It’s Masters week – my favorite golf week of the year! But there’s also a lot to talk about for Nike Golf. Here are my notes for this month:
Jhonny Vegas in Custom Lunar Fire
Jhonattan Vegas has worn the Lunar Fire golf shoe since its debut, but in the past couple months he’s been wearing a custom version with a side swoosh. This version is not available at retail and was likely done to provide additional brand recognition for the brand. See below for the retail version and Vegas’ custom Lunar Fires.
No Commemorative Items for the Masters
I was excited to receive an email on Thursday from Nike Golf that was entitled, “Nike Golf Presents: Major Mindset” however the email only referenced the scripting for Rory McIlroy and Jason Day. This year, there were no special items for Majors and admittedly I am a bit disappointed by the decision to pass on a great opportunity for the fans. Check out some previous items here: 2001; 2011; 2012; 2013; 2014
Missed opportunity to have some fun with colorways – From 2008
Jordan XIII Golf Shoes Coming in May…
Have a look at this video from the Nike Golf Club promotional launch earlier this month where it is discussed that there will be more Jordan golf items coming to market
Nike Golf Club Hat Now Available
Imagine my disappointment when I saw on Twitter that Nike was not going to release the NGC hat to the public. But then to put salt in my wound, I ended up going online and purchasing the Pro Mesh hat, only to find out that the hat became available for sale just a few days later.
4 days later… Get the hat here
Nike Unveils not one, but TWO TW shoes
Without much of a launch, Nike not only unveiled the TW17, but also the strapless TW71. I’ve seen both of these shoes in person and the shoe has a much more stable footbed, and the TW71 is currently the shoe of choice for Jason Day.
