Inspired by some of the most popular putter models of the past four decades, Nike and Priority Designs collaborated to bring a modern aesthetic to classic putter design. A unique arc design profile creates a “high toe” appearance across the family, bringing a distinctive view from the face and at address. Machined stainless steel finishes communicate precision, and CNC tolerances provide manufacturing consistency that wasn’t available 40 years ago. Finally, an iconic family brand language was established with clean surfacing, and automotive paint applications were applied to be viewable on camera during the PGA tour, without being distracting to the player at address.
Nike’s engineers perfected innovative technologies in putter design, including: the Polymetal Groove technology which promotes forward roll consistency, and the two weight ports that allow for customization. Matching the putter to a player’s stroke is critical, and the simple naming convention helps to identify the degree of toe hang with your putting arc: shallow arc = Method Mod 00 (0 toe hang), deeper arc = Method Mod 90 (90 toe hang) and so on. Combining these innovations with updates to historic body styles is what truly makes them modern classics.
