Tour Edge, PING, Nike and More

Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by, we’ve got some odd and ends here from Scott Kramer to share today. Some interesting news from Nike and PowerBuilt Golf. Check it out!

Tour Edge introduced Exotics low-CG, multi-metal Trilogy fairway woods ($199 apiece) with a diamond-shaped inner rail that squares the clubface at impact. The sole’s two outer rails and one inner rail help turf interaction.

PING unveiled 14 different Scottsdale putters ($140-$180 depending on model) that boast a thermoplastic elastomer insert for soft, solid feel and crisp sound. Expanded perimeter weighting helps make roll truer.

Bridgestone debuted the two-piece FIX ball ($19.99/dozen) that replaces the TreoSoft in its line. This ball generates more spin around the greens and is 4% softer. A low-compression core yields a higher launch with less backspin and sidespin. Meanwhile, a new soft cover boosts spin control and feel around the greens.

Maruman Golf debuted the Majesty Vanquish VR line of clubs that includes a low-CG driver ($1,399) for golfers with a clubhead speed of 83-95 mph; fairway woods ($1,099 each) with thin-walled top and double tungsten weights; hybrids ($749 apiece); and irons ($4,299/set of 8).

Wilson Staff is introducing the Di11 iron with low-and-deep weight that promotes a higher ball flight and more stability; a wide sole to improve turf interaction, perimeter weighting; and wide-tip shafts.
