The latest collaboration from Miura marks Nicklaus’ return to the equipment space
(Scottsdale, AZ) — After months of anticipation, Miura Golf today, on schedule, announced it has begun shipping limited edition Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons to customers. The historic collaboration from the Japanese manufacturer and the 18-major winner are the first clubs to bear the Nicklaus name in more than a decade. The limited series of hand-forged Miura blades reflecting Jack’s preferred specifications will be shipped to collectors who prize both beauty and function.
The Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons sold out within a week of first being announced during Jack’s Memorial Tournament in July 2020.
“The overwhelming response to the Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons illustrates the demand for selectively incorporating Miura’s legendary standard of excellence into collaborations that produce exquisite results,” Miura Golf CEO Hoyt McGarity said. “This is the best way to reintroduce Nicklaus irons to a new generation of golfers, and that’s by pairing the greatest golfer with the greatest forger for an iron that truly is worth the wait. This artisanal adaption of the Nicklaus blade represents the long-sought revival of the Golden Bear.”
Crafted with input from Jack to match his preferred club design and functionality, the irons were forged in the Himeji, Japan factory to produce the unmistakable Miura feel. Forged from premium S20C soft carbon steel and finished in satin chrome, the most defining characteristics of the Commemorative Irons are its unique look and sole. Through subtle grinding techniques, the center of gravity is a bit closer to the toe, while making certain that the distribution of weight in the head followed the design specifications Nicklaus preferred and used while on Tour.
