Bring Improvement To Every Movement

(Miami, FL, January 21, 2019) — Callaway® Apparel announces the launch of SWING TECH™ – technology that fuses athletic performance with classic fit and game-changing innovation. Re-engineered construction and materials provide noticeably less restriction and more stretch to maximize your range of motion on every swing.

“What makes SWING TECH so revolutionary? A total redefinition of what performance golf apparel should be. We explored seam construction and materials that we used in our products with the goal of limiting restriction throughout the swing,” stated Lupe Benitez, Vice President of Design for Callaway Apparel. “With the incorporation of SWING TECH, we are now able to provide significantly less restriction and more stretch to maximize range of motion on every swing. As a result, we’ve created a game changing innovation to authentic golf apparel that will help golfers look, feel and perform their best from top to bottom.”

SWING TECH™ is featured in a variety of products in the 2019 Callaway line including:

POLOS

Golfers can count on greater flexibility through the shoulders through a combination of a all-new seam construction and pliable blended materials. Taking a new approach on seam construction, our polos have taken the performance attributes of an athletic raglan sleeve and restructured it so that golfers still get the authentic golf styling that they know and love. Featured SWING TECH polos include the all-new SWING TECH gingham polo, SWING TECH jacquard polo and SWING TECH fine line color block polo.

SHORTS

The SWING TECH ergo shorts feature the all-new ergo seam and refined active waistband to provide more freedom of movement from the waist down. With the ergo seam, we have eliminated the need for side seams that limit flexibility where you need it most, giving you greater stretch and lighter feel.

Brand new in 2019, the all-new SWING TECH Cooling+ 1/4 zip pullover provides golfers with the performance of SWING TECH construction as well as ​cutting edge fabric that promotes rapid moisture wicking and superior sun protection.

Miura Golf Launches New CB-301 Line of Cavity Back Irons

Miura Golf.

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.
