Cheap Nike wedges and putters (new!) at Academy Sports, if you're keeping Nike and have gaps to fill.

In the golf section I found Nike VR.X3X wedges for $20 and some Nike Method Core putters for $30.

I had never been to Academy Sports & Outdoor before. It's kind of a cross between Sports Authority (RIP) and Cabela's. For golf, it's a cut-rate version of Sports Authority:

  • A few first-line putters and wedges, and some legacy models from TM (RAC wedges and SLDR long clubs) and Callaway (X Series 416 long clubs).
  • Assorted balls, gloves, etc.
  • SuperFly wedges = 68°, 72° and 76°! and budget-tier Wilson long clubs
  • Various boxed sets
  • Academy golf bags and clothing
  • No hitting bay!

A clerk said most of their store's golf revenue comes from balls, accessories and clothing - not a whole lot of club sales.

Good to know, thanks for sharing. I don't have much experience with Nike clubs, but I do have a 56* SV Tour in the bag and I think it's a great club. Great feeling head weight and the bounce and grind is just right for me. It's the club I grab when I need to get creative, even more so than my Mizzy 60* which I also love. The SV Tour just has that extra level of forgiveness that's a real confidence builder when you need to think outside of the box with a shot. It also has a really nice soft feel that most would associate with a forged wedge. Well worth looking at, especially if bargain basement prices are being offered up!

It's a club that won't get bumped from the bag until the grooves are totally shot. No interest in even testing out another 56* until this baby is dead.
