Update: After about 45 minutes of trying I was able to place an order, not sure how I got so lucky. Anyway, when it arrives I’ll shoot pics and post here on NGN. Did anyone else score a Method Prototype 006? Let us know in the comments below. BD
TOUR-PROVEN NIKE METHOD PROTOTYPE 006 PUTTER NO LONGER EXCLUSIVE TO THE PROS
With a record of six Tour victories, including two Major championships, the Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter has made an incredible run in the bags of Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Seung Yul-Noh, among others.
On Wednesday, April 15, the Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter will be available to non-Tour professionals for the first time.
Developed by Nike Master Crasftsman David Franklin, the Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter features Polymetal Groove technology in the face to provide a soft feel and fast forward roll.
“We took the opportunity to blend superior craftsmanship with innovative science to create a putter that not only looks beautiful, but also truly gives the athlete an advantage with a superior roll,” Franklin said.
Franklin and the team of engineers operating out of The Oven, Nike Golf’s advanced R&D facility in Ft. Worth, Texas, are driven to provide athletes with the tools they need to maintain peak performance.
“When we get together to discuss what the athletes need to perform at a world-class level, we bring our expertise to the table and they bring theirs,” Franklin said. “There is power in that and we take it very seriously.”
Each Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter sold will feature a laser-engraved Nike Oven logo and will be bundled with a tour-packaged box of RZN Black golf balls, a volt Nike head cover and a booklet with more information about the club.
The putter will be available in limited quantities at nike.com April 15 and select retailers April 17.
