Nike Putter Range
The Nike putter range is the new kid on the block in the putter world. Nike
pretty much launched itself as a golf brand when Tiger Woods first came on the
scene in 1997. Prior to that they had few models of drivers, irons and putters
that could compete with top manufacturers.
Since then Nike have steadily improved the quality of their offering and their
Method and Method Core Putters, launched in 2010 and 2011, have been well
received by touring professionals. In 2009 Lucas Glover won the US Open and in
2010 Stewart Cink won the Open with Method putters, which also helped to lend
credibility to the ranges.

Nike Method 001
A minimalist anser head that looks just a little lightweight. The roll is pure and the feel is good.
Nike Method 002
Most similar to a Ping Zing shape, this putter has a simple no-frills look, a good roll, but a high price tag.
Nike Method 003
The Nike Method putter favored by Tiger Woods. A heavily toe-weighted putter with classic looks. Fantastic if you have an open-square-closed stroke.
Nike Method 004
Face balanced version of the Method 001. Favor this putter if you're trying to produce a straight-back-straight through stroke.
Nike Method 005
Face balanced mallet which looks like it's got a good bit of meat behind the head. For our money the best looking in the Method range.
You may well have picked up on the media excitement Tiger Woods caused at the
2010 Open Championship when he changed from the Scotty Cameron Newport style
putter he'd used to win 13 of his 14 Majors up to that point to use the Nike
Since then he's continued to experiment with Nike putters of one
sort or another. This has coincided with the longest winless streak of his
career, but that's more likely to do Woods' well publicised off course troubles
than with the putter!
