Nike offers VR Pro Hybrid
Nike Golf has created the VR Pro Hybrid, which Anthony Kim, Francesco Molinari and Carl Pettersson all put into play at the PGA Tour's season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Nike engineers have worked with tour members to deliver more speed on the clubface for longer, penetrating shots. Full Compression Channel technology along with variable face thickness creates a face 21 percent hotter than Nike's previous VR Hybrid, which increases speed for greater distance and control. The hybrid is designed with a sole that produces clean hits from any turf condition. The Sole Camber is flatter on lower lofts for tighter lies and deeper on higher lofts for more shot options.
The VR Pro Hybrids closely match the profiles of the VR Pro Irons for a consistent look at address, and the flatter sole of the hybrid keeps more of the club on the ground to maintain a seamless transition from hybrids to irons. The VR Pro Hybrids were designed with less draw bias. The longer club head eliminates the hybrid's tendency toward more draw by moving the center of gravity away from the hosel, and moving it slightly forward and lower helps create a penetrating ball flight. The hybrids become available on Feb. 3 with men's loft options of 15 degrees (1-hybrid), 18 degrees (2), 21 degrees (3) and 24 degrees (4), and just the 1-hybrid is available in a righthand model only. Shaft options are Project X graphite 6.5, 6.0, 5.5, 5.0, 4.5, and the hybrids retail for $203.99 each. Visit Nikegolf.com.
