Upcoming Golf Club Releases

Club manufacturers are announcing new club models, variations, and other equipment updates at an endless rate, and it can be hard to keep up with all of the latest news. We’ve got you covered. Check out some of the upcoming golf club releases for August and September 2019.

TaylorMadeTaylorMade P-790 2019

TaylorMade P790 Irons and UDI Driving Iron

Two years after the first P790 irons were released, TaylorMade is back with an updated 2019 model. This year’s release features a thinner face, smaller blade length, and also 15% extra tungsten in the head to provide players with a higher launch angle. The 4140 carbon-steel faced club will include TaylorMade’s SpeedFoam technology injected into the clubhead, just like the original model.

TaylorMade will also release a new P790 UDI driving iron, featuring the same SpeedFoam technology. The club has been designed with added forgiveness and better ball speeds in mind.

Release date: September 6, 2019.

Price: P790 Irons: $1,399.99 Steel, $1,599.99 Graphite. P790 UDI 2-iron: $229.99.

TaylorMade P790 Ti Irons

TaylorMade is wading into the waters of the ultra-premium market with the P790 Ti. The club is being branded as the “most premium, technically advanced iron” that TaylorMade has ever created. They resemble player’s clubs in appearance, but are actually closer to game improvement irons. Featuring a titanium face, the club has a wider sole, longer blade, and taller face than the new standard P790. A Thru-Slot Speed Pocket design is a major feature of the iron, which gives players a larger sweet spot as a result.

Release date: November 8th, 2019.

Price: $2,800 Steel, $3,000 Graphite.

Cleveland Golf

Cleveland CBX 2 WedgeCBX 2 Wedge

If you’re looking for a new wedge to pair with your game improvement irons, Cleveland has you covered. The new CBX 2 wedge has a cavity back and is designed with maximum forgiveness in mind. With the same groove technology as the Cleveland RTX-4 wedges, the CBX 2 also includes an improved version of the Feel Balancing Technology found in the original CBX. Cleveland is pushing the easy factor with this wedge, above all emphasizing the idea that it should be nearly automatic for most golfers.

Release date: August 30th, 2019.

Price: $139.99 Steel, $149.99 Graphite.

Mizuno

T20 Wedge

Mizuno is bringing back the T-Series in 2019. After going to the S18 model last year, the Japanese club manufacturer has decided to return to the popular T-series that was so popular with the public and on tour. The most notable difference between the T20 and the previous T7 model is the new Hydroflow Micro Grooves. This feature is designed to battle wet conditions on the course, with grooves that maintain spin rates while releasing moisture. Mizuno is also adding Boron into the Grain Flow Forging, which they claim will increase the life-span of the grooves. Three finish options of Satin Chrome, Blue Ion, and Raw will be available.

Release date: September 20th, 2019.

Price: $150.00

MP-20 Irons

Mizuno MP-20Mizuno will follow the popular MP-18 series with the new MP-20 range of irons. The lineup of irons is made up of the MP-20 MB, MP-20 MMC, and MP-20 HMB. The MB blade model is a pure, single piece of carbon steel, while the MMC features a more playable design with a cavity back, a titanium muscle plate, and a tungsten sole weight. The HMB line is a hollow-headed iron, with the cosmetic appeal of a blade and the playability of a cavity back. This Hybrid Muscle Back is the first of its kind in a Mizuno iron line.

Release date: September 20th, 2019.

Price: MP-20 MB: $162.50 per iron. MP-20 MMC & MP-20 HMB: $175.00 per iron.

Ben Hogan Launches New Irons, Wedges

There hasn’t been a new club released under the Ben Hogan name in almost two years. That will change in April, when Ben Hogan launches a new version of the Edge irons, as well as new Equalizer wedges.

Edge Irons

The Edge revisits the most popular club line in Ben Hogan’s history, repeating a name that was found on the first Edge irons thirty years ago. As with previous versions of the Edge, the clubs are meant as game-improvement irons that sport a design to appeal better players. The new design makes sure to echo the appearance of previous Hogan irons, while updating the technology to compete with modern clubs. This includes constructing the head with two separate forged parts, in order to incorporate perimeter weighting technology. Take a look at some of the other updates below: Continue reading Ben Hogan Launches New Irons, Wedges

Does Golf Club Lie Angle Affect Direction?

Yes, Lie Angle Affects Direction

Everything about the golf swing eventually comes down to one question.  Did my golf ball go where I wanted it to?  Let’s talk about how much affect lie angle has on the direction of your golf ball.

What is Golf Club Lie Angle?

You have heard over and over again how important it is to have your clubs fitted to your swing.  But you are probably thinking “How much difference can it really make?”.  The answer could be a significant amount depending on how far out of line your clubs are with your swing.

First, we need to make sure we have a good understanding of what lie angle is.  The lie angle is the angle between the sole of the club and shaft.  If the toe is down at impact, the lie angle would be considered flat.  A toe up condition would be considered upright.  An ideal lie angle would have the sole of the club parallel with the ground at impact.

Now that we understand what the lie angle is, let’s talk about the effects of having clubs with the wrong lie angle.  Continue reading Does Golf Club Lie Angle Affect Direction?
