2018 Mizuno Irons

This year's new Mizuno golf clubs consists of 3 different types of Irons. Those are MP-18 SC, MP-18 MMC, and MP-18 MMC FLI - HI which are all great clubs. The MP-18 SC is often described as the most accurate Iron because it was intentionally created for a more solid impact yet at the same time lets the ball flight more consistent. On the other hand, the MP-18 MMC is much more of an exotic type of Iron. Its high density allows for players to get a softer impact. Whereas the MP-18 MMC FLI-HI is considered the most powerful Iron. The club has an extremely strong steel that allows for a thin, hot face for higher initial ball speed and overall distance. The slightly heavier weight provides a high and easy launch for golfers. Overall all these three different types of Iron are great and is designed for different players strengths! 

Chicago Golf Scene - Not the Same

A whole lot has and is happening in the Chicago area golf scene.

First, Golfsmith closed all its stores and almost all the independents have closed as well. Klees Golf Shop on the south side and Ace Pro Shop on the northwest side are the last golf shops standing in 2017, seven years after the Great Recession ended.

Interestingly, Klees Golf Shop was the only pro shop on the south side still in business seven years after the Great Depression ended in 1946. Sheer determination, sacrifice and outside income made that possible then and today.

Second, the verbal rumblings about merging South Shore Golf Course and Jackson Park Golf Course may actually become machinery rumbling by the end of this year, along with the construction of the President Obama Library.  This is no easy task and there will be lots of people watching to make sure Jackson Park, a Frederick Law Olmsted creation, is not materially altered as a result.
