Doug Edgar: The unluckiest of them all?

Few golfers today would have heard of possibly the unluckiest of them all but here's the story of James Douglas Edgar, the Newcastle man who was destined to become the best player in the world

Three new irons with three different materials

Mizuno has unveiled three new JPX900 models each using a specific performance-based material. The new JPX900 Series comprises three new models – JPX900 Tour, JPX900 Forged and JPX900 Hot Metal, each with very distinctive performance attributes, made possible by their unique base materials.

Mizuno’s newest material Chromoly 4140M – is introduced in the JPX900 Hot Metal, which combines offensive ball speeds with the adjustability of a forged iron. The secret to this ground-breaking new material is its versatility, which not only paves the way to Mizuno’s thinnest ever cup face for phenomenal distance, but also remains soft and bendable in the hosel for precise lie angle adjustments. The wedges also have their own material – a softer X30 steel that offers all the feel and precision around the greens that even distance-seeking golfers demand.

The JPX900 Forged is the 2nd generation of Mizuno’s Forged irons to use Boron-infused steel, which allows a soft-feeling forged iron to produce higher ball speeds.  Whereas Mizuno’s 1st generation of Boron steel irons used a uniform, thinner face to generate more distance, the JPX900 Forged pushes the technology forward with a multi-thickness face.  The JPX900 Forged also boasts a milled pocket, which enhances energy transfer over a wider impact area without compromising on Mizuno’s renowned feel.  The extended pocket cavity allows 21.5g of weight to be redistributed to the extreme corners of the PowerFrame for added stability and reduced distance loss on mishits. Yet the confidence-inspiring midsize profile will still appeal to professional and elite players, with the shorter irons from 8-GW more compact for extra precision and control at the scoring end of the bag.

The JPX900 Tour, Grain Flow Forged from a single billet of 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel, is the purest, most solid-feeling iron in Mizuno history, combining authentic Mizuno feedback with advanced stability and surprising off-centre performance courtesy of more weight being pushed to the extremities of the head’s PowerFrame. This classic Mizuno player’s iron boasts a satin finish, straighter lines and a toe profile that combines with a compact face and narrow tapered sole to promote crisp ball-striking, excellent workability and enhanced trajectory control.

All three new Mizuno JPX900 iron models will be available at retail from September 2016.
RRPs are JPX900 Hot Metal £105/€150 per iron – JPX900 Tour £120/€165 per iron – JPX900 Forged £120/€165 per iron
