Just got my new Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver!

6 posts in this topic

I went to a demo day last weekend and I was testing drivers and 60 degree wedges. I hit the Sliders, Coverts and XHots but I fell in love with the Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver with the low spin face and low spin shaft. I was fitted and told I needed to hit an 8 to 9 degree loft with a low spin shaft and maybe even use a low spin ball.  Even though I have great distance they said my spin rate was too high and it caused me to not get max distance. So they recommended the face angle, lie and shaft and I ordered it. It came in today and I picked it up a little earlier.

I can't wait to get on the range today and go play a round with it.  This is the first adjustable driver I have ever owned and the face is set to neutral right now I think.  I have to try to figure out how to close the face like it is on my old Nike Sumo driver.

Congrats!!! How did it sound when getting fitted? Let us know also after using it. I've read that is very loud when hitting balls.

Loud? No way man!  There is a crisp sort of sound but not loud at all.  As a matter of fact my Nike Sumo driver is 3 times as loud as this Mizuno driver is. I'm used to hearing a loud PINK!!!!  from the Nike.  At first the Mizuno sounded like I wasn't making good contact but I quickly figured out that it just wasn't near as loud as my old driver.

It's a pretty good looking club. I've seen it a couple of times, but haven't had a chance to hit it yet. Once you get a few rounds under your belt, be sure to write up a review in the Equipment section of the site !

A few stock photos for those who haven't seen it.

Well, I've played several rounds with this driver and was really beginning to fall in love with it.  That is until an unfortunate incident today.  My wife, son and I were out enjoying the beautiful spring day out on a local golf course. I was playing a casual round myself while my son and wife walked the course to get some exercise.  I teed it up on hole #6 a par 5.  I had been hitting the driver great today with a slight draw and decided I wanted to really go after this one.  So I lined up the shot, slightly closed the face, got some good width on my swing and pow!  Crushed it.  I was impressed until I looked at my driver and saw the shaft had snapped!  I mean, I do have a high swing speed but I don't think I generate the kind of torque to snap a shaft.

Now what do I do?  Will the shaft be replaced by Mizuno or Edwin Watts Golf? I ordered it after trying several and getting fitted at a demo day.

    • Injury Question
      With my insurance I can't afford a MRI.  I got one for my rotator cuff a 2 years ago and my insurance only paid $80 of the bill .  I'm still paying the bill since its either pay off it quickly and struggle with my school loans or pay it off slowly and pump more money into those things I used for school.  Without an MRI, I'm not sure how much help a doctor would be able to give me.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Everyone gets double bogeys. Even the pros. The pros just don't get them often.  We all have blow up holes. Mine tend to come in pairs. Then I'll settle down and hit "the shot." I consider an 8 a blow up hole. It's usually the result of a bad tee shot. Although on a real fast green once it was the result of a four putt.... in a tournament.... when I missed a 1 foot putt. Another thing we tend to do is try to do quick fixes during our rounds. Don't. They don't work. Play with the game you have. Fix your problem at the driving range later. If your driver is in the woods constantly, leave it in the bag for the round, and practice with it on the range. Hit an iron off the tee if you need to keep the ball in play. 
    • Injury Question
      Okay, so this isn't exactly something recent.  In fact its something I did in August, that seems like it just doesn't want to heal completely. The injury in question occurred on my downswing on August 7th, it felt as those I pulled every muscle from underneath my arm pit to the bottom of my ribs.  I gingerly tried a few swings after that and why it was tender I guess endorphins got me through the rest of the round (2 holes).  I probably should have taken a few weeks off to let everything heal after this, but seeing how I had lost 70lbs over the course of 4 months and would go onto lose 130+ lbs by October (mostly through golf) I was kind of blinded by the motivation to keep pushing myself.  I played with severe discomfort for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of faded though it felt tight to make a reaching movement with my left arm. Now months later, the pain is basically gone when it comes to golf, but every now and again if I do some unknown action with my swing I get what feels like popping sensation and the discomfort comes back for that swing.  The tightness when reaching never really went away either.  Most of the time it isn't a problem, its just something that occasionally bothers me and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar?  I'm currently trying to strengthen the muscles around that area to see if responds to what eventually got me over a partially torn rotator cuff.

      Broke 90 a few times this past season, including a nice mid 80's tournament round (shot myself in the foot) and put myself in a higher flight. I think I am a likely monkey candidate too, with my focused practice where I relentlessly practice one move till I get it down.  Love the site.
