Golf channel has it on now.  Said he will play the new covert driver,and that his deal is for everything Nike. From head to toe,and even accessories. Ball,tees,gloves,etc. He will play the Method putter.


-- Driver: Nike VR_S Covert Tour, 10.5 degrees, neutral position
-- 3-wood: Nike VR Pro Limited Edition, 15 degrees
-- 5-wood: Nike VR Pro Limited Edition, 19 degrees
-- Irons (3-PW): Nike VR Pro Blades (3-PW)
-- Wedges: Nike VR Pro (54, 60 degrees)
-- Putter: Nike Method 006 Prototype
-- Ball: Nike 20XI X
-- Apparel: Nike Golf Tour Performance Collection
-- Footwear: Nike Lunar Control

Sorry no pics,and if this is in wrong section. I am watching it now,and he is going through his bag.


It is even showing the new commercial with him and Tiger that is going to be released this week.

I just updated cause Sports illustrated just asked his ball and driver specs. Also,to note,a guy just asked if he could go back to the Scotty and he said he is not talking contract specifics. So looks as if his Scotty is out in the pasture for good.

In the commercial it looks like Tiger was not gaming the new Covert driver, it also appeared to be a different shaft as it looked completely red. Who knows what we can read into this because it's just a commercial but I thought it was worth pointing out.

At least we know the 20XI-X is a winning ball.

http://www.pgatour.c...ell-henley.html

Quote

His score of 24-under 256 set the record for the lowest total score at the Sony Open. In the process, Henley became the first player on the PGA TOUR to win with Nike’s new 20XI X golf ball.

Henley used Nike’s 20XI X last season on the Web.com Tour but decided to switch to the latest version, for his first event of 2013 because he felt the new ball, with its larger RZN core, went farther and felt softer around the greens.

I expect the method putter will see a sales bump.  The covert already has some good buzz going. Maybe another driver can take TayorMade's spot as number 1 in sales.

I took his answer on the Scotty the exact opposite. By refusing to answer the question, to me that means that he has that flexibility. Of course he is NEVER going to admit, especially his press conference and probably has to keep the method in play for some time. But I wouldn't be suprised to see the Scotty before the year is out.
