Legendary Japanese club maker uses PGALegendary Japanese club maker uses PGA Tour inspiration for new wedge design Tour inspiration for new wedge design

Scottsdale, AZ. May 14, 2019. – Today, premium club manufacturer Miura Golf revealed the newest addition to its equipment lineup: the Milled Tour Wedge High Bounce (HB). Delivering the soft feel golfers covet, the new wedge is a striking example of Miura’s dedication to producing the finest equipment in the industry.

The new tour-inspired head shape confidently aligns the golfer allowing for pinpoint accuracy. Using premium soft carbon steel, the Tour Wedge HB boasts a wider sole that tapers from toe to heel, allowing for a more effective bounce along the middle of the sole. The added C Grind (heel and toe relief) and camber (front to back relief) increase playability and forgiveness.

Miura’s new PGA Tour Ambassador Abraham Ancer added the new wedge to his bag ahead of its official release, and he will be gaming it at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black this weekend.

“We have had a high demand for this wedge for a long time,” said Miura Golf CFO Lawrence Place. “The Miura family has produced an exceptional wedge that meets our customers’ expectations.”

Utilizing its renowned forging process in Himeji, Japan, Miura, an 8AM Golf brand, produced a grain structure within the head that is the tightest in the industry. The new high bounce wedge does not pursue distance like other clubs, but rather the precision and control necessary for scoring.

“We’re extremely excited to expand upon the success of our Tour Wedge product line with the introduction of Tour Wedge High Bounce (HB),” said Miura Executive Vice President, Jason Rutkowski. “The new design elements should appeal to more golfers, specifically those that have a steeper angle of attack on wedges.”

The head design of the Tour Wedge HB will match with any of Miura’s iron models. Lofts are available in 50°-62° in 2-degree increments to configure the perfect set. Golfers can purchase the Milled Tour Wedge HB and all other Miura products at authorized club fitters around the globe or by visiting www.Miuragolf.com.

Golfers who appreciate the finest handmade clubs can purchase irons directly from the storied, family-run club maker.

 

Scottsdale, Arizona (December 4, 2018) – Legendary club maker Miura Golf announced that it now offers fully assembled premium golf clubs directly to golfers from its website, miuragolf.com. Miura’s groundbreaking new e-commerce platform, launched over Thanksgiving weekend, allows golfers to pair Miura’s highest quality forged steel club heads with matching shafts and grips from some of the game’s top manufacturers for a custom built set of clubs.

This is the first time in its illustrious history that Miura has sold fully assembled golf clubs directly to consumers.

Through an intuitive custom design interface on the Miura website, golfers can build an entire set of eight to ten handcrafted driving irons, irons, wedges and putters. Miura offers seven types of irons that can be custom designed for dexterity, flexibility and feel. The new website offers the golfer guided access to the masterful artistry and technique behind the Miura experience. Precise adjustments to the loft, lie, weight, and design of a set of Miura clubs creates a seamless transition from long to middle to short irons, which has long been a trademark of the storied brand.

“We are committed to introducing more golfers to the pure pleasure of hitting a Miura club that has been handcrafted to engineered perfection,” said Miura Golf President Hoyt McGarity. “With this new feature, it has never been easier to treat your game to the finest constructed clubs the world has to offer straight from the source at miuragolf.com.”

The easy-to-use new interface guides golfers through every step of customization: Miura club heads come in three distinct finishes and can be matched with seven loft options, 18 different shafts and 14 grips to produce a set of clubs that is truly fully customized. Customers can also acquire custom-designed individual clubs from the MC-501, IC-601, Tour Wedge and Wedge Series lines, as well as Passing Point Neo hybrids and KM-007 and KM-009 putters. Golfers can also visit miuragolf.com to purchase Miura bags, shirts, hats, travel gear and accessories.

This announcement is the manufacturer’s latest move to bring the legendary feel and meticulous craftsmanship of the Miura family’s proprietary design process to golfers at every level of skill. It follows the launch of the IC-601 series in June, whose inner cavity design offers more forgiveness and a larger sweet spot for mid-range handicaps.

“To experience Miura firsthand, we’re thrilled to offer more accessibility to our products,” says Jason Rutkoski, executive vice president of Miura Golf. “As we’ve continued to grow our dealer network and build our brand, we recognized that access to an authorized retailer isn’t always as convenient as we would like it to be for our customers. Now golfers can either visit one of our worldwide dealers or shop directly at miuragolf.com.”

Since its inception, Miura has traditionally only offered its individually made forged steel club heads to select boutique dealers, who then assemble the clubs and sell to the public. Miura has worldwide distribution of its club heads at club fitting studios on five continents. A list of authorized club fitters can be found on miuragolf.com.
