Miura Golf Introduces the TC-201
The TC-201 offers the performance of a muscle back with the increased forgiveness of a cavity back
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. [January 13, 2019] — Miura Golf today introduced the TC-201, the newest addition to the esteemed Japanese brand’s line of forged irons. Marked by a shallow cavity and sharp topline, the TC-201 presents a perfect marriage of playability and increased forgiveness. Designed and forged in the company’s Himeji, Japan factory, the TC-201 sets the pace for a new decade of innovation from the Miura family.
The TC-201 continues the legacy of unrivaled feel and control golfers have come to expect from Miura.
Inspired by Miura’s top-selling iron in Japan, the CB-1008, Shinei and Yoshitaka Miura have expanded on their father Katsuhiro’s original blueprint for the forged clubhead. The TC-201 features progressive weighting with each club perfectly complementing the next one in the bag. Long irons feature heightened toe and heel weight for added forgiveness, with a lower center of gravity for higher ball-flight and soft landing on greens.
The smooth connection from hosel to the top-line of the clubface rests easily behind the ball, appearing blade-like at address. Slightly changing to a higher center of gravity in the short irons creates a lower trajectory and more control on shorter shots as one works through the set.
Constant weight toward the heel and toe helps with off-center shots. The sole design contributes significantly to the playability and forgiveness of this club, and the minimal offset paired with the top line at address, inspiresconfidence in a wide variety of golf swings and skill sets.
The improvements made to the TC-201 serve as the perfect complement to the classic Miura blade, the MB-101, released in October 2019.
“The TC-201s are a cavity back five years in the making,” said Hoyt McGarity, CEO of Miura Golf. “They are a testament to the Miura family’s dedication to perfection in craftsmanship, and are the most anticipated Miura irons in recent memory.”
Forged from premium S25C soft carbon steel and finished in satin chrome, the TC-201 set runs 3-PW. It retails for $300 per iron. Golfers can purchase the TC-201 and all other Miura products at authorized club fitters around the globe or fully assembled at www.Miuragolf.com.
