What we say...

Mizuno drivers had a breakthrough year in 2019. The ST190 drivers were fast, powerful and low spin, and when Keith Mitchell won the Honda Classic with one in March, it gave Mizuno its first PGA Tour (driver) win in 19 years (the last was Vijay Singh’s at the 2000 Masters).

That’s big news, especially for a brand that traditionally focuses on forged irons.

Naturally, Mizuno are looking to build on that success for 2020, so their US and Japanese design teams have collaborated on an updated ST200 family.

There are three drivers in the line-up (ST200, ST200G and ST200X) and early signs are very positive that tour players will adopt them. Uncontracted pros have already been testing the new models, which would have been unheard of a few years ago.

All three have 17% stronger SAT Beta titanium faces which Mizuno say prevents CT creep (where the face becomes more flexible – and potentially illegal – over time). Here's who each is aimed at.

The ST200 combines low spin with considerable forgiveness. According to Mizuno, this model is for golfers who are after a high stability driver, but also seeking to target spin to increase distance.

A 12g backweight gives a balance between spin control and forgiveness and new sound engineering tunes acoustics.

Mizuno say the ST200G has been built for high swing speed efficiency, which means it performs well in the hands of hard hitters. 14g of sliding sole weight can dial in spin rates from mid to ultra-low, which isn’t a claim found in many drivers.

Traditionally, Mizuno haven’t had a specific driver to cater for mid to lower swing speeds, but the X is that model for 2020. It comes with built-in high launch and a good degree of draw bias. The X has its own wider head shape (adding forgiveness), with additional heel weight and an upright lie angle to encourage a high draw ball flight.
