Everyone was impressed by the performance of Brooks Koepka at the US Open earlier this year. His iron play was phenomenal all week, thanks to a new set of irons he recently put in the bag…the Mizuno JPX900 Tour.
Brooks Koepka was a former Nike player, but when Nike announced they were pulling out of the equipment market, Brooks was no longer under contract, rather than signing with another manufacturer straight away, he decided to use his preferred equipment of choice.
Brooks was given a set of Mizuno JPX900 Tour Irons to test by Mizuno’s PGA Tour Manager Jeff Cook, he was really impressed by the performance and put them in play straight away.
Since Brooks Koepka’s US Open victory, a lot of attention has been drawn towards the Mizuno JPX900 Tour Irons. Many players on the European Tour have made enquiries about testing these irons, there’s also been a knock-on effect with players wanting to test other models from the Mizuno Iron range.
The players on tour who have put the Mizuno JPX900 Tour irons in play have given great feed back. They love the traditional look, they perform like an MP iron but with an added element of forgiveness, certain players gained the lower launch angle and spin rate they were looking for compared to other irons they were testing.
The following Mizuno irons in play this week at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open:
Mizuno JPX900 Tour: Luke Donald, Jordan Smith, Robert Rock, Ross Fisher, Dylan Frittelli, Lasse Jensen, Magnus Carlsson
Mizuno MP5: Chris Wood, Sam Walker
Mizuno MP15: Benjamin Herbert
Mizuno MP25: Mark Foster
