Nike Golf's next generation of Method putters, the Method Core Weighted putters, will arrive in pro shops on Nov. 1.

Like previously released Method Core putters, this new version features a face insert with grooves that are partially filled with a soft polymer, giving the putter both a softer feel and the ability to grab the ball and start it rolling forward more easily.

As the name implies, weights have been added to the sole of the Method Core Weighted putters to match the ideal swing weight with each putter's length. The 33- and 34-inch putters are heavier than the 35-inch models.

Nike will offer five different head shapes, ranging from a traditional heel-toe weighted blade to a new high MOI mallet inspired by the putters currently used by Simon Dyson and Carl Pettersson. All Method Core Weighted putters are finished in non-glare satin chrome with simple alignment lines. While the mallet has a unique shape, the other four are classic designs that you have likely seen before.

The two weights on the sole are not adjustable, but according to Nike, they do help to lower the club's center of gravity.

"With the Method Core Weighted technology, we worked to get the center of gravity lower than the ball," says David Franklin, Nike's Master Modelmaker. "This enables the putter to rise up at impact, lift the ball and turn it over quickly."

All five Nike Method Core Weighted putters should retail for about $139.
