  • This is the most anticipated iron coming out, THE MIZUNO MP-18. The MP-118 is already available in Japan, and the MP-18 is set to be released in early September. I had the opportunity to hit a demo of the MP-18 and it did not disappoint. It is a more compact blade than other blades out there. The MP-18 was designed to be a more traditional shaped head, rather than what other manufacturers making now. Other manufacturers are producing these large blades, so Mizuno wanted to go back to a true blade size.   This means that the MP-18 will not […]

  • Many of our customers are asking if our website has a typo on the Mizuno page… what you’re seeing is correct. The Mizuno MP-118 and the Mizuno MP-18 are two different models. The MP-118 are the Japanese version of the MP-18. They look very similar from first glance, but the difference is a layer below the surface. The Mizuno MP-118 features a copper layer below the face. This allows for a softer feel than a regular one-material blade. The MP-118 are a Japan-only release, and are available now here! The MP-18 will be available in the beginning of September. Have […]

  • You might have seen a familiar face at the 2017 PGA Championship in Quail Hollow. He won the 1991 PGA Championship and the Open Championship in 1995. It’s none other than John Daly. You might have seen him wearing Loudmouth Apparel. His bag is made up of mostly PING clubs, but he has some that might stick out to you. Driver: Vertical Groove VGG (8 degrees) WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS DRIVER! 3 Wood: Ping G400 Stretch (13 degrees) Hybrid: Callaway Apex (2 hybrid) Driving Iron: Ping G400 Crossover (4 iron, 22 degrees) Irons: Ping i200 (5-9 iron) Wedges: Ping Glide 2.0 (46-12 SS, 50-12 SS, 56-12 SS, 60-06 TS) […]

  • He is your 54 hole leader for the 2017 PGA Championship, KEVIN KISNER! Although Kevin rocks Callaway on most of his equipment, it is interesting to find that he DOES NOT use a Mack Daddy lob wedge. If you have read past blogs, you might be able to guess which wedge he is using… The FOURTEEN RM-22 !!! This wedge is just like a Vokey wedge, but with softer feel. Fourteen is a Japanese brand, and their forging process has been comparable to other golf manufacturer’s like Miura and Epon. Most tour players use Fourteen RM-22‘s for the incredible spin […]

  • Is this TaylorMade putter insert threatening the Scotty Cameron putter line? We all knew the TaylorMade Spider Tour was approved by World No. 1 players like Jason Day and Dustin Johnson. However, maybe it’s the insert and not necessarily the shape of the head that had brought them success. The Pure Roll insert by TaylorMade really gets the ball rolling, no pun intended. If you Youtube putter fitting videos, you will learn how important it is to get the ball rolling after impact, and not skipping. Scotty Cameron claims that immediate ball rolling makes the ball push into the ground, […]

  • This has to be one of the most frequently asked questions I get from very good players, and it’s a question that I had asked myself until I did some testing. If you knew a way to save a couple dollars for a dozen of Titleist ProV1 or ProV1x‘s, you almost know the meaning of life. (If you do, comment down below!!!) There is about an $8 difference for a dozen of 2017 ProV1(x)‘s and the previous generation ProV1(x)‘s. “If the difference isn’t so drastic, I’ll just buy the older model.” Titleist has claimed that the newer generation has a […]

  • If you paid attention to the “putter scene” in the past few months, you will have noticed a demand in the TaylorMade Spider Tour. The crimson red, high MOI, Pure Roll insert, and SLANT NECK had everyone drooling over this putter. Not for long! Everyone is wanting the LATEST release of Odyssey O-Works putters. They come in black or red just like the TaylorMade Spider Tour does. Odyssey’s VP has already admitted to copying the looks of the Spider Tour. This 7S shape is the one that everyone is craving. It has the slant neck that many tour pros are […]

  • When you think of PING, you probably think of Bubba Watson’s drives. The DISTANCE and the CONSISTENCY is what you’re looking for. He’s not playing too well right now, so that’s probably the only aspect of his game that you want to acquire. Bubba has claimed to gain an average of 6 yards to his drive, just by switching to the PING G400 driver; that means the average Joe can probable gain at least 10 more yards!  Bubba has also been hitting 60% of his fairways this year, which means the G400 offers control. Now that you know the PING […]

  • We are noticing a significant putter trend on tour. The greatest players in the world are making a switch to the most important club in the bag. We have already talked in the past about players switching from blades to putters, but all these mallets have something very in common. In my opinion, the most three most popular mallet heads players are using are the TaylorMade Spider Tour, the Scotty Cameron X7 shape, and the Odyssey #7S. The secret? Tour players have these putter head shapes, but with a SLANT NECK HOSEL. The first putter we have seen with this […]

  • As time goes on, we are seeing a constant trend with tour players: THEY WANT FORGIVENESS TOO! In the past, many of the best players in the world always wanted the small size, most unforgiving club to hit. Some said it was the way it looked that helped the performance, but the stats never added up. In the shop, we always hear amateurs reiterating what the old school tour pros want: “The tour version please.” “I just can’t get over how big it is at address.” “I’m not really looking for forgiveness.” If you’re not shooting under par consistently, you […]

  • Most golf fanatics are fast to generalize PGA Tour players as long hitters. They think that the reason why PGA Tour players are successful is their 300+ yard drives, which allows shorter irons into green, which means more control, which means more birdies… right? WRONG. Have you seen Jordan Spieth play?!?! Every time he is playing with another top player, his tee shot is always the shortest one. Jordan is 95th in driving distance with 291.7 yards. This means Spieth has to be sharper with the other side of his golf bag, his wedges and putter. Now, most Spieth fans […]

  • There are golfers that do not get technical, and there are others that do. We all have met that player that gets intricate with their game, but really has no business doing so. If Bryson DeChambeau was not on the PGA Tour, you would think he is a nut job. The physics major has broken his golf swing to a science. With all the available swing analyzers, DeChambeau wanted to make the game easier. Most advanced golfers are aware that each club is swung differently, due to the different lengths. What Bryson DeChambeau has done is take out the different […]

  • Here at Fairway Golf, we have tested the latest and greatest golf products many times. There are very few instances when a new demo impresses us, but the Vertical Groove Driver blew us away. Now before you stop reading this blog, hear me out and try not to think of John Daly. 🙂 When I first saw the Vertical Groove Driver (the VGD), I immediately thought, “Wow, just another cheap start-up trying to show that being different is cool.” I mean, vertical grooves on a driver? I imagined the grooves grabbing the ball even harder and promoting a slice or […]

  • When was the last time you saw someone using a 2-iron? Probably a long time ago. Many pros always direct amateurs toward hybrids due to the forgiveness and high launch they produce. However, for the last couple months I have come across some single digit golfers that use 2-irons instead of hybrids. When asking them why, they replied saying that the 2-iron is easier to hit than a hybrid. This really confused me until I hit their 2-iron. I noticed that the 2-iron was a lot easier to hit than my hybrid because of how convenient the club looked at […]
