Introducing the all new Honma Beres S-05 Series scheduled for a January release, TSG is proud to announce we are now accepting pre-orders for these and would warn that for the first quarter of 2016 these will be in high demand with limited availability. ( Click Here )
In contrast to the TOUR WORLD line of clubs designed for the stronger and better player the S-05 Beres series was created for the golfer seeking pure enjoyment combined with improved performance helping the average player lower their scores. In order to accommodate that Honma analyzed tens of thousands of swings and trajectory tendencies based on fitting data cultivated over time at the Sakata factory in Japan and yes these clubs are Made in Japan.
Follow the Jump for the official information, descriptions, and specs on the new S-05 Woods and IS-05 Irons...
By Yuji Numazawa, One product the Armsgain Model-01 Putter a design now touted in Japan for being one of the most well balanced in the golf industry, In 1985 Yuji Numazawa met Gene Sarazen and Carsten Solheim who both after speaking with him recommended he create the perfect putter, back then he was working for Honma Golf and that year he retired from the company to pursue his own dreams.
Numazawa-san travelled to the United States to connect with the aura that American golf had surrounding it and after returning to Japan a year later joined Bridgestone sports in 1987. A total of 30 years experience for top manufactures working with tour pro's and amateur players, then a long period of silence as he lost motivation in 2008.
Shortly after Numazawa was casually asked to design a putter for one of Japan's rising players from that moment on his passion and enthusiasm was re re ignited to its strongest level ever, shortly after coincidentally Mercedes-Benz reached out to Numazawa-san to produce a limited edition putter with an "inseparable relationship of beauty and function" It was released in limited numbers ( 200pcs ) and sold close to $3,000 usd, all pieces sold in under 1 month.
Numazawa-san considered the fact that 40% of the score comes from a players skills on the green and that the putter was truly the most important club to master in the bag and along with skill the player needed a tool an extension of their vision of the ball rolling into the cup.

Finally available again the Modart CBC Irons, these have been out of stock for months with customers waiting patiently ( thank you! ) Now I'm happy to inform everyone that these are now shipping with custom builds available from TSG.
For those who are not familiar with Modart here is a bit of back story: Modart was created by Suda-san all the clubs offered by Modart are made completely in Japan featuring a full line up of woods and irons and wedges and putters. Suda-san having spent more than 10 years in the golf industry had long had a dream of making his own brand. He spent years honing his grinding and club design skills at Fourteen Golf where under the guidance of Grind Studio master and former top Fourteen grinder Masahiro Tomaru. When Tomaru-san left, Suda-san became the top grinder and focused on grinding Fourteen wedges for top Japanese pros on tour. Besides grinding for tour pros, Suda-san was also in charge of up and coming releases which include the very popular MT-28 V5 wedge in his portfolio.

Introducing the new Limtied Edition L01 Shaft by Seven Dreamers, It is the companies very first limited series hence it's name L01. It's special due to it's new carbon textile material and more attractive and complicated to produce weave, the result is a better feeling "more smooth" sensation yet without any widening of dispersion or a higher launch.
Seven Dreamers considers the L01 the ultimate shaft solution derived from their enormous fitting and design data based on the Seven Dreamers Fitting Bank, 7D has also allowed customers to select one of their 24 BEST shaft designs without a fitting or question form... BUT TSG is taking the L01 to the next level by highly suggesting you fill out the 16 question form anyway for Seven Dreamers to double check providing you with the absolute best fit possible.
So you choose your model, fill out the form, Seven Dreamers will say if they think your selected design is a good choice and if it's not sometimes they slightly tweak the design or choose a different one for you. All bases covered :) or you can simply opt out of the question form and have the model you want shipped in about 4 weeks to you as shaft only or assembled by TSG's top club maker.

Time for another beautiful set of Yoro Craft Irons this time it's the new MP-5's fully tricked out with custom grinds, finish and stamping.
We asked the team Mizuno's Yoro Craft Dept to add a W Grind to the sole which is one of the most and versatile grinds for the better players anywhere, the toe was hand ground sharper and the top line straighter for a more angular and edgy appearance, the offset was reduced , finish changed to double nickel satin, markings on hosel removed and custom stamping and text deletion so no where on this head does it actually say MP-5 on it. Like it? Tons of pics after the Jump....
Years back Kamui Works was one of our best selling drivers, they make fully custom woods by hand in Japan which is not something many or any brands really do, this has allowed us to cater to golfers who need extreme specs like 5* open face angles, custom black IP's soles, ultra heavy or light head weights and adjustments of bias and CG locations internally, I mean what brand does this?
I wanted to make something a little flashy and unique while also fitting the needs of a request we get quite often, that is the need for a driving wood off the tee box that can also handle fairway's like a fairway wood. The end result is a jaw dropper a 210g head with 12.5* loft and a 1* open face angle, black IP sole with Ferrari yellow paint.. yum!
I'm not hitting this one, it's really just to remind our members what Kamui can do with drivers and fairway woods. For those who want to Jump at this we have only 2pcs ready made and able to ship in a day or two so get in touch with [email protected] if you want to avoid the wait or you want a custom order to spec a unique driving wood for yourself. Lexus Blue or Ferrari Red anyone?
Crazy Toyoshima 2016 Wedge - Isn't she lovely? The standard finish is satin while this one is TSG Club Works modified. We receive the heads from Crazy then send it to a Japanese copper factory where they are dipped, then several weeks later we get them back and soak them in a chemical agent to apply its outer most dark layer for a beautiful smooth finish that we have dubbed "Smoked Copper"
We have been perfecting our smoked copper finish, this is the latest iteration it's different from before as its smoother visually in its darker areas and applied more evenly. Kaizen as they say, always improving. Enough about the mod job it recieved as these wedges are some of the best and those who know anything about Toyoshima-san's wedges or have ever owned a Crazy Wedge can automatically assume these will play just as good if not better than previous versions. Follow the Jump we have 2 more finishes to show you and photos from all angles...
Mitsubishi OT Shafts have been highly suggested by TSG since release because they feel great, are very user friendly producing easy launching and accurate results and they are somewhat reasonably priced for a top performing carbon shaft.
Mitsubishi has just announced 2 new weights, the i75 and i105, this gets me excited as I'm a big fan of the i95 I was waiting for something a bit heavier and I think 105 is really optimal for a lot of players.
Also a new light weight KuroKage XM is coming early next year geared to players who want a lighter weight shaft perhaps due to a smoother tempo and transition which will ultimately aid those players in gaining more distance, we always say use the lightest shaft that you can control with the accuracy you want and considering these are coming in X flex Mitsubishi is covering all it's bases. More info to come closer to release and at the 2016 Japan Golf Fair.
