Nike release tour-proven putter to public

2015 04 Nike Method 006 Prototype Sole Detail Native 600

The Nike Method Prototype 006 putter will be available to non-tour professionals for the first time next month.

With a record of six tour victories, including two major championships, the putter has had an incredible run in the bags of world No.1 Rory McIlroy, leading Italian golfer Francesco Molinari, South Korean star Seung Yul-Noh and others.



Developed by master craftsman David Franklin, the Nike Method Prototype putter 006 features Polymetal Groove technology in the face to provide a soft feel and fast forward roll.



“We took the opportunity to blend superior craftsmanship with innovative science to create a putter that not only looks beautiful, but also truly gives the athlete an advantage with a superior roll,” Franklin said.

Franklin and the team of engineers operating out of the Oven, Nike Golf’s advanced R&D facility in Fort Worth, Texas, are driven to provide athletes with the tools they need to maintain peak performance.



“When we get together to discuss what the athletes need to perform at a world-class level, we bring our expertise to the table and they bring theirs,” Franklin said. “There is power in that and we take it very seriously.”



Each Nike Method Prototype 006 putter sold will feature a laser-engraved Nike Oven logo and will be bundled with a tour-packaged box of RZN black golf balls, a volt head cover and a booklet with more information about the club.



The putter will be available in limited quantities at Nike.com from May 7 and select retailers from May 15 in Europe.
