Nike Golf’s Tour Performance Apparel Line Amplifies Excellence

Nike Golf’s Tour Performance Apparel Line Amplifies Excellence

-The Spring 2012 Tour Performance collection marries style with visible technology to provide every advantage in every condition-

BEAVERTON, Ore. (March 27, 2012) – With the relentless pursuit of performance and innovation, Nike Golf maintains the standard of excellence with the introduction of its Tour Performance line for men and women.  A balance of industry-best basic styles and seasonally driven innovations, this line serves as the locker room for the competitive golfer.

Nike Golf’s Tour Performance apparel embodies Nike’s iconic and instantly recognizable performance innovation.  Focusing on moisture management, cooling, and stretch technologies, this line provides exceptional Lightweight Performance for golf athletes.
With a distinct attitude, Nike’s Tour Performance pieces meet consumer insights through relevant product styling and attributes.  The line delivers every advantage in every condition through expanded style choices to match outfits to occasions.

“This line is seriously full of athlete-driven innovation and visible technology– just what Nike is all about,” said Doug Reed, Nike Golf’s Global Category Business Director for Apparel and Footwear.  “It’s performance, amplified”

The new Tour Performance line brings on the heat with Nike energy colors and core Tour block fit.  Branding also remains classic Nike Golf with a small Swoosh on the left sleeve as well as on the back.  The expanded menu of style choices extends Nike Golf’s dominant leadership position as #1 in class innovation and performance.

Highlights from the Nike Tour Performance line are the men’s Fractured Chest Stripe polo (MSRP $70) and the Modern Color Block polo (MSRP $60).  These men’s polos are constructed of Nike Dri-FIT which includes UV protection and added stretch to ease the golf swing.  The Plaid Pant (MSRP $85) and Fashion Plaid Short (MSRP $70) are constructed of Nike Dri-FIT allowing the athlete to not only look good on the course but also feel good in performance fabrics.

For women, the Color Wrap polo (MSRP $70) and the Convertible Skort (MSRP $95) provide women a comfortable, chic and practical outfit for the course.  The Convertible Skort (patent pending) is reversible from a plaid to a solid and comes with a twill short to provide women with three looks in one.

The Nike Tour Performance Apparel line also features the Tiger Woods Collection, representing the “performance modifier” to its core Tour Performance business.  If Nike’s Tour Performance is the “game day” uniform, the Tiger Woods Collection will serve as the “Bowl Day” point of view.

The Tiger Woods Collection brings the best in innovation to meet the needs of the game’s most athletic golfer.  Using Tiger’s insights, Nike set out to create lighter garments with more stretch.  Cutting edge material and garment engineering shaved 20% off the weight of Tiger’s polo and pant combination. This ground-breaking innovation re-engineers the traditional Sunday Red outfit into the Modern Ultra-Light Uniform.

The TW Ultra polo (MSRP $90) highlights the Tiger Woods Collection.  This Dri-FIT polo is extremely lightweight (2.9 oz.) and features a self-fabric perforated collar for added breathability while also reducing weight. The TW Ultra Light pant (MSRP $125) is a Dri-FIT performance pant with uncompromising craftsmanship and tailoring.  Another new element to the Tiger Woods Collection is providing the consumer with the Swoosh on the left chest of the polo and the TW logo on the center back.

The smartly designed Tour Performance line and Tiger Woods Collection stick to Nike’s core advantage of bringing the best innovations to every athlete at every level.


Located at NIKE’s World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Nike Golf designs and markets golf equipment, apparel, balls, footwear, bags and accessories worldwide. Nike Golf is passionately dedicated to ushering in the future of this great sport by developing ground-breaking innovations that enable and inspire athletes to become better.  For more information on Nike Golf, visit our Web site at http://www.nikegolf.com.  To follow Nike Golf on Twitter visit http://www.twitter.com/nikegolf and to become a fan on Facebook go to http://www.facebook.com/nikegolf .  To view Nike Golf videos subscribe to our You Tube channel at http://www.youtube.com/nikegolf .  Editors and journalists in the U.S. seeking editorial information and downloadable images, visit http://www.nikegolf.com/presscenter .  For international journalists, please contact Nike Golf’s public relations representative in respective countries for information.

Odyssey Debuts New Metal-X Putters

Odyssey Debuts New Metal-X Putters

Putter Line Features Newest Insert Technology With Dual-layered, Textured Insert

CARLSBAD, Calif., March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/—Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY) today announced the April 13 retail availability of the new Odyssey® Metal-X™ line of insert putters, representing the latest in the brand’s storied history of game-changing innovations surrounding the most important club in the bag. With a lightweight aluminum face in front of a urethane backer layer, Metal-X putters provide golfers the crisp feedback of a metal striking surface with the benefits of a softer feel for optimal touch. Aesthetically pleasing with a sleek midnight black finish, the putters also offer a textured face that delivers a truer, more consistent roll.

“The idea for the new Metal-X putters came from working with several Tour players who liked the look and performance of our putters, but wanted the feel of a more metallic face,” said Austie Rollinson, Principal Designer for Odyssey Putters. “We took their feedback and decided to create an aluminum face with a urethane backing layer in order to maintain a lightweight face that helps us optimize the weight distribution in our designs.”

However, in an effort to improve feel and performance, Rollinson added another key feature. The lightweight aluminum outer layer on the Metal-X putters has a face pattern unlike any other putter in golf, with oval depressions that create a mechanical lock with the ball’s dimples at impact. This mechanical lock creates more friction, which delivers a lower launch with optimized topspin for reduced skidding and the truest roll in the game through steady ball deceleration. The urethane inner layer provides soft touch and saves weight to optimize performance. Together, the two layers combine for crisp responsiveness and sound.
“The texture on the face does two things—it reduces surface contact and increases edge contact between the face and the ball. Reducing the surface contact during impact helps us create a solid, yet soft, sound at impact. That sound equates to feel, so it’s a great feeling insert,” Rollinson explained. “I came up with the oval design on the aluminum insert to also create a lot of edges, which increases the friction between the face and the ball and helps create a very smooth and consistent roll.”
Taking specific feedback from Tour players, Rollinson incorporated a midnight black finish to increase durability and reduce glare on sunny days. First introduced on professional tours in early February, Metal-X putters have already been put in play by numerous players, including PGA Tour pros J.B. Holmes and Danny Lee. In fact, in the very first week of its availability on the European Tour, 13 players put various Metal-X models in play.
“Feedback from Metal-X’s first few weeks on the world’s tours has been phenomenal,” said Chris Koske, Global Director of the Odyssey Business. “Every tour professional we have spoken to has told us not only how good the insert feels, but also about how the ball seems to hug the green.”
Each Metal-X putter comes standard with a Lamkin® 3GEN® Pistol Grip, made of Lamkin’s proprietary 3GEN material, which is their softest synthetic rubber compound and reduces vibration without dulling the feel of the putt. The material allows golfers to keep their forearms relaxed, apply very light grip pressure, and minimize hand tension for smooth, consistent strokes.
The Metal-X putters will be available on April 13 in a wide variety of models. Core models (#1, #6, #7, #8, #9, and Rossie) will be available for a new product introduction retail price of $149 ; 2-Ball and D.A.R.T. models will be available for a new product introduction retail price of $179; and Belly and Long Metal-X putters will be available for a new product retail price of $189. (The D.A.R.T. and #7 Metal-X models will be available in both Belly and Long putters, while the #1 will be available in a Belly model.)

Garda Teams Up as Title Sponsor with Rising LPGA Star and Quebec Native Maude-Aimée LeBlanc in Drive to the Top

LPGA Rookie’s Bright Future and Strong Ambition Matches Company’s Determination to Reach No. 1 Ranking in Security and Cash Logistics Sector

Garda World Security Corporation (“Garda”) (TSX:GW), one of the leading Security Solutions, Cash Logistics and Global Risk Consulting firms in the world, announced today its title sponsorship of Maude-Aimée LeBlanc – a Quebec native who burst onto the LPGA scene in December 2011. Ms. LeBlanc, an All-American college player who led Purdue University to win the 2010 NCAA Team Championship, turned professional in June 2011.

“As a young professional golfer, Maude-Aimée’s career trajectory mirrors the history of our company – an up-and-coming young player who has established herself among the best in the game and who is on the way to the top,” said Stephan Cretier, President & CEO. “Maude-Aimée will achieve her goals in the game of golf, while Garda will reach those same levels in the world of security services, cash logistics and global risk consulting.”

Ms. LeBlanc, 23, began playing golf at age five when her father introduced her to the sport. By age nine, she was already winning golf tournaments. At 13, Ms. LeBlanc realized that with hard work, determination and focus on her performance, she could achieve great success in the sport she loves. With a scholarship from Purdue University, she won the 2006 International Junior Orange Bowl and the 2006 Canadian Junior Championship. She was named first team All-American by Golfweek; second team All-American by NGCA, and earned the Mary Fossum Award for lowest stroke average in the Big Ten. She was also first team All-Big Ten for the third-year straight and was Purdue’s top-finisher in the national championship.

“Garda is a great Canadian company that’s growing internationally and is, like me, performance driven and committed to excellence” Ms. LeBlanc said. “With their support as my main sponsor, I can focus on achieving the goals I have set for myself – being among the best golfers in the world – as the company strives to do the same in the security services and cash logistics industry.”

Since its founding 16 years ago, Garda has grown into a major global force in providing security services and cash logistics solutions to businesses and governments around the world. The company focuses on establishing security platforms and continually improving them with a combination of business development, operational excellence, and focused entrepreneurial leadership. In late 2011, Garda established its U.S. Cash Logistics headquarters in Boca Raton, FL.

Garda (TSX:GW) is a global provider of Security Solutions, Cash Logistics and Global Risk Consulting. With headquarters in Montreal, Canada, the firm’s 45,000 dedicated professionals, among the most highly qualified and best-trained in the industry, serve clients in countries throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Founded in 2005 by Stephen Boccieri, the company’s popular Heavy Putter collection and Control Series line of full-swing products were the first to integrate counterweight principals. This unique approach to club design is proven to benefit golfers of all skill levels, as strategically placed weight in the butt-end of the shaft produces a higher balance point to promote smoother, more repeatable swings from driver through putter.
Boccieri Golf equipment has played a key role in victories on the PGA, European, Champions, Nationwide, Asian, Canadian and European Challenge Tours. In addition, its products have received vast critical acclaim from a variety of respected golf and lifestyle media outlets.
