Vancouver, British Columbia/Himeji, Japan-
Japanese golf-club manufacturer Miura Golf-which has been making the world’s highest-quality forged irons for 44 years-is officially introducing its Passing Point 9003 forged cavity-back irons, the company announced today.
The Passing Point concept is Miura’s recognition of golfers’ lifelong
steps to improvement. While there is a passing point when you pass from
acquaintance to friend, from novice to serious student, from casual
golfer to committed competitor, golf clubs can also have a passing
point. When clubs are taken to a new level, they become more than just
14 tools in a bag. They become friends in their own right.
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 doesn’t look
oversized. Likewise, 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 just the right amount
of weight to the most effective places in the head. The thoroughly
researched and tested PP-9003 design places the center of gravity low
for a high, soft-landing flight that still holds its line and never
balloons. And as with all Miura clubs, the weight and balance are
obsessively consistent throughout the set.
The worldwide introduction of the Passing Point 9003 or (PP-9003) irons
is set for April 1. The launch is exciting news for golfers, as Miura
Golf-which has never had a fixed time frame for new-product
introductions-only debuts new models when the quality of new
technological advances demands it.
The PP-9003 is available in a 4-iron through pitching wedge set (plus
gap wedge) in right-hand only. The PP-9003 can be tested by visiting
www.miuragolf.com to locate the closest Miura dealer. Pricing begins at
$225 per iron.
PASSING POINT 9003 (PP-9003) FORGED CAVITY-BACK
is a family company, and the development of this club brought out the
best in two generations of Miura expertise. Company founder and chairman
Katsuhiro Miura worked with his sons, Yoshitaka and Shinei, to make a
“friendly” golf club. Together, they created a club of surpassing
utility, ease of play and, yes, friendliness. The PP-9003-with its wider
sole, higher launch angle and perfect amount of offset-is designed for
all levels of players, but seniors, women and high-handicappers will
particularly benefit from the iron’s performance characteristics.
The friendly PP-9003 irons are easier to address with confidence; they
promote well-balanced ball trajectory in terms of distance, direction
and height; and there’s no variance in shape, weight or balance between
each club in the set, which provides golfers with confidence.
“The PP-9003 irons are not only aesthetically pleasing, but the
incredible technology will help golfers of all handicap levels get the
most out of their games,” says Adam Barr, president of Miura Golf. “We
are confident golfers will fall in love with the PP-9003 irons,
especially after they see their games improve.”
Positioned as a stepping stone to the Miura clubs intended for better
players, Passing Point is Miura’s way of reaching out to all golfers.
Anyone who plays the game deserves a great forged club-and Passing Point
is the newest place to begin that eternal journey towards golf
“Mr. Miura, Yoshitaka and Shinei have created another superb addition to
the Miura club line with the Passing Point 9003 irons,” says Bill
Holowaty, Executive VP – Product Strategies for Miura Golf in North
America. “The PP-9003 irons feature timeless Miura styling and peerless
Miura performance, and if you think the visual impact is strong, wait
until you hit it.”
