Mizuno JPX 919 Tour (4-PW) - Project X LZ 6.0 120g - 0.5° Flat - 1/2" Long

Titleist 917 D2 - Diamana S+ Blue 60S 10.5° - B1 - 12g Fade
After shopping around for a new set of wedges I thought I had got it nailed down with the S18 wedges.....
Until I went to buy them!
I’d tried them a few times and was very happy with the spin, flight, feel, everything! When I went in the store, the pro was busy so went to look at said wedges and noticed a Callaway Mack Daddy Forged. It was probably the only wedge I’d not hit on the store! What a mistake ??‍♂️
Now got 3 Callaway Mack Daddy Forged wedges. For £75 each compared to the £120 for the S18s I’d be stupid not to. Feel ashamed not to get Mizuno but a bargain is a bargain

I found a 900 Hot Metal SW that completely matches my irons... Same shaft, 1" extra long... It even has a jumbo grip on it already, though I'll probably change it to match the rest of the set. It should arrive Thursday or Friday of this week.

(EDIT) Got is, love it, can't wait to play it on Monday!

I like the changes they have made to sole width and blade compared to 900 a Tour which were excellent. Expecting a lot from these beauts!! Hopefully , provided we don't freeze to death well have some good reports after the weekend games!

Yes liked the modus 120s , very very strangely hit my friends 105s in 900 a Forged very well, but really enjoy the LZ s. I picked up a TS 3 Driver also, but do like the new Mizuno offering, just I have so many Titleist shafts at home it would be a bit of a culture shock switching to anything else! All the best for the weekend! Stay warm gents!

Ive probably added around 2-3yds of carry per club but more importantly, managed to lower the spin but increase the height of the flight. Got masses of stopping power with them, even getting instant grab with a 4i at 212yd carry. On the flight scope my average apex across the board with them is 106.6ft!!!

Nothing better than instantaneous advances / improvements. They are also so easy to shape it's a joke. I'm happier that mizuno have slightly flatter lies as standard as some manufacturers are far too upright, which discourages proper arm rotation.

I bought a new golf bag. I've been using a Mizuno stand bag and it's gotten torn up over the years, not to mention I had it in the front yard one day as I was unpacking the car and tripped, fell against it and bent the metal springs on the stand, so it was crippled.

This new bag has more pockets than I honestly know what to do with.

Just ordered a pair of the Nexlite 005 Boa's from an UK vendor. I have the spikeless version that I bought on Ebay a while back that I love, so I'm looking forward to getting the soft spike version!!

I just ordered The Premier Card. Long story short, it's something you pay $59 for and for about a 7 month period, you get deep discounts on about 40 golf courses in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and a few up into the Palm Beach area. There aren't many in Miami, but one is near me and I do have a bunch of friends in the Ft. Lauderdale area who play, so I'll probably drive up there a bit. It includes Inverrary, where the Jackie Gleason tournament used to be. It includes Palmetto Preserve and Jacaranda, quality courses that are semi public and where they make you feel like a member of a ritzy country club when you are there. Doral Silver used to be on it, but some politician decided that had to end.
