Experience The Legendary Miura Feel With The Tour Wedge

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Featuring cutting-edge milling technology, Miura’s latest release delivers the legendary feel that golfers around the world covet. “The Tour Wedge is the first Miura design to use CNC milling for the club face and grooves,” explains Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf. “Combining this technology with Miura’s classic forged steel construction creates a feel at impact that can’t be beat.”

Made of premium (S25C) carbon steel, the Tour Wedge is designed for mid- to low-handicap players who want solid feel with versatility. The CNC-milled face and grooves provide increased precision and the control necessary for enhanced spin control. Additionally, the wedge’s hollow back and higher center of gravity improves trajectory and accuracy in each loft offering. Available in even-numbered lofts ranging from 48° through 60 °, the Tour Wedge is finished in a satin chrome that looks as good as it performs.

LOS ANGELES, CA – Luxury golf-inspired sportswear and accessories brand, G/FORE is putting its full support behind the PGA Tour and Donna Foundation’s PINK OUT campaign during this week’s THE PLAYERS at TPC Sawgrass.

Not only will the brand’s headline ambassadors, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson be sporting custom made pink golf shoes at Sawgrass, the G/FORE website will be full of custom pink items, from hats, shoes, gloves and caps to apparel and even a “shooie” putter cover, in a variety of shades of pink, including Blossom, Blush and Berry.

G/FORE will also be donating 10% of total sales on all PINK OUT products sold on between the 8th May and 13th May to The DONNA Foundation, so log on quickly whilst stocks last, contribute to a great cause and indulge your passion for pink in typical G/FORE style.

G/FORE is a passionate supporter of breast cancer awareness. Known for its coloured gloves, (especially pink) the company felt THE PLAYERS was the perfect opportunity to showcase its PINK products and, more importantly, support a great cause.

Already a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this season, Watson has hit top form and is surely a firm contender to claim a maiden title at THE PLAYERS. In support of the campaign and keeping with the brand’s Disruptive Luxury theme, the two-time Major champion will be sporting a pair of custom painted G/FORE High-Top Disruptors, featuring a logo in support of Mother’s Day and Blossom & Blush coloured gloves from The Collection range.

A return to winning ways at the WGC in Mexico has marked a return to the Mickelson of old and the popular American will be keen to add to his lone victory at Sawgrass in 2007. A passionate supporter of breast cancer awareness, Phil will be playing his part by wearing a custom painted pair of his favoured G/FORE Gallivanter shoes, complete with his iconic Jumping Phil logo shining out in pink.
