Rory Signs NGN Reader’s 006 Putter Headcover

Check this out — not only was NGN friend and reader Lester Legarda lucky enough to score one of the Limited Edition Nike Oven Method Prototype 006 Putters, but he was smart enough to bring the headcover with him to the WGC Cadillac Match Play in San Francisco a few weeks ago and ask eventual winner Rory McIlroy to sign it. Check out the photo below showing Rory signing Lester’s headcover, and the pics of the signed headcover itself.

Congrats and well done Lester, we’re all very jealous!

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.

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.
