2014 Nike Golf Bags

Nike Golf’s Lightest Carry Bag Ever: The Nike Sport Lite

– New bag weighs in at less than four pounds –2014 Nike Golf Bags

BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 31, 2013) – Golfers are always striving to keep their numbers low, and Nike Golf designers took that same approach when it came to crafting the new Nike Sport Lite carry bag, available at retail November 1. Weighing less than four pounds, the Nike Sport Lite is Nike Golf’s lightest carry bag to date.

Nike’s proprietary EquaFlex revolving double strap system, which distributes bag weight evenly across the shoulders through an ergonomic design, brings that much more comfort to the often tiring task of carrying a bag around the course for hours at a time. A five-way, two full-length divider system with putter well maximizes club visibility and organization.

The Nike Sport Lite bag, available in six colors, features the storage space serious athletes need and none of the added weight. Six fleece-lined functional pockets, including a full length apparel pocket, provide enough space for athletes to be prepared on the course without creating extra bulk.

Additional features include:

·      Integrated GPS loop, pen sleeve and glove patch

·      Custom grip leg end-caps

·      Matching rain hood

Nike Golf Athlete Suzann Pettersen Captures First Win With Nike’s New 2014 RZN ball


– Pettersen defends her Taiwan Championship title, locks up fifth global victory of the year –

BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 28, 2013) – Suzann Pettersen dominated the field by five shots to clinch her second consecutive Sunrise Taiwan Championship, her third LPGA title in less than two months.

It was the Norwegian’s first win with the new 2014 Nike RZN ball, which will be officially unveiled in more detail next month. Pettersen, who put the ball in play for the first time just two weeks ago, became the first Nike athlete to win with the 2014 Nike RZN ball, which will become available early next year.

In addition to the 2014 Nike RZN ball, Pettersen’s 14-club Nike arsenal includes her Nike Method Core 3i putter featuring Polymetal Groove technology, which helps to reduce skid and produce a truer roll. Pettersen, playing irons from Nike’s VR line, leads the LPGA rankings in greens in regulation (76 percent) and is third in putts per greens in regulation, birdying three of the final six holes to secure the win.

“My game is in a good spot. I’m a grinder.  I love to practice.  I love to prepare myself, and then it’s even better to go out and get the job done,” Pettersen said. “I think personally, mentally, I’m ready to take on number one.  That’s my drive, that’s my goal.  I want to dominate ladies golf and to do that, you’ve got to go out and you’ve got to be comfortable with big leads.”

Pettersen is closing in on the top spot in the Women’s World Golf Rankings — after her win in Taiwan, she is just 185 points behind the world’s current number one. The victory is Pettersen’s fifth in 2013 and the 14th of her career on the LPGA Tour. It is also her eighth straight top-ten finish of the year.

Pettersen sported apparel from Nike’s Tour Performance Collection and Nike’s FI Impact footwear.

Product Review: Nike Hyperadapt Storm-FIT Half-Zip Golf Jacket

It’s that time of the year that everyone enjoys. That’s right it’s fall golf season! It’s the time when the inclimate weather rolls through and you need to make sure you have the proper outerwear. One of my favorite pieces is the new Nike Hyperadapt Storm-FIT Half-Zip golf jacket. Available in three colorways of Cool Grey, Black and my favorite is Game Royal Blue.

Look  8/10

The look of the new Nike Hyperadapt Storm-Fit Half-Zip golf jacket  is clean and all about performance. When playing in the worst conditions you want a jacket that will not only keep you warm but also dry. This jacket is available in 3 great colorways and I selected the Game Royal Blue which I still wear often while either on the course, on the job site or anywhere around town. Only thing I would like to see with this jacket is a few other color options  just to give more variety on which color you want to purchase. Overall I give the look an 8/10 rating.Nike Hyperadapt

Comfortability 7/10

The Nike Storm-Fit jacket not only looks but but fits tight without sacrificing any range of motion for even the fastest of swing speeds. Most the time when purchasing rain gear you are stuck with bulky options that just seem to get in the way. Nike however has delivered on something that will be comfortable the whole round without disturbing your golf swing. Only problem I found with this jacket is when pulling up the sleeves when it starts getting hotter outside that it’s tough to get it all the way up your fore arms because its designed to fit closer to your body. I give the comfortability a 7/10 rating.

Performance 10/10

This jacket just screams performance. You know that whole saying you get what you pay for? This could be nothing further from the truth. At a sticker price of $240 you might think is way too high but it’s actually worth every penny. Nike hit a home run with giving you a breathable jacket that is seam-sealed to give 100% waterproof protection. This is a jacket that will keep you dry all round with the great technology Nike has invested into this jacket line. Nothing else to be said I give the overall performance a 10/10 rating.

Overall Rating 25/30

If you’re in the market for a great piece to add to your golf outerwear collection and love wearing the swoosh make sure to checkout the Nike Hyperadapt Storm-FIT Half-Zip golf jacket while shopping through the fall golf collection. Available now on the Nike Golf website along with any Nike distribution areas at your local shops.

Product Review: 2013 Nike FI Impact Golf Shoes

Want to know what are some of my favorite golf shoes of 2013? It’s a golf shoe that doesn’t even look like a golf shoe and more like a pair of sweet cross trainers coming in four different colorways. They are the Nike FI Impact golf shoes, and I not only wear them on the course but to work or out and about like ordinary shoes with more grip. (BTW, These are great for trail running when you need extra traction on unpaved surfaces.)

nike FL impact golf shoes

Look 8/10

Out of the four colorways, my favorite is the Military Blue/White-Venom Green-Black (pictured above). The four colors are Black/Metallic Silver; Light Base Grey/Black; Military Blue/White; MD Base Grey/Team Orange. Also starting January 1st 2014 Black/Venom Green will be available.

These shoes look great if your teeing off at your favorite course or heading out on errands around town. If you are currently a fan of the Nike Free athletic shoes then these will be right in your wheel house and a great addition to your golf collection. I give the overall look of the Nike FI Impact golf shoes an 8/10.

Comfort 9/10

The Nike Free shoe collection is some of the most comfortable shoes on the market. Nike has taken the technology of a super light shoe and introduced it to their golf collection. The Dynamic Fit system in these shoes cradles your foot for an adaptive, glove-like fit. This technology, along with the free outsole, will give you more flexibility to help transfer more power into your golf shots giving you better distance on the course.  I have walked a handful of rounds wearing these shoes and have had no problems or feelings of discomfort.

If you are looking for an extremely comfortable golf shoe without the old school saddle-like look then look no further than the Nike FI Impact golf shoes. I give the overall comfort rating an 9/10

Grip 8/10

At first glance you might not think these shoes would give you any traction without the typical golf spikes found on the bottom of golf shoes but don’t let the FI Impact’s fool you. The integrated traction provides maximum stability and grip even on the wettest of days on the course. I had absolutely no problem with grip with these shoes with zero slippage incidents. They will help you create that strong base you are looking for when setting up to crush a ball and swing out of your shoes. I give the overall grip rating an 8/10.

Overall Grade 25/30

So if you think its time to find a better golf shoe this fall and are looking for an athletic-type shoe that will give you great comfort, grip and a variety of great colorways then make sure to stop by your local golf shop and give them a try yourself. Also available now on Nike Golf  for $130.


Developed with insights from elite golfer Suzann Pettersen, the Nike FI Impact Men’s Golf Shoe features a flexible Nike Free-inspired outsole to unleash the full power of your swing.


The Nike Free-inspired outsole is designed to mimic and conform to the natural movement of your foot. It offers increased flexibility and full athletic motion by allowing you to keep contact with the ground longer, better harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground. The result is more control and power with every shot.

Dynamic Fit

The Dynamic Fit system cradles your foot for an adaptive, glove-like fit. It consists of soft fingers that wrap underneath the arch and integrate with the laces, delivering great lockdown and support that moves with you.

Integrated Traction

Integrated traction provides low-profile stability, maximum ground feel and comfort.

Product Details

  • Waterproof ripstop mesh upper with TPU overlays for breathable comfort and durability

Nike FI Impact Origins

Suzann Petterson teamed up with Nike to develop the first Nike Free-inspired golf shoe for women, incorporating technology from the innovative Nike TW ’13. A longtime advocate of traditionally spiked shoes, Petterson quickly realised she could harness as much power without the removable spikes. “After I tried them once, I was dying to get them on my feet in competition,” expressed Petterson. “I can really feel the ground and the increase in power through my swing.”

Nike Free Origins

After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university’s golf course, three of Nike’s most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure-measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion.

The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot’s natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.

The Nike Women Lunar Embellish: Lightweight Comfort and Customizable Design

BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 22, 2013) — Nike Golf designers tirelessly tinker with new technologies, new materials and new methods to create better products – it’s in their DNA. The Nike Golf Womennew Nike Lunar Embellish golf shoe, available at retail November 1, is a direct result of that relentless drive towards innovation.  It combines the four-shoes-in-one concept and fashionable, feminine appeal of its predecessor, the Nike Air Embellish, while delivering an updated, modernized design that is lighter and gives athletes more control at impact.

“The Nike Lunar Embellish was an exercise in refine and perfect,” says Lee Walker, Nike Golf Global Footwear Marketing Director. “It was important for us to evolve the best characteristics of the popular Air Embellish to make the new Lunar Embellish an even better-performing, sleeker-looking golf shoe – yet still retain the essence of what made the original Embellish so successful.”

The Nike Lunar Embellish is significantly lighter than the previous model, weighing in at only 8.6 ounces compared to 11.9 ounces in the Nike Air Embellish. The incorporation of lighter materials and a slimmer, more refined design keeps athletes comfortable and reduces fatigue, allowing them to forget about their feet and focus on their round. Lunarlon Technology provides responsive cushioning in the heel and works in conjunction with Integrated Traction on the outsole to provide control at impact.

One signature feature that hasn’t changed is the opportunity to customize the Nike Lunar Embellish with interchangeable color saddles. The shoe comes with two reversible saddles – four colors in total – allowing female golfers to match their shoes to their outfits, bags and more on any given day. The different saddle options, besides making it easier to accessorize, provide adjustable mid-foot support. A new water-resistant synthetic upper crafted with a no-sew technology film overlay provides additional support and durability throughout the entire length of the shoe.
