Already in the bags of Nike athletes on the PGA Tour, including Stewart Cink, Anthony Kim, Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods, you can give Dad the same technological advances that gave those pros an almost unfair advantage.
The new Nike VR Pro Wedges, available in Satin Chrome or Brushed Oxide Raw, are created out of a precise forging process that results in a wedge that offers accurate shot-shaping performance. Even from a high handicapper like Dad… How do they do it? Each wedge face features more grooves, resulting in cleaner, more consistent ball flight and spin (while still conforming to the new USGA and R&A rules.)
With more grooves closer together and deeper on the clubface, the VR Pro wedge ensures more control and consistency in all conditions off of the clubface. And just to be sure the club grabs enough of the ball to create that green-stopping spin, a precision laser crosshatch pattern is applied to the area between the grooves. This adds three times the surface texture versus conventionally finished faces, creating more spin in all conditions. And by all conditions, I mean even when Dad is working on a double bogey on the Par-4 14th, and he’s over-swinging like John Daly with a driver.
