Jordan Smith not only landed his maiden European Tour title at the European Open in Germany today, but he also bagged the first win for Mizuno's stunning new MP-18 irons that have yet to even be released to the general public. 

While we'll have further details of the new MP-18 irons for you shortly, the only thing you need to know right now is that they're pretty darn good. 

England's Smith was built a set of MP-18 irons just last week, so he won with them in play for the very first time. 




Smith, who is sponsored by TaylorMade, also relied on his TaylorMade M1 440cc driver in 9.5 degrees, which he recently revealed as his "favourite club in the bag."

"Driving is my strength and the two go hand in hand," said Smith. 

He also used 15 and 18-degree TaylorMade M2 Fairway Woods, as well as the Spider Tour Black putter. 

Smith led by two strokes heading into the final day but was forced into making a birdie up the 72nd hole from inside of 10 feet to force extra holes with defending champion Alex Levy.

With pars at the first extra, with Levy missing a short three-foot putt for the win, Smith sealed the deal with a gutsy up-and-down for birdie at the second extra hole.

"It's all a bit surreal," said Smith, who was ranked as high as 1,619th in the world this time two years ago, and now finds himself inside the world's top 90. 

"Obviously the Challenge Tour last year and the EuroPro the year before that. It's been fun.

"I had a really good start to the year and the first aim was just to secure my Tour card, which I managed to do.

"And then the second goal was to win an event, which I've managed to do."
