conceived and born, reportedly by shepherds filling time by knocking stones into rabbit holes. Soon players began hand carving their “clubs” out of wood and creating leather balls from old satchels.

As time went on, and the sport began to gain popularity, players became particular about the materials used for their clubs, choosing ash or hazel for the shaft, and harder woods like holly, apple, pear, or beech for the head. The cleek, also known today as the putter, was designed in the late 18th century by a well-known club maker named Simon Cossar, and consisted of an iron head and a wooden shaft.

Even before the days of modern golf club design and mass-produced equipment, golfers carried a variety of clubs when they played.

The “Longnose” was comparable to today’s driver and was fashioned much the same way. “Bulgers” were similar to today’s woods. “Fairway clubs”, which are still used today for long range shooting. “Spoons” were used in short range shots. “Niblicks” were similar to the modern wedges, and “cleeks” are now putters.

Hickory golf clubs from the 1800's

In the mid-1800’s, Scottish golf designer, Robert Forgran, began importing American hickory which he used to fashion the shaft of the club, which set the stage for rapid advancements in club construction. In the late 1800’s drop-forging enabled the mass production of iron club heads, replacing the long-utilized persimmon. The first groove-faced irons were developed and gained popularity quickly as they increased the ball’s speed and backspin over the traditional persimmon head. In the early 1900’s, aluminum heads made an appearance as well.

Wooden club and "feathery" of the late 1800's.

In 1929, the Prince of Wales commissioned a set of steel-shafted clubs. When he was seen playing with them at St. Andrews, the steel-shafted clubs’ popularity skyrocketed, with players at every level of ability and class ordering their own set. When the Haskell ball became available in the US, iron shafts replaced hickory altogether, and began an eternal objective to find materials and designs to lighten the shaft.

Improvements to the clubs brought with it the method in which they were marketed and sold. Rather than named clubs, they became numbered based on their specifications. Rather than going through dozens of clubs attempting to put together a set with the right feel, golfers were able to choose clubs within a specific numbered “matched set”, which created all kinds of havoc on the golf course. As a result, in 1938 the USGA set the limit on the number of clubs that could be carried per round at 14.

As we all know, putts win games, and finally the putter saw its day in the 1960’s when Karsten Solheim, frustrated with his own putters, designed the 1A in his own garage. It had a thinner and lighter sweet spot, and when it tapped the ball, it made a distinctive “PING” sound. The club gained popularity, and Solheim soon abandoned his career and began the company know to this day as “PING”. They continue to produce the world’s most innovative and successful club and putter designs.

The original Big Bertha, released by Callaway in 1991

In the 1970’s the lightweight graphite-shaft clubs widely used today gained popularity with women and senior golfers, but weren’t adopted by typical golfers until the mid-1990’s. Around the same time, Callaway introduced “Big Bertha” a stainless steel-headed driver, which revolutionized the golf club industry and turned the persimmon headed drivers into museum pieces. The Big Bertha is still around today, and Callaway has continued to develop innovative and cutting-edge clubs, along with the dozens of their competitors such as Adams, TaylorMade, and Nike.

The Cobra Fly-Z Hybrid

Hybrids, a recent innovation in the golf club industry, combine the swing mechanics of an iron with the larger sweet spot and longer distance of a wood. Many golfers embraced the versatility of the hybrids – thus encouraging an entirely new breed of club to take hold. Even though they’ve only been around for just over a decade, they’ve quickly gained in popularity. In 2004, only 7% of golfers reported using a hybrid, while most golfers today have at least one in their bag.

The golf club has come a long way since its origins as a wooden club on the hills of Scotland centuries ago, and is still being revolutionized to this day. Each year brings with it lighter shafts, drivers producing greater backspin, speed and distance, and putters that would make even Karsten Solheim’s jaw drop. We can’t wait to see what these innovators come up with next!

New for 2015! Mizuno Driver, Wedge, and Irons

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

Since 1906, the Mizuno company has been building their company on the principles of true sportsmanship and harmonizing sports equipment with each athlete’s body. These principles are paramount to Mizuno’s operations to this day and evident in this year’s releases.

Mizuno MP-T5 White Satin Custom Wedge

Total Package of Feel, Spin, and Control
The MP-T5 wedges deliver the feel and precision of Mizuno’s renowned Grain Flow Forging process where it benefits the player the most – around the greens. A refined teardrop profile – based on the tour grind of short game magician Luke Donald, allows mastery of the ball from a variety of set ups and positions. In addition, there are now unbelievable 25 combinations of loft and bounce, with 5 sole grinds, to suit the needs of even the most discerning wedge player.
Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forged heads combine the softest feel with spin control only possible through the use of loft specific Quad Cut Grooves. Mizuno’s Quad Cut Groove concept utilizes a wider, shallower groove from 54-62 lofts (to grab softer, partial strikes) and a narrower, deeper configuration from 49-53 degrees (for fuller shots). When it comes to wedge performance, the new MP-T5 is the total package.
Mizuno MP-T5 Tech Specs
Grain Flow Forged: From a single 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel billet for soft, solid, consistent feel.
QUAD CUT Grooves and Milled Face: CNC milled grooves and increased surface roughness for ball stopping spin.
25 Loft/Bounce Options: All with Tour Inspired sole grinds.
White Sating and Black Ion Finishes.
Stock Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold (Wedge Flex)

Mizuno JPX-850 Driver Design Details:

In 2007 Mizuno introduced a sliding weight system called Fast Track – to alter a driver’s draw/fade tendency. Mizuno has now evolved this breakthrough technology to also be able to customize spin rate and launch angle in the JPX-850 – helping all swing speeds achieve maximum possible total yardage. A massive playing profile with a low and deep extended weighting system launches the ball into an optimized, low spinning orbit – from whichever QuickSwitch setting you choose.

The piercing blue JPX-850 uses twin 8-gram weights which can be located on either the central sliding rail, or two lateral slots. With 10 unique settings, players of all head speeds can dial in their perfect launch and spin.

In combination with Mizuno’s Quick Switch shaft release system, the JPX-850 also offers lofts from 7.5 to 11.5 within one head for the ultimate in adjustability.

The JPX-850 head is a compact, powerful 440cc Titanium driver that utilizes a Rebound Crown to maximize ball speeds for unmatched distance.
Fast Track: 10 unique flight settings (4 neutral, 3 draw, 3 fade) to dial in launch and spin for increased distance.
Quick Switch: 8 loft settings from 7.5 to 11.5 degrees.
Rebound Crown: Rounded crown flexes at impact for explosive distance.

“The genius of the new Fast Track is that it adds the dimension of launch angle and spin rate. Now the player is truly in control of maximizing all aspects of their ball flight off the tee.”
Chuck Couch – Mizuno VP of Product Management

Mizuno JPX-850 Irons

Mizuno JPX-850 Irons

Mizuno JPX-850 Irons

POWER UP WITH THE LONGEST IRON IN GOLF
The breakthroughs in distance and ball speed of the JPX-850 are achieved through Mizuno’s Power Frame design, which greatly increases the rebound area of the clubface. In addition, the Power Frame positions weight in the extreme corners of the club head to increase stability on off-center shots, maximizing forgiveness and consistent distance.

Equally as important, the innovative Power Frame design ensures ball speeds are consistently high across the entire clubface and that the high COR is not created at the expense of feel or control. The JPX-850 delivers more distance, with more solid feel than any other iron in the game.

Mizuno JPX-850 Irons Tech Spec
Power Frame Distance: Increases rebound area for maximum distance.
Power Frame Foregiveness: Weight is strategically placed in the four corner of the cavity to maximize foregiveness.
Dual Relief Zone Sole: Ideal turf interaction for solid ball striking in all course conditions.
Shaft: TRUE TEMPER XP 105

Callaway Big Bertha Drivers, Fairway Woods, Hybrids, and Irons – New for 2015

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Callaway Golf was founded in 1982 by the late Ely Callaway, a visionary entrepreneur who operated under a simple but profound business promise: deliver superior, pleasingly different products and services. That philosophy turned what was originally a boutique manufacturer of high-quality wedges and putters into the world’s largest maker of premium, performance golf products. The Callaway mission and vision has remained the same; they passionately pursue advanced, innovative technologies that help golfers of all abilities find more enjoyment from the game.

Their 2015 releases are no exception to that philosophy, combining time-tested technology with 33 years worth of innovation.

Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 Driver

The Big Bertha Alpha 815 is a new category of driver. We lowered the center of gravity, increased MOI and found more ball speed with a breakthrough R•MOTO Face and multi-material construction. The revolutionary Gravity Core can push CG even lower, increasing forgiveness and optimizing ball speed at impact. The result is a low spinning, incredibly forgiving driver that goes a long way.

Maximum Distance From Lower Spin
We lowered the spin in the Alpha 815 to help you maximize distance. How’d we do it? Start with a forged composite crown to save weight. Add in our patented Gravity Core for an adjustable Center of Gravity. The result: a low spinning bomber without compromise.

Speed and Forgiveness From A Lighter, Stable Face
Remember this name – R•MOTO Technology. It’s new. It’s groundbreaking. It provides the structure to save weight and allow an ultra thin face that maintains stability while elevating smash factor. Every driver should have this. Only Big Bertha does.

Maximum Adjustability
7 gram and 1 gram weight ports allow you to set the driver to neutral, draw or fade bias. And our OptiFit hosel provides 8 different loft (-1, S, +1, +2) and lie angle (Draw or Neutral) configurations.

Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 Double Black Diamond Driver

Big Bertha Double Black Diamond is the perfect choice if you need ultra low spin to maximize your distance. It’s made for players that generate high ball speeds and hit the ball in the center of the face a majority of the time.

The face is lighter from R•MOTO technology, and we use that leftover weight to move the center of gravity low to reduce spin. In the Double Black Diamond, we’ve also added a taller Gravity Core so you can finely tune your spin and launch conditions in a compact head shape with a deep face.

Maximum Distance From Extreme Low Spin
This is the lowest spinning driver we’ve ever made. If you have the ball speed and launch conditions to match, extreme distance will be there.

Lighter Weight In The Face Leads To Low CG
Remember this name – R•MOTO. It’s the new face technology that provides structure and saves weight (leading to higher ball speeds all across the face), and we use that weight to move the CG low and more forward to give you even more speed.

Adjustable Launch Conditions
We modified the crown of the driver so we could fit a taller Gravity Core. This gives you more spin separation between low and high settings. All without changing loft or face angle.

Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 Fairway Wood

The Big Bertha Alpha 815 Fairway Wood adjusts for the ball flight you want to play. It’s a low spin club that’s great off the tee when you move the weight forward, or a high launch club with more forgiveness when you move the weight back. You also get ball speed and more forgiveness all over the face from a Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup. It’s a fairway wood that gives you what you need, wherever you need it.

Ball Speed and Forgiveness All Over The Face
A Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup creates ball speed at every impact location, especially on misses low on the face.

Adjustable Launch Conditions
Move the adjustable weights (3g and 30g) for the ball flight you want. Lower spin when the weight is in the forward position, and more forgiveness with higher launch when the weight is back.

Compact Head Shape
An appealing look, especially for better players.

OptiFit Adjustability
8 way adjustability for loft and lie angle.

Premium Aftermarket Shaft Options
A comprehensive shaft matrix, available at no upcharge.

The Big Bertha Alpha 815 Hybrid focuses on a more penetrating trajectory, ball speed and adjustability preferred by better players. There’s speed all across the face, with controlled ball flights and less spin from a Center of Gravity that’s low and forward. Add in a compact head shape and OptiFit Adjustability, and you have a complete distance hybrid for better players.

Ball Speed All Over The Face
High speed at every impact location from a Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup.

The new Big Bertha Irons will give you distance where you need it – true story.

It’s the BALL SPEED all across the face that makes this distance a reality because for the first time ever, we’re putting the same 360 Face Cup technology we use in our fairway woods into our irons.

More Flexible Face
A more flexible iron face helps the ball jump off the club with some serious ball speed behind it. It adds to the forgiveness too – the ball speed is high wherever you hit it on the face.

Maximum Forgiveness
Your shots will launch higher and fly straighter. Hollow body construction lets us put the weight where we want it so you get an incredibly forgiving iron.

Advanced, Progressive Looks
The sole designs are what you want to see – wider in the longer irons to give you confidence, narrower in the shorter irons because we know you’ll hit those well. With a progressive, modern topline, you can take one look at the Big Berthas and know that they’ll work for you.

Premium Shaft Offerings
We’re combining our best Big Bertha technology with some of the most premium aftermarket shafts out there. Choose from the UST Recoil shaft in graphite or the True Temper SpeedStep 80 in steel.
