The good news just keeps on coming for Nike this September.


First, there was Tiger Woods announcing his return to golf.

Then, Rory McIlroy grabbed his first PGA Tour win of the season at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Last week, Jason Day signed a deal to wear Nike apparel, shoes and cap.

And yesterday, Francesco Molinari captured his home Italian Open using this full Nike Golf bag…

Driver: Nike Vapor Fly 10.5°N
Fairway Metals: Vapor Fly #3 13°
Hybrid: Vapor Fly #2 17°
Irons: Nike Vapor Pro Combo 4, Pro 5-PW
Wedges: Nike Engage 52° SS, 56° DS, 60° DS
Putter: Method Origin B1-05
Ball: RZN Tour Platinum

But with Nike stopping its production of golf equipment, will we still be seeing Molinari with a full Nike bag when he defends his title next year?

Remember Ryo Ishikawa? The former Japanese wonderkid is back playing on the Japan Golf Tour after losing his PGA Tour card last year.

And, if rumours on GolfWRX.com are to be believed, he’s testing out a brand new Odyssey putter called DYPE – due to the Dollar, Yen, Pound, Euro symbols.

According to an advert, the putter is available for 55,000 yen. That’s a steep £413.96.

Scotty Cameron uploaded a new putter headcover ahead of last week’s Boise Open on the Web.com Tour – called ‘Puttator Girl’.



And who would be the first to put it on his short stick? Oh yes, it was Beef, who also happened to earn his PGA Tour card at the weekend.

What a wicked head cover this week for @boise_open
