Miura announces mid-size cavity back CB-302 forged irons

Published

on

Miura Golf today announced the new CB-302 iron, which is inspired by Shinei Miura’s vision to enable golfers of all skill levels to experience the benefits of a penetrating ball flight. To achieve this, Miura’s craftsmen challenged the limits of their forging process to develop a cavity-shaped iron with optimized weight distribution unique to each iron’s loft.

The CB-302 features the largest sole width of any forged iron ever produced at the Miura factory, offering optimal forgiveness for golfers of all levels.

The S20C soft carbon steel iron is designed to provide confidence at address, ensuring that the size, shape, and overall appearance of the clubhead work together seamlessly to deliver more control and performance.

“The CB-302 is a testament to the perseverance and skills of the Miura Craftsmen. Their attention to detail has enabled them to deliver an iron which balances forgiveness and performance at the highest level,” said Bill Holowaty, COO, Miura Golf. “This is an iron which will be enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels, including golf’s most advanced players.”

During the design phase, craftsmen paid attention to every detail, ensuring that no area of the clubhead was neglected, including the heel where the hosel meets the head. The Y grind sole with its unique camber, or curve of the sole, from the leading to the trailing edge of the clubhead, is a critical design element of the CB-302, according to Miura, in an effort to deliver improved performance regardless of a golfer’s swing trajectory.

The CB-302 irons will be available in 4-GW. $350/head.

    $350/head?! $2,450 for a 7-club set? That’s a joke.

Spotted: Nelly Korda’s TaylorMade P7CB irons

Published

on

We have seen some prototype TaylorMade cavity back irons floating around professional tours recently. The irons were just labeled “Proto” on the back. Rory McIlroy had the 4-iron in the bag, while Michael Block had an entire set in play at the PGA Championship.

We all speculated what the iron was and what the name might eventually be upon release, and now we know. It looks like TaylorMade is going with “P7CB,” since we spotted Nelly Korda testing clubs that bear that name this week.

We have heard players like Rory speak about the irons and how they are seeing a little better ball speed and controlled spin on mishits. A softer and more consistently solid feel has also been mentioned as an improvement with these new irons.

We still don’t know all the details yet as TaylorMade isn’t ready to give those up, but hopefully, we will learn more soon about these forged cavity back irons.

WITB Time Machine: Bubba Watson’s winning WITB, 2018 Travelers Championship

Published

on

Bubba Watson captured his third victory at the Travelers Championship in 2018, erasing a six-stroke deficit with a final-round, 7-under 63 to top a quartet of golfers at 14 under par.

“I feel like this is my home course,” Watson said. “As soon as they put the schedule up, I sign up for this. I want to come back here. This means so much, not only from the golf side of it, but from the family side. My dad, it was the only time he got to see me win (in 2010). He got to see me qualify for the Ryder Cup at this event.
