Tiger to wear new Nike TW ’17 golf shoes at Hero World Challenge

Published

on

Tiger Woods will be wearing Nike’s new TW ’17 golf shoe this week at the Hero World Challenge, which is designed to accomodate the golfer’s revamped golf swing.

According to Nike, Woods has been working on the design of the shoe with Tobie Hatfield, Nike’s Senior Director of Athlete Innovation, since July 2015. The inspiration for its design was Woods’ new swing, in which Woods has shifted his dominance from his left leg to his right leg.

“This shoe is an absolutely integral part of my return to the sport I love and have missed so much,” Woods says. “Nike really got in the zone with me. I knew Tobie and I were on to something special back when I tried on the first prototype. I feel supreme support from this shoe which leads to the utmost confidence when I step onto the course.”

The most intriguing part of the shoe’s design is what Nike calls its “duo’s strapping system concept,” which was added to keep Woods “secure and locked down in his shoe.” According to Nike, the TW ’17 is the only golf shoe Woods has worn since undergoing two back surgeries in the fall of 2015.

The TW ’17 will be available in Spring 2017.

    I just got to the point that I could stomach a Nike TW Golf shoe. I bought the last two models. Now this…..? Oh well back to fJ or Adidas. No way this is the shoe they are going to try and sell!

    They look like the shoes that you see the mall walkers wearing.

    Pretty sure it’s Tinker Hatfield. Unless Tobie is his less successful brother.

      I’m with you. I am pulling for him as a golfer. Just don’t try to sell me anything. His credibility is worthless now.

    Wow! This injury is apparently far more serious than I ever thought it was.

    I seriously think they are trying to get Tiger to quit Nike so they can stop the bleeding lol These are the worst things I have ever seen! What happened to focus group testing? Under Armour and Footjoy will be licking their chops at the site of these lol….

      Have you seen UA shoes? If they want my dad to wear them, they’re doing things the right way…

        I tough the tempo hybrids we’re quite nice. I like the sporty casual look and fit of them but to each there own right. These are moon boot though I think we can agree on that. Cheers

      Footjoy will continue to control their market share. Undar Amour is quite a ways from making a shoe that is worth while. To be fair, shoes are not their strength. Much the same way that Nike couldn’t make clubs.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
