Nike Golf introduces VR Pro Limited Edition fairway woods

BEAVERTON, Ore. (November 15, 2011) – To achieve top-level performance on every shot in the arsenal, Nike Golf has created the VR Pro Limited Edition fairway woods.  With the demanding standards of Nike Golf athletes, the VR Pro Limited Edition fairway wood provides shot-shaping distance, green-seeking accuracy and consistent reliability.

Already in the bag of Nike Golf athletes Stephen Ames, Stewart Cink, Simon Dyson, Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods, the VR Pro Limited Edition fairway woods are currently available at retail.  The tour-driven design of the VR Pro Limited Edition fairway wood has a head shape that is slightly pear, with a mid-to-low face height made from 455 stainless steel.  This design addresses the tour athlete’s need for great feel and maximum confidence to attack the target from anywhere.

A leader in innovation, Nike Golf utilizes the recognizable variable Compression Channel technology to increase speed at more spots on the club face, delivering greater distance on draws, stingers, high cuts, fades or straight bombs.  The full-length Compression Channel combined with the variation in the depth of the channel in specific locations, allows the consumer to generate more ball speed which translates to greater distance.

The new MRC Diamana ‘Ahina shaft incorporates Mitsubishi Rayon’s signature Multi-Dimensional Interlay technology (MDI) to deliver a stiffer mid and tip section than its predecessor.

The Nike VR Pro Limited Edition fairway wood is a perfect complement to the VR Pro Limited Edition driver; both are designed for golfers who prefer more traditional wood shapes and who demand tour-level performance.
