Nike gave its Concept putter a face-lift for Augusta
OVER THE LAST few years Nike has rolled out special editions of certain clubs and shoes to go with particular events, such as Union Jack--styled shoes for the British Open and a Ryder Cup--stamped putter, to name a few. This week the company has put out a version of its Method Concept putter in shades of green and yellow that shout "Masters." The shades are eye-catching, but the Concept doesn't need much help getting attention. It has a distinctive appearance and an interesting technology story.
The high-density steel arm moves the center of gravity low and back.
From above, the head has the look of a blade with the stability of a mallet.
The lightweight aluminum face reduces mass up front and provides distinct feedback even as the polymer insert dampens vibration.
