Tour pro Choi buys off-the-rack clubs

In a day and age where a set of custom clubs can be fitted to a player's specification overnight, it was surprising to learn that eight-time PGA Tour winner KJ Choi has purchased a set of off-the-rack irons.

The 43-year-old South Korean decided to take a detour on his way to The Memorial Tournament on Monday to visit Golf Galaxy in Dublin, Ohio, before handing over some dollar for a set of mizuno mp-64 irons for sale he'd been practising with on the range.

Choi, known as one of the most frequent equipment tinkerers on the PGA Tour, took it to an all-new level.

No equipment trucks are allowed on the hallowe'd turf of Jack Nicklaus' Muirfield Village this week so Choi decided to test four different sets of irons at the retail store's range before typing in his four-digit pin number.

“He tried a few different Mizuno irons, the mizuno mp-59 irons for sale, Mizuno MP-69 Irons for sale and MP-64s,” said Doug Fleischmann, customer assistant at Golf Galaxy. “He also tried the titleist ap2 712 irons for sale.”

According to Fleishmann, Choi went into a hitting bay at the store and hit each club about five to 10 times. Choi had store employees check the swing weights and lies on the clubs, and commented that all of the irons with the exception of the MP-64s had swing weights that felt inconsistent.

When the swing weights were measured, Fleischmann said the other clubs had swing weights that ranged from D2 to D4, while all of the swing weights of the golf clubs for sale MP-64s were D2, so he plumped for them, paid up and headed for the tournament!
