Mizuno MP-630 Fast Track Driver

Friday, February 26th, 2010

In recent years, Mizuno has made great strides with the improvement of their metal wood line and I think that the new MP series is their best effort yet.  The new MP-630 Fast Track driver is a “tour ready” driver featuring a classic pear shape head design and that sets up completely square to slightly open.  Pair that with a sleek black paint job and you have the best looking driver on the market that promotes extreme confidence at address.

Mizuno MP CLK Hybrid

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

If you have been following my blogs, you can probably tell that I am ecstatic over Mizuno’s new club launch.  And although I am mostly pumped for the MP-630 Drivers, this new MP CLK Hybrid definitely has my interest peaked.  A low profile and compact design with a square face angle at address makes this club especially appealing at address.

Mizuno MP Titanium Fairway Woods

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Simply put, the new Mizuno MP Titanium Fairway Wood Line is incredible.  Mizuno took their time and gave the MP line the same amount of attention that they give to their famed irons and wedges.  The MP Titanium Fairway Wood is designed with the advanced player in mind and features a compact, sleek look at address and club face sets up square to slightly open.  The multi-piece Titanium design creates a low and forward center of gravity to promote a penetrating launch with low spin rates.

Bernhard Langer wins Allianz Championship

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

The bunker shot from Bernhard Langer was plugged nearly 45 feet from the hole in a tense playoff at the 2010 Allianz Championship. And as it turns out, the German golfer had John Cook exactly where he wanted him. Langer managed to hole the tough shot for an eagle to edge him out on the all-important first extra hole, much to the delight of his huge fan base in his adopted hometown. (more…)

Mizuno MP-630 Driver

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Mizuno has a storied tradition of making the best irons in the game however their woods have never been promoted and to be honest, I haven’t been too impressed with any driver they have come out with since the cult classic Mizuno Pro 300S.  But after checking out their new MP-630 line of woods, I think that will surely change!  The new Mizuno MP-630 driver is the best looking driver to hit the market since the Titleist 975D.

Trekker TC3 Freestyle Cart

Friday, February 19th, 2010

The new Trekker TC3 Freestlye golf cart has already been making some waves in the golf industry.  The Trekker TC3 was recently awarded a Golf Digest Gold Medal in it’s famed Equipment Hot List and was also a huge hit at this year’s PGA show!!!  The cart was developed to ensure a pleasurable walking experience and is easily the lightest, best-rolling, and balanced golf cart on the market.  The TC3 is a push cart and is not designed to be pulled.  Contrary to popular belief, pull carts twist and contort the body and increases stress on both the spine and shoulders.
