The Ultimate Combination of Sophistication and Cutting-Edge Performance Technology; MP-15 Iron Delivers Forgiveness without Sacrifice
Norcross, Ga. – Luke Donald is known for one of the smoothest swings on tour and absolute precision with his irons. So it’s only appropriate that the PGA Tour professional and long-time Mizuno advocate had a strong hand in the development of Mizuno’s latest “players” iron, the MP-15, an iron that offers sophistication at address and delivers state-of-the-art performance.
Mizuno, a world-class leader in iron technology, design and development, collaborated with the former World No. 1 to combine the favorite elements of the company’s popular MP-59 and MP-64 lines into one powerhouse iron. The result is a “players” iron in a class of its own that merges the sleek head shape of the MP-64 with the groundbreaking Ti-Muscle technology in the MP-59.
“To have one of the game’s truly elite ball strikers and iron players involved in the development process of our irons to ensure they meet his standard and gain his seal of approval cannot be underestimated,” said Chuck Couch, Vice President of Product Development, Golf Division. “Our goal was to deliver a forgiving MP iron while designing a compact ‘players’ head to accommodate those golfers looking to gain an edge in ball striking, feel and forgiveness. MP-15 will be a game changer in the ‘players’ iron category.”
Luke Donald provided detailed feedback throughout the developmental stages of the MP-15 irons. His insight and knowledge of “feel and sound” at impact allowed Mizuno to precisely dial in the H.I.T(Harmonic Impact Technology), a vibration management technology, to deliver the buttery Mizuno feel players crave at impact.
A more versatile and compact head design infused with Mizuno’s new 3D Ti Muscle Technology, expands the sweet area while adding thickness at the point of impact creating a forged iron that has the forgiveness of a much larger players club. The grain-flow forged 1025 Elite gives the iconic soft, solid and consistent feel golfers come to expect from Mizuno irons.
Its tour-proven sole design with a rounded leading edge gives golfers the confidence and versatility to work the ball from difficult lies allowing them to aggressively pin seek. MP-15 comes standard in elegant satin nickel chrome plating in line with its MP predecessors.
