Miura Golf might not be widely known, but to the extent it is known, it's for its forged irons, many of which have appeared in leading PGA Tour players' bags, albeit under more familiar brand names. The Miura K.J. Choi Special Limited Edition irons are an exception.

The irons are an exact replica of the Miura CB-501 irons, 4 through pitching wedge, Choi used in winning the Players Championship in 2011. It will also include Miura 54 and 59-degree forged wedges.

Only 300 sets will be made, each bearing its own set number, and will include a wood display box and a letter of authenticity signed by Choi and Miura Golf founder Katsuhiro Miura.

The cost of the set is prohoibitive, $5,000, but a portion of the proceeds will be to the K.J. Choi Foundation.
