No company has boosted its stock more in 2013 than Nike Golf. A big part of the company’s image change has been the signing of the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy, as well as other PGA Tour players Nick Watney and Kyle Stanley. Yet the main new part of the NIKE arsenal might come from their new VR_S Covert driver, one of the most talked about new golf clubs for 2013. Nike says,” the crater of mass the company removed from driver’s sole moves helps move the clubs center of gravity more forward, which makes the forgiving than other drivers. The Covert’s adjustable hosel also allows golfers to adjust both face angle and loft. Many retail stores and pro shops have already started to received shipment of these new drivers.
TaylorMade-Adidas is a brand that has no plans of leaving its current No. 1 spot. While the company’s claims of increased distance are getting slightly repetitious, TaylorMade continues to improve its products with more technology, more adjustability and more pizazz. As in previous years, TaylorMade’s new metalwoods were one of the biggest hits of the recent PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. The R1 was a must hit for most golfers, as were the RocketBallz Stage 2 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. And even though the company’s RocketBladez irons hit shelves in December, golfers were still buzzing about how high and far they could hit them. With its new ability to "dial in," there are now over 175 variations for the new drivers. This is a must try for golfers.
Tour Edge introduced their first adjustable driver - the Exotics XCG6. Well received by golfers and PGA professionals for providing excellent power and distance, many golfers praised the smaller adjustable hosel as providing better feel and performance than that of the competition. Here are a few product highlights:
* The Exotics XCG6 driver is Tour Edge' s first adjustable driver
* The Exotics XCG6 fairway wood just received Golf Digest 2013 Hot List honors and is 20 yards longer than the competition (see test results in release)
* The Exotics XCG6 hybrid just received 2013 Golf Digest Hot List Honors
* The Exotics XCG6 iron four tungsten sole weights make this iron incredibly forgiving
Tour Edge occupies top-10 market share in every equipment category in the United States as measured by Golf Data Tech, the industries market monitor. In any given week we have as many as 10 Exotics fairway woods in play on the PGA Tour and multiple clubs across all tours. Look for these new drivers at local Pro Shops and retail stores.
Most recent swing trainers rely on some sort of technology (computer, video, smartphone) to help golfers improve their technique. But the new SWING SHIRT is a less expensive alternative to all the high-tech aids, and it provides instinctive feedback on what it feels like to stay connected during the golf swing. The Golf Swing Shirt is basically a single sleeve hanging from slightly below chest level. To use it, all golfers had to do was insert both arms through the sleeve and start swinging. The shirt keeps a golfers hands, arms, shoulders and core moving in unison, giving golfers the connected feeling that is taught by many PGA Professionals such as endorser Jimmy Ballard. The Swing Shirt is currently available at several local Pro Shops. Ask you PGA golf professional about obtaining one.
