Following the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, we’re typically asked, “What was new? Anything interesting?”
There were a few highlights, but one surprise was no TaylorMade.
TaylorMade isn’t alone, in fact a lot of companies will take an occasional break. Minuzo wasn’t in Orlando in 2018, but returned this year to introduce new ST190 woods and JPX919 irons, bags and accessories.
“After a short hiatus, we were thrilled to be back at the PGA Show to unveil our new ST190 woods and JPX919 Hot Metal Pro irons,” said Director of Golf for Mizuno, Jeremy Galbreth. “And it was nice to have former World No. 1, Luke Donald, with us for the experience as well.”
The ST190 metal woods are for mid to low spin with maximum stability, the ST190 woods will be available nationwide and in Canada in February 2019. The JPX919 iron line will also be extended to feature a fourth model available. The new JPX919 family comprises JPX919 Tour, JPX919 Forged, JPX919 Hot Metal, and now the JPX919 Hot Metal Pro. Each model has been engineered from different base materials to help enhance performance for particular swing types.
