Abraham Ancer becomes Miura’s first PGA Tour ambassador

Published

on

Miura Golf has announced that Abraham Ancer will be the company’s first-ever PGA Tour ambassador ahead of this week’s WGC-Mexico Championship.

As a PGA Tour ambassador for the club manufacturer, Ancer, who has played Miura clubs since 2017, will work directly with the Miura family in Himeji, Japan to craft his custom-designed forged irons and will don a Miura hat at tour events.

Speaking on the announcement, Ancer said

“I switched to Miura irons well before any partnership; I just wanted to play the best forged irons available. I am honored to represent Miura and look forward to introducing Miura to the Mexican market.”

Ancer as well as club fitter Genaro Davila (who initially fit Ancer for Miura clubs two years ago) have also teamed up with entrepreneur Gerardo Benavides to form Dead Solid Perfect (DSP) Golf Mexico, which will become the official distributor of Miura Golf in Mexico.

Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf, shared his thoughts on the partnership, stating

“This is a first for Miura, and it was important to us that this partnership transcend the traditional sponsorship model. Abraham is the perfect partner to grow Miura’s presence on and off the course. As one of the most successful Mexican golfers ever, his personal investment in Miura is the strongest endorsement as we increase our operations in Mexico and other parts of the world.”

Ancer will tee it up for the first time since becoming Miura’s first PGA Tour Ambassador today at the WGC-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec. The 27-year-old will play alongside Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau in the opening round at 2.03 pm ET.

    Nothing feels like a Mizuno

      Well said. I have owned MB001’s in raw and hit another set once. Not impressed. Sure at one time they were a leader in feel. But forging process at a manufacture level has become mastered but all OEM’s. Only specialty builds Epon and Miura may do are funcky innovative CB designs.
      Mizzy hands down leads the market now in feel and performance in the retail market. That means mass produced which can lead to many flaws when pumping out tens of millions.
      This is always why Mizzy pulls from retail when building Pro sets. Thats how good their process is.

    Bubbert-

    “a bit limited”?

    Are any of the new Miura irons touted in a LH model?

    How about the “custom set” Ancer will be getting?

    Even better -Miura’s CB57 iron set made for Jack Nicklaus? Think Miura would make that LH model?

    The one article said LH golfers will be “waiting” for Miura.

    One can’t buy what Miura doesn’t make.

    Ralph isn’t alone.

      Stopped?
      In that case they begun making LH clubs again, but like many other OEMs the LH range/models are a bit limited.
      For example Miura currently offers 7 iron sets/models for RH, and 2 for LH.

      LH options have always been limited in the JDM market. Stop lying, Miura always had limited LH models.

    Hope he’s still using artisan wedges. Love seeing guys on tour use something that’s made in my home town.

PXG launches new 0317 ST blades

Published

on

PXG has released its new milled PXG 0317 ST blades.

“Our team has done their homework on these blades, taking feedback from our professional staff and college players to inform all aspects of the design. From clubhead size, offset, and sole design to a flighted trajectory.” – PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons shared. 

Each iron in the PXG 0317 ST set is triple forged from 8620 soft carbon steel in design to create a tight, strong grain structure that prolongs the grooves’ life and enhances the overall feel.

Then, the irons are CNC milled to ensure every surface, curve, and angle are produced to exact specifications. Finally, the blades undergo a precise robotic polishing process to refine the sole and other geometries for a flawless finish and excellent consistency club to club.

In addition to high-grade materials and precision manufacturing, PXG 0317 ST Blades are characterized by a unique, tour-inspired blended set design. Harder-to-hit 3- and 4-irons feature a cavity back that are designed to make it easier to hit the ball up in the air and increases forgiveness on mishits.

The remaining clubs in the set feature a solid-body design that aim to deliver a penetrating trajectory with high spin, exceptional consistency, and maximum control.

PXG 0317 ST blades also incorporate PXG’s Precision Weighting Technology to fine-tune performance further. The large tungsten weight on the back of the clubhead is used to optimize the swing weight/head weight target on the center-of-gravity location. Optimization can be experienced during an in-person golf club fitting and is dialed in as part of the custom build process. 

The blades are named after the 0317 U.S. Marine Corps Scout Sniper.

The new milled PXG 0317 ST Blades are available in a Chrome ($199 per club) or Xtreme Dark ($219 per club) finish and are available now at www.PXG.com.
