Nike Golf’s new Flyknit Chukkas, polos and… tights?

Published

on

Nike has rolled out a slew of new golfing apparel — including new polos, tights and joggers — and a golf-specific version of the company’s popular Flyknit Chukkas. The Chukkas were created in 2013, and popularized during the Sochi Olympics after appearing on medal-winners’ feet.

Like the original Chukkas, the golf versions have a lightweight, form-fitting, one-piece upper for comfort. They also have “Flywire cables” for added support.

The new releases, however, are designed with golf-specific soles for extra traction in the toe and the heel, and the upper is “skinned” with a layer of thermoplastic urethane (TPU) for waterproofing.

The Nike Golf FLyknit Chukkas are available at nike.com for $190 in two colorways (black/white and racer blue/white) for males.

Nike Golf’s new Spring/Summer 16 apparel line includes three different collar designs — blade, roll and classic. Here’s a look at the three different designs, which are each available in standard and “modern fit” for a slimming look.

Also, here’s a look at the Nike Golf Hyperwarm tights, which Brooks Koepka says, “are good for recovery.”

GolfTights

Athletes in basketball and football commonly sport a similar look during competition, so why not golf? Nike’s Golf Hyperwarm tights are designed to provide compression, body temperature regulation and an “added layer of warmth,” according to Nike. They’re “made with a high-stretch Dri-Fit material” to keep golfers dry, says Nike.

“I absolutely love wearing the tights when I practice and workout,” said Nike endorser Scott Pinckney. “I feel more athletic and my legs always feel better after I practice when I wear them.”

We’ll take his word for it.

Lastly, a look at a group photo of Nike-sponsored pro golfers showing off Nike’s new Spring/Summer 16 line.

Do I spot joggers? It would appear that Rickie Fowler has started a trend.

    Umm… I think compression pants for golf may be a bridge too far. This stuff looks ridiculous. I’m 30 not 75. I’d much prefer to dress like Watson (Tom not Bubba) than looks like Keopka, Finau, or whoever the other member of that skater gang are above.

    I have absolutely no opinion on this, positive or negative.

    Have been waiting for Flyknit for golf and it looks like I will be waiting still until I can afford them next season on sale? If you can afford them, give them a chance! I Love the Flyknit running shoes(3.0) and I’ve played mine in a few afternoon rounds but they will slip out on loose dirt so these Chukka spikeless are going to be fun to meet! My Flyknits wear like socks and keep the whole foot active, comfortable, and sensing the ground like feet radars on the course and the greens where it’s especially useful.
    My FootJoys will always get the most action over my Pumas and Adidas but these Flyknits may be my go to spikeless, Next Year….

      Man, I just got the flyknit golf shoes last week and I can’t believe how good they feel over the ball. Shot my rest round in 3 years first time I wore them. I was hesitant to spend the $ at first, but absolutely 100% worth it for me.

    Tights??,, you mean Yoga pants,,, for Men? Let me guess, you don’t use underwear with them because your,,, underwear lines would show? And I bet, that soon, your shorts that you wear over your,,, tights are going to feel uncomfortable too, so you’ll start to show up at the golf course wearing just your cute Tights, then when you bend over to pick up the putt you just made the rest of us will need a bucket to vomit.
    Come on !! gives us a break.

      Your fantasy that you’ve just played out for us makes me believe you’re a little too excited about these new trends.

      Clearly you’ve never tried on compression clothing. I’m curious to see how old you are. Too Old for your opinion to matter is probably around the right age.

      I agree. Maybe wearing them under shorts will look lots better. Not to mention real health benefits to your legs.

    Women wear tights. Thank you.

    I don’t mind having players wear these in practice rounds or even underneath their pants but hopefully not in professional tournaments. I like to see the continued classic look and keep some of the traditions of the game.

    Cheers

    The Chukkas look fine. Not my cup of tea but that’s ok. If it gets millennials more interested in the game then I love what Nike is doing there. The joggers, though…please make it stop!! I’m all for fashion forward and such but these are just bad. As for the tights/shorts on the practice range – I’ve never personally done that but I think it’s a great idea. It is, after all, practice so you should be comfortable. Save the pants and polos for the course.

    Not for me, but I honestly don’t care if guys wear this. I’ve seen much worse from guys who consider themselves purists

    I’m in love with those Chukkas. Too bad they’re way out of my price range 🙁

    WhIle the skinny pants aren’t for me, tights are incredibly comfortable, and I’d love to see that style break out so I can wear my golf shorts and tights in the future instead of khakis or pants that I only wear to play golf.

      I’ve been doing this for years…its super comfortable and really versatile, as it wicks away sweat in the heat and keeps you cool in the winter…but I’ve also never cared about people’s opinions of how I dress, and I think some people might be too entrenched in their pleated slacks (gross). Try it out, just please, for the love of God, always wear some gym shorts over top.

      Waiting for the style to change so you can wear what you want.

      Where are you posting from, North Korea?

        Did you read the first 6 words of my post? I never have and never will care what the ‘trends’ are, I do my own thing. Plenty of us have been way ahead of this, but your reading comprehension is clearly inhibiting you from understanding my post.

      Ditto… They ARE very comfortable and to each his own. If you’re not into that, that’s OK too. Just don’t go blowing that “tradition” smoke!

Zozo Championship Tour Truck Report: Phil’s new driver and 2-wood, Tiger testing a new 3-wood

Published

on

Slower week than most at Sherwood but still a couple of nuggets—and who doesn’t love a Tiger/Phil equipment update?

Callaway

Phil Mickelson: After his (two drivers in the bag) win on the PGA Tour Champions, Lefty went full gearhead and continued to test not only the new Apex MB ’21 irons (6-PW) but also put a 47.5-inch Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero in the bag. The (low-lofted) 9-degree head, set now at 8 degrees (swing weight at D7) will be equipped with either a Project X HZURDUS Smoke Green 60 6.5 or a KBS TD 60G C5 TX.

In addition, Phil is bringing back the 2-wood having put a 43.5-inch, 12.5-degree “old school” X Hot 3 Deep. The idea with both is distance gain (non-shocker) for example on Tour there are a number of bunkers, forced carries at the 300+ clip and to be able to fly by those on command is a huge advantage. Dispersion will suffer a bit in this scenario, but that’s what the 2-wood is for. The new driver set up got Phil about 8 mph of additional ball speed and on avg a 310 carry. The 2 wood is to fill the larger gap created by the driver—this new fairway metal gives Phil about 280-285 carry.

Ping 

Tony Finau: Ping G425 LST (9 @7.5 Big-) with Diamana D+ 70TX tipped 1.5

Andrew Landry: Ping G425 LST (9 @8.75, flat) with Fujikura Ventus Blue 6X (46 Inches)

Joaquin Niemann: New Ping G425 7-wood (20.5 @20) in the bag with Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8X (20.5, 40.5 inches).

Titleist

Slow week, no major updates to report beyond Aaron Dill making 9,000 wedges for the players in early Augusta prep…

TaylorMade

Tiger Woods is testing a SIM Ti 3-wood with a Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana D+ 70 TX shaft. The 15-degree 3-wood is set at 14.25 and is on the upright setting. (42.5, D4, Golf Pride BCT 58R). Won’t know if it goes in play until tomorrow tee off…

There are rare, and then there are really rare covers and this falls squarely in the really rare category. It’s priced according but would make a great addition to any collection.

Were used to seeing rare and hard to find, but it’s not often Ping releases something that captures attention like this. The bag is new with tags and is being offered at a great deal!
