New Mizuno fairway wood spotted at Travelers Championship
It wasn’t just Titleist having all the fun showing off new TSR metal woods on the range at the Travelers Championship this week. Mizuno also got in on the action by testing an unreleased 3-wood with staffer Keith Mitchell on the range Tuesday.
We were unable to get in-hand pictures of the club since it is still going through prototype and initial testing but we were able to grab a few snaps from a distance during Keith’s testing session with Mizuno reps.
It looks like Mizuno is adopting a multiple-metal construction approach for this fairway wood. They have used steel, titanium, and carbon composite in various configurations over the years but it could be that they are putting them all together into this model. It is also possible the lighter colour sole plate has a tungsten component to it, which would further help make the club more forgiving.
Another thing of note is the blue channel built into the sole behind the face and in front of the sole plate. Mizuno has used similar channels in the past to help with face flex with the purpose of increasing ball speed, but this certainly looks to be the largest channel they have built to date.
We don’t have word on any official release date, but from afar the testing session with Mitchell seemed to bring positive feedback. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
