Miura Officially Debuts Documentary

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – The inside story behind one of golf’s most iconic and mysterious brands is about to be unveiled with the release of the film documentary, Discovering Perfection: The Miura Story, was digitally distributed on March 19, 2018 at miuragolf.com/film.

The short-documentary on the Japanese club manufacturer takes golf fans, documentary buffs and aficionados of Japanese craftsmanship into the world of the Miura family. Billed as the world’s finest forged golf clubs, Miura’s story began in 1957 when the company’s founder, Katsuhiro Miura, began hand-grinding golf clubs. The documentary, set in three chapters, uncovers the history of the brand, explores its building techniques, and discovers the legacy of the most storied and secretive manufacturer in golf history.

“Behind the world’s finest forged golf clubs is a compelling story,” says Howard Milstein, Executive Producer. “Since 1957, the Miura family has been hands-on, designing and constructing premium golf clubs that set the industry standard. There’s precision every step of the way and this documentary showcases the tradition and incredible craftsmanship that creates one of the most interesting stories in the golf industry.”

The film, supported by Executive Producer Howard Milstein, was captured throughout 2017 by a Canadian documentary film-team that traveled to Japan and throughout North America in putting together this story. By meeting with Miura family members, the American management group, and advocates of the clubs, the film takes a non-partisan exploration route to discovering what goes into these clubs being considered the finest in the world.
