HIMEJI, JAPAN – Miura Golf is now offering a new Y Grind option in its popular left handed models while also introducing a LH putter model for the first time.
“With our operations based in Canada, where recent statistics indicate that some 30 percent of new golfers are lefties, we’re always looking to better serve left-handers,” says Bill Holowaty, Executive Vice President, Product Strategies of Miura Golf. “We are thrilled to offer some more options for those golfers — first with our LH KM 006 putter in which Mr. Miura has delivered a LH Forged Putter that feels as good as it looks. Secondly, the Y Grind version of our LH Blade and Cavity Back models allows golfers to benefit from a refined leading edge and sole design that leads to better turf interaction and therefore produces more solid shots.”
Left Handed KM-006 Putter
This Miura “Series 1957” Classic design putter goes through the same forging process that KM 006 LH makes Miura irons so successful in ball-striking consistency and feel. The Miura craftsmanship has been transferred to this toe-weighted offset classic putter, with an oiled chrome finish that complements its soft visual features. While similar in design to our right-handed models, the left-handed version has subtle differences. A rolled top line and a tapered heel help to deliver a putter head which is both pleasing to the eye and easy to square to your putting line. As is the case with our other putters, the milled face is extremely forgiving and produces a strike which transmits to the feel, distance control and in achieving the truest of rolls from reduced skid.
Y Grind Irons
The impact that the design of leading edge and bounce can have on an iron’s performance has not been lost on the Miura family. Master Grinder Yoshitaka Miura has created the Y Grind, which made its debut with our Series 1957 Wedges. Yoshitaka has now incorporated the Y Grind into our most recent models, the MB 001 and the CB 57. Until now, this innovation was not available to our loyal left-handed golfers.
Cavity Back LH
Using the foundation of our timeless left-handed models, the Blade and Cavity Back Y Grind has allowed Miura Golf to deliver two additional offerings to lefties. The Y Grind, although most visible on the sole and leading edge, actually encompasses many more subtle changes to the clubhead, to maintain the integrity of the head, including head weight, density and overall balance. These refinements elevate the Left-Handed Y Grind irons to another level. More efficient turf interaction is made possible through the subtle leading edge and sole modifications. This includes a more contoured leading edge and the appropriate bounce angles on each specific iron while maintaining desired lie angles.
The Miura family commitment to detail is evident in the Y Grind, specifically at the address Blade LH position. Subtle changes to the top line and toe profile work in concert with the sole grind delivering a new level of confidence to the golfer. Those changes include a slightly modified toe profile; a visually pleasing top line that enhances a golfer’s confidence; and weight distribution and balance within the clubhead that’s marginally different from our standard LH models. This subtle shift in weight from toe to heel allows the Y Grind player to take dead aim at the target and more easily square up the clubhead at impact.
