A few weeks back during the Crowne Plaza Invitational I was monitoring my Twitter feeds as I normally do. I saw a few tweets go by mentioning Nike Golf’s newly expanded R&D facility in Fort Worth, Texas. As my eyes turned slightly green with envy, I read that select members of the golf media were getting a behind the scenes tour of “The Oven”. If I wasn’t already out of town on a business trip (at a two-day conference about Twitter), I might have just hopped a flight to Fort Worth and tried to beg my way in to take a look around in person.
One of the lucky people to take the tour was Rob of Sandbox 8, and after it was over I read a few more tweets by him and others about how fantastic the facility is. Rob recently posted a great summary of the tour experience including photos and two videos. Below is a link to Rob’s post on Sandbox 8, as well as a link to a short piece The Golf Channel’s Adam Barr did about The Oven on Golf Central. Great post Rob – enjoy everyone!
