Nike Method Prototype 006 putter now availableApril 17, 2015 Golf Equipment
The Major-winning putter used by McIlroy will be available from May 2015
The Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter, as used by Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Seung Yul-Noh and others is being made available to the club golfer.
Developed by Nike Master Crasftsman David Franklin, the Nike Method Prototype Putter 006 features Polymetal Groove technology in the face to provide a soft feel and fast forward roll.
We took the opportunity to blend superior craftsmanship with innovative science to create a putter that not only looks beautiful, but also truly gives the athlete an advantage with a superior roll, Franklin said.
Franklin and the team of engineers operating out of The Oven, Nike Golf’s advanced R&D facility in Ft. Worth, Texas, are constantly looking at ways in which they can improve athlete’s performance.
When we get together to discuss what the athletes need to perform at a world-class level, we bring our expertise to the table and they bring theirs, Franklin said.
There is power in that and we take it very seriously.
Each Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter sold will feature a laser-engraved Nike Oven logo and will be bundled with a tour-packaged box of RZN Black golf balls, a volt Nike head cover and a booklet with more information about the club.
