Introducing the Vapor Iron Family

Powered by Modern Muscle Technology Building a better iron starts with listening to the voice of the athlete. At The Oven, Nike’s meticulous process of collecting insights and implementing feedback from the world’s best athletes has been the driving force behind the development of the Vapor Iron family and Modern Muscle. “We had this idea, if we moved the CG towards the center of the face that it would have more impact and more mass right behind the golf ball. And it worked. I was able to hit that ball a little bit further, it came off more solid, and the amazing thing is the ball flew better.” - Tiger Woods Modern Muscle technology is available in all three members of the Nike Vapor Iron Family – the Vapor Pro, Vapor Pro Combo and Vapor Speed. Because no matter what conventional wisdom might say, there’s always better. Tiger’s future irons, the Nike Vapor Pro Irons are positioned as the replacement for the traditional blade. These irons produce approximately 1.7 yards more distance and feature an MOI that is ten percent higher than the VR Pro Blades they replace. The main technological advantage provided by the Vapor Pro design is what Nike calls a “modern muscle.” This design incorporates tungsten plugs that significantly improve the CG location of the club by moving it closer to the center of the clubface. Unlike traditional blade designs, which feature a CG that’s closer to the hosel, the Vapor Pro and its modern muscle design provide the best results when the ball is struck in the middle of the clubface and produces improved results on shots struck off-center. The Nike Vapor Pro Combo Irons, which fit nicely between the Pro and the Speed, also utilize the modern muscle design to provide a combination of precision and ball speed. Like the Vapor Pro, the Pro Combo irons feature a CG closer to the center of the face, making them both more precise and more forgiving than past Pro Combo models. The Nike Vapor Speed Irons are aimed at players who want maximum distance and forgiveness, simply. Nike’s modern muscle design moves the CG closer to the center of the clubface and lower and deeper in the clubhead to provide a combination of this new CG location with very thin clubfaces and lighter, longer shafts. The result, high launching shots with maximum carry distance. Check out all of the Vapor Irons at Discount Golf World.

Patrick Reed and Callaway Ready for the FedEx Cup Playoffs

Patrick Reed was struggling. By the end of April 2013, he’d entered 13 PGA Tour events and had missed the cut eight times. Save for a 7th place finish at Pebble beach in February, his first full season on Tour was horrific. In fact, from mid-march through the end of April, Reed had missed the cut in 5 of 6 tournaments and finished t71st—almost dead last–in the only event in which he’d managed to play the weekend. With the truncated 2013 season half over, Reed made the switch to Callaway in May. Since then, he’s missed only one cut and garnered 4 top ten finishes, including his first ever victory at the Wyndham Championship, and earned over $1.6 million and enough FedEx Cup points to begin the playoffs at number 22 in total points earned.

Jim Furyk and Callaway Off to Fast Start at The PGA

Jim Furyk attributes his first round lead at the 2013 PGA Championship to his improved putting and his driving accuracy. Furyk needed just 29 putts, including a 40 foot bomb, en route to his first round of 5 under par 65 at Oak Hill Country Club, site of the year’s final major. Furyk made six birdies on the day against a lone bogey on his final hole. His 65 leaves him tied at the top of the leader board with Adam Scott.   Furyk used an Odyssey Versa No. 1 Wide Putter to fashion his best opening round at a major since 2009. Critical to his success on the greens was his play from the tee. Oak Hill is brutal on the best of days, and next to impossible if you’re playing from the rough. Furyk featured the new Callaway FT Optiforce 440 Driver to “hit a bunch of fairways,” which led to hitting 15 greens in regulation. That, in turn, offered an abundance of birdie opportunities.   You’ll want to watch all the action today from Oak Hill Country Club, and while you’re at it, you can check out Furyk’s FT Optiforce Driver and Odyssey Versa No. 1 Wide Putter at DGW.
