Special-edition 2018 PGA Championship Nike Golf shoes

Published

on

Spotted on the course during practice rounds this week, Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy have been wearing PGA Championship special-edition Lunar Command 2 shoes with hits of Blue Camo on the sole and the Swoosh.

While it hasn’t been confirmed whether those particular shoes will be available, it does appear Nike Golf is releasing a special-edition Tour-Premiere golf shoe that has the same Blue Camo accents, although in an all-white shoe in a different style.

The shoes reportedly go on sale August 8 for $200.

What do you think about the Bellerive/PGA Championship shoes from Nike?

    Why do all Nike shoes buckle in the toe section instead of sitting and moving better like other brands (see the black shoe for reference). Almost like they give too much toe space. Admittedly I have narrower feet but they feel really awkward when I’ve tried them on.

      Too much toe space? There’s nearly no such thing in golf shoes. Most are toe huggers, except for Sketchers and True Linkswear.

      Jim, it just means you shouldn’t wear Nike. Simples. Why try? Nike makes ugly stuff anyway

    Looks like the white shoes have a wrap-around ‘kiltie’ covering the laces. The black shoes have exposed laces. What gives?!!

    I think those might be Nike Lunar Command 2 not Lunar Control 4, I could be wrong.

Check out the full thread and all of the photos here.

Here is what some of our members have been saying about Hoffman’s putter, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Meanmachinemoe: “Hoping this is a preview of his 2019 line-up so I won’t be tempted. UGLY!”
  • evansmar004: “The top is not good looking….but I love walking the Scotty dog”
  • cxx: “You guys are funny.  The only beauty in a putter is how many putts find the bottom of the cup.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “What is your favorite ‘Tour Issue’ club of all time?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from pmurph#3, who asks fellow members what their favourite Tour Issue club of all time is. Despite these clubs not featuring in your local golf store, it doesn’t stop our members from getting their hands on them, and in the thread, we see plenty of rare clubs mentioned.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mosesgolf: “The 300 Tour and then the R510 DF (no TP logo on toe underline half line) in respective order.  These two drivers imo kicked off the “Tour” craze. I still have the Adams “Peanut” hybrid which is the best hybrid I’ve ever played.”
  • 300_yard_drives: “Secret tour issue Callaway apex di and I still have mine. Asian Tour rep didn’t even know it existed. I have only seen it in one other person’s bag personally, and that was Jaime Sadlowski.”
  • cardoustie: “I gotta go with 510df, that to me started the whole tour issue thing. I did get a TI driver at one time … 580 xd tp IIRC, but I hooked it off the planet.  Must have had loads of hot melt in the heel.  And it wasn’t just me; even my +3 buddy couldn’t hit it straight.  Too bad as the feel was exceptional.”
  • cgasucks: “The Titleist 970 FW.  This is the one that Tiger used as his three-wood in his prime.  Very hard to get then…and very hard to get now.”

Wilson introduces super game improvement Staff D7 irons

Published

on

Wilson Golf has announced that 2019 will see the release of their new super game improvement Wilson Staff D7 distance irons.

The new Wilson Staff D7 distance irons will keep the aesthetics from the FG Tour V6 and C300 irons while integrating Wilson’s RE-AKT technology, which is designed to provide golfers with extra power.

Speaking with regards to the new irons, manager of Wilson Golf Innovation Jon Pergande, described precisely what the new clubs are set to offer golfers.

“The D7 line is our latest installment of game improvement irons that will give golfers increased distances on longer irons and precision with the shorter clubs. Our RE-AKT technology and ultra-thin responsive club-face increases ball speeds to help produce maximum distances, while the shorter clubs give golfers a greater feel and more distance control.”

Just how has Wilson Golf gone about constructing these new irons to achieve these goals?

Well, the Wilson Staff D7 long irons (4-7 iron) feature three rows of power holes, and will also contain Wilson’s thinnest club face ever, designed to provide golfers with both maximum distance and greater responsiveness off the club face.

The D7 short irons, on the other hand,  feature fewer power holes and optimized weighting with the aim of providing maximum feel and greater distance control.

The irons are equipped with Recoil Series Graphite Shafts, which will be available in A, R and S flexes at 65 grams. KBS Tour 80 Steel shafts are also available in R and S flexes.

The D7 irons will be available to purchase from retailers and Wilson.com on January 17, while the pre-sale begins on January 10. The retail price for the D7 Steel irons is $599, while the graphite irons will cost $699.
