Is the retail name for Nike Golf’s new Prototype RZN golf ball going to be 20XI? In the photo above taken from Nike Golf’s web site yesterday (in the new SQ MachSpeed Black microsite that was released yesterday), take a look at the side of Lucas Glover’s hat — where previously there was the “ONE” golf ball logo, there is now a “20XI” logo, which I can only presume might be the name of Nike Golf’s new ball. I searched for “Nike” and “20XI” and found the logo above (next to the photo). 20XI is an interesting word mark — “2011” in half standard numbers and half roman numerals, plus I assume there will be a technology tie-in with the new name and identity.
I’m not the only one who noticed this new logo on the Nike Golf web site, the same question was also posed in this thread on golfwrx.com. We’re supposed to get official word some time in January, and when we do we’ll post it right here on NG Nation.
