Tour Edge’s New E8 Driver Adds Length, Sole Weight Adjustability

imageBatavia, IL (August 22, 2014) – The new E8 drivers deliver distance-dominating speed with adjustability options that allow players to fine tune power and control, and will bring Exotics to the forefront of the driver category. At the core of E8 driver’s technology is the center of gravity location and its ability to increase ball speed for legendary Exotics length.

E8 drivers are available in two options – E8 and E8 Beta – both feature superior adjustability with loft modifications and an interchangeable sole weight. A discerning feature of the E8 models involves the center of gravity (CG) location focusing on faster ball speeds. Engineers positioned E8’s CG slightly lower and forward for a higher launch, and faster ball speed with less spin. The Beta utilizes a higher, more forward CG position to produce a more penetrating trajectory, increased ball velocity, and minimal spin.

The standard E8 clubhead is customized with a 460cc titanium head and improved weighting with a noticeable lower profile. The driver’s forgiving construction also produces an easy-launching, high trajectory design for maximum accuracy and forgiveness.

The Beta driver is highlighted by a Beta Titanium face that delivers Exotics legendary power and feel. The Beta features a 440cc low-spin, deeper-faced head that produces a slightly lower, more boring trajectory.

The Power Grid has been refined in both models of the E8. The E8 clubhead’s channel is remarkably deeper, further enhancing the accordion effect and increasing spring-effect at impact. The Power Grid on the Beta models are strategically narrower than on the E8. This allows the center of gravity to be positioned closer to the face in the Beta, creating a powerful launch with minimal spin. In both models the cells within the Power Grid are aligned in offsetting rows, strengthening the design and allowing the cells to be made thinner for added flexibility and a more powerful launch.

Variable face thickness technology offers multiple levels of thickness that maximize the spring-like effect from more points on the face, especially in the heel and toe areas.

The E8 clubheads include loft options from 8.5 to 12 degrees in ½ degree increments. This advanced versatility gives players the ultimate control in achieving optimal distance and accuracy.

The E8 collection showcases an added adjustability option by incorporating an interchangeable sole weight. The driver comes standard with a 7-gram weight in the sole, but can be changed with the purchase of an optional weight kit. The three-piece weight kit includes a 5-gram, 10-gram, and 12-gram weight, kit-$49.99. Individual weights are available for $19.99. The driver’s swing weight can be adjusted by altering the weight in the sole, allowing players to further dial in their desired flight and feel.

A Tour-inspired matte black finish reduces glare at address and is the perfect accompaniment to the E8 drivers. The E8 drivers features Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty, 30-day play guarantee, and are projected to be in stores the beginning of October. Exotics drivers are available in the most popular shafts on the market; E8 is available with the Fujikura Pro/Pro Tour and Mitsubishi Bassara E-Series for a MSRP of $299.99. The E8 Beta driver is available in Aldila Rogue Silver and Black MSRP $399.99. For more information, call (800) 515-3343 or visit http://www.touredge.com.

    Gary Player, often referred to as the Black Knight, symbolizes all that world class golf is or was ever intended to be. A champion in every sense of the word, he has won 165 professional tournaments worldwide and through the philanthropic efforts of his foundation generated over $50 million dollars for the education of underprivileged children. Player, a master of the game, and a world leader in golf course design is credited with shaping more than 325 courses worldwide.

    When Gary Player won the US Open in 1965 at age 29, he became only the third golfer to win the Grand Slam, following Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen. Since then, only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have added their names to this elite group. Player has, to date, won nine major championships on the regular PGA Tour and nine on the Senior or Champions Tour. He is a three time President’s Cup Captain and in 2000 received South Africa’s Sportsman of the Century Award.

    In addition to his 40 years of golf course design, Player currently serves as the Global Ambassador to the World Golf Hall of Fame and holds an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from St. Andrews University. His legendary career and humanitarian endeavors have been acknowledged by numerous awards, including the 2012 PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2006 PGA Tour Payne Stewart Award, and the 2003 Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Player has circled the globe in pursuit of sporting events, and after journeying over 15 million miles, or 25 million kilometers, he is widely recognized as The World’s Most Traveled Athlete™.  When not traveling to or from sporting events, Player divides his time between the South African stud farm, where he has bred over 2000 winning thoroughbred race horses, and his residence on Jupiter Island in Hobe Sound, Florida.

    Nike Golf Reveals VRS Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition Driver

    Nike Golf Reveals VRS Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition Driver

    - College football helmets inspire new all-black limited edition design -

    BEAVERTON, Ore. (April 23, 2014) – Sports teams often incorporate black into uniforms for a big rivalry game or season opener – it’s a color traditionally associated with power, strength and sophistication. The concept, especially popular during college football season, also inspired Nike Golf club designers when it came to creating the new Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver.

    Nike Golf’s latest limited-edition innovation features a black Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G grip, Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black shaft, and matte black club head – a design element specifically modeled after matte black college football helmets that have popped up in recent years.

    “The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver offers a unique, limited-edition design combined with Nike’s high speed cavity back technology,” says Rob Arluna, Nike Golf Global Golf Club Business Director. “The black matte finish on the head provides a sleek, modern aesthetic and eliminates glare. The black grip and shaft give the driver a stealth, covert look.”

    High-Speed Cavity Back technology redistributes weight to the heel and toe allowing for increased distance and more stability across the face of the driver. The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver features Fly-Brace technology that ties the sole to the crown, stiffening the rear portion of the club and transferring more energy to the face at impact.

    The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver also boasts two additional proprietary technologies: A larger, re-engineered NexCOR face for increased ball speed and distance, and FlexLoft adjustability, which allows athletes to easily customize loft and face angle positions for 15 drivers in one.

    The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver will be available on Nike.com and at select retailers May 15, 2014. Available in right hand only.

    Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition Driver

    Availability: May 15, 2014
