Mizuno is increasingly focusing its efforts on tour towards emerging and untapped talent – a trait Murray is known to have in abundance. Murray won the IMG Junior World Titles in 2006, 2007, and 2008. Murray was the second youngest player on the Korn Ferry Tour to make it through the cut at 16 years old. He then played in the 2013 U.S. Open Merion as a teenager. Murrays last PGA Tour triumph was six years old.
Mizuno’s tour focus is to support talented players make the hardest step – into the elite level of the game. Ben Griffin and Marco Penge made that move in 2023. It’s really special to see Grayson work his way back there and into the top 50 for the first time – so soon into 2024. We say that Mizuno equipment is ‘Tour Ready’ in that we supply the same heads to retail and the tour. So players outside of the elite tours can put a set of Mizuno’s into play, knowing that its the same quality we supply Luke Donald and our workshops. It’s good for players and ensures Mizuno has a steady stream of talented players.
