Tiger Woods Using a New Nike Driver at Augusta
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods played last season using a Nike Dymo Tour driver with a Mitsubishi Diamana White Board 83x shaft, but on Monday at Augusta National he carried a second driver in his bag.
Under his famous tiger headcover, affectionately known as Frank, was a Nike Victory Red Tour driver with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI series shaft.
Tiger didn't drive the ball especially well at Augusta on Monday, sending drives well left of his target on the first, third, fifth, and 10th fairways. It should be interesting to see whether the club stays in his bag this week or if he reverts back to the Dymo on Thursday morning.
On another Tiger equipment front, there were rumors swirling through the Internet that he might come to Augusta using a Nike Method putter. Stewart Cink and Lucas Glover use one, as do Paul Casey and Michelle Wie. The rumors turned out to be false; Woods played his practice round Monday using the same Titleist by Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter that he's been using for years.See-Try-Buy: Learn more about Nike clubs and schedule your fitting with GolfTEC.
