Nike Golf Introduces the Method Midnight Putters: New Shapes, New Look, Proven Method Technology

Nike Golf Introduces the Method Midnight Putters: New Shapes, New Look, Proven Method Technology

– Polymetal Groove Technology with a New Dark Chrome Finish-

BEAVERTON, Ore. (May 15, 2012 ) – There’s a new addition to the successful Nike Method putter franchise and it has a dark side.  Nike Golf is introducing the Nike Method Midnight putter that features Nike’s revolutionary polymetal groove technology, which has been instrumental in the 34 wins by Nike athletes on the Professional Tours worldwide.

The Nike Method Midnight putter is available in new milled head shapes with a dark chrome finish and will be offered in three new models:  Method Midnight 006, 007, and 008.  All three models rely on polymetal face groove technology, which combine steel and polymer.

The ground-breaking Method putter technology was born of innovation and fueled by the demands of Nike Golf’s Tour athletes.  With major-winning technology, this putter delivers the roll, feel, and sound necessary for clutch putts in big moments.

“The multidimensional face is the primary technology of these products – everything revolves around this,” said David Franklin, Master Model Maker.

The revolutionary and visibly distinctive polymetal groove technology generates a forward roll almost immediately after impact for the kind of accuracy and consistency that is demanded by Tour professionals. While most traditional steel faced putters start the ball with backspin causing the ball to initially bounce, the polymetal groove technology starts the ball with forward spin to minimize bounce and keep putts on line.

The prototypes of the Method Midnight 006 and 007 already have proven Tour success.  Nike athletes Lucas Glover and Stewart Cink both used the Method Midnight 006 head shape to win the 2009 U.S. Open and Open Championship, respectively, and Michelle Wie’s first LPGA victory came with the Method Midnight 007 head shape.

Nike Golf’s Method Midnight putters ($323.99 MSRP/$269.99 MAP) will be available June 15, 2012 in all three models. The Method Midnight 006 will also be available in a left-handed version.

Faldo Golf Institute Hosts Wounded Soldiers From U.S. & U.K.

Faldo Golf Institute Hosts Wounded Soldiers From U.S. & U.K. for Week-Long Training Experience at Marriott’s Grande Vista Resort in Orlando

Unique Golf School Program, Now in its Third Year, Supports Rehabilitation for Wounded Soldiers from the U.K.’s On-Course Foundation, as well as Orlando-based U.S. Wounded Warriors

ORLANDO, Fla. – May 17, 2012…The acclaimed Faldo Golf Institute (FGI) by Marriott, one of the nation’s leading golf schools created by legendary Six-Time Major Champion Sir Nick Faldo, recently hosted a group of wounded soldiers from the U. S. and U.K., providing a week-long golfing experience highlighted by instruction and on-course play at Marriott’s Grande Vista Resort in Orlando, Fla.

As golf has become a therapeutic part of the rehabilitation for many wounded war veterans, certified golf instructors from the Faldo Golf Institute have created a unique golf school program for the past three years, working closely with wounded soldiers from the U.K.-based On Course Foundation, as well as a group of Orlando-based U.S. Wounded Warriors.  The experience provides a week of camaraderie and expert golf instruction, while using the game of golf as a morale boost for injured veterans/soldiers.

The On-Course Foundation was created to help wounded war veterans from the U.K., providing an opportunity for members of the armed forces who have been seriously injured in combat to participate in activities on the golf course.  All members have major disabilities, and while some members have played the game prior to their injuries, others have very limited experience. 
“This is the third consecutive year that we have hosted the On-Course Foundation, along with a group of dedicated local Wounded Warriors, and it is truly one of the most rewarding weeks for our entire staff,” said Andy Mitchell, Director of Golf Operations, Marriott’s Grande Vista.  “Bringing together this group of heroes from the U.S. and the U.K. for a week of golf activities, and watching them interact on the golf course and create lifelong friendships was truly inspiring.”

Faldo Golf Institute by Marriott combines the teaching philosophy of the legendary Sir Nick Faldo with the world class service and hospitality of Marriott International to provide a full-service golf school experience perfectly suited for golfers of all ages and abilities.  From low-handicap elite golfers seeking a competitive advantage, to newcomers to the game seeking an introductory program that is matched to their needs, the Faldo Golf Institute offers distinct learning programs for everyone.

CHAMP ZARMA FLYTEE USED BY WINNER OF WELLS FARGO CHAMPIONSHIP

CHAMP ZARMA FLYTEE USED BY WINNER OF WELLS FARGO CHAMPIONSHIP

Blaze Orange Model Propels Young Star to First PGA Tour Victory

(MARLBOROUGH, MA) – CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide – The World Leader in Sport Cleat Technology® and maker of innovative CHAMP spikes, high-performance golf tees and accessories – confirms the winner of the Wells Fargo Championship relied on a blaze orange colored Zarma FLYTee en route to securing his first PGA Tour title.

Featuring a six-pronged head and shallow cup to reduce friction while promoting increased distance and accuracy, the FLYTee is used by a large and growing number of the world’s best players. During the competition at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC, the champion averaged more than 300 yards in driving distance and tied-for-second in driving accuracy.

“Our spikes have long been recognized as the #1 Brand on Tour, and now our FLYTee is rapidly gaining a loyal following,” says Harris MacNeill, President and CEO of CHAMP/MacNeill Engineering Worldwide. “Because players at this level are extremely particular about their equipment, more and more are recognizing our tees as the quickest, easiest way to boost performance.”

All Zarma FLYTee models are constructed using a market-proven bio-agent additive created by ECM Biofilms, Inc. This enables microorganisms to metabolize the plastic into humus, an organic matter which benefits the environment.

Earlier this season, CHAMP unveiled the new MyHite FLYTee, which features a series of colored bands around the stem, allowing golfers to always place the ball at a consistent height. This unique design maximizes consistency by ensuring repeatable performance with every swing.

Beyond the scoring and environmental advantages, these tees are five times more durable than traditional wooden offerings and help facilities dramatically improve course operations, appearance and profitability by reducing tee consumption, decreasing tee litter and lowering purchasing expenses.

With more than 100 active distributors, CHAMP is the world’s largest manufacturer of replaceable spikes. The company produces more than 140 million spikes annually and is the dominant global brand in football, soccer, golf, baseball, cricket, rugby and other sports.

The Nike Swoosh Dominates in Europe with Victories from Francesco Molinari and Carly Booth

The Nike Swoosh Dominates in Europe with Victories from Francesco Molinari and Carly Booth

-Molinari and Booth Secure Wins with 14 Nike Clubs in the Bag Including the new Nike VR_S Driver-

BEAVERTON, Ore. (May 7, 2012)– The Swoosh was atop the leaderboard in Europe this weekend as Nike Golf athletes Francesco Molinari and Carly Booth secure wins at the Reale Seguros Open de Espana and the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open, respectively.

Using the new Nike VR_S Driver, a prototype Nike Method Core putter and the revolutionary Nike 20XI X golf ball, Molinari shot a final round 65, the best round on the European Tour this week.  Molinari, who is currently fourth (80%) in greens in regulation on the European PGA Tour, won by a three-shot margin to secure his third European Tour Victory.

“I just went out today knowing that if the putter was a little bit hotter I had a chance,” Molinari said.  “So I just tried to stay calm and I got off to a great start and hit the ball very well. So everything felt easy, even if it wasn’t.”

On the Ladies European Tour, Booth grabbed her first career title, becoming the youngest winner of the Scottish Open.  The 19-year-old Scottish teenager, who described her victory as a “dream come true,” also used the new Nike VR_S Driver, a Method Putter and the 20XI X golf ball for her win.  This triumph comes just three weeks after her recent victory on the Ladies European Tour Access Series Developmental Tour.

Molinari and Booth’s respective victories bring to 33 the number of global wins with the Nike Method Putter.  Generating more distance for every shot, the Nike VR_S is an extension of the original VR line, which has more than 85 worldwide professional wins including three major championships.  On the body, both Molinari and Booth wore Nike Golf Apparel and Nike Golf Footwear.

Club Glove Ultra-Premium TRS Ballistic Luggage Trusted by World No. 1 Luke Donald
and More Than 100 Other PGA Tour Superstars

American Craftsmanship, Durability and Stylish Design Leads to Rapid Adoption

(HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA) – Club Glove® – a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of premium travel bags, golf bags, club covers and accessories – confirms its ultra-premium TRS Ballistic luggage is used week after week by more than 100 PGA Tour stars, including Hunter Mahan, Bill Haas, Justin Rose, Nick Watney, Webb Simpson and world No.1 Luke Donald.

Designed for the affluent golfer or globetrotter, each piece features U.S. woven INVISTA CORDURA® 1050 denier Nylon Ballistic fabric, which offers double the abrasion resistance and four times the tear resistance of other premium materials. When used as a set, the collection showcases Club Glove’s renowned, patent-pending Train Reaction system that drastically reduces the amount of effort needed to pull or push gear by creating a perfect center of gravity to make bags feel weightless.

“The rapid adoption of the TRS Ballistic line is reminiscent of how our Last Bag quickly became the most used golf travel cover among Tour players more than a decade ago,” says company founder Jeff Herold. “The bottom line is that these guys travel for a living and they rely on products of the absolute best quality to ensure their belongings arrive unscathed.”

Also among the large and growing roster of Tour players who have “Gone Ballistic” are Kyle Stanley, Matt Kuchar, Camilo Villegas, Johnson Wagner, Zach Johnson, Mark Wilson, Davis Love III, Chris DiMarco, Jonathan Byrd, David Toms, Scott Stallings, Charles Howell III, Martin Laird, Sean O’Hair, Mark Wilson, Justin Leonard, Colin Montgomerie, Ricky Barnes, Carl Pettersson and many more. Other celebrity athletes endorsing TRS Ballistic include Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz of the Boston Red Sox.

The durable, stylish and Made-in-the-USA collection consists of a carry-on ($699), check-in ($750) and XL check-in ($799) bags and is also available as a set ($2,248). Club Glove recently announced the addition of a stylish two-tone black and bronze color scheme to compliment the original, category-defining collection.

Amazing functional capabilities of this unique collection include:
Patented, Ultra-Durable Wheel Base and Retractable Handle – engineered to provide ideal balance and convenience
Intelligent Design – premium zippers, easy-to-open flap, internal webbing with superior tensile strength
Packing Modules – perfect compartmentalization of clothing, toiletries, shoes and other items
