With his inspired finish, Ancer ensured he will become the first Mexican player to represent the International Team in the Presidents Cup this December 

 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. August 13, 2019 — Miura Golf is pleased to congratulate brand ambassador Abraham Ancer on his hard-earned runner-up finish at this past weekend’s Northern Trust. With a deep field that included 122 of the top 125 ranked players in the world, the determined and reliable Ancer finished strong by making birdie on two of his last three holes. His stirring performance vaulted Ancer from 67th to 8th in the FedEx Cup standings.

The strong showing at The Northern Trust allows Ancer to secure a spot on the 2019 Presidents Cup international squad, while also enabling the rising young star to join the field this week at the BMW Championship. He will also be a part of the 30-man TOUR Championship next week in Atlanta and has qualified for next year’s Masters, where he’ll make his debut.

Ancer has been playing Miura irons since 2017 and became the company’s first brand ambassador in February 2019. As the most prominent Mexican national on tour, his involvement in growing the game in his home country includes a partnership with Dead Solid Perfect (DSP) Golf Mexico, the official distributor of Miura Golf in Mexico.

Over the course of the four days at The Northern Trust, Ancer relied on Miura prototype forged irons built specifically for him to finish an impressive -15.

“When Abraham joined the Miura team, we knew we were partnering with a really special player who approaches the game with the same respect and an understated class our brand embodies, and who was also on the cusp of breaking out,” said Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf. “Happily, judging by his recent achievements, he has far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to more great things in the weeks and months to come.”

Ancer’s rise to prominence on the PGA Tour has been impressive. When Nike stopped manufacturing equipment and Ancer elected to start playing Miura irons without a sponsorship in place, he was ranked 606th in the Official World Golf Ranking; today Ancer has climbed to 39th in the world.

The 2019 Presidents Cup will be held in Australia in December — coincidentally, in the country where Ancer won his most recent professional tournament, the 2018 Emirates Australian Open.

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.

Craftsmanship, elegance, sophisticated. All of these are among some of the adjectives that one would use when describing golf clubs from Miura Golf.

Out of all of the products that I’ve tested and reviewed in the past Miura has been premium. Always known for their “buttery” feel and good aesthetically appealing looks they could be what golf fanatics could easily describe as “golf porn”.  When I reviewed and tested the Miura Golf K-Grind a couple of years ago I said then that it was the most beautiful golf club that I’ve ever seen. That observation remains unchanged. Until today.

Miura Golf just announced the next iteration of the K-Grind wedge. The K-Grind 2.0 wedge offers the same fluted, “knuckled” sole as the previous model (1957 K-Grind). The one major difference is that the face is fully milled and has been incorporated into the design which is paramount to adding spin to your shots where you need it most. Greenside.

Until The Next Tee!!

Timeless craftsmanship merges with modern techniques to produce the next generation of the handcrafted K-Grind milled wedge from Miura

 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 7, 2019 — Miura Golf today introduced the latest addition to its growing product line by giving one of its most iconic clubs a modern upgrade. Following in the footsteps of the original 1957 K-Grind wedge, the new K-Grind 2.0 features the signature knuckled sole of the 1957 model, but adds cutting-edge milling techniques for an unrivaled combination of functionality and feel.

Given the proven staying-power of the K-Grind, the Miura family craftsmen sought to maintain the integrity of the original design by preserving the fluted sole that enables the clubface to remain square at impact. The three knuckles deliver increased playability through every type of turf. The K-Grind 2.0 sole grind features increased bounce and roll along with heel and toe relief designed to stabilize golfers’ swings of all skill levels.

Club Face Now Fully Milled

The other significant evolution of the line is evident on the clubface of the wedge. To keep in line with the modern style of play, the face and grooves of the K-Grind 2.0 have been fully milled to provide increased spin on intermediate and full shots.

The K-Grind 2.0 is hand-forged in Himeji, Japan, using Miura’s time-honored 14-step manufacturing process. It is offered in five lofts, from 52° to 60°.

“The K-Grind 2.0 is the next generation of the trusted and distinctive product line that performs dependably through every turf,” said Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf. “With this club, we have produced a superior wedge that is just as versatile as it is visually striking.”

The K-Grind 2.0 is available at Miura Golf authorized dealers around the globe or at www.miuragolf.com. On the manufacturer’s website, customers can also design a custom K-Grind 2.0 with a choice of 19 branded shaft options and 14 diverse grips.
