Luke Donald put a set of brand-new Mizuno MP-64 irons in his bag for the FedExCup playoffs and the Ryder Cup, and they are available to everyday golfers as well.
"Luke Donald played a crucial role in the design stage, providing valuable perspective that allowed us to create our best 'player' irons to date," said Mizuno USA Vice President and General Manager Dick Lyons. "If the feel and performance satisfy Luke, we're confident we've created an iron that is going to perform for a lot of players."
Donald, well known as one of the game’s best iron players, consulted with Mizuno’s engineers throughout the development of the MP-64 irons, which Mizuno recommends for players with handicaps ranging from 10 down to +2. He was especially instrumental in the design of the irons’ soles, making sure they would deliver consistent turf interaction for predictable trajectory.
From the sole up, the key to these high-level irons is their ability to enhance ball control. To do this, Mizuno focused on precisely controlling the vibration frequencies at the point of impact – which Mizuno calls Harmonic Impact Technology (H.I.T.), and which optimizes sound and feel through Mdal Analysis software. The irons also feature a flow cavity design that features a deeper cavity in the long irons for increased playability and a shallower cavity in the mid and short irons for enhanced control and workability.
The irons are made from high-quality 1025E Pure Select steel using Mizuno's patented Grain Flow Forging Process, and feature a compact head size for additional workability and modified U-Grooves to produce proper spin for maximum playability in all conditions. They are finished off with a double-nickel chrome coating, highlighted with a 3D forged Mizuno Runbird logo.
The MP-64s come in 3-iron through pitching wedge, and come standard with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts and Golf Pride M-31 58 Round grips. They carry a suggested retail price of $999.99 per set.
