Perfect Mizuno Clubs
Now that it’s cooler, reenergize your golf game with a new set of clubs. The unique fitting system at the Mizuno Experience Center at The Battery analyzes your “Swing DNA” to identify the perfect shaft for you. The pros at Mizuno will watch as you use a modified 6-iron with a sensor on the shaft that you swing and hit balls as you would with a normal club. Headspeed, tempo, kick angle and release factor are measured during the fitting that takes about an hour. Mizuno Experience Center, 770.675.6590. MizunoUSA.com
