New Mizuno signings on European Tour

Announced themselves today.

Oliver Fisher, Eddie Pepperell, Jorge Campillo, Lasse Jensen.

Add that to Keith Mitchell, Adam Schenk - both of whom have the game to do some real damage this year.  Lucas Glover, Nick Watney, Jhonattan Vegas and Luke Donald on PGA Tour.  Not forgetting Sir Nick.

Freshest line up of players in a very long time and hopefully a couple more still in the pipeline.   Plus plenty of winners from last year still playing the irons out of contract.

" Plus plenty of winners from last year still playing the irons out of contract."

That must be a really satisfying thing to be able to say ........  :)

It is.  Though it's just nice to have some new players in the proper stable.  It's been a really long time since we had anyone new to work with.

I like Pepperell's style. Not afraid to tell it like it is. Very different to the mind boring "media trained" cardboard cutouts we have nowadays.

Presumably Mizuno's contract does not require him to "toe the line"?

There was something on his blog though:

Mizuno JPX irons. The ‘Tour’ heads, not the ones you’ll find on the shelf in your pro shop, sorry. Also I’ll be using the Mizuno wedges. Not only do they feel like a Mizuno, but they look like a Vokey*.


So are Mizuno pros getting different heads than us?

Yes I’ve followed Eddie since his ‘wise old owl’ days, seems like a good chap.

I’d also be interested in MPX’s view on the above though.
