Mizuno JPX Series Wedge

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Based on the success of the JPX irons, Mizuno decided to release a high performance wedge to complement the lineup.  The new Mizuno JPX wedges share a similar profile to both the JPX and JPX pro irons and feature Mizuno’s quad cut grooves as well as a CNC milled face for maximum spin and consistency.   These wedges are specifically designed for the mid to high handicap golfer, featuring a cavity back design for greater forgiveness and a wider, triple-cut sole for a more effective bounce angle.  The JPX series wedges would make a great addition to your new Mizuno irons, pre-order a set today for a mid-September ship date!

Mizuno MP 59 Irons

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Mizuno’s offerings this fall are extremely strong and I am the most excited for the Mizuno MP 59 iron set.  The MP 59 takes off there the MP 58 left off and it does so in a much savvier manner.  We received out fitting cart heads in yesterday and I just couldn’t resist shafting it up and taking a few swings!  First off, these irons look amazing at address.   The top line is thine and the toe is higher and straighter than the rest of the MP line.  The shape of the toe is very comparable to my beloved MP 29s that now collect dust in my closet but the heads are more modern and definitely more forgiving.  Like the MP 58, the 59 features Mizuno’s patented Ti-Muscle Technology to deliver cavity back forgiveness in a half-cavity design.  When compared to the 58, the MP 59 has a 5% larger sweet spot area.  As with all Mizuno irons, the MP 59s went through extensive modal analysis and harmonic impact testing for both feel and sound optimization at impact.  This testing is clearly evident at impact and  I found this iron to be Mizuno’s strongest effort in feel since the MP 33.   These irons will hit the door the 2nd week of September!

Adidas Tour 360 ATV Golf Shoes

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

New for this fall, the Adidas Tour 360 ATV golf shoe takes off where last year’s Tour 360 left off!  The Tour 360 ATV still features Adidas’s patented 360 wrap and the THINtech low profile technology that gofers have grown to trust,  however traction has been greatly improved thanks to their new ATV technology.  ATV stands for all terrain versatility and this improved traction on all surfaces is made possible by a ground adapting outsole that offers unrivaled forefoot flexibility and zonal traction elements.  Premium full grain leather upper is standard as is the FitFOAM insole for a rich look as well as lasting comfort and support.  The Tour 360 ATV is scheduled to be released in early October and will be available in a wide variety of colors and sizes!

Ping Anser Milled Putters

Friday, August 19th, 2011

There is one word to describe the new Ping Anser Milled Putters: Incredible!  These premium putters are the finest putters that Ping has ever made and I put one in the bag as soon as they hit the door!  Milled from select 303 stainless steel, the Anser putters are refined versions of Ping standards that have been in existence for over 40 years.  Subtle mill marks on the heel and toe prevent glare at the address position and I find the satin nickel finish to be very visually appealing.  There are six different head shapes that are designed for specific stroke types: straight arc, slight arc, and strong arc.  With the help of Ping’s new iFit fitting system, the Anser putters have already been huge success at our shop and we have only had them here for three days!   Pick one up today, you will not be disappointed.

Ping Sydney Putter

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

The Sydney, Ping’s latest high MOI design, just hit the market and after rolling a few putts on our practice green, I am a believer!  40+ years ago, Ping invented the modern day putter and once again, they have set the bar quite high.  The Sydney, is Ping’s anser, no pun intended, to Scotty Cameron’s Kombi putter as well as Taylormade’s popular Spider putter.  The Sydney is made of high-grade lightweight aluminum that contains three 8-gram tungsten weights for maximum forgiveness and optimal center of gravity position.  Besides the crisp feel, the Sydney’s greatest strength is it’s ability to resist twisting so putts stay on line from the moment of impact.  The symmetrical shape and extreme perimeter weighting gives this putter an extremely high MOI.  A distinctive red alignment bar arches from the top line of the face to the back portion of the head for easy alignment and provides a square, balanced top-down appearance at address.  I’ll admit that this putter takes some getting used to, but once you start draining putts does the look really matter?   The Ping Sydney is available to ship now and is offered in both right and left hand!

Ping Anser Forged Wedge

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Say what you will about Ping’s entry into the forged club market, but the new Anser Forged Wedges are outstanding!  Forged from the same 8620 soft carbon steel that the Anser irons are made from, the Anser wedges are sure to deliver in the feel department!  The micro-cavity design allowed for more weight to be placed in the center of the club face for solid feel and feedback at impact.  Optimum spin and consistency is ensured by a milled face and machined grooves while the center of gravity position is optimized by a high-density tungsten toe weight for a penetrating, high spin trajectory.  The Ping Anser wedges are available now!

Srixon Q-Star Golf Balls

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

The new Srixon Q-Star Golf Ball is Srixon’s answer to Bridgestone’s B330RX and RXS golf balls.  The Q-Star is a high-performance golf ball designed for the average player looking for the ultimate in spin, distance, control, and feel.  As with all Srixon golf balls, the Q-Star is very responsive and the acceleration off of the club face is outstanding, especially for players with swing speeds ranging from 80-95 mph.  Performance aside, perhaps the best feature of this ball is the price!  Players can now purchase a tour-level golf ball for less than $30 per dozen!
