    Got out to practice for the first time in a long time, baby currently 4 days overdue, hit 2 buckets of balls and was really just trying to focus on a nice fluid motion, went in with low expectations and hit the ball very well.



    I went out on a couple of holes and I have to say I am slightly concerned with the distance of my new irons, the dispersion is great but I swear I'm hitting them like a good club shorter than I am used to.



    Whether this is down to shaft length, with my old irons being about an inch longer, I don't know. Or maybe it was the conditions. Will have to do more on course testing to see.



    They are lovely and buttery soft, almost too soft with the chrome soft perhaps a slightly firmer ball would be a better match?



    I did however love the 54 around the greens, found it very good to chip with and found the bounce extremely good in the sand, I normally always use a 60 out of the sand but this was very easy out of the firmish moist sand yesterday.



    On the hunt for a 50* and 60* still.

    I had a similar thing when I switched to the MP18s. For me it was that I was hitting it more in the toe. I checked with impact tape, actually painters tape haha. Once I got that straighten out the distance has been spot on. They definetly aren't as forgiving as my last set of MP5s, I know real quick if I miss hit one.

    things could well be slightly off, definitely quite a drastic change in length & lie from my old irons, certainly hope its just that as they are so beautiful, and cost a lot of £££

    How does the distances you are seeing on the course differ from your fitting? An inch will certainly effect the clubhead speed but as you already a long baller it shouldn't really matter too much.

    Think I've only hit the 6 iron once on course and it seemed about 5 yards shy carry compared to fitting data, low 180 carry.



    Will have to get to the course and investigate this further. Also be intrigued to get my old irons out the garage and see how much they are different to my clubs now in length, as doing a bit of digging I've read that Mizunos tend to be shorter than most other companies standard lengths?



    I still have my old GW in the bag currently and that is the same length as my new 9 iron.

    The mizuno 6 iron is just over 3/4 inch shorter than my x forged. 8 iron was the same.



    I've ordered some shaft extensions and will get them extended up and then have to get them flattened out



    I also see on the invoice they have put .58 grips on and the x100 amt are a .60 butt, the grips do feel larger than my driver and 3 wood. So these will get replaced when I lengthen. Not an ideal start to my new irons!

    Dave - it’s gotta be frustrating to get a “custom fit” set and immediately have to get them lengthened..... by almost an inch?!



    Where was the disconnect? The fitting? The custom build? Both?

    Were the clubs sent wrong length by mistake? Or were they ordered wrong? Or just fit incorrectly?

    Mizuno irons are a 1/4” shorter than callaway

    I would speak with the fitter and or Mizuno and explain the situation and get them to readjust the clubs how you would like them. But it's strange how they clubs have turned out to be so different from your expectations.

    The length issue isn't Mizuno's fault, the fitter suggested I try 1/2 inch over instead of an inch over like my callaway and see how I get on as I would probably have more control. What he didn't say/realise is that Mizunos are already shorter than callaway standard lengths.



    Not sure whether it was the person who ordered them or mizuno's fault who decided putting 0.58 grips on a .60 butt was.



    The bigger issue that I realised this morning, and have since contacted the fitter about, is that Mizuno have fitted the wrong shafts into them. We ordered and were fit for AMT X100, what they have supplied is the Tour White AMT x100, which although is very similar, is not the same shaft and not what was ordered. I just thought it was a different shaft decal but after looking up butt diameters yesterday I now realise they are actually 2 different shafts.



    So I am returning the irons to my club and they are going to send them back to Mizuno, they also reckon they can get them to change the length, will go for an inch longer which should be 3/4 long compared to callaway so much similar to my x forged. Will also get the grip issue sorted.



    This is of course very annoying, but tbh with baby due any day now I won't be playing much golf so it's a very good time for them to go back.

    Apparently Mizuno say they no longer supply clubs with the AMT X100, despite supplying it in their fitting stuff.



    The club are going to get in contact with the rep.



    Anyone know the difference between the tour white and standard?

    Last Saturday at 6.03pm I became a father!



    Little lad and mum both doing well, he needs to work on his grip a little bit but the early signs are promising



    42009375382_15018451be_k.jpg





    Had a phone call from my club about the irons, Mizuno have admitted that it's their fault and have now apparently sent out an email to fitting centres to warn customers fit into AMT X100 that they will be supplied with the tour white version.



    So I'm going to go back to the club at some point and do another fitting for free with the irons to see if the shafts are as good, and Mizuno will change the shafts FOC. I'd like to do a bit more testing before, with the irons feeling noticeably heavier, when I switch to my old irons or my woods I seem to be leaving the face open. not sure if this is down to shaft being heavier/stiffer or grips being a bit larger or a bit of both. Since getting fitted for my driver the improvement has been astonishing, I'm driving it so well especially given how little im practicing or playing. One of the shafts the DNA through up was project x 6.0, similar to pxi I have in the forged and same manufacturer of my woods shafts. So it concerns me slightly that the driver has been effected since getting the new irons.



    So it may well be a blessing in disguise that I can swap the shaft to compliment the rest of the bag better than the x100 AMT seems to.

    Thanks guys, has been very tiring but loved (nearly) every second image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />



    Had our 3rd round of the Daily Mail Foursomes last week which we won, I played very well especially considering I haven't practiced. Used my old irons and the driver was back to straight bombs again. So want to test the x100 shafts again and see how the driver reacts but I'm sure it was down to the extra weight and stiffness of the shafts changing swing slightly.



    Have got a 36 hole scratch competition at my club this Saturday which I won last year so will hopefully squeeze a bit of practice in this week in preparation for that. Will try and get the iron refitting done the week after.



    My putting was also much improved, distance control is better, stroke is better as can be seen in video below. I've always had a short backstroke and accelerated and much longer through stroke, I've done lots of drills and tried to change this to no avail. Since changing my routine and reacting quicker this seems to have magically solved this fault. Maybe more important than anything I'm in a much better space mentally when putting.

    Tracking says it should arrive tomorrow, hopefully I can get it bent a couple of degrees flat* in time to use Saturday.

    Title successfully defended!



    28553861458_4f2fc3ca72_b.jpg



    It was a 36 hole scratch Medal, honestly I didn't hit the ball all that well but scored very well. Anytime I did hit it close I converted the putt. And short game was also very good.



    Annoyingly got nervous and let my body move on a 2 foot par putt to shoot 71 first round and pulled it. ****head. An annoying way to end a solid round and I was a bit annoyed over lunch but determined to go out in the afternoon round and keep the good golf going.



    42429390701_7a47855012_b.jpg



    2nd round started with a solid par, then SW to 5 feet - birdie, driver 7 iron to 3 feet - birdie.



    Birdied 6 from 7 feet, then knocked it on the par 5 7th and 3 putted, grrr. nearly holed a pitch on 9 for tap in birdie. Then chipped in on 11 to go 5 under.

    Course record was fully in my mind and I was feeling good, unfortunately I was feeling so good I proceeded to airmail the tricky par 3 12th green with a wedge, I can only put it down to adrenaline? As I don't often hit a wedge 165 carry image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' /> Faced with a bad lie pitching to a tight flag with water the other side, I chunked it, then hit quite a good chip to 5 feet but lipped the putt. Then hit an awful 2 iron off the tee on 13 and made bogey. Hit a bad 4 iron on 14 and head was spinning a bit. Regrouped and focused on the next shot, nearly holed the chip but ran 5 feet past, made that in the middle. Easy par on the tough 15th. Then another bad 2 iron on 16 cost me a bogey, back to -1. 17 is a monster Par 5 but we were playing from the slightly forward tee which enables a really good drive to carry the corner. I took the same route in the 1st round and made birdie, playing it safe with an iron off the tee crossed my mind but said no, stay aggressive and play it as this morning, Hit probably the best drive of the day which flew the corner and rolled out to 318 yards. I then hit 3 wood pin high 15 feet in the fringe and 2 putted for birdie. A routine par on the last and I had defended the title.



    My handicap had crept up to 0.5 but I am now 0.0.



    Obviously extremely happy especially with how little I've been practicing and playing since the little man has arrived.
