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 !

I google Mizuno mp33 irons and found this site called Sand Trap:
If you google mp-9 you will find some results also.

**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

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.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
