CLASSIC DESIGN MEETS TOUR-PROVEN TECHNOLOGY IN NIKE'S NEW METHOD MOD PUTTERS

 

- Popular putter models from the past inspire a new premium line featuring Polymetal Groove Technology -

 

BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 8, 2013) – Divide a second by 1,000. Now divide that in half. That's how little time it takes to launch a golf ball that is just over an inch-and-a-half in diameter from where it sits nestled on a green. Nike's Polymetal Groove technology allows athletes to tackle this challenge with more consistency and confidence than ever before â€” and that same innovative technology paves the way for modern performance in Nike Golf's new line of classically-designed Nike Method MOD putters, available November 1.

 

Inspired by some of the most popular putter models of the past four decades, Nike Golf engineers combined tradition and innovation to craft the newest tech-savvy additions to the Method family. Timeless styles and shapes are updated with a unique arc design profile, red detailing and satin chrome finish to round out a line of four premium, milled putters that offer the ultimate in Tour-proven performance.

 

“We were able to take a range of classic designs and make them perform like modern putters,” says David Franklin, Nike Golf Master Modelmaker. “We incorporated Polymetal Groove technology, which allows athletes to lift the ball, launch it and turn it forward as quickly as possible for a truer roll.  We removed weight from the center, placing it in the heel and toe instead for a lower and deeper center of gravity. It's Nike's interpretation on classic, familiar shapes.”

 

Each Nike Method MOD putter is weighted to length to ensure proper feel, and the line offers a range of toe hang options determined by where the weight is in relationship to the putter head. This allows athletes to choose a model to his or her personal preference for optimal forgiveness, roll and accuracy: MOD 00 (face-balanced); MOD 30 (30 degrees of toe hang); MOD 60 (60 degrees of toe hang); and MOD 90, (90 degrees of toe hang).

 

Nike Method MOD putters will be available on November 1 at select retailers and on Nike.com.

I feel like the Mod90 is going to be a hot seller.  I think its awesome that the Bullseye had survived even to this day and that even after so many other newer, possibly better designs have come and gone, that the Bullseye endures.

The mod90 does look very sweet. This is also the first time I have seen Nike use "athletes" in their write ups instead of golfers. Seems like an interesting choice of words.

After seeing the testing review here, I tried out the Nike Method Core MC01w (http://www.mygolfspy.com/2013-most-wanted-blade-putter/) against the Yes Callie I started using this summer.  I really liked the Callie and I wasn't necessarily looking to add (yet another) putter but I've struggled more with putting since I had some eye surgeries a couple of years ago (plus I'm a club ho ;) ) so I was interested in comparing results.

 

I found that I setup a little less upright with the Nike, and distance control and accuracy was better for me on putts over 10' and it's now in the bag, so I'm certainly impressed with the Nike Method.  Good to see them expanding their lineup!

To coincide with Dave's great write http://www.mygolfspy.com/2014-nike-method-mod-putters/ up on the blog, I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents here. I had a chance to give these a once over this week.

 

Very crisp feel in the Mod-90 compared to Mod-60 or my current  003 gamer.

The Mod-60 compared to my current 003 is much easier to square up; just sit her down behind the ball, it's pretty sweet. Seems like there's less toe hang on this style now.

The Mod-90 is going to steal a lot of hearts.

High toes are sweet.

You get an immediate sense of roll without skidding.

I just wished I could buy the Mod90 with the black Oven cover (solid black AM&E with just a swoosh). Mmmmmmmmm... Tom Stites, if you're listening, make it happen

Just out of curiousity, how many of those in love with the 90 have ever bagged a bullseye for any meaningful period of time?

I don't think many have. I'll admit I haven't, but regardless I've always loved the looks of blade putters such as the Bullseye and 8802. I gamed a modern version of the 8802, the 8882, for some months but the reason I don't use putters like those is because I don't perform well enough with them to game them long term.

I had one in my bag for 2 years during high school golf and the Camerons collected dust. Bagged it for a year or two after as well. Have a box full of Bullseye or Wilson Augusta or Julius Boros heads too currently. Oh, and the two Cash-ins

I will occasionally take out the John Reuter Jr. bullseye. Fun old putter.

I have always wanted to pick up a Cameron wide flange one. Not sure why...
