Firstly to introduce myself as the new Technical Specialist on our European Tour Workshop. I look forward to keeping you up to date on all happenings on Tour.

This week's stop is the ISPS Handa Wales Open. Played over the Twenty Ten Course that witnessed a famous victory over the USA in the 2010 Ryder Cup.

Weather is a little different to that week in 2010 as I remember being up to the knees in mud!! Nice to be in short sleeves in the Welsh Valleys.

On the equipment front, after a just missing out on victory at Gleneagles, Ricardo Gonzalez continues to test a JPX EZ 3 wood and as of this week a 16 degree JPX EZ hybrid. Both fitted with Diamana D+ 72 X. Chris Wood returns to action after a fantastic spell in America, just a quick wedge check for Chris.

We welcome Asian Tour Staff Player Masanori Kobayashi who is playing this week on a sponsors invite. Masanori will also compete next week in the co-sanctioned Omega European Masters. Looking through his bag, its nice to get our hands some models we don't see in Europe such as the MP H4 Craft Driver. We wish him all the best and hope he makes his mark on the European Tour.  

The Workshop has a week off Next week as the tour arrives in Switzerland, In the mean time enjoy some pictures from Wales.

Think it's a pretty basic system Bill. Standard...open...closed. Not in the same league as the TM and Titleist for adjustability. I'm just waiting for TM to release a driver that has an in-built radio, makes a cup of coffee and boils an egg for you as well ;)

Initially I also thought it was very basic V, but the following quote on the web page makes it sound a little more.

'The JPX EZ is no ordinary adjustable driver - with the 'neutral' easily playable for amateurs. The Quick Switch mechanism offers 8 intuitive settings and a vast range of difference - no need for tour quality ball striking to see the variation in trajectory'

That would be great, then the Mrs would be totally redundant!

First time a JPX product has excited me! :-)

Deemac - we hit balls all through lunchtime with it a few weeks ago.  Most fun had on the driving range in a very long time.

Just a really, really good driver.

Predict that all the MP players here at Mizuno HQ will have this in the bag next year.

Well that's surprised me. I honestly thought it was a more basic system than that. I must say I love the colours and the graphics and it looks stupendous at address. I want one even more now :(
