Miura Golf, often regarded as one of, if not the, best forging houses in the world has released their latest wedge, named Tour Wedge. It usually isn’t a big deal when they release a club, but this time it’s different. Much different. Miura forges all their iron offerings in Himeji, Japan and has been doing so for 30+ years. They have never strayed away from what has made them famous. Until now.
Every iron that has been forged with the Miura or Miura Giken logo on it has had forged grooves but the Tour Wedge has CNC grooves AND face. Tell we’re a bit excited? The material is still S25C carbon steel and has a similar headshape as other previous releases.
The other thing that should be noted is how there are a lack of markings. For the traditionalist, this will definitely be a selling point. Not so much for the golfer who wants their clubs to scream their identity. The lofts available are from 48° to 60° in two degree increments.
For the JDM diehard, this release is big. It marks the new era of clubhead building and design from the brand. We don’t know if this is being pushed by the new ownership group or not, but in any case we like it and hope to see more of it.
We don’t know the pricing yet, but expect it to be in the $200 range, not including shaft and grip.
