Nike Golf next generation of Method putters will be available beginning Nov. 1. The Method Core Weighted putter utilizes fixed weights on the heel and sole to provide proper weighting by putter length. The weights, according to Nike Golf, help to lower the center of gravity as well as move the center of gravity away from the face.
“Most people don’t realize that they are about 3/10 of an inch above the ground at impact,” said David Franklin, Nike Golf Master Modelmaker. “You need to keep the center of gravity of the putter as low as you can so that it never gets higher than the CG of the ball. This stops the putter from driving the ball down and creating backspin on the ball.
“With the Method Core Weighted technology, we worked to get the center of gravity lower than the ball, enabling the putter to rise up at impact, lift the ball and turn it over quickly.”
Nike Method features a milled face and Polymetal Grooves that the company says generates “a more true and consistent roll,” keeping putts on target.
Nike Golf’s Method Core Weighted putters will be available in five models, each with a satin chrome finish (four blades; one mallet) and will carry a shelf price of $139.99.
