Getting to the core of things

Nike’s new Method has been created to enhance forward roll


Building on the tour success of the Method putter family, a line that brought the Nike brand two major wins through Stewart Cink and Lucas Glover, and 12 wins worldwide, Nike has unveiled a brand new addition - the Method Core.

Unlike the original Method, a model of which you may have seen Tiger Woods wielding of late, the Core features a unique polymer-aluminium insert.

The distinctive aluminium insert face and polymer back lessens impact vibrations to provide a pure sound and feel but also ‘grabs’ the ball at impact to create a smooth and controlled roll.

 

This, in turn, reduces backspin, eliminating much of the skidding, which can cause the ball to go offline - the less backspin, the truer the roll.

Nike athlete Paul Casey was the first to win with the Method putter and has been one of the first to put the Method Core into play.There are five versions of the Method Core in total: three blades (MC-1i, MC-2i, MC-3i), one mid-mallet (MC-4i) and one mallet (MC-5i).

 

• Paul Casey on the Method Core: “You can really feel the difference of how the ball comes off the face and you can see the difference in how it rolls.”

 

• “By introducing Polymetal Groove Technology, we’ve found a way to create the desired launch angle with the stability and speed control of a skid free roll,” says Nike club designer David Franklin.

 

• Other Nike athletes who use the Method technology are Stephen Ames, Trevor Immelman and Justin Leonard.

 

• RRP: £120
