Abraham Ancer, currently 61st in the official world rankings, has become Miura’s first PGA Tour ambassador. Ancer, who won the 2018 Emirates Australian Open, has also joined with some partners to establish Dead Solid Perfect Golf Mexico, the country’s first official Miura distributor.
A dual citizen of the U.S. and Mexico, the 27-year-old Ancer has already been playing Miura irons and believes deeply in the product. “I switched to Miura irons before any partnership; I just wanted to play the best forged irons available,” said Ancer. “I am honored to represent Miura and look forward to introducing Miura to the Mexican market.”
Ancer will kick off his role as Miura’s first PGA Tour ambassador today at the WGC-Mexico Championship. President of Miura Golf, Hoyt McGarity comments, “This is a first for Miura and it was important to us that this partnership transcend the traditional sponsorship model. Abraham is the perfect partner to grow Miura’s presence on and off the course. As one of the most successful Mexican golfers ever, his personal investment in Miura is the strongest endorsement as we increase our operations in Mexico and other parts of the world.”
Miura and GOLF.com are operated by the same holding company, 8AM Golf.
