Nike Athlete Kevin Tway Captures First Tour Title

Nike athletes win consecutive Tour events elevating their professional careers-Nike Covert

BEAVERTON, Ore. (July 29, 2013) – Nike Athlete Kevin Tway won his first career Tour title at the Boise Open, making it the second win by a Nike athlete in consecutive weeks on the Tour.  Tway follows fellow Nike athlete Jamie Lovemark’s victory at the Midwest Classic in the week prior.

With this win, Tway jumped from 39th to sixth on the money list, wrapping up a spot next season on the PGA Tour.

“This means a lot because I’ve struggled since turning pro,” the former Oklahoma State player said. “This really hasn’t sunk in yet. I’ve always wanted to play on the PGA Tour since I was a little kid.”

Throughout the tournament, Tway highlighted a full bag of Nike equipment, including the new Nike VR_S Covert Tour driver, featuring the striking cavity back technology. With this iconic Nike driver, Tway ranked fourth in driving distance averaging 334-yard drives.  Also assisting him to his victory were his Nike VR_S Forged irons, in which he averaged 75% in greens in regulation.  Rounding out Tway’s bag of Nike arsenal includes a Nike VR_S Covert 3-wood, and three Nike VR Pro wedges (48, 54 and 60-degree).  Tway also used Nike’s 20XI X ball featuring more RZN technology.
