New S5 wedge provides sophisticated, yet bold look that will step up your short game

Norcross, Georgia – (September 22, 2015) – Mizuno, a global leader in golf technology and innovation, took its wedge game to another level in design and aesthetics with the launch of its new, S5 Wedge. Catching the nickname “Blue Magic” for the bold, Blue Ion finish option, the S5 Wedge finds the perfect balance of performance benefits to create the ultimate wedge for golfers of any skill level.

Featuring Mizuno’s patented Grain Flow Forging process, the S5 Wedge offers an aggressive performance design that golfers can appreciate, yet still provides the clean look at address stemming from a new “silhouette” head shape, which the wedge is aptly named. Incorporating the Grain Flow Forged 1025 mild carbon steel allowed Mizuno to develop a solid, soft and consistent feeling wedge that player’s crave.

“The new S5 wedge line was developed with feedback from Luke Donald,” said Jeff Cook, Director of Tour Operations, Mizuno USA. “Moreover, it was awesome to see Luke do something a little out of the ordinary and put the S5 Blue Ion Wedges right into his bag.”

Utilizing its proprietary Performance Fitting System (PFS) guided by the Shaft Optimizer, Mizuno created a fully customizable wedge program that will allow golfer’s to perform their best when it matters most – within 100 yards of the green. The S5 Wedge features a sole grind story where 15 percent of the center trailing edge is beveled on high-bounce options, and 25 percent is removed on low-bounce options for greater precision at each offering. Enabling precise control of the width, depth, draft angle and shoulder radius of each grove, the new wedge utilizes Mizuno’s exclusive QUAD CUT GROOVE technology to deliver maximum spin control and ball stopping ability in all playing conditions.

Mizuno reinforced the Mizuno blue brand color with the introduction of the Blue Ion finish on the S5 Wedge. In addition to the visual appeal, the wedge features 25 different loft and bounce combinations, which range from 49-to-62 degrees for both left and right-handed golfers. With 25 options, all available through the PFS System, Mizuno solidifies itself as the go-to company for players looking to buy state-of-the-art wedges.

The S5 wedges are available globally in two durable right-hand finishes – White Satin and Blue Ion. The left-hand S5 wedge is available in the White Satin only. More information on the new line of S5 Wedges and 2016 products is available at mizuno.com.
