The new S5 wedges first seen in Luke Donald’s bag early this year offer ultimate feel and are available in a stunning blue finish.

Grain flow forged for Mizuno’s trademark soft touch around distance control, the S5 offers an enticing midsize profile – with sharply visible sole grinds for imagination and creativity around the green.

Initially designed to be a slighter larger alternative to the more compact MP-T5 wedges, the S5 was sufficiently versatile enough for Luke Donald to hang onto after a filming session in April.

“These are more of a mid-size profile, so there’s a lot more clubface for fuller shots,” said Mizuno club engineer Chris Voshall.

“Less intimidating when you’re faced with a 95 yards off a less than perfect lie. They went into Luke Donald’s bag in April and were precise enough to stay in for St Andrews, which suggests we did a pretty good job with the sole grinds and versatility round the greens.”

A slightly rounded leading edge allows the wedge to be opened or closed – whilst still aligned to target.

Grain flow forging compresses and maintains a consistent grain through neck and hosel – ensuring consistency through every club head for predictable distances.

The mid-size profile is paired with sharply visible sole grinds recommended by Luke Donald – keeping the wedges versatile for an array of shots and lies.

The S5 is available in a Blue IP or White Satin finish. Blue IP is a stunning finish over the standard white satin that will wear without reducing the durability of the plating itself.
