Mizuno JPX 850 Driver: Packed with Mizuno’s Cutting Edge Technology

Mizuno is bringing their entire chart topping iron technology into the driver market. The JPX 850 driver is an elite, top-notch driver that is loaded with advanced technology. This has all the best innovations packed into one design. On top of the design the looks and color make this a flawless driver. The crown has a piercing blue color that flows into the black ion plated finish on the sole. Enough about looks, let’s get into the technology.

The JPX 850 driver features a Rebound Crown which goes from the top of the crown to the sole, creating a rebound and trampoline-like effect off the face for explosive distance.

The JPX 850 driver has two removable, eight gram tungsten weights that can be moved and positioned in the central fast track sliding rail, or the two lateral slots. The fast track allows for 10 different flight settings, 4 neutral, 3 draw, or 3 fade. sliding rail will dial in the spin rate. Testing on Trackman showed there to be a difference of up to 300 rpm of spin depending upon the position in the fast track center rail. The lateral weight slots allow you to alter the shot shape to a draw or fade bias. Testing on Trackman accounted for roughly 20 yards of discrepancy when the weights were placed in the two extreme positions of the lateral slots.

“The genius of the new Fast Track is that it adds the dimension of launch angle and spin rate. Now the player is truly in control of maximizing all aspects of their ball flight off the tee.” Chuck Couch, VP of Product Management

To take adjustability to the next level the Mizuno JPX 850 driver has a Quick Switch shaft release system. This system allows for eight different loft settings, 7.5 – 11.5 degrees. The driver will is available in one head design (430cc) with one loft, 9.5 degrees. The driver will have the Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft as a stock shaft, not an in-house design. However, there are other shafts available through custom options.


The Mizuno JPX 850 fairway wood is a direct extension of the JPX 850 driver. It’s all about distance and maintaining workability.

The Shock Wave sole allows the entire head of the golf club to flex at impact, transferring all the energy back to the golf ball for increased ball speeds and maximum distance.

“The Shock Wave sole enables the entire head to flex – delivering an additional source of energy to the golf ball. It’s hugely improved way to increase ball speeds for un-matched distance.” David Llewellyn, Golf Club R&D Manager

The JPX 850 fairway wood has a strategically placed weight for a low CG. This low CG will increase the sweet area and produce easy launching shots from all course conditions.

The JPX 850 fairway wood features the quick switch adjustability that can also be found in the JPX 850 driver. This allows the golf club a total of four degrees of adjustability. The fairway wood is available in a 3 (15 degrees), 5 (18 degrees), and 7 (21 degrees). The fairway wood will have the Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft as a stock shaft. However, there are other shafts available through custom options.


The JPX 850 Hybrid features all the same great technology as the JPX 850 fairway wood, except for the quick switch adjustability. Even though it doesn’t have the adjustability, it’s available in multiple lofts sure to find a fit into any player’s bag.

“Hybrids have always played an important part in my set make-up. With this new JPX-850 hybrid, I have seen a noticeable improvement in distance control and ease of ball flight” Stacy Lewis, LPGA Professional

It’s available in a 2 (16 degrees), 3 (19 degrees), 4 (22 degrees), and  (25 degrees). The hybrid will have the Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft as a stock shaft. However, there are other shafts available through custom options.

The History of the Ryder Cup

Although the Ryder Cup was first contested in 1927, matches were played in an unofficial form several years prior to this. The first unofficial match took place in 1921 and saw Great Britain win 9-3, the second unofficial match in 1926 was an even worse day at the office for the Americans, who had travelled to England for Open qualifying.

It was the 1926 match that proved the most significant, as in the gallery for that meeting was English entrepreneur Samuel Ryder. Ryder took up Golf following doctor’s orders to partake in light exercise; he became infatuated with the sport so much so, that he hired golfing great Abe Mitchell as his tutor.

In the bar after the match, George Duncan said to Ryder “This is wonderful. It’s too bad we don’t have a match like this which is official.” Ryder’s response was “why not”? He then kindly agreed to donate a gold chalice to the event, but on one condition, the figure upon the chalice would have to resemble British golfing star Abe Mitchell.

His wish was duly met, and in 1927, the inaugural match took place at the Worcester Country Club in Massachusetts. The first blood was to the Americans who won 9.5-2.5 – this was the beginning of nearly six decades of dominance.

Sadly, due to ill health, Ryder only lived to witness two Ryder Cups on home soil and in January 1936, he passed away aged 77. His love for the game was evident when he was buried with his favorite five iron! Little did Ryder know that he the Ryder Cup would become one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events and bring joy and inspiration to millions of golfers and fans all over the world.

After the event was postponed due to the war, exhibition matches took place instead.  The Ryder Cup resumed in 1947 at the Portland Gold Club in Oregon.

In 1979, dramatic changes were made to representation rules which resulted in Great Britain becoming team Europe.  This meant that Spanish golfing legends Seve Ballesteros and Antonio Garrido were available for selection, and in 1979, they become the first continental golfers to play in the Ryder Cup.

Even though the Americans remained dominant after the representation rules, it wasn’t for long as the Europeans continuously closed the gap in playing standards. After narrowly losing on American soil in 1983, the Europeans were confident that they could finally keep the trophy on their side of the Atlantic for the first time since 1957. In 1985 Europe did just that, beating the Americans 16 ½ – 11 ½ at the Belfry club in Warwickshire, England.

Having finally achieved their goal to win back the Ryder Cup, Europe had a new goal, to make history and win for the first time on American soil. The 1987 Ryder Cup was hosted at Muirfield Village, the course that Jack Nicklaus built, and it was Nicklaus himself who was given the task of captaining the American side, but not even he could prevent the European invasion with Europe winning 15-13.

1989 saw the popularity of the Ryder Cup increase dramatically when matches were televised back to America for the first time. After years of dominance came to an end and the Ryder cup become more of an even contest, American golf fans suddenly started to take an interest in the competition.

Since 1987, Europe has been the more dominant of the two teams, winning 7 Ryder Cups to the United State’s 4.  This year Gleneagles will host the Ryder Cup in what promises to be another great spectacle.
