After a first outing at Japan’s ZOZO Championship, Mizuno’s upcoming ST200 driver line up was back out for testing at last week's RSM Classic at Sea Island GC.

Three new drivers – the ST200G, ST200 and ST200X all made an appearance.

Mizuno’s Luke Donald, Keith Mitchell and Chris Kirk took their drivers out for further course testing – alongside Mizuno’s technicians.  Mitchell, Schenk and Glover had all hit the new drivers at the ZOZO Championships alongside Mizuno’s stable of Japanese players at the back end of October.

The returning Chris Kirk had an ST200X out for testing.

The first drivers in play were reported to be Erika Hara on the Japanese ladies tour (ST200X) and a non-contracted player (ST200) at Sea Island.

The Mizuno ST200, Mizuno ST200G and Mizuno ST200X drivers are expected to be available to the public by February 2020.

Last month's ZOZO Championship gave Mizuno’s Japan based R&D team a rare opportunity to complete further ST200 driver testing with its US contracted players.

As a result of testing, Mizuno fast tracked its upcoming metalwoods onto the USGA confirming lists.

"The ZOZO Championship proved to be a really valuable event for Mizuno – with all our key people at one place at one time," said Mizuno's PGA Tour manager Jeff Cook.

"Mizuno is the one Japanese club manufacturer that’s completely relevant in the west – so it’s the one time we get to have home advantage.
