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.

Don't see that either......do you have to have a minimum number of posts?

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!

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
