Why Family Business MattersHow many can golf club manufacturers claim to be family owned and operated?
Where the owner or his sons will inspect and touch every single club that leaves the facility?
When a Miura golf iron goes through the forging process and is ready to leave the doors, Miura-San, Shinei, or Yoshitaka have had some role in the creation of the club. Because when a club leaves the facility, it is not only a reflection of the Miura brand but also the Miura family.
A different level of pride is involved with creating a product directly tied to your family name. As your golf iron, wedge or putter is built, the goal is to create a feel like no other golf club in the industry can provide. This is difficult work.
In a family business, the participants have to be fully engaged and dedicated, and that is how the Miura family operates. With each person having their own place and everyone combining talent and knowledge to hold up the family name.
What Sets Miura Apart?Although the feel of the Miura irons is always talked about as being the star feature of this club, the design cannot be overlooked. Designing a clubhead that stood out in 1957 but still resonates with golfers today is incredibly rare.
Miura-San focuses on both the golf iron's technical design and the transitional design. The technical design includes things like weight, size, center of gravity, and bounce. With tolerances of +/- .5g, you will find the Miura Pursuit of Perfection is alive and well.
Of course, this process is time-consuming, and the design process has been modified with technology and material changes through the years. However, these tolerances and discoveries in golf club manufacturing were all made without AI, something that all golfers should think about when looking for new golf clubs.
