Wow cool to see Nick playing again. Do you happen to know what his status on tour is? Medical Exemption?

Just amazing to see how many of these Nike guys get vokeys, M2's, and scotty's in to the bag immediately. Seems like the irons have been spread out a little more but wow!

Nike was obviously full of crap when claiming that no staffers are contractually obligated to play their clubs when several staffers empty their bags at the first opportunity.

Don't discount the fact that Nike no longer has a tour van for equipment repairs/changes and this may very well be the reason why so many are making quick changes.

I have also noticed this, I think they probably prefer a smaller 5-wood head.

Per Greg, Nike Tour van is at Safeway and will be at PGA tournaments at minimum til the end of the year.

This is also the start of a new season. Why change out your bag right at the end of season while trying to chase down a title? Stick with what you know, until the right time to change.

I have also noticed this, I think they probably prefer a smaller 5-wood head.

A little smaller and, for me, a slightly more workable 5 wood. The m2 in the 3 wood is a rocket but I hit it slightly too far in the 5. Heard a few other guys say the same thing.

My question is if this is the start of the wrap around season, do Nike staffers have to carry a Nike bag through the rest of the calendar year?

Seems as though they all are which would leave me to believe the Nike contracts run from 1 January through 31 December.

Correct me if I'm mistaken.
