The NEW Twist face from Taylormade!

,

 

The new TaylorMade M3 and M4 family of woods are led by a pair of drivers that seek to change the technology landscape of the category. But unlike others who have stretched the boundaries of new materials and construction techniques and mass properties, these new drivers are looking to mine something potentially deeper: data.

Both the M3 and M4 feature a unique multi-curved face design, what the company is calling “Twist Face.” Most drivers feature consistent curve from heel to toe (bulge) and from crown to sole (roll). The idea of bulge and roll is that the negative effects of spin and launch on off-center hits are counteracted by the proper face curvature. This is particularly true for bulge, which curves toe and heel shots that are launching with sidespin back toward the centerline for increased accuracy.

Or so went conventional thinking.

Rickie Fowler-Pro V1

,

World No. 7 Rickie Fowler relied on his Pro V1 golf ball on Sunday to top an elite limited field made up of some of the world’s best players, as he captured the Hero World Challenge (an unofficial event on the PGA Tour) with a course-record-setting final round of 11-under-par 61. Fowler finished four shots clear of runner-up, Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman (Pro V1). Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth (Pro V1x) and Titleist golf ball loyalist Tommy Fleetwood (Pro V1x) tied for 3rd, two more shots back, as Titleist players accounted for each of the top four spots on the leaderboard.

Fowler started the final round seven shots off the lead, but he opened with seven straight birdies and added an eighth at No. 9 for an incredible 8-under-par 28 on the front side at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas.

Last season Fowler won the Honda Classic, finished 7th in the FedExCup race and ranked inside the top 40 on Tour for every category in the Strokes Gained statistics.

“The big thing was to not lose what we had going this past year,” said Fowler, “because it was a very solid year across the board. And what we’re going to work on going forward is just picking up a few of the little things that could have made just that difference to put us in the winner’s circle more on Sunday.”

The new Mizuno ST-180 driver

,

Mizuno has recently released a new ST-180 driver that we spotted on Tour at the 2017 RSM Classic. The company’s “wave sole” technology makes an appearance for the first time in a Mizuno driver; the design is used to push weight low and forward to reduce spin rates, and the construction contracts and expands during impact to increase energy into the golf ball. The result is a lower-spinning driver, especially for those who hit down on the golf ball, and increased ball speeds across the face.

 

 

The ST-180 drivers have a new Forged SP700 Titanium face insert that allows the faces to be made thinner — saving weight from the face while increasing ball speeds — and they feature what the company calls a “Internal Waffle Crown” that saves weight to help shift CG (center of gravity) low and forward in the head.

 

 

 

 

 

There’s a slew of custom shafts available for no upcharge. The stock grip is Golf Pride’s M31 360, and the drivers are selling for $399.99, available in stores now.
