Mizuno irons branded number one by Tour golfers

11.00am 7th December 2000 - Corporate

A survey carried out by Sports Marketing Surveys has revealed that Mizuno has retained the No.1 iron on Tour status for 2000 on the European Tour. The Company beat off strong competition from its rivals Callaway, Titleist, Ping and Taylor Made to win the cumulative total for the year.

Mizuno also achieved No.1 in cuts made and No. 2 in money won. Other highlights of the year included being No.1 iron at The Open and the winning driver at The US Masters.

Many believe that Mizuno forged irons give a level of feel, control and precision that is unrivalled by any other manufacturer. It is this level of quality, says the Company, that encourages more professionals to play Mizuno irons on both the US and European Tours than any other brand.

For the seventh consecutive season Mizuno also took the honour of being No.1 iron on the US Tour. The title was clinched at the South Western Farm Classic when Mizuno had 31 sets of irons in play.

“The honour of being chosen as the PGA Tour’s favourite iron is a justification of our decision to forge our irons,” said Andy Kikidas, product manager at Mizuno. “The professionals know that our forgings give a feel and consistency that cast irons cannot rival.”
