Mizuno’s burgeoning iron reputation received another boost on Sunday – with a win on the LPGA Tour. Korea’s Eun Hee Ji claimed the 2018 KIA Classic. Ji, who adores Mickey Mouse and goes by the nickname of the famous character, won with an ace on Sunday’s closing stretch to capture her fourth career win on the LPGA Tour at the Kia Classic. Ji carded a final round 5-under par, 67 to win by two-strokes. Ji played the split cavity version of Mizuno’s MP-18 iron series.
