Tuesday night Nike Golf held a special invitation-only VIP event at The Peabody hotel in Orlando, Florida to officially launch their new line of VR_S woods, hybrids and irons. Nike Golf President Cindy Davis kicked off the event, followed by appearances by Nike Athletes Ken Griffey Jr., Sterling Sharpe and Suzann Pettersen. The event’s emphasis was on “Speed”, with the Athletes participating in “Speed Trials” with the new VR_S driver and fairway woods, putting up some impressive speed and distance numbers. This year Nike Golf will be holding Speed Trial events across the country where players can compare the speed and distance they get with their current equipment with the speed and distance they get with the new VR_S line.
Yours truly was unable to attend the VR_S launch event due to a family obligation, but NG Nation correspondent Michael Karamarkovich was in attendance to cover the event and capture some photos, see those in there gallery below. Also below is a gallery of photos taken from Nike Golf’s Twitter feed. Hopefully these photos will give you a feel for what it was like to be at this special event. Enjoy!
