The Tour World Honma 445 Driver – There are 4 drivers in the new 737 driver line up the 445, 450 455 and 460 from smallest to largest. The most obvious differences are that each head has different cg locations, individual head designs and face structures. Today we are talking about their low handicap pro level driver the 445.
The new TW737 445 is designed to for reduced spin, workability and to avoid the left side allowing the hard hitter to go after it. The cg is high and the face not as deep as most tour clubs which allowed them to add extra forgiveness but expanding it’s outer diameter. Lots of photos and information after the jump…
The New 2017 Ryoma Fairway Woods -Do not compare these to your normal fairway woods; the usual FW is generally in stainless steel with a maraging face. Not even close the new Ryoma F has an ultra thin body that contracts then expands during impact for more rebound, the entire body is lighter and thinner allowing Ryoma to add a 125g weight internally. 65g in the rear they call power booster and 60g up front for power spring.
Combined with Ryoma’s exclusive face material across the board players are gaining a 4.47mph average increase in initial ball velocity which equals about 15 yards when compared to other traditionally designed fairway woods. Follow the Jump for more photos…
Last week on our instagram and facebook pages TSG Club Works revealed a set of custom Epon P3’s. Today we have another 4-PW this time in white satin which is a new golf specific finish developed at the refinishing factory. This iron set also has a custom leading edge grind. The White Satin is a matte finish whiter than traditional satin yet there is no glare.
Last weeks set sold in less than a day from listing in the TSG ProShop I have also included those photos after the jump…
Titleist Vokey Forged Wedge 2017 – There are many of you waiting for the news, March 17th Titleist will release the new 2017 model forged vokey wedges. These are not your normal wedge and it’s obvious Titleist is really stepping things up. Bob Vokey designed these and upgraded the technology within the head to meet the needs of tour players in Japan. There are three center of gravity designs that depend on the loft you choose. The major difference is the CG locations vary between models. Low CG is offered in 48* thru 52* / Mid CG from 54* thru 56* and High CG 56* to 60*.
Usually you see solid 1 piece designed wedges but Titleist is going all out on with a progressive CG design using multi materials while the club looks solid with a blade like back face. The body is soft forged while the face is titanium. There is also nickel and tungsten used for the weighting. Titleist Japan is using the TX4 groove with parallel milling in between each groove. They have also killed the leading edge to help the steeper swinger although these work perfect for sliders as well. The method of manufacturing is called Forged (Co-Forged) and I am not sure what this means yet but will find out.
Available in Satin or Black PVD with lofts 48/50/52/54/56/58/60 with DG S200, NS950, Modus 120, Zelos8 and a new carbon Diamana VF shaft. Like the new 718 T-MB these wedge have increased in price as well retailing just under 300 bucks each with steel shafts. Enjoy the spec sheet below and these are already in the TSG Pro Shop for Pre-Order. First batches go quick!
If you’ve been around TSG during the last year or two you may know what SEVEN is. SEVEN is my personal brand my endeavor to create something better and different. It’s actually pretty easy to make something better but it’s also expensive and in order to come out on top you must be willing to pay more to have more. I start with a sketch in my iPad Pro it’s shape is influenced by the work of the many great putter makers, I close my eyes and imagine the experience I want focusing on looks then feel.
I choose Japanese SM490A as the metal, this is a material I favored for over a decade after noticing it not as hard as sus303 yet not as mushy as carbon steel. Face milling plays a big role in how a putter feels how much metal touches the face at impact has a major effect on vibration. Some milling can make a harder metal feel softer and vice versa. For carbon which I find too soft I prefer a different type of face mill than on stainless and in this case using SM490A which was already soft but not mushy it allowed me to focus on roll.

It’s the MB-5005 with a custom Y-Grind and hairline finish. Only 150 sets were produced and they are all that wonderful Miura shape, feel and quality that so many have grown to love. With all the recent press about Miura’s globals majority share being purchased and with all the fan boys & naysayers speculating the brands future I wanted to get everyone back to what matters most… Their awesome clubs!
After the jump we will share how these are different from the standard 5005 and what is so special about the Y-GRIND. Click to Read On…

This is a custom set of Honma Tour World TW737P Irons – TSG is now offering these to our clients via email order and in the TSG ProShop. The “P” model is the most forgiving in the TourWorld line up It is the only cast iron of the TW737 series. Honma has been a leader in golf specific castings for decades and is implementing a new soft iron casting manufacturing method.
Honma has also thinned out the top line yet still managed to keep the CG low. The face itself is a hot hybrid steel material for improved distance. Behind the impact zone Honma has strengthend and thickened the area for a softer more mild impact. The TW737P is the most forgiving of the TW series, then one step more forgiving is the BeZeal line up followed by the Beres models for seniors, smoother, and female golfers. Follow the Jump for some more beautiful photos…
Hello Beautiful… MP-66 Yoro Craft Irons and TSG has thrown the kitchen sink into these. Where to start? The MP-66’s are Mizuno’s newest iron, it’s Japan Only and Mizunos new flagship players CB. It’s small, soft, and forgiving. Much more forgiving than it’s predecessor.
Our customers absolutely love the MP-5, MP-55 and MP-66. The feedback has been outstanding in feel and forgiveness across all three of those models. When you add over the top options to these sets it takes them from great to amazing depending on your specific needs. We got some great pics to drool at after the jump…
Honma Golf’s new TW737 series is incredible. TSG will be showing you the full line up starting off with what could be the Best Blade to hit the market in a while. Honma already had the TW727M blade which was a small, narrow and workable choice so a blade that offered more forgiveness and larger dimensions was great next move.
The new TW-BM in comparison with the 727M has a taller and wider face. Professional JPGA star Hideto Tanihara asked Honma to enlarge the head of the TW717M to try an MB that was forgiving. Instead of simply enlarging the size of the head they completely redesigned the blade from the ground up using CAD to optimize the CG so that this club maintains control and great feeling at impact with a larger sweet spot.
