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.

GolfLogix wants you to “Play Smarter”. No, that doesn’t mean that the world leader in golf GPS technology wants you to carry around a protractor or compass. Besides that’s illegal right Bryson?

Founded in 1999, GolfLogix was the first company to introduce hand-held GPS technology to golfers. GolfLogix boasts not only to have been mapping courses since 1999 but also claims to have the largest most up to date courses in the world. Moreover, the millions of GolfLogix members worldwide have verified the courses (Hmmm… I wonder if they have my course and a few others in the area).

Did you know that GolfLogix has provided an app for smart phones since 2009? This coming off of the heels of having a developed software co-branded with Garmin. Of course, as we know Garmin is one of the leaders in GPS technology. Eventually everything culminated into having a 30 minute infomercial featuring the like of on-air golf commentators Gary McCord and Peter Kostis.

GolfLogix has been groundbreaking and innovative so what could the brain trust in Scottsdale, Arizona come up with next? Introducing “Putt Breaks”. What is Putt Breaks? Let’s take a look shall we? What do you get when you take the breakthrough of 3D mapping and combine that with the knowledge found in yardage books? Well, quite simply you get Putt Breaks. Please see the introductory video below.

 

Looking at the video one thing quickly comes to mind. It’s great knowing the contour of the green but if you don’t have the right line and speed… putts won’t drop. However, knowing where the contours are for your approach shots could be a real asset.

Summary of what Putt Breaks does…

• Read your putt in a matter of seconds with one-touch putt reading
• Navigate the course with vivid 3D maps that intelligently adjust
• Maps auto-orient based on the user’s position
• Zoom and pan to see the green map from every angle
• Draw a line from the ball to the cup, then see how your putt will break

Some pretty cool things listed in the summary in particular the auto-orientation capabilities of the app. GolfLogix is offering a free 30 Day Trial to give Putt Breaks a look-see. So, I will be taking it upon myself to test this app. Could it be time-consuming drawing a line? How about battery drain? Who knows? Either way it still beats a protractor and/or compass.

Here’s some food for thought. Urethane covered golf balls for less than $20 per dozen. A 3-piece Surlyn covered for less than $15 per dozen while a 2-piece Surlyn covered distance golf ball for less than $10 per dozen. That’s what Cut Golf offers golf consumers. Just because a golf ball has the stamping of a “giant” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the “magic bullet”. The proverbial saviour of your golf game.
