-With a focus on mobility and proprioception, the Spring 2013 Tiger Woods Collection maximizes range of motion while keeping posture in check-
BEAVERTON, Ore (March 19, 2013) – Nike Golf takes apparel innovation to the next level, incorporating groundbreaking technology to maximize athletic performance. As the number one golf apparel company in the world, Nike Golf prides itself on innovation with the pinnacle of relentless innovation exemplified in the Tiger Woods Collection. Woods’ passion and competitive spirit fuels Nike to create the most innovative and athletic products in the sport.
Striving to make Woods’ apparel better, Kim Kenney, Design Director for Nike Golf, looked at what the distraction points have been for him throughout his career. “For Tiger, we found that the key areas of distraction were his collar and sleeves,” Kenney said. “Tiger was typically adjusting his sleeves before he addressed the ball, moving the garment’s shoulder seam back as a way to mark his golf stance. Then, after he followed through he had to adjust and pull his sleeves back to the original position.” To solve this problem, a continuous shoulder seam was ergonomically engineered on the back side of his polo which highlights a proprioceptive point that informs Woods he is in the desired position. In efforts to reduce distraction, the shoulder seam is constructed by ultrasonic line bonding which gives the wearer a “seamless” feel against the skin.
Additionally, an articulated Kimono style back with a posture informing chassis was designed to maximize range of motion. The back of the sleeves are not traditionally sewn onto the body of the shirt, but instead, are engineered as one continuous piece along with the back body of the polo. The design reduces limitations in the area that endures the most tension in a swing – across the back.
“I consider my apparel to be as significant as the rest of my golf equipment,” said Tiger Woods. “My test sessions with the Nike apparel team led us to construct a polo that frees my swing starting at address and continuing through impact and my follow through. The new shoulder seam construction makes for no restrictions. This allows me to swing with power, and with complete confidence.”
The TW Trajectory Polo ($100), TW Graphic Polo ($90), TW Stripe Polo ($90), TW Chest Stripe Polo ($95) and the TW Modern Color Block Polo ($95) are all styles in the 2013 Spring Tiger Woods Collection built on the posture informing chassis. The center back seam that is commonly found in the Tiger Woods Collection is made of ultrasonic line bonding to provide shaping to the polo. This back seam allows the polo to fit perfectly when in the address position. To keep the athlete cool, the Tiger Woods Collection features Nike’s Dri-FIT technology, which helps move moisture away from the athlete’s skin. The 2013 collection utilizes a perforated collar that allows increased airflow to the neck. This perforated collar also helps reduce the overall weight in the polo to create a lighter feel for the athlete.
While the Tiger Woods Collection comprises the most innovative technology, there are bold patterns, bright colors and design detailing in every piece. The TW Trajectory Polo ($100) and the TW Graphic Polo ($90) were designed using Woods’ launch monitor numbers to create a repeated graphic of his launch angle subtly displayed on the polos.
Located at NIKE’s World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Nike Golf designs and markets golf equipment, apparel, balls, footwear, bags and accessories worldwide. Nike Golf is passionately dedicated to ushering in the future of this great sport by developing ground-breaking innovations that enable and inspire athletes to become better.

Nike Athlete Tiger Woods Claims his 76th Victory with 14 Nike Clubs in his Bag
-Nike athletes Scott Brown and Suzann Pettersen also secured victories on their respective tours-
BEAVERTON, Ore. (March 11, 2013)- Nike Athlete Tiger Woods once again tamed the TPC Blue Monster course at the Trump Doral Golf Resort and Spa to secure his runaway victory at the WGC Cadillac Championship.
Helping to capture his 17th World Golf Championship win was his bag of 14 Nike clubs, including his Nike Method 001 putter. Woods was second in putts per round draining a total of 27 birdies, just one short of his record for the tournament.
Woods produced a career-best 100 putts for the tournament with technology that has been instrumental in his last six PGA Tour wins for the Swoosh. The Nike Method franchise features Nike’s polymetal groove technology, generating a faster forward roll at impact for increased accuracy and less skid.
The newest addition to Woods’ bag this week is the Nike VR_S Covert 5-wood. The VR_S Covert features high speed cavity back technology, moving weight to the perimeter to increase forgiveness and add even more distance to off-center shots.
On his switch to the new VR_S Covert 5-wood, Woods said, “I hit it a little bit further, so there’s a little bit bigger gap between the 3-iron and the 5-wood, but I can hit this 5-wood a little bit higher, so I can actually take something off it and throw it up in the air, which is nice.”
In addition to featuring Nike Golf apparel from the TW Collection, Woods also wore the Nike TW ’13 footwear.
Suzann Pettersen and Scott Brown also secured victories this weekend on their respective tours. Pettersen came from two behind to capture the trophy at the Mission Hills World Ladies’ Golf Championship. Pettersen, who has the new Nike VR_S Covert Tour driver in her bag, had a bogey-free final round, sinking six birdies with her Nike Method putter.
Brown secured his first PGA Tour win at the Puerto Rico Open with 14 Nike clubs in the bag. Brown went from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory Sunday when he drained a birdie putt on the 18th with his Nike Method putter. Brown earned a two-year exemption on tour and a spot in the PGA Championship this summer.

Boccieri Golf Secret Grip Now Available Exclusively at
DICK’S Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy
Customers Receive FREE Jack Nicklaus-Endorsed Secret Grip with Voucher
(SCOTTSDALE, AZ) – Boccieri Golf announces its Secret Grip is now available at DICK’S Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy stores. Exclusive through Father’s Day, the retailers will install one free grip on the 7-iron or driver of any customer that presents a voucher from boccierigolf.com/secret-grip-free.
Recently introduced, the Secret Grip is a patented technological breakthrough that allows players to easily backweight their clubs, similar to the way Jack Nicklaus did while winning 73 PGA Tour titles and 18 major championships. Designed to be installed quickly and affordably on every manufacturer’s equipment, the Secret Grip’s heavier weight raises the club’s balance point, promoting consistently crisp contact for greater control and distance.
The added weight comes from a tungsten insert in the butt-end and a proprietary compound 40 percent heavier than properties used in standard grips.
“Back-weighting is a secret that TOUR players have employed for decades, so we are extremely excited about giving our players the same benefits with the Secret Grip,” says Randy Cameron, Vice President of Merchandising for Golf Galaxy. “By helping players get their hands set in a better position and keeping the swing on plane, they will enjoy better results. Moreover, Jack Nicklaus giving his support of the technology in the Secret Grip will instill the confidence in our customers to help them play their best.”
DICK’S Sporting Goods operates 511 stores across 44 states and Golf Galaxy has 81 locations in 30 states.
“Comprehensive research and testing proves backweighting allows golfers to maximize on-course performance,” says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. “Partnering with Golf Galaxy and DICK’s to introduce the Secret Grip nationwide is a perfect way to put product into the hands of golfers with a no-risk, free trial offer.”
Coinciding with the Golf Galaxy and DICK’S retail launch is the debut of Secret Grip television commercials, which include Nicklaus and a description of the benefits of backweighting for players of all skill levels. The first in a series of year-long spots aired in February during the season premiere of Golf Channel’s “Feherty,” with Nicklaus as the featured guest.
The Secret Grip continues to receive praise from scores of leading media, including “Top Products from the PGA Show” honors from Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine. In addition, recent launch-monitor testing of more than 500 players shows 95 percent strongly prefer the Secret Grip over traditional grips.
Further advantages of the Secret Grip ($16.99 each) include:
Total length one-inch longer than standard grips, allowing players to “grip down” for improved play, especially around the green and on uneven lies
A built-up lower section – often preferred by PGA Tour players – completely removes the need for additional grip tape wrapping
The Secret Grip is the latest innovation from Boccieri Golf, pioneer of the popular Heavy Putter and critically acclaimed “Control Series” of full swing clubs.

About Boccieri Golf
Founded in 2005 by Stephen Boccieri, the company’s popular Heavy Putter collection and Control Series line of full-swing products were the first to integrate counterweight principals. This unique approach to club design is proven to benefit golfers of all abilities, as strategically placed weight in the butt-end of the shaft produces a higher balance point for smoother, more repeatable swings from driver through putter. Boccieri Golf’s Secret Grip, endorsed by Jack Nicklaus, is its latest innovation.
The company recently opened a state-of-the-art Research and Performance Center at 15816 N. Greenway-Hayden Loop in Scottsdale. The 9,000-square-foot facility offers golfers a variety of services, including custom club fitting, high-tech swing analysis and practice time on life-like simulators.
Boccieri Golf equipment has played a key role in victories on the PGA, European, Champions, Nationwide, Asian, Canadian and European Challenge Tours, and has received critical acclaim from golf and lifestyle media worldwide.
