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.

PXG introduces high-MOI, adjustable Operator putter

Published

on

Joining the Drone and Gunboat on the high-MOI mallet-style putter end of the spectrum, PXG is launching its highest MOI putter to date: the Operator.

With a maximum head mass of 400 grams, depending on weight adjustments, the Operator features a soft billet-milled 304 stainless steel face and a body made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum.

PXG made the Operator for those seeking advanced customization and maximum forgiveness. Multiple sole weights, available in increments of 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g, can be used to adjust the overall head mass.

Regarding the name: “Operator” is the specific term for Delta’s operational personnel, although in recent years it has become a term for almost all U.S. military special forces.

The putter is available in three models.

Operator

The double-bend hosel style creates a full shaft of offset with a face-balanced hang angle. Built for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Operator H

The hosel neck is heel-shafted with a half shaft of offset and mid toe-down hang angle. Built for players with more face rotation in their stroke.

Operator P

The plumber’s neck shaft creates a full shaft of offset with a slightly toe-down hang angle. Built for players with a moderate amount of face rotation in their stroke.

All Operator models feature PXG’s proprietary TPE honeycomb sole insert and a TPE insert behind the face to dampen vibrations and enhance feel.

$450 retail.
