Our Mizuno JPX919 irons fitting took place at Bearwood Lakes – home of the brand’s new tour fitting suite.

The state-of-the-art bay has been installed at the Berkshire club for all of Mizuno’s staff players like Eddie Pepperell and the European Tour’s ‘Mr 59’ Oli Fisher to use.

Mizuno’s tour truck will also be based at Bearwood when not away on European Tour duty.

We’ve already done our initial reviews of the Mizuno JPX919 irons but wanted to go through the full fitting process to see what my custom-fitted set would look like.

Would I go into the Tour, Forged or Hot Metal? Or a combination of two or maybe even three models.

And, because we like to share the love, we’ve got a full set of Mizuno JPX919 irons to giveaway for one lucky reader.


Mizuno JPX919 irons fitting: The methodology

I was fitted into the JPX900 Hot Metal irons a couple of years ago so was really interested to see what would happen with the JPX919.

There’s not much ego when it comes to my golf clubs. I’m always happy to go with whatever a fitter tells me is working best.

And on this occasion, I was being fitted by Alex Thorne, Mizuno’s tour operations manager.

He’s used to dialling in the world’s best so I apologetically took my 15-handicap ball-striking with me, hoping not to force him into early retirement.

What’s good about a Mizuno JPX919 irons fitting the fact you get to use their Swing DNA software.

It involves a special gadget attached to a graphite shaft and picks up a range of data about your swing.

It then suggests three shaft options to use as a starting point.
