The putter Carl Pettersson credited with helping him win the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town this past weekend was a Nike Golf Method Prototype putter he’s been using on and off this year. Pettersson, who has used a long putter for the past 14 years, used the same putter to finish T2 at Sony this year and second at the Shell Houston Open.
“It puts a nice roll,” on the ball, Pettersson said.
Don’t look for the putter in your local golf shop. Nike Golf doesn’t sell that particular head shape. But for the record, it’s a 49-inch putter with two degrees of loft.
The head shape is also played by Nike Golf staffer Simon Dyson. Dyson, however, plays a standard length putter.
Pettersson also used a Nike VR Pro STR8-Fit drive with a 11.5 degrees of loft – unusually high for a Tour player. He also played a TaylorMade Burner fairway wood (14.5 degrees); Nike VR Pro hybrid (21 degrees); a Nike VR_S Forged 4 wood; Nike VR Pro Combo (5-PW); Nike VR Pro Forged wedges (49, 55, 60); and a Nike 20XI golf ball.
