RSince not everyone has the time to consume every single piece of content on club opening days, we’re doing something different and offering a new version of our in-depth technical articles that hits the highlights. Here’s what you need to know about Mizuno’s latest ST-G driver and titanium fairway woods.
We continue to push the boundaries
Many people forget that Mizuno was the first OEM to produce a driver with an adjustable sliding weight rail, and although it has gone through a number of iterations, it is back with the 2024 ST-G, which helps adjust the ball flight and dial to adapt. in spin.
The sliding weight rail isn’t the only adjustable technology, as both the fairway woods and driver are also equipped with Mizuno’s quick-switch hosel.
A face for speed
You need to hit the ball with something, and to help the ST-G driver’s face deliver more energy over a larger area, Mizuno engineers use a beta-rich Ti-LFS material. This titanium alloy offers 9 percent higher tensile strength compared to SAT2041, which gave designers the opportunity to further advance the face’s multi-thickness geometry.
According to Mizuno, tour testing showed an average increase in ball speed of 1.5 mph compared to using the SAT2041 material.
Behind the face and on the sole is now the Cortech chamber, which houses a stainless steel weight surrounded by an elastomeric TPU. This filed slot relieves pressure on the club’s face and thus ensures more flexibility. At the same time, more mass is positioned near the face to reduce spin and produce a powerful sound at impact.
Ultimate driving machine
It wasn’t that long ago that there wasn’t a single Mizuno driver on the PGA Tour, but having committed to pushing the boundaries of driver performance and working with its tour staff, Mizuno is producing drivers , who compete and often win wherever it counts most – in a suitable bay and at the highest level of golf.
There is no better example of this than Keith Mitchell, who led the PGA Tour’s overall driving stats* (combination of distance and accuracy) for most of the 2022-23 season using an ST-X 230 driver. (*He takes 2nd place at the Fortinet Championship.)

The player preferred the 440cc pear shape with a deep face to allow for more weight to improve spin characteristics.
Fairway woods for pure low spin
With the ST-G Titanium fairway woods, Mizuno has pulled out all the stops to deliver the most powerful and extremely spin-friendly fairway wood they have ever had by combining titanium, steel and their new Cortech chamber in one club.
The racket features an internal thin waffle design from top to bottom at the crown to save valuable grams, and the titanium body and face allow a high-density steel weight to be placed on the sole to shift the center of gravity even lower.
This means the ST-G Titanium fairway woods offer a flatter and more penetrating flight from both the tee and the fairway.
More options than ever before
The Mizuno brass has heard the cries of consumers and when it comes to the new ST-G driver and fairway woods, they offer them for both right- and left-handed players, with the driver available in right-handed variants 9, 5 and 10.5 degrees is available on the left in 9.5 degrees. The Mizuno ST-G Titanium fairway woods are available in 3- and 5-wood right-handed versions, with the 3-wood also available as a left-handed version.
