Donald has played Mizuno irons from his early days learning the game in England, through his record breaking college career, all the way to becoming the world’s #1 ranked player. Mizuno has taken a similar path with it’s forging facility – having first produced heads at Chuo / Hiroshima in 1968.
Chuo and Mizuno’s patented Grain Flow Forging process ensures that its iron heads are manufactured from a single billet of steel. The stretching, bending and multiple forging process ensures that grains within the metal are exceptionally tight – for the most precise manufacturing tolerances. The finished heads are near perfect and identical in finish, feel and distance control. Leading to one of the best known straplines in golf – Nothing feels like a Mizuno.
Luke Donald took a new appreciation for his irons. “It’s amazing to see the metal go from something so raw to something so beautiful. There’s such a human element to it – and that really struck me today.”
“It’s easy to get frustrated on the golf course – but after seeing how much goes into the making of these clubs, I shouldn’t get too angry if I hit a bad shot.”
