The trailer for the short-documentary on the Japanese club manufacturer will be released online on March 7th, giving golf fans, documentary buffs and aficionados of Japanese craftsmanship a glimpse into the world of the Miura family. Billed as the ‘world’s finest forged golf clubs’, the Miura story begins 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 their building techniques, and discovers the legacy of the most storied and secretive manufacturer in golf history.
“Miura is a leader in creating premium forged golf clubs,” says Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf. “From the design, all the way to the hands-on manufacturing, the production of each product is planned out and executed with precision. The Miura family has a proven track record of creating world-renowned clubs and the documentary showcases that tradition. This trailer hints at one of the industry’s most interesting and mysterious stories.”
The short 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 to capture this story. By meeting with members of the Miura family, the American distribution group, and advocates of the clubs within the industry, the film takes a non-partisan exploration route to discovering what goes into these clubs being considered the finest in the world.
