And the winner of best booth this year goes to ONOFF! Thats just my opinion of course Callaway was bigger but gaudy and neon green. Actually Daiwa the parent company of ONOFF had 3 booths this year as they now own Fourteen golf and there was also GIII which is their higher end stuff for the older player.
We also got to pay a visit to our old friend and former employee Tario Cham who was working the Onoff booth for the golf show. Always great to see him and learn about the new products from someone who knows his stuff. Follow the jump for more photos!

Something special for everyone today, the Mizuno Japan only MP-15 forged irons. In the states Mizuno went with the MP-25 and I have no idea why as these MP-15's pack more tech and have a better shape. The head size is roughly the same as the MP-59 irons but they made the cavity deeper lowering the cg depth and added weight that expands across a large portion of the head heel to toe. We have a ton of great pics to show you after the jump...
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!

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.
