This new Miura documentary is must-watch stuff for equipment junkies

Published

on

Last week, we told you a Miura documentary was on the horizon. Today, it’s here.

The mysterious Japanese company’s wares have had a cult following in the golf equipment space since company founder, Katsuhiro Miura, began forging and hand-grinding clubs in 1957. The three-chapter documentary short begins by looking into company history, building techniques, and Miura’s reputation globally.

“Within Japan, the name Miura, specifically the name of our founder, Katsuhiro Miura, it is a legend,” says Shinei Miura.

Such is the bold, and entirely appropriate, start to Discovering Perfection: The Miura Story, and it only gets more interesting from there.

Just 10 minutes in length, this short documentary is well worth your time. Check it out!

    Howard Milstein is a usurous snake. First Nicklaus and now Miura selling out to snakes. Keep your money away.

    That is some great marketing material.

    I can speak to the tolerances. That is a real thing; they are dead on. Every. Single. Time.

    Just make sure you understand what you’re getting. Pure strikes do feel great. Like all blades, misses are punished. In the right hands, they really are nice. It’s one set of irons that will cure you of WRXism.

    I have a set of Miura MC-102 Cavity backs which I got as pulls. I used them consistently for at least five years. They had almost no wear on them after the five years I used them (and still have them). This is amazing. I think the extra stamping does make the metal denser and as a result stronger. They are not soft clubs though. Lets say they are solid without being clicky. The specs are absolutely spot on which is a testament to their quality. They hit solidly, as I said, and I think the better you are the better you play. Not to say they don’t play well period. People in the know always want to hit them and are never disappointed. I put good recoil shafts in them (I am getting older) and can’t wait to play them when we complete our move to Florida in less than a week.

    Liked the story but the “background Music” is really foreground music and excessively loud. One would think today’s audio experts could do better. I want to hear voices, not drowned by music.

      i felt the same way…
      the production value is horrendous, this video could have been so much cooler in the hands of right filmmakers.

    Ahhhh…. the Miura mojo built into each iron head…. but not the hosel which is a cheap steel pipe that is spin-welded to the forged clubhead body. Of course additional forge stamping will create a denser metallurgy that will create a superior performing iron… ya think? 😛

The 7 best #GolfWRX photos on Instagram today (10.11.18)

Published

on

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.

WATCH: Is this the craziest hole-in-one you’ve ever seen?

Published

on

Golfers often say that getting a hole-in-one is all luck. (Keep in mind that Tiger Woods, arguably one of the most skilled iron players ever, says he has 19 holes-in-one… so maybe not all luck.) But certainly there are some holes-in-one that are “luckier” than others.

And then there’s this shot by Eddie Pepperell at the 2018 British Masters…

Definitely a great shot, and he absolutely took dead aim, but how this golf ball found the bottom of the cup is mind-blowing. It seemed to bounce off the ground, go up the flagstick, hit the ground, then side hop itself right into the basket. Wow.

But is it crazier than the bank shot?

That one is hard to top.

Or how about the all-time classic Bugs-Bunny-assisted hole-in-one by Michael Jordan in Space Jam?

Looney Tunes aside, here’s what Pepperell had to say about his hole-in-one.

He may not have seen what happened at the time, but he’ll see it on highlight reels for years to come.
