Our top-27 favorite Tiger Woods-Nike equipment photos, in honor of their 27-year partnership



Tiger Woods and the Swoosh  – an iconic duo that helped changed the sport of golf forever ­– are no longer. After a 27-year partnership, Woods and Nike Golf officially parted ways, as confirmed in a post to Woods’ social media platforms on January 8, 2024.

Actually, as far as golf clubs and golf balls go, Woods’ equipment agreement with Nike Golf ended in 2016, when Nike’s golf division got out of the hard goods industry entirely. Although he was an equipment free agent for a brief period of time, Woods then signed a deal in 2017 with TaylorMade Golf to play its equipment, and Woods continues to be a TaylorMade equipment staffer today.

That being said, Woods and the Swoosh logo had quite a run together in the golf equipment world, which is cause for celebration.

In honor of Woods and Nike’s 27 year partnership, here are’s favorite 27 in-hand equipment photos, in no particular order, from 2011-2017.

    My Method 001 putter is the best putter I’ve ever used. The Vapor Pro Combo irons are as good as any iron I’ve ever played. They are not distance irons. They are precision irons that feel great. The VR Pro wedges are as good as any wedge I’ve used in 50 years of playing the game. I still game them all as well as a Vapor Fly driver, which isn’t the longest, but I hit fairways with it and manage to shoot around par. Nike made great clubs. No wonder former Hogan players signed with them. How many majors were won with Nike clubs?

    Nike had a couple of decent clubs, however in general their golf equipment was not good to say the least.I won’t be missing any of their equipment. 😉

Spotted: 2024 Fujikura Ventus Blue shaft on tour



We got a sneak peek at the new Ventus Blue shaft from Fujikura a few weeks ago, and we are now seeing out on tour for the best players in the world to test.

This week at the Genesis Invitational, the crew from Fujikura is in attendance and excited for the new shaft to make its debut. The new Ventus Blue shaft will have a very similar profile to the current Ventus Blue and should offer players launch and spin numbers that are comparable. What Fujikura has improved is the internal technology, VeloCore, that has made the Ventus and Ventus TR shafts so popular on tour and in fittings all over the world.

We asked Fujikura’s Spencer Reynolds about the new Ventus Blue and VeloCore Plus:

“The key to this one is really new technology…This will be our first profile to feature what we call VeloCore Plus. What we did is we took the original profile of the original Blue we launched…back in 2018 on global tours. So over the last handful of years, we’ve learned a lot about material integration and material layouts and kind of where we can push the envelope a little bit.

“And we wanted to keep a similar profile that gave similar feel, launch, and spin numbers but we wanted to tighten the dispersion and increase the speed. We figured out how to do that and we kinda reengineered VeloCore a bit. We took the key elements…full -length pitch material and then the 40-ton material…we took those key elements and enhanced some of those. We…increased the tonnage and increased the strength of those materials.

“Then we added a third material as a bias core to essentially give it a really solid feel. I think it’s what we’re left with is a profile that bumps up speed, increases accuracy, tightens dispersion, and has incredible feel to it. So what we found in player testing was increases in speed, and a lot of the feedback we got from feel was it just feels tighter than the original — not stiffer, still kind of the same bend profile, softer in the handle, stiff in the mid, ultra-stiff in the tip — but just an overall tighter feeling to the shaft.

“So we tested it. We’re psyched about it. Obviously excited to have it out here on tour, and we’re ready to rock and roll.”

This new Ventus Blue even sports a new matte blue paint that is lighter than the original and has a slightly different “Ventus” text near the center of the shaft. Fujikura also made some slight tweaks to the Ventus logo near the grip, adding some different micro-texture to the silver graphic.

This new Ventus Blue with VeloCore Plus should be out to Fujikura dealers at the end of February.

Spotted: Tiger Woods in Sun Day Red shoes, apparel at Genesis



After last night’s brand launch event, we fully expected Tiger Woods to arrive at Riviera for practice rounds ahead of the Genesis Invitational in Sun Day Red apparel.

What was less certain — perhaps unlikely, depending on who you talked to — was that the 15-time major winner and recent FootJoy Premiere Series enthusiast would sport Sun Day Red footwear.

However, Woods is doing just that, as evidenced by these shots from our tour photographer.

While we don’t have product details for the new shoes — or much in the lineup, really — we do know product will be available at retail starting May 1. Additionally, polos will cost between $115 and $175, cashmere sweaters will be $250 to $350, per a New York Times report.

Woods and Nike ended their famed 27-year relationship in January. The Genesis Invitational is Woods’ first “non-Nike” tournament.

Check out more photos of Tiger in Sun Day Red here as well as a full WITB look.
