Miura Golf donating 20 percent of golf bag sales in April to Nicklaus Children's Hospital

Social distancing among golfers boosts demand for limited-supply Vessel bags, which primarily are designed for carrying

Scottsdale, Ariz. -- With golfers across the country pitching in to support their local communities, Miura Golf announced today that, during the month of April, the company will donate 20 percent of every Miura signature branded Vessel golf bag sold to Nicklaus Children's Hospital, the world-renowned pediatric medical institution based in Miami, Florida.

Social distancing measures on the golf course have led to a rise in demand for the limited-supply Vessel bags, which are primarily designed for carrying. The iconic Miura signature branded Vessel bags are available in three styles — the classic Stand Bag made from premium materials for durability, a "Lite" version of the Stand Bag for the avid course-walker, and handcrafted Tour Bags. The bags come in black or white, and all sport the Miura insignia.

Bags range from $375 - $675 and are available for purchase on www.miuragolf.com.

The offer allows loyal Miura enthusiasts the opportunity to support Nicklaus Children’s Hospital with Miura bags that offer a distinguished flair that stands out at any distance.

Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is named for Jack Nicklaus and his wife Barbara, who have been committed and generous patrons of the institution for many years. The hospital recently announced that it is admitting additional pediatric patients as South Florida hospitals prepare for a surge in coronavirus hospitalizations.

Miura Golf is part of the 8AM GOLF family of companies, led by the entrepreneur and philanthropist Howard Milstein. Mr. Milstein partnered with Jack Nicklaus in 2007 and is the Executive Chairman of Nicklaus Companies.
