Nike Golf

24 posts in this topic

Recently I have decided to give Nike some love. I have never been a huge Nike guy but going into this season I picked up a few items to try. See signature for the clubs chosen. Sadly none of the equimpment is the latest so please feel free to give me some feedback on the clubs I will be using. I am excited to try the Method Core putter and VR sand wedge. thanks

I really enjoy the VR wedge, the top line really pleases the eye, and it feels great. I thought that the Method Core would be junk, it is one of my favorite putters (with an insert).

Driver and putter have been the 2 clubs that I have just not been able to get comfortable with so I figured why not change it up and go with NIKE. Going from a Vokey sand wedge with a dg spinner shaft to the VR stock shaft.

I have been playing Nike drivers since 09. (Dymo2, MachSpeed Black, VR Pro II & now VR-S)  I recieved the TM Rocketballz for free through work and can not hit that thing worth a lick.  I also had the 1st Slingshot irons (05 I think) when I first started to golf loved them too.

All I have are Nike Clubs.

I'm not sure how to edit my signature to list my clubs.

Add your clubs to a list, then add the list to your signature on your profile page.

Or just add them in your signature on your profile page.

Nike has come a long way. I still use the SQ 2 and 3 hybrids regularly. Great clubs and not expensive.

Nike makes good stuff.  They have hired some of the best people in the golf industry and in the case of their forged stuff, its made by Endo in Japan (one of the best forging houses in the world).  Some of my favorite clubs that Ive owned have been Nike (SQ Sumo driver, Slingshot irons).  A lot of people like to hate on Nike because they feel that Nike bought their way into the golf industry (including myself for a long time) but the fact is that Nike makes some of the best golf gear that money can buy.

I was on staff with Nike for the last two years before switching this season. I was very happy with the products they made. I just couldn't get used to the ball last season although I have been told that the new one is much better.

I was maybe still am tempted to go after the new Covert driver. I really wish I was skilled enough for the blades. They are very attractive clubs.

Nike's forged stuff is made in China and Thailand, and it's very good quality.

I used a Nike VR driver, 3W and hybrid, as well as testing out several different iron sets numerous times, but never really felt all that enamored with them, so I switched over to mostly TaylorMade.

I still use at Nike VR 60 degree and Method putter, both of which I love, so, who knows.

I just bought some VR TW blades and have been doing nothing but flushing them they are great. TaylorMade has my heart in terms of drivers and rescues and I just picked up a ghost putter that rolls well.

Wrong.  Look at the sticker on the shaft.  It says, "clubhead made in Japan".  Last summer I had a VR Pro wedge in the bag.  No argument about the quality though.  On a side note, yesterday I was at Golfsmith looking at putters and gave a Drone a few rolls.  It looks weird but it works and Im seriously considering trading my Never Compromise in on it!

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
