Mizuno announces debut of new player's teardrop MP-T4 wedge

NORCROSS, Ga. -- Mizuno, the industry leader in wedge development and innovation, unveiled their latest 'player's' teardrop wedge, the MP-T4. Designed with specific insight from the world's best wedge player, Luke Donald, Mizuno has created one of the most versatile, high-spin wedges on the market. Featuring Mizuno's patented Grain Flow Forging process and 1025E "Pure Select" mild carbon steel, the MP-T4 wedges provide players with a superior soft, solid and consistent feel.

Mizuno's MP-T4 wedges were specifically engineered for maximum playability and turf interaction, evident by the clubs' new sole design which provides more toe and heel relief. The MP-T4 wedges also feature a CNC milled face along with Mizuno's exclusive QUAD CUT GROOVE technology, which enables the precise control of the width, depth, draft angle and shoulder radius of each groove to deliver maximum spin control and ball stopping ability in all playing conditions. Combined with a True Temperâ„¢ DG Spinnerâ„¢ shaft for enhanced spin and controlled trajectory, the MP-T4 wedges deliver increased spin and a lower launch at impact with an average of 250+ RPM as compared to Dynamic Gold. The MP-T4 wedges are available in two exotic finishes - White Satin and Black Nickel.

"Nobody knows how a wedge should perform better than Luke Donald, and he was instrumental in the design of this wedge," said Dick Lyons, Vice President and General Manager of the Golf Division, Mizuno USA. "With Luke's help we have designed the MP-T4 to optimize every facet of wedge play. From feel to spin to shot versatility, no wedge can do more for your short game than the MP-T4."

For the first time ever, Mizuno will offer golfers the opportunity to personalize their MP-T4 and MP-R12 wedges with up to six characters, letters and/or numbers, in 12 different colors. Mizuno will make this available to consumers at no additional cost and will deliver the customized wedges in just two weeks once an order is placed.
