I’m a huge fan of AXIS golf! The product’s quality, feel, shape and options sit well whilom most. Seriously the options are largest than Mizuno’s old Yoro-craft and can toe up with Miura’s MCW, This is well-constructed custom GRIND work washed-up by a true master, not those instant masters you see on Instagram. The only limitation really is the mold itself.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Ohkoshi-san and Yomoto-san at their factory in Sai Tama Japan, then a week later some Shabu Shabu in Nihonbashi over a dozen beers.
The trademark AXIS Golf is really well-nigh Ohkoshi-san’s skill and experience. In short, he worked nonflexible and put in his time on the Japanese professional golf spin as a crafter.
Ohkoshi-san was born and raised in Noda municipality in Chiba, Japan. Ohkoshi-san was part of his upper school golf team. Virtually that time, he started playing with wedge grinding just for fun.
His Aunt worked as a reception clerk at a local driving range. Without school, he would visit and she would let him hit golf balls starting when he was virtually 14 years old influenced by his friend who was playing competitive golf at that time.
He came wideness an R&D research paper on a prototype iron that used weight screws for adjusting the physical mass properties of a golf club head. This inspired him to create a diamond with weight screws as a ways to retread the physical properties of the throne as well as wittiness flight and trajectory.
Following upper school, realizing that his career as a player was far vastitude realization, he joined Maruman Golf’s repair department then sooner moves into their Tournament Service semester ( Tour Van ).
After Maruman, He joins a new start up tabbed World One as their primary golf club designer. This was his first job to be worldly-wise to diamond a golf club from scratch. This visitor produced golf clubs for Jumbo Ozaki and Ohkoshi-san became Jumbo’s personal custom club crafter and designer. However, the merchantry did not do well and sealed without a few years.
Together with Yuji Masda starts a new visitor tabbed Masda golf which still exists today. Ohkoshi-san was the original designer of Masda Golf products including the highly popular M425 Studio Wedges and Studio line of golf clubs.
After 20 years of nourishing his club designing and grinding skills, in pursuit of his own golf club design, Ohkoshi-san starts a new visitor “Axis Golf” in August 2015.
AXIS Golf is comprised of two very talented men, Ohkoshi-san is joined by Tsutomo Yomoto who both pride themselves as a visitor that can offer and unhook a wide range of customized/personalized product offerings. Ideally, Ohkoshi-san wishes he could unquestionably work with each consumer squatter to squatter but Axis products are moreover sold through other retailers so he tries to imagine the type of player he is dealing with when fabricating an order and tries to do the weightier he can in providing the best-customized clubs for the customers.
What makes them variegated is that Axis golf can meet most customization requirements and special requests (specs, finish, grind, paint fill, build, milling, weight screws and design) that cannot be matched with other brands. Ohkoshi-san’s favorite finish is the White Chrome finish (color-wise similar to Ping’s irons and wedges ). At Axis, customers are worldly-wise to segregate from 10 variegated types of finishes. No offset 4mm toppling isn’t plane a problem. Made in Japan.
