Miura introduces K-Grind 2.0 milled wedge, featuring signature knuckled sole of the 1957 model

Published

on

Miura Golf has today unveiled its latest wedge — the K Grind 2.0, which is designed with the original 1957 K-Grind in mind.

The new K-Grind 2.0 features the signature knuckled sole of the 1957 model. The fluted sole of the new wedge is designed to keep the clubface square at impact, while the three knuckles of the K-Grind 2.0 also aim to deliver increased playability through every type of turf.

The face of the K-Grind 2.0, as well as the grooves, are fully milled in a bid to increase spin on both intermediate and full shots. The club’s sole grind features increased bounce and roll, along with heel and toe relief, which is designed to stabilize the swing of golfers of all skill levels.

Speaking on the new addition, Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf, said

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

The hand-forged K-Grind 2.0 comes available in 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degree lofts. The club, which possesses a lie angle of 64 degrees, arrives in a choice of 19 branded shaft options and 14 grips.

The K-Grind 2.0 is available to purchase now from MiuraGolf.com as well as Miura Golf authorized dealers around the globe, with prices starting at $295.

    They say the knuckles help keep the head square. Considering that with foward shaft lean the trailing edge does absolutely nothing on square settup shots, this is totally BS. When opening the face it could help with reducing the surface area that interacts and produce a low bounce reaction. Probably not something you want in a sand club but probably great for a LW. I wouldn’t trust a 1957 idea on grind and bounce considering the way courses we’re kept at the time and the lack of equipment companies knowledge on grind/bounce options. Vokey only in the last few years starting offering multiple grinds due to their knowledge and tour player feedback. We used to grind our own because we as players knew what did what and created what the equipment manufacturers wouldn’t and couldn’t

    What happens when you open the club all the way, do the notches get you stuck

      Not at all. They are tremendous wedges. I have 52, 56, 60 & 64. I’m sure they will occasionally put out a very small number of 64’s. Small numbers like 18 one year and 24 in another year. Not for everyone but well worth looking at and maybe trying. Works of art.

      Looks like you made basically the same comment on the “hottest drivers” post. It’s okay for you to repeat thoughtless responses but not okay for equipment companies to improve on proven successful ideas? Might want to take the log out of your own eye before talking about the speck in someone else’s.

        USGA rules make it IMPOSSIBLE to produce clubs with meaningful performance improvement….are you completely uneducated, or do you work for a golf equipment manufacturer selling snake oil technology stories?

          You’re stupid if you think that moving CG doesn’t affect a club, try hitting a srixon 965 vs a 71 MT forged iron. CG is lower in the other and is easier to launch and mass in different places equals more forgiveness in those areas.

          Maybe stop being stuck in 1965, and learn to adapt with the world.

Bettinardi Golf signs two-time European Tour winner Sam Horsfield

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today announced the signing of two-time European Tour champion Sam Horsfield.

For 2020, Horsfield will continue using his BBZero putter and will become the first-ever player to have a Bettinardi staff bag on Tour.

The BBZero flat-stick has served Horsfield well, with the Englishman finishing 8th in putts per GIR last season on the European Tour. Speaking on joining Bettinardi’s tour staff, the 24-year-old said

“I want to be the best golfer I can be, and feeling comfortable in my equipment is crucial in achieving this. Bettinardi brings me the confidence in their innovation and attention to detail that I am looking for, especially when it comes to putting and how important feel is.

Being affiliated with them for so long, it’s really special for me to be officially a Tour staffer now.”

Horsfield used the company’s DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel) BBZero Tour Dept. putter for both of his Euro Tour wins in 2020, and will now join a growing tour staff which includes Jason Kokrak, Matt Kuchar, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Fred Couples.

 

The Englishman’s history with Bettinardi goes back to when he was 10-years-old when he contacted Robert Bettinardi while visiting the PGA Show in Orlando where he picked up a Bettinardi putter to start his golf career.

Speaking on making Horsfield the newest addition to its tour staff, founder Robert Bettinardi said

“I’m very excited to have Sam Horsfield join our tour staff. It all comes full circle for us after meeting him and his father when he was 10, to keeping in touch with my son Sam and myself all these years, through college and, now, winning on the European Tour twice on his way to becoming a star. We believe Sam will do big things and win a Major trusting a Bettinardi putter like he has for over a decade.”

To find out the story of Sam Horsfield and his journey with Bettinardi Golf, check out the video below.

KBS testing new TD “Tour Driven” Prototype graphite shafts on tour

Published

on

Golf equipment news was coming in just as fast as birdies last week at The American Express, and one of the most recent releases to tour players was an all-new TD Prototype shaft from KBS—makers of the extremely popular lines of KBS steel shafts.

We don’t have the full technical details of the new shafts, and KBS is without comment, but it looks like the company will be sticking to its numbered flex categorization with these prototypes all being labeled as “Category 5,” which is considered the “X” flex shafts.

Unlike some other graphite shafts, these TD prototypes aren’t giving us any clues about technology or materials—beyond the small label at the bottom of the graphics that states “Tour Only”—so it is likely that these are just prototypes of a new profile or potentially a balance point.

We will continue to follow up as more details become available, but for more info on the current line of TD “Tour Driven” graphite shafts from KBS check out our piece from their launch: KBS TD Driver shaft spotlight
