Nike's Tour-Proven Nike Method Prototype 006 putter, as used by World No.1 Rory McIlroy, is now no longer exclusive to the tour pros
With a record of six Tour victories, including two Major championships, the Nike Method Prototype 006 Putter has been put to good use in the bag of Rory McIlroy, who finished fourth at the Masters, as well as Francesco Molinari, Seung Yul-Noh and other Nike athletes. On May 7th, it will become available to non-Tour professionals for the first time.
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 driven to provide athletes with the tools they need to maintain peak 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.
The putter will be available in limited quantities at nike.com from May 7th and select retailers from May 15th.
