Adam Scott debuts new custom Miura irons with special heel-toe shape

Adam Scott enjoys experimenting with new gear and is always willing to make last-minute adjustments.

Scott began using a mixed set of Srixon irons during the Pebble Beach Pro-Am this year, and it appeared like he had become very comfortable with them.

However, at the Charles Schwab Challenge, Scott arrived with a brand-new bespoke Miura iron setup, having missed the cut at the PGA Championship.

These new irons are not the same as the customised Miura AS-1 irons that Scott used in 2023.

Throughout his career, the 25-year veteran of the PGA Tour has primarily used classic blade irons, but in the last 12 months he has switched to somewhat more forgiving irons.

Scott’s new KM-700 irons are technically one-piece forged designs, but they have a special heel-toe shape that increases forgiveness by moving the centre of gravity towards the club’s heel. Additionally, the intricate hollow design of the irons allows for the best possible combination of turf interaction and centre of gravity.

The KM-700 irons aim to fuse the contemporary intricacy of perimeter-weighted cavity-back irons with the appearance and feel of a conventional blade iron.

“Designed to deliver the club head to square at impact, this revolutionary design is made possible only by Miura’s proprietary manufacturing techniques in concert with the grinding expertise of the Miura Craftsmen,” Miura proudly declares of the clubs.

“The never-ending search for perfection included numerous iterations of the head, all the while searching for the optimum weight distribution. The result is a club which will allow all golfers to get the most out of their game.

“Katsuhiro Miura set out to make something elegant and refined, to create something beautiful, with the highest degree of integrity.

“His patience and unique forging process ensures the grain of the steel is fine and uniformed, leading to a feel unlike anything else. The Miura feel. Every club is hand-crafted, one-by-one, and touched by Miura-San or one of his two sons, Shinei and Yoshitaka.”

Miura called the red hanko branding on Scott’s new irons his “stamp of approval.”

Additionally, Scott’s own emblem has been included into the back cavities.

Scott’s management said that, despite the irons being brand-new to his competition bag, he initially got them at the Miura headquarters in Japan last autumn when attending the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP last autumn.

He also experimented with the KM-700 short irons for a short while last year at the Wyndham Championship, but he hasn’t carried them around the course since.

This will change on at Colonial as Scott looks to build on a season that has seen him finish in the top 25 five times out of ten appearances, with his best result coming in the WM Phoenix Open where he finished in a tie for eighth.
