Miura Golf teases Jack Nicklaus collaboration

Published

on

What do you get when you cross Jack Nicklaus—the greatest golfer of all time—with Miura—the most idolized forging company in golf?

Well, we’re not exactly sure—beyond the fact that we have been leaked pictures of a unique forged blade that is a collaboration between the two parties. From what we can see, it’s certainly going to be a very special set of irons.

At GolfWRX, we like to go deeper, and take you behind the curtain of where designs and ideas come from and although we don’t have any specific details of what makes this Miura X Nicklaus blade unique, we have other recent examples of Miura collaborating with companies both in the open and behind the scenes to bring very cool designs to market.

The most recent is the Miura LinkSoul Color Theory Set that consisted of 4 clubs in the lofts of 25, 32, 40, and 49 degrees – we originally covered these irons here: Long live the Half SetIt is one of the first openly recognized collaboration Miura had ever done with another brand.

As for the newly teased iron, it would seem that a collaboration between Nicklaus and Miura would almost be inevitable since both brands are held under the 8AM Golf umbrella, which also has Golf Magazine and True Spec golf, among others, but what makes this different is it’s not about brands—it’s about the best working with the best to create something completely new.

Miura is highly regarded as the premier forging company in golf and Nicklaus is a golfer known for his keen eye and specific attention to detail.

The relationship goes back much further than 8AM Golf, because well before Miura and Nicklaus were under the same umbrella, Jack has been spotted using Miura irons dating back to the mid 2010s.

For the time being, there is going to be a lot of speculation on what the design details of this Miura X Nicklaus iron will mean for both Katsuhiro Miura, the founder of Miura Golf, and Jack Nicklaus—two of the most respected men in their fields.

Without a doubt, this is going to be a highly sought after set of clubs when they are announced, and we will bring you more details as we have them.

    I hope that J.N. doesn’t charge an obscene fee and does it for the iconic “art” or at least donates any proceeds.

    (I am on my 3rd and final set of Miura’s…the Senior set. )

    If they would drop the autograph and just have the golden bear logo that would be sweet.

    I won a set of MacGregor Muirfields at a member-guest in ’84. Even had them regripped with Neumann leather because, well, Jack.

    Couldn’t hit them worth a damn and 6 months later, went back to my Ping Eye2s.

    You lost me after the first sentence. But cool, another blade that looks like a ton of other blades!

    “What do you get when you cross Jack Nicklaus—the greatest golfer of all time—with Miura—the most idolized forging company in golf?”

    A set of irons 99% of Golf WRX readers can’t hit. But not to hear them tell it.

    These look great. As a Miura and Nicklaus fan – this is an automatic buy. Can’t wait!!

    They look just like their standard MB offerings with Nicklaus’ name and logo stamped on them…

      i’d say with a twist of Mac Muirfields in there too – pretty sweet

        They look very similar to the late-’80s MacGregor Jack Nicklaus Muirfield 20 irons in fact, except for what looks to be a shorter hosel. They even seem to have Jack’s preferred sole grind, mostly flat with very little camber.

    They better be at least $2,000+ or I won’t even think about them.

    If they play as good as they look, they will be a huge success.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3-woods for a high handicapper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been looking at 3-woods for high handicap players. WRXer ‘Metro07’ is very much a Cobra guy but is open to other suggestions, saying:

“I am 53 and not a long hitter so I obviously don’t have a fast or even moderate swing speed. I got back into golf 5 or 6 months ago after being out for many years and was never really that good back then, I still haven’t broken 100 on a real course. I’m hitting my 4 iron about 175 carry.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Nichex524: “I’d focus on either a 4 or 5 wood honestly… and as far as forgiving goes, most Ping models will probably be helpful enough as far back as the G20 even. Make things as easy as possible, especially if you’re not looking for distance.”
  • ThwFlyingWasp: “I know you’re a Cobra guy, but I swear the Ping G410 SFT is the easiest fairway wood I’ve ever hit off the deck… it’s not the longest out there (by far), but it’s point & shoot easy & great off the tee as well if you tee it down… plus lofts are a little higher than normal to help the ball in the air… 16* 3 wood & 19* 5 wood… it’s like cheating… it’s so good… seriously lol… try them.”
  • Striker Ace: “I highly recommend the Callaway Big Bertha B21 5 wood, IMO it is so easy to hit straight, especially with the amount of offset that this thing has. I use it as my driver also, but it is also easy to hit from the deck. Give it a try!”
