Mizuno TP and MP Timeline

3 posts in this topic


A few years ago I sold a bunch of old blades from my garage, Wilson Staff Fluid Feel, Mizuno TP-9 and TP-11. At the time I sold those I did some research at internet and bumped in to a nice website showing the timeline of Mizuno TP clubs and some of the start of MP clubs.

I used to play TP-9 for quite some years, which was a difficult muscleback with some extra weight in the sole, helping for a higher trajectory and switched to TP-11 also played by Sandy Lile at the time he won the Open, with a Sandy at the 18th.

Now I am a Mizuno man once again, I was looking for this info again, but nowhere to be found.

I know Mizuno USA has a history, but not very accurate .... TP-9 (1999-2000????), while I think TP-9 was more like in the mid 80's.

Any Idea's !

**Seems to be a type-o from the mizuno website. Mizuno has the MP-5 listed from 84-87 and the MS from 90-92. Looks as if these have been inverted as all the other MP versions were released after their MS counterpart. For this reason I have listed the dates as I think they should be.

See the picture of them all at this link

All info from the following two sites. (When dates conflicted I went with Mizuno's site)
Mizuno Retired Clubs

Iron finder

Please let me know if there are any I missed.

Well I used to play the TP series, which were prior to the MP series....... there were lots of TP models, TP-9, TP-11, TP-Z, TP-2000 etc,

TP stands for Tour Proven, I don't know why it went from TP to MP.

TP-9 would be something like the current MP-68, quite difficult to use, but lots of power behind the ball........ I hope I still had these, two weeks not at the range ... a disaster, but they really went low and far when hit pure, with that climbing trajectory.

    • Do you KNOW your score as you play?

    • Reporting scores in abnormal conditions
      By DrvFrShow · Posted
      Although there was a round I was playing when it started out with a light drizzle and calm situation, then a squall line hit with straight rain. I'd just hit my tee shot when the winds and rain hit. And it got cold and it stung. I quit the round. By the time I got to the clubhouse, the downpour started. I got a rain check at the desk. Essentially a 6.5 hole mulligan. lol.
    • A summer holiday to Scotland - advice needed!
      By b101 · Posted
      Hi all, So, my wife and I have decided to head way north for our summer holidays this year, and she's actually allowing me to take the clubs, to play 3, maybe 4 courses when we're up there... So, the question is, which ones? At the moment, I have carte blanche, but ideally courses near somewhere she could entertain herself.  At the moment, I'm thinking definitely Dornoch and perhaps trying for Troon and North Berwick. I'm happy to pay whatever, so also looking at Prestwick, Turnberry (but not sure what the status will be after course edits), Kingsbarns, Castle Stuart, Cruden Bay and Machrihanish. For anyone who's headed up there, any suggestions are welcome! Thanks, Ben
    • What is your target score?
      By DrvFrShow · Posted
      I've mapped out a 72 on google map and then added in crappy putting and made it a 78. However, I know that battle plans only survive first contact with the enemy. Then if I look at the course as hitting a bucket of balls, how many bad or off target shots do I hit out of say 93 balls? 15 or so that will cost me a stroke. Sometimes one of those is on the green. Sometimes one of those is in the rough. Sometimes one of those is on the fairway. And that's how I get to 93 from 78. Face it. I suck at golf.
