grindworks is a Japanese golf brand with a focus on unique design, materials, manufacturing, and performance with an emphasis on feel and quality. grindworks was created as a premium brand to rival some of Japan’s (and the world’s) top-established component brands.
Beginning from simple round table discussions back in 2015 to hand-drawn designs matched with extensively researched and thought out technical aspects, to 3D CAD drawings and resin samples to multiple revisions and hundreds of hours of meetings, we worked on developing various models which would provide the best in feel and performance for a broad spectrum of golfers. Tooling samples were made, tested, revised, tested again, and revised until the final original molds were created for the finished products.
Special care is taken into materials and manufacturing as these two aspects play a huge role in how a golf club design will feel, look, and, ultimately, perform. Five years later in 2020, our growth and experience helps take our golf club development to the next level. We strive to create premium performance golf clubs for a wide variety of golfers to help them enjoy the game more.
grindworks is proud to announce that Masters Champion and perennial world top 20 player Patrick Reed has chosen our Japanese premium golf brand as his equipment of choice. This collaboration between Mr. Reed and grindworks not only involves Mr. Reed playing grindworks golf clubs but also partnering with grindworks on the development of new models and the growth of the brand.
In order to commemorate this inaugural event, grindworks will be releasing the Patrick Reed Signature Iron set for sale this Fall. This special 8-piece (3-PW) PR-101A forged iron set comes specially boxed and will be limited to only 100 sets globally.
The PR-101A forged iron was developed together with Mr. Reed based on his needs as a top pro. Mr. Reed approached grindworks last year about creating iron that would allow him to knock down shots from any distance without worrying about ballooning or loss of direction. Using soft S20C forging to enhance feel and spin, we created a stepped design for the iron that places a focus on stability and control by raising the center of gravity height. This allows Mr. Reed to attack the pin with a more penetrating shot and heavier spin resulting in shots closer the pin.
Mr. Reed put a prototype of the PR-101A into play in December 2019 at the Hero World Challenge and went on to win the World Golf Championships in Mexico in February with the irons. So far in the short 2020 season, Mr. Reed already has 1 victory and 8 top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour using the PR-101A and is currently ranked 10th in the world.
Patrick Reed and grindworks have spent countless hours designing and creating one of the purest blades on the market. With their expertise and attention to detail, there is so much more to come. They have now designed cavity back irons coming out soon, wedges, utility club, hybrid, and a driver as well. Stay Tuned.
Envision when simplicity meets raw talent. That is what happens when our finest club designers at grindworks come into contact with the finest metals and forgings.
Now imagine, when two people at the top of their industries put their minds together.
