When the opportunity came to review the Miura K Wedge, I have to admit I was rather excited and nervous at the same time. I had seen Miura clubs and admired their beauty and craftsmanship. My initial thoughts were they were well beyond my golfing ability. I immediately started to question myself, did I do the right thing by accepting the challenge to review the Miura K Wedge.
This review is on the new JPX Wedges with Quad Cut Grooves. One of the first things that stood out when I removed the JPX Wedges from the box was the Black Ni finish. I will address more on the finish later on in the review. Another cool stand out was the way they incorporated the large groove cut in the underside of the wedge. It’s a really nice touch that stands out.
Besides the putter, what other club are you almost guaranteed to hit every hole? The answer is your wedge. With the new groove rules in effect, we have been put in a position to make a choice, which one will I game. I have been fortunate enough to test a few wedges, and finally made a decision on my sand wedge. The Cleveland Reg.588 with the Tour Zip Grooves.
The golf industry has seen revolutionary changes over the past 5 years or so, whether it’s the introduction of the hybrid clubs, adjustable drivers or belly-putters, but the wedge has gone relatively unchanged since it’s inception. But that’s changing with the introduction of the SCOR 4161 wedges. Never heard of SCOR? Well, neither had I until I read about their Silver Award in the 2012 Golf Digest© Hot List. Perhaps they’re just another “johnny come lately” golf company, eh? Not so fast….The SCOR Golf Company evolved from the Eidolon Golf Company and they’ve been making wedges since 2003, led by short-game guru Terry Koehler, who has a 30+ year history in the golf industry.
