High Performance Rain Wear: Nike HyperAdapt

Nike recently unveiled a new line of foul weather golf gear designed to deliver superior waterproof and windproof protection combined with flexible breathability. According to Nike, the new HyperAdapt Storm-Fit Jacket, available in both Full-Zip and ½-Zip versions, and HyperAdapt Storm-Fit Pants offer golfers unsurpassed comfort, protection and mobility. These claims were immediately bolstered when Paul Casey, winless in over 2 years, claimed the Irish Open while wearing both the HyerAdapt Jacket and Pants during the 35 mph winds and heavy showers that plagued the event.

Adjustability Made Easy: The New TaylorMade SLDR Driver

The adjustable driver has been around for awhile, and every major manufacturer has embraced the technology, at least to some degree. TaylorMade has been committed to adjustable drivers and moveable weight technology since 2004, but the benefit of adjustability has been lost to a vast number of golfers who have no desire to delve into the complexities of tinkering with loft, lie, face angle and weighting. Taken to its extreme, adjustability for the average golfer may seem just a bit gimmicky. For those who haven’t embraced the adjustability craze, and just as importantly, for those who have, the new TaylorMade SLDR (“Slider”) Driver offers quick and easy adjustability that just about anyone can understand—and from which everyone can benefit.

It’s Here: TaylorMade R1 Black Driver

Black is the new black! TaylorMade launched the new R1 Black Driver today and it is, well, unbelievably cool. The R1, released earlier in 2013, introduced us to the concept of an adjustable driver that can be fine tuned to fit anyone’s game. From Tour pro to beginner, the R1 offered one club head that could be adjusted to everyone’s swing. The R1 instantly became the number one driver on the PGA Tour and found its way to millions of amateur’s bags, as well. So what’s new with the R1 Black Driver, you ask? Technically speaking, nothing at all… except the finish–it’s black. And contrary to what you might think, that is a very big deal.   There are countless golfers around the world who feel a driver ought to be black, not white. There is genuine science behind the white phenomenon; that being the optical illusion created by the contrast between white crown and black face that makes the club head appear huge, inspiring confidence. Fair enough, but for those among us who want the aggressive look of all black, then who cares what the science says. Black is back—and it has some upgrades with this new R1 Driver. The glossy finish is truly beautiful and TM incorporated the R1 alignment graphics on the crown, but with a significant difference. Whereas the “face paint” graphics are almost overwhelming on the original R1’s white matte finish, they are subtlety done on the R1 Black, offering a distinctive look that adds to the uniqueness of the club. The graphics are, in a word, cool. And so is this driver. You can pre-order the TaylorMade R1 Black Driver at DGW today.  

The Nike Tiger Woods TW ’14 Golf Shoe Is Here

Tiger Woods picked up his 4th victory of 2013 and the 78th of his career at the Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass on Mother’s Day. The season is still young, but in winning over ½ of his PGA Tour starts thus far, Tiger is setting a torrid pace that leaves many speculating that 2013 will be his best season ever.   Tiger captured his second Players Championship while wearing his new Nike Tiger Woods TW’14 Golf Shoes. The TW’14s further enhance  the fit, feel and function first developed with the TW’13. Like the previous version, the new TW’14 utilizes Nike Free technology designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot. The innovative outsole allows the golfer to keep contact with the ground longer to better harness the energy of the foot to the shoe, and the shoe to the ground. A new upper offers improved ventilation achieved through the use of strategically-located perforations that increase breathability without compromising waterproof protection.   “With this shoe, we worked diligently to take every detail to a new level,” said Tobie Hatfield, Athlete Projects Innovator at Nike. “In the TW ’14, Tiger wanted more stability with mobility and we’ve accomplished that by using Nike’s Dynamic Flywire Technology which moves with him, but stabilizes his foot when he swings. We also increased breathability of the shoe by using a full mesh tongue.”   The new TW ’14 also has a new color available-Cool Grey with Vivid Blue and Venom Green accents, which will be available August 1, 2013.   The Nike Tiger Woods TW ’14 Golf Shoes are available for pre-order today at DGW.  

Tiger Woods and Nike Ready for The Masters

The Masters begins in just two weeks and every golf fan knows which golfer will be favored to win. Tiger Woods recently regained World Number One status over fellow Nike athlete, Rory McIlroy. With his third victory in five PGA starts this year,  Tiger appears primed to add a fifth Green Jacket to his collection. Like Jack Nicklaus before him, Tiger seems always to be at his best at Augusta National, the home of The Masters. For even the casual fan, there’s just something about the year’s first Major that heightens interest in the game. It’s a special place, Augusta National, and the Masters is a special tournament that breeds special champions—like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. To commemorate the Masters, Nike introduces a special edition shoe. The Tiger Woods TW13 Limited Edition Golf Shoes are available today at DGW. The Limited Edition TW13 is Tiger’s shoe, made to his exacting specifications, and decked out with deep green, yellow and red accents on the outsole, eye-stay and tongue. Modeled after the Nike Free running shoe, the TW13 is known for its superior feel, fit and function—and Tiger wears them for every round. The TW13 may not be the only reason Tiger has regained his Number One position in the world, but they are distinctive enough, just like the Masters, to inspire this special version for a limited time and in limited quantities. Order your Tiger Woods TW13 Limited Edition Golf Shoes by Nike at DGW today.

Nike Covert Driver Preview

The new Nike VR_S Covert Driver will hit the market in February 2013, and without having seen an actual demo as yet, here are the first impressions.   There are two main features distinctively new to the Covert Driver; three if you count the red finish. First, the driver has a large hole in the sole, what Nike is referring to as a High Speed Cavity Back. Nike scooped a hole from the back of the sole and shifted the displaced weight to the heel and toe areas, creating advanced perimeter weighting that offers increased distance on off center hits. With drivers having maxed out COR long ago, what Nike has done is look for a way to increase distance otherwise. Combined with Nike’s NexCor technology (Nike’s term for variable face thickness), the perimeter weighting design prevents noticeable loss of distance on mis-hits. In fact, Nike tells us the advanced NexCor Tech in the Covert Driver expands the “hot zone” by 45%.   The second new feature is the adjustable hosel—the Nike “FlexLoft “system. This is really cool. There is a variable range between 8.5 and 12.5 degrees. Loft and face angle can be adjusted independently to deliver 15 combinations. This will allow golf retailers to stock one head that can be independently adjusted and tested on site (or by the golfer on the range) to arrive at a custom-like fit.   The new Covert Driver is available with a 460cc head, as well as a pear shaped 430cc Tour version for the low handicap player. Both come with a stock, real deal Mitsubishi Kuro Kage shaft–50 grams for the VR_S Covert and 60 for the Covert Tour. Nike claims they have fine-tuned the sound of these drivers so they’re not too loud or harsh but offer a solid “thump” at impact instead.   Nike’s taking this tech into its fairway wood and hybrid designs, as well. All will be available February 8, 2012.   Paul Casey was the first Nike Athlete to put the Covert in his bag. Recently signed Nike Athletes Nick Watney and Kyle Stanley have also bagged the Nike Covert. You can pre-order the Nike Covert or Covert Tour today at DGW.

Get The Latest From Callaway: The New X Utility Prototype Iron Is Here

Callaway teased us for a good part of the summer following its announcement in May of a new X Utility Prototype Iron, available only for Tour Staff. Introduced in May at the Byron Nelson Championship, the X Utility Prototype, available in lofts of 18, 21 and 24 degrees, went into the bags of notable Callaway staffers Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson, among others. Prior to the US Open, Callaway specifically announced they had no plans to market to the public, but would consider it if one of their staffers won.   Whether an intentional marketing ploy, or simply a realistic assessment of the somewhat limited market for this “player’s” utility, the decision paid off later in the summer when Ernie Els won the Open Championship with three of the prototypes in his bag. It helped also that Ernie led the field in greens in regulation and fired a tidy 4 under 32 coming home on Sunday.   As the Tour season progressed, more and more players decided they liked the look, feel, sound and workability of the X Utilities, so much so that players with 10 club deals with other manufacturers (a pretty common arrangement) began lining up to give these a try. Following Ernie’s win golf junkies were salivating with the hope that Callaway would go to market. Well, they have, and the new X Utility Prototype Iron is here at DGW and ready for your bag.   The X Utility is probably not for everyone, but for those among us reluctant to let go of our longer irons, these are the ticket. The X Utilities will be available in the same 18, 21 and 24 degree lofts as those made for the pros, which makes them suitable replacements for your current 2, 3 and 4 irons (or hybrids). They are constructed using a hollow forged body made of 1020 carbon steel and tungsten with a high-strength maraging steel face that produces higher ball speeds than long irons for hybrid-like distance. The hollow construction with a low CG creates higher launch and more forgiveness. The shaft lengths are more akin to irons than hybrids, and there is a lack of bulge radius on the face that helps create a straighter, more consistent ball flight than hybrids.   The X Utility offers something further for the better player that hybrids do not—workability. You can work the ball consistently in either direction, so there’s an element of versatility that allows iron-like control with hybrid distance.   The X Utilities from Callaway are available as a limited edition model (at least for now), with your option of either True Temper Project X PXi steel shafts or Graphite Design G Series 95 shafts. Place your order today at DGW and experience the power of a hybrid combined with the feel and workability of a forged iron.      

Cleveland 588 Altitude Irons: New Product Review

Cleveland Golf just introduced the new 588 Altitude Irons. Constructed with a full hollow body design, these “hybrid irons” are for any golfer seeking distance, height and forgiveness.  Each iron in the set is engineered to provide optimum, flight, forgiveness and feel, according to Cleveland.   The Altitudes have advanced internal weighting that promotes a low and deep center of gravity for both high launch and maximum distance. The company says the center of gravity is 13% lower and 121% deeper compared to a typical game-improvement iron resulting in iron shots that are easier to hit with proper trajectory. This is possible because of the hollow body construction that offers hybrid-like playability through each iron in the set.   Each club offers Face Forged® Technology that enhances ball speed and delivers feel. Cleveland says the Altitudes are designed for customization through a notch in the hosel that allows change in lie angle by three degrees up or down and loft by two degrees weaker or stronger. This is a significant acknowledgement by a company that higher handicap players can benefit from custom-fitting options, as well.   The 588 Altitude Irons are available in 3-SW for both men and women in graphite or steel shafts. Cleveland will begin shipping these new hybrid-irons November16, 2012.   Pre-order your set of the new 588 Altitude Irons at DGW today.
