When I think of prestigious brands in the golf industry the legendary company from Himeji, Japan is one of the first that comes to mind. It’s roots date back to 1957 when legendary craftsman Katsuhiro Miura first started to handcraft his elegant “works of art”. It’s been said that his works have been created from the “Hands of God” himself. Mr. Miura’s two sons (Shinei and Yoshitaka) continue to evolve Miura Golf. Mr. Miura to this day can still be seen at his bench hand-grinding his creations.
In 2018, Miura Golf introduced Miura Giken to North American golfers with irons like the Passing Point 9005 Genesis irons (PP 9005) and the MG Collection CB 2008 irons to name a couple. Also released in 2018 Miura Golf also released the likes of the MC-501, IC-601 irons.
A new calendar year means new product releases for Miura Golf. Being introduced for 2019 are the new CB-301 irons. The CB-301 irons feature a cavity back design which offers golfer’s the feel of a player’s iron and the forgiveness of a Game-Improvement (GI) iron. The profile is “Tour-inspired” yet is geared towards golfers of all skill levels.
Miura Golf will be present at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day when it convenes on Tuesday January, 22nd at the Orange County National Golf Resort and Lodge. I will be putting swings on with these irons so stay tuned right here for my first impressions.
Thanks go out to Isaac Benjamin of PRCG Haggerty for sharing the press release. for more information on this exciting release from Miura Golf please see the press release below.
