ARGOLF Releases New AR-F18 Irons

JUPITER, FL – With several wins, including one Major, ARGOLF has proved itself to be a fierce competitor in the golf club space. After experiencing great success in the putter market, ARGOLF has released its first set of irons: AR-F18 Forged Cavity Back Irons.

The AR-F18 Forged Cavity Back Irons feature a slightly larger blade that feels reminiscent for many golfers of the original blades irons we all once knew and loved. Its medium-width sole is slightly cambered and adds an extra bounce that allows for optimum performance on all turf conditions.

The AR-F18 Forged Cavity Back Irons are forged four times from S20C Steel and are cavity and face milled with CNC. A lower center of gravity in the irons allows the player to swing the club more easily with optimum stability and control. Lamkin 360 Crossline grips provide an unmatched feel and comfort. The AR-F18 Forged Cavity Back Irons are available in your choice of KBS 105 Tour steel shafts for the ideal blend of feel and performance, or UST Recoil ESX graphite shafts for a higher trajectory.

Undoubtedly worthy of the ARGOLF name, the AR-F18 Forged Cavity Back Irons are the perfect addition to your golf game. The AR-F18 Forged Cavity Back Irons are available at the ARGOLF Putting Lab in Jupiter, FL and at select authorized club fitters around the United States.

Miura Golf Announces Abraham Ancer As Its First PGA Tour Ambassador

SCOTTSDALE, AZ –  Miura Golf today introduced Mexico’s Abraham Ancer as the first PGA Tour Ambassador in the legendary brand’s history. In conjunction with this unique partnership with Miura, Ancer — a rising star on the PGA Tour — has joined with two prominent entrepreneurs to form Dead Solid Perfect (DSP) Golf Mexico, which will become the official distributor of Miura Golf in Mexico.

Ancer and Miura launch their new relationship as the PGA Tour arrives in Ancer’s home country for the WGC-Mexico Championship, beginning today at Club de Golf Chapultepec and continuing through February 24th.

Ancer, currently ranked 61 in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR), has played Miura clubs since 2017. Last month, GolfWRX tapped the 27-year-old as most likely “to get his maiden win on Tour in 2019.” As PGA Tour Ambassador, he will work directly with the Miura family in Himeji, Japan to craft his custom-designed forged irons, and will don the trademarked Miura hat at tour events.

In selecting its inaugural PGA Tour Ambassador, Miura has established an unprecedented relationship with Ancer, the 2018 Emirates Australian Open winner. Ancer and Master fitter Genaro Davila — who originally fit Ancer for Miura clubs two years ago — have teamed up with entrepreneur Gerardo Benavides to form DSP Golf Mexico. The agreement between Miura and DSP Golf Mexico will further Miura’s reach throughout Mexico. Based in Monclova, Coahuila, DSP Golf Mexico features a professionally staffed fitting studio and club assembly facility with the full line of Miura products.

The partnership with DSP Golf Mexico is the latest milestone in an international campaign to introduce the greater golfing community to the meticulous craftsmanship of Miura. The brand has scaled its international network, now with four exclusive distributors and over 200 authorized dealers on five continents. Golfers can find the closest authorized club fitter or order fully-assembled clubs directly from the manufacturer at

STATE APPAREL Launches 2019 Spring Women’s Golf Apparel Line

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – STATE APPAREL – creators of functional golfwear made with a unique Wiping System – announces the launch of the brand’s first women’s golf clothing collection, featuring fitted polos, outerwear and tailored pants in a variety of color and size options.

Drawing inspiration from the best-selling men’s Competition pant, the Presidio women’s golf pants are crafted to provide an extremely comfortable, yet formfitting feel. The brand’s signature wiping material can be found along the side and back pockets for brushing away sand and grass. Created with durable stretch performance twill, the mid-weight bottoms offer complete warmth and protection from wind, water and stains.

Highlighting the polo range are the modern-classic Pixley polo, boasting moisture-wicking material with SPF 50 protection, and the Union polo made with a blend of sustainable bamboo fabric and cotton/spandex for a super soft feel. Both shirts sport double fold sleeve details and are the ideal length to wear tucked or untucked.

When cooler weather hits, the Fillmore quarter-zip pullover serves as a lightweight, yet warming layering piece. Incorporating STATE APPAREL’s wiping material in the cuffs, the top features a stylish raglan sleeve with contrast stitching.

Dedicated to sustainability, STATE APPAREL manufactures all garments in San Francisco and chooses USA-made products when possible to maintain a positive, long-lasting impact on the local economy.

STATE APPAREL is also the first apparel brand to introduce its innovative Wiping System. By strategically adding wiping layers of towel-like fabric to cuffs, sides and pockets of select garments, golfers are able to efficiently clean hands, clubs and golf balls in a swift movement, eliminating the need for toweling off equipment between shots.
