The first tour win for the JPX919 irons came on Sunday at The Safeway Open. Five closing birdies, including three in a sudden-death playoff, helped the winner to his first PGA TOUR victory at the Safeway Open / Silverado Resort & Spa.
The winner played a mix set of JPX919 Tour (5-9) and JPX919 Forged (3 and 4 irons), with a T7 48 degree pitching wedge. Consistent with many of Mizuno’s recent tour successes – the winner was not contracted to play Mizuno irons and did so by choice.
The JPX919’s predecessor – the JPX900 Tour had made a great impact for Mizuno in the previous two seasons, winning back to back US Open titles.
Chris Voshall explains how the JPX919 Tour design improves on its predecessor.
