This morning I played 18 holes at my favorite track Papago Golf Course, and afterwards I headed north to the Nike Store at Scottsdale Quarter for the Nike Golf Gear Up Event which ran from noon to 6 p.m. Nike Golf was out in full force for this special event, and they had their 2012 equipment, footwear and apparel lines on display both inside the store and outside in the courtyard just to the north of the building.
There was a great vibe to the event, as there were DJs spinning tunes inside on the second floor where the Nike Golf collection is, and also out in the courtyard. Inside I met up with Phoenix Nike Golf rep Gordie Sullens, and after checking out the footwear and apparel on display, snapping a few pics and talking with some of the Nike staff there, I headed out to the courtyard. Nike Golf had several tents set up outside, with their equipment, footwear and golf ball lines on display. They also had a large portable hitting bay set up, where they were conducting Speed Trials of the new VR_S family of equipment. There were several people trying out the VR_S equipment while I was there, and there was good traffic at the event as a whole, both inside and out.
Nike Golf will be hosting nationwide Speed Trial events like the one in Scottsdale today starting on March 31st, and I highly suggest trying out the VR_S family for yourself. I’m really liking the whole VR_S line — driver, fairway wood, hybrid and irons, and I had them all in the bag at Papago again today.
