Luke Donald extends Mizuno equipment deal
January 21, 2010

Luke Donald has extended his long standing equipment relationship by signing a new multi-year agreement with Japanese manufacturer Mizuno. The contract is Donald’s third with Mizuno, allowing him to play his prime competitive years with the same brand he has used since his amateur days.

After a successful recovery from a wrist injury last season, Donald evaluated all aspects of his game and made some changes, including bringing in a new caddy, having previously worked exclusively with his brother Christian.

However, these changes did not extend to his equipment, and Donald will continue to play Mizuno MP-62 irons, MP T-10 Series wedges and a Mizuno CLK hybrid, all carried in a blue and white Mizuno Staff Bag. Donald will also wear his trademark Mizuno visor as part of the agreement.

“We are extremely excited to have extended our relationship with Luke Donald,” said Akito Mizuno, President, Mizuno Corporation. “He has been a tremendous ambassador for the Mizuno brand, both on and off the course, as he always displays class and a great respect for the game. We look forward to his continued success in 2010, and beyond.”

Donald’s world ranking recovered steadily in 2009 with a 2nd place in the Heritage Classic, and a strong performance in the Dunhill Links Championships. His career successes include the Honda Classic, Southern Farm Bureau Classic, Omega European Masters and Scandinavian Masters, as well as lifting the trophy at the World Cup and the Target World Challenge. Donald has also played an integral role in European Ryder Cup Teams, with an impressive overall record of 5 wins - 1 loss - 1 half.

“I’m entering a very critical phase of my career, so I’m delighted to have Mizuno’s continued backing.” commented Luke Donald. “Precise iron play is probably my biggest attribute and Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forgings make the most of that strength. Mizuno also has some great developments in the pipeline – I think they can get the most from my game in the long term.”
