The year of the little guy can mizuno make a dent with the 2019 st190 driver ways to make money without money

Mizuno hasn’t ever – at least not in recent memory – been a powerhouse in the driver category. If you’re ranking by dollar share, it sits a comfortable 9th, though its perhaps worth a mention that its average selling ways to make money without money prices are considerably higher than some of the brands listed ways to make money without money ahead of it. That’s good for its bottom line, but if it wants to be seen as a serious ways to make money without money player in the category, like other challenger brands, mizuno has plenty of work to do.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that 2019 has the potential to ways to make money without money be the year of the little guy – and that means mizuno has a shot to increase market ways to make money without money share. Now, I haven’t lost my mind (at least not completely). I’m not saying that by june mizuno and wilson will ways to make money without money be battling for the title of the #1 driver in golf (taylormade owns that trademark), but there is at least the potential for smaller brands ways to make money without money to get some play on tour, build some excitement, and maybe even find their way into more of your ways to make money without money golf bags.

Small case in point, callaway won the driver count at last week’s mayakoba classic while PING did the same at the ways to make money without money PGA tour champions charles schwab cup. And while those aren’t exactly textbook examples of smaller brands shocking the world, it does suggest that taylormade’s death grip on the weekly driver count is sliding, and other brands (maybe even small brands) could start finding their way into tour player bags at ways to make money without money a higher rate than at any time since pay to ways to make money without money play became the reality. That kind of thing usually trickles down to the consumer.

What does that mean for mizuno? It means there’s a sliver of light shining through a door that ways to make money without money was previously bolted shut. There are no gimmes here, however. Three brands (taylormade, callaway, and PING) currently account for more than 80% of the drivers sold at retail. Add titleist and cobra and it we’re at 90%. 5 brands, 90% of the market. It’s not like we anticipate much of a sway in ways to make money without money that top 90%, so that leaves mizuno and everybody else fighting for the ways to make money without money lion’s share of the last 10%.

Wilson has driver vs. Driver buzz, tour edge has taken ownership of the $300 price point, srixon is building a following, and mizuno, for the first time I can remember, looks to have a pair of drivers with appeal that ways to make money without money extends beyond the mizuno loyalist. Given whispers of a push on mizuno’s part, it could be the one that makes the biggest inroads ways to make money without money on tour (admittedly we’re not starting much above zero). There’s at least an outside chance that a name you ways to make money without money know will put a mizuno ST180 driver in the bag. If that happens, it just might increase mizuno’s retail fortunes.

I’m always watching out for what mizuno does. I invested a couple of years ago in upgrading to ways to make money without money JPX 900 forged irons (which I feel like were made for me) and I play the JPX 900 driver. I recognize it isn’t the longest, most publicly precious driver on the market, but I found way better tuning of the head to ways to make money without money me w/ an older fubuki Z vs the stock speeder, and it gets me into the 275-300 yd range where I want to be.

I think the opportunity for “the other guys” to open up market share lies in finding the right ways to make money without money blend of quality and price. I’ve spent a lot of time commenting on this for ways to make money without money months now… there has absolutely been cost escalation in the equipment market, no matter what the justification is, that is putting off the casual golfer from the game, and these are the guys that need to be interested ways to make money without money if they want to maintain or even grow the sport. Your mid-level and higher caliber player is in it for keeps ways to make money without money at this point, so we’ll grumble about prices, but continue to find ways to update and play, but when it’s starting to cost $2,000 to get mass market-edge irons and a driver before I’ve filled (or bought) the bag or bought a dozen balls, that’s a hard sell for someone who may never return ways to make money without money to a course after a few tries.

1.] I have been a card carrying mizuno fan boy in ways to make money without money the past when I played both their irons and their ways to make money without money driver. The mizuno drivers I bagged weren’t the longest, but they always felt A-mazing, and workability was a gimmee. If they could replicate that feel, and workability, and keep me within single digits of the cally or ways to make money without money taylormade distance monster that comes out which will neither feel ways to make money without money as good nor be as workable, I could easily bag another zuno.

3.] I currently bag 3 tour edge hybrids and have played ways to make money without money many of their fairways and hybrids in the past. I loved the XCG series. But–as with wilson staff I’ve never bagged a tour edge driver. If the EXS, which bears more than just a cursory resemblance to the ways to make money without money zuno 180, can replicate that zuno feel and workability, and keep me within single digits of the big boys–at $299—-it’s a freakin’ layup. -especially since I contacted the company and they reassured me ways to make money without money that the CK RED was a free upgrade on this ways to make money without money $299 driver. That is currently my shaft, and it has certainly rejuvenated my old 2016 M2 driver, which is still the best product taylormade has put out ways to make money without money in years. The 2nd gen M1 and M2 weren’t really upgrades, and the M3 and M4 suck.
