Miura unveils forged cavity-backs
Japanese golf-club manufacturer Miura Golf has introduced its Passing Point 9003 forged cavity-back irons. In the Miura tradition of melding functional golf design with an artistic eye, Miura crafted a wider sole to help with effective turf interaction. Yet the sole takes an elegant shape that is designed to keep it from looking oversized.
The offset is designed to flow naturally into the clubhead to preserve a confident look at address, but still benefit players who need some help squaring the clubface at impact. The cavity has been carefully designed to assign the correct amount of weight to the most effective places in the head. The PP-9003 design places the center of gravity low for a high, soft-landing flight that still holds its line and doesn't balloon.
The worldwide introduction of the Passing Point 9003 (PP-9003) irons was April 1. Miura says the PP-9003 is designed for all levels of players, but seniors, women and high-handicappers will particularly benefit from the iron's performance characteristics. They are positioned as a stepping stone to the Miura clubs intended for better players. The PP-9003 is available in a 4-iron through pitching wedge set (plus gap wedge) in right-hand only.
