New Product Launch: TaylorMade M2 Driver

The TaylorMade M2 driver allows you to gain more distance, more often. No longer will you crush a driver and wonder what you did that gave you the longest drive you’ve ever hit. You’ll be doing it more often, so much so, that with this driver it’ll become the norm.

That’s a lot to promise coming off the heel of a remarkable driver in the M1. You’ll notice this isn’t a far cry from the M1 though. It’s just a complement and it completes the family. A lot of the same technology found in the M1 driver can be found in the M2. The only difference is the M2 driver delivers a little more distance and forgiveness – something every golfer is looking for, no matter their ability.

We took our new multi-material construction and leveraged the weight savings to give golfers what they want, distance and a whole lot of forgiveness. – Brian Bazzel Sr. Director Metalwood Product Creation

New Launch: Nike RZN Tour Golf Balls

Nike RZN Tour Golf Balls

The Nike golf ball R&D team are always looking for ways to improve. Status quo is not suitable. They’re challenged to continually peer into the future to find ways to use cutting edge technology to modify the golf ball.

With the launch of their first golf ball 1999, Nike has always found a way to stray from the norm and discover new materials and methods to enhance the golf ball for the top athletes in the world. The top athletes in the world expect and demand the best and Nike won’t ignore their athletes. What they want is what they get. The R&D team goes to work and digs deep into the world of physics and aerodynamics and how small tweaks affect the golf ball.

The History of Nike Golf Balls

2000 – Tour Accuracy

The first solid-core golf balls. A technology that helped Tiger Woods win more than 20 tournaments, including 4 consecutive major championships in a 4 year span.

2003 – Nike One

One of the industry’s first 4-piece construction golf balls

2001 – Nike 20XI

The first RZN core, using a new lighter and faster core that allowed the weight to move to the perimeter for better stability.

2014 – Nike RZN

RZN material on a new lever with Speedlock technology.

2016 – RZN Tour

Engineered to feel soft without sacrificing distance. The combined technology help take the RZN Tour Black and RZN Tour Platinum golf balls to a new level for distance and soft feel.

The ball feels much softer, yet I’ve maintained my ball speed and even picked up a few yards overall. It’s easily the best combination of distance and feel I’ve ever played. – Rory McIlroy

Nike RZN 4.0 Technology

RZN 4.0

The Nike RZN Tour golf balls are made with the newest iteration of RZN Material (RZN 4.0). The blue center core is 10% bigger and it gives the golf ball more speed. Think of the core as the engine – bigger engine, more speed.

Nike RZN Speedlock Technology

Speedlock Technology

The core of the golf ball uses Nike’s Speedlock X technology. This technology has deeper grooves and an X-shaped surface pattern. This design creates 26% more surface which transfers more energy through the golf ball for more distance. This technology surrounds the core and the two technologies combined engage the golf ball for greater spin on short shots.

Nike RZN Flight Suit Technology

Flight Suit Cover

The golf balls’ Flight Suit cover has a visible 344 dimples and 13,558 micro dimples. To hit longer shots, the aerodynamics need to be changed and the micro-dimples, which are strategically positioned, help improve the lift and drag of the ball flight.

Nike RXN Tour Black Golf Ball

The Nike RZN Tour Black golf ball is designed for athletes seeking lower-spin distance.

Nike RZN Tour Platinum Golf Ball

The Nike RZN Tour Platinum golf ball is geared for athletes seeking mid-spin control.

Winter Golf: Survival 101


With a blast of cold air affecting most of the nation, I thought it would be a great week to take a look at cold weather golf. While the number one answer in virtually any survey regarding cold weather golf is to “Move somewhere warmer”. As this is not an option for most of us, keep these things in mind when braving the winter temperatures for a round of golf.

Winter Golf

1. Dress Appropriately

Dressing in layers offers the best chance of staying warm and still being able to make a decent swing at the ball. The key here is layers. Keep in mind that you can always take off a layer or 2 if you are too warm but you cannot add a layer that you do not have if you are too cold. While a nice thick coat will keep you toasty between shots, trying to make a swing with it on will prove impossible.

Winter Golf

2. Take An Extra Club & Swing Easy

There are two reasons for this piece of advice. The first reason is the fact that the ball does not travel as far in cold air as it does in warm air. Expecting that 8 iron to go 150 yards in 35 degree temperatures will leave you chipping from 5 to 10 yards short of the green all day long. The second reason to swing easy is quickly recognized by anyone who has ever hit a shot thin in cold weather. Nothing will dampen your spirits during a round of golf more than the horrible pain and tingling that resonates through your entire hand after a shot hit too low on the club face. Swinging easy and even playing the ball slightly further back in your stance than normal can go a long way toward preventing these shots.

Winter Golf

3. Arrive Early & Keep Moving

The most difficult thing to do in cold weather is to warm up, get loose, and stay that way for the entire round. Make sure that you arrive early enough to have extra time to loosen up and get all of the body parts moving prior to getting to the first tee. Once on the course, try to keep moving as much as possible in order to stay loose. Walking is the best way to do this but if you are riding in a cart, consider alternating hole by hole with your partner who will drive the cart that hole and who will walk. At the very least, walk around the cart each time you get out of it to get the blood moving again.

Winter Golf

4. Be Realistic & Have Fun

Be honest with yourself. In this kind of weather, the fact that you are able to get out at all and be with your friends playing this wonderful game should be enough. If you go out expecting to break the course record and go low, you are not going to have much fun. Try to look at it this way. The more swings you are making, the warmer you are going to be due to the extra movement.

Next time you and your group decide to form your own “Polar Bear Golf Club”, keep these tips in mind and most importantly, have fun because that is the real reason we all play this game.

Quick Recap

1. Dress Appropriately
2. Take Extra Club & Swing Easy
3. Arrive Early & Don’t Stand Still
4. Be Realistic & Have Fun
