Just received the following press release from Nike Golf — for those of you who have been wanting the all-volt Vapor Speed driver that Michelle Wie has been gaming, you’re in luck. It will be available on Nike.com on Monday May 4th, and at select retailers on Friday May 8th.

From Nike Golf:

On Jan. 28, we told you about a new Nike Vapor Speed driver with an all-volt crown that Michelle Wie put into her bag. Since that time, other athletes as well as consumers have expressed interest in the club. While this club was originally built for Michelle, we want to make you aware that this driver will now be available to consumers on May 4 at nike.com and May 8 at select retailers.

See Nike Golf’s original press release about Michelle’s driver here.

Custom Method Mod 00

Check out NGN reader Scott Ferrari’s custom Method Mod 00. Scott used volt-colored paintfill so that his putter could match his Vapor clubs, Nike Golf Club headcover, and his other various volt-colored items. Here are the before and after shots:

Limited Edition “Clapping Hands” Putter Headcover

Last week, amid the frenzy of the release of the Method Prototype 006 putter, Nike Golf released another limited edition item — the “Clapping Hands” putter headcover. I missed this release completely, but NG Nation reader and supporter Ron Moffett did not. Ron was able to score one of the 50 that were made available last week, and which promptly sold out on Nike.com.

Ron sent the photos below which show this very cool volt and black headcover, with embroidered Nike Golf verbiage logo on top and the “Clapping Hands” pattern embossed into the volt areas.

Check out the photos below — thanks to Ron for sending these and congrats on picking up this sweet collectible headcover!

Nike Method Matter Putters Available Today on Nike.com

METHOD-MATTER

Still waiting for the official press release from Nike Golf, but the 2015 Method Matter putters are now available for purchase on Nike.com. The line features four head shapes, two blade models and two mallet models. The blade models include the Method Matter B1-07 and the Method Matter B2-01. The B2-01 has the same head shape as the much-desired prototype putter that Rory McIlroy uses, the same one that inspired the release of the Method Prototype 006. The B2-01 also comes in a left-handed model. The B1-07 is designed for an arc type putting stroke, and the B2-01 is designed for a slight arc type putting stroke.

The mallet models include the Method Matter M4-12 and the Method Matter M5-12. Both mallet models are designed for a straight putting stroke.

When we get the official press release from Nike Golf we’ll post it here on NGN.

Nike Method 006 SOLD OUT!

Try as I might, I was not able to purchase one of the limited edition Method 006 putters today. However, I know a few Twitter followers that were able to get one, and I believe NGN Bob was able to get one as well!

It was an exciting morning and I am glad to see so much interest in these limited edition releases.

For those like me who did not get one, Nike is releasing the Method Matter B2-01 putter which has the same shape as the Method 006 but comes in black and has a few minor subtle changes like the depth of milling.

It also appears that those who were able to get one of the limited Method 006 putters have already posted on eBay with some list prices as high as $3,400!

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.

 

AVAILABILITY

The putter will be available in limited quantities at nike.com April 15 and select retailers April 17.

#ReleaseThePutter 4.15.15

Leave it up to the folks at Nike Golf to capitalize on a hashtag created by diehard Nike Golf fans.

I have been tracking various forums, particularly the one on Golfwrx.com that dates back to August of 2013, where people like me have used the #releasetheputter hashtag.

For those not following, golf fanatics have been begging Nike for years to release the Method 006 Prototype that Rory McIlroy uses. In fact, the Golfwrx forum started by user wldchld22 (who started the hashtag) is aptly named THE RORS 006 THREAD and has more than 118 pages of comments!

Now, the putter is finally coming to market!

I have heard rumblings and rumors about a spring release date for some time but did not want to jinx it. But now, we have official confirmation from Nike Golf’s Twitter feed.

NEW PRODUCT: Nike Vision Golf X2 Sunglasses

NIKE-VISION_GOLF-X2_750x420

A box arrived at my front door yesterday, and inside was a small presentation box containing a pair of Nike Vision’s new Golf X2 sunglasses. These new sunglasses have very lightweight nylon frames, and feature Nike’s Max Golf Tint lenses which enhance details on the course, making it easier to see the ball and read greens. Another highlight is that the temple pieces are thin, and fit easily under a hat. The nose pieces are ventilated for added comfort, and the temple pieces and nose bridge are adjustable (bendable) for a custom fit.

I also own Nike Vision’s Victory E and Show X2 Golf Sunglasses — I love both of these models, and both also feature Nike’s Max Golf Tint lenses. I can personally attest to how great these are on the course, they really make the contours of the green pop when you’re reading a putt. I can’t wait to try the Golf X2’s, and if they perform as well as the Victory E and Show X2, I can expect to sink an extra putt or two in my next round.

“The 5 and the 6-iron, although they look just like the Vapor Pro blades, these are actually split cavities. These are a tour-issue only model. Again it’s really just the same feel as a blade, but with a little more forgiveness.”
