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.

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!

    • The last tee shot with lead leg getting kicked up in the air and all was hilarious.. . Haven't watched the interview as can't turn up volume here at work.   Good luck (dead)man..!
    • Any idea if the over hundred scores with high slopes course yardages are? I am assuming they are not all your home course.
    • 5/25/17: Mother nature didn't cooperate this morning. So I couldn't practice outside... Damn. So I worked on the 75-80% effort swing, stopping at each position in the backswing..  It works better I've found with hitting balls with a slightly more than three-quarter backswing, though it does work to parallel with longer clubs. It's different to me, still getting used to the feeling... But I believe it will be better for my game in the future.
    • Hello all. This is not a google type question, so I'm putting it out there for the humans. I have recently discovered I have been swinging a wood shaft on my driver for the last 10+ years. Yes 10+... Anyways, I'm a big swinger with my drives between 270 and 300 yds. 115+ mph swing speed according to my local golf shop (with my driver). The driver is a Taylormade R7 with an Aldila NV 65 s shaft (stiff). I'm also left handed, hence nobody ever told me I was swinging a wood shaft because I only play with you right handed folk. I now know that a stiff wood shaft is stiffer than a stiff driver shaft, so what type of flex and weight should I get if I want to replace my current shaft? I still want to take the big cuts that I have grown accustomed to, since it is the strongest part of my game (I have a strong scramble presence I need to keep up). I'm thinking extra stiff will still feel looser than my current shaft? I have since picked up and dabbled with a lefty driver with a stiff driver shaft and it felt like my wife's 8 iron (no offense intended). But do I just need to get used to this? Or go extra stiff? Thank you for reading this far. Any input is greatly appreciated.
    • I am brand new to The Sand Trap so veterans bear with me. I recently Demoed The Callaway Epic Driver and hit it better than I expected ( a good 15 to 20 yards past my Taylormade Aeroburner). I have read all the reviews by club pros but for my money the proof comes on the golf course from guys that can tell me if they found any distance over their regular gamer. I know my experience was only one round and I wanted some input before I spend the $$. On a second note: For the past several years I have had my Driver painted (I just couldn't go with all that white on the Taylormade) and would think about doing the same if I purchase the Epic to match my 3Wood and Hybrids. I have read that the "Speed Step" on the top of the Epic is a 3 D decal and not a part of the actual structure of the head. If that is the case I am afraid sanding might remove it. Just wondered if anyone knows more about the "Speed Step"? Thanks.
