Hit it straight with new PTI Driver
KZG, a maker of custom clubs, says it has released its straightest hitting driver to date, the PTI (Performance through Innovation). The PTI Driver is designed for the mid-to-high handicap golfer and features two screw portals in the back of the head for customization. The driver was engineered with an extremely high moment of inertia concealed in an aerodynamically-designed 460cc traditional teardrop profile. The titanium cup face insert creates energy off the face for increased distance and a solid feel.
The two screw portals located on the sole of the PTI permit a variety of custom alterations for trajectory, swing weight and center of gravity. Additionally, the PTI Driver has an all-black finish and sophisticated sole design. Available in lofts of 9, 10.5, 12 and 14 degrees in righthanded models and 10.5 and 12 degrees in lefthanded models. The suggested retail price begins at $389 and varies depending on shaft selection.
KZG offers equipment available only in the selected retail facilities with authorized KZG professional clubfitters on staff. Visit www.kzg.com or call 1-800-200-8800.
New age wedge a real grinder
Japanese club manufacturer Miura Golf, which has been making forged irons for 44 years, has announced the K Grind wedge. The sole design of each wedge is grinded by hand for uncompromised short-game performance. The sole of the new K Grind wedge is "fluted," which bears a striking resemblance to finger-tip impressions, or even human knuckles. The idea behind these three channels is to reduce the resistance against the wedge in sand, thick rough, and even the fairway.The channels in the sole of the wedge are designed to move with the grass instead of against it, and move around the sand instead of colliding with it. It allows the wedge to accelerate through the ball with less effort in all conditions. Characteristics of the K Grind Wedge make it easier to hit good shots out of wet sand and deep rough, reduce the odds of catching it heavy on long bunker shots, and aid acceleration on half and quarter swings around the green. The wedge has a suggested retail price of $250. Miura Golf's corporate office is located in Vancouver, British Columbia and Miura clubs are sold at the custom-fitting shops throughout North America.
