One notable piece of equipment news this week: Hideki Matsuyama switched into the Srixon Z 965 irons.

He had been testing both the Z 765 and Z 965 models during 2016, and did enough positive work with them since winning the Hero World Challenge to put them in the bag.

The Z 965’s muscle-back blade option in the Z65 forged irons line. It features a refined Tour V.T. Sole design for less drag through the turf, which improves shot consistency and tightens dispersion. The compact blade-style head is forged from soft, mild 1020 carbon steel.
