Designed from the grip down, the new Verdana line is the lightest women's set Nike Golf has ever produced.
Nike describes the Verdana set as a "total game solution" that includes 11 clubs: a driver, 3-wood, three hybrids, 7-iron through pitching wedge, sand wedge and putter, along with a matching carry bag. This full-set design takes distance gapping, trajectory and spin profiles into account, producing a set engineered just for women.
Few people tinker with their games more than Padraig Harrington – this is the guy, after all, who won three majors and then decided to rebuild his swing. And this year, of course, he has begun to wear eyeglasses on the course.
On Thursday, though, Harrington did something few would have expected – he used a long putter in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship.
Why is this a big deal? Here's the scoop from Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press:
Given the vast array of drivers, fairway clubs, hybrids and irons in the Adams Golf arsenal, it might seem like there's no room for anything else. Ah, but there is.
Adams has unveiled the Idea Super DHy – a driving hybrid for low- to mid-handicap players.
Merging the unique attributes of a hybrid and a traditional long iron, Adams says the Idea Super DHy is designed to provide the extra distance and forgiveness of a hybrid along with the shot-shaping control and workability of a long iron.
In the spring of 2012, Ping Golf rolled out its Nome putter – a mallet-style high-MOI flatstick designed to be easy to aim and stable throughout the stroke.
A year later, the company has issued a TR version of the Nome, which features Ping's True Roll variable-depth grooves. The grooves are deepest in the center of the face and get gradually shallower toward the edges – this, Ping says, helps to makes the ball roll the same distance regardless of where on the face the putt is struck.
