Any chance down the road that us mortals will be able to purchase a full club fitting for new clubs at the Oven? Kind of similar to what TM does at their kingdom?

Thanks to NIKE for giving us some time here at Golfwrx.

1) Is Nike where you imagined when you truly started into golf @13 years ago?
2) At any point was there any discussion of letting Tiger go after his mishaps?
3) Will there be a TW line of clubs ...I.e. the same clubs he plays.....a la the TW apparel?
4) Will Rory be getting his own apparel line as well?
5) I would also like to know the availability of the tips as has been asked previously.

Nike allows people to customize some of the most popular shoes and some clothing through Nikeid, but not with golf. Is there plans to open that up to Nike Golf anytime soon?
Are there any plans to make a "driving iron" in the near future, and if so will it be available in Lefty?
Can you release the Method 003 in LH?

Tony may not remember this as I think he was still with Nicklaus at the time, but NikeiD did have an option for Nike Golf balls. This was back when NikeiD first started, but unfortunately this product was pulled from NikeiD for one reason or another. Remember that NikeGolf does offer some limited golf ball customization, but the last few promos for ball customization have been done through NikeGolf dealers.

Hello and welcome. My question is on the Covert drivers. Why did you go away from the compression channel and into a cavity back type driver? What are the benefits in terms of launch, spin, forgiveness, and ball speed?

First off thanks to Nike Golf and WRX for the opportunity to ask these important questions. I will have to tell you I have yet to put into play a nike Driver but I am very excited about the Covert line. Here are a couple of questions I have:

1) Can you tell us a little about the differences between the Preformance and Tour Drivers. We are mostly aware that the Preformance is 460cc and the Tour is 440cc I believe, but what are the other major characteristic differences?

2) Once we heard about the Covert line on WRX we were all excited to see what additional shaft offerings there might be. When visiting your website there does not appear to be much information regarding upgrade shafts. Is there the ability to get this information somewhere?

I have hit both the Preformance and the Tour and they are very nice golf clubs. I think you will do very well with this new line. Congradualtions!!!!

Have you ever considered producing a "pre" junior line of equipment for the very youngest of golf beginners?

Thank you for the time.....Kadin

Will there be an update to the VRS Forged Irons? I loved the VRS Forged, and it's the one iron from Nike that fits my game. Covert Forged Irons perhaps?

I've read much about the new Covert driver in regards of lower spin but have not seen much in depth information about forgiveness. What are some specific attributes to do with the forgiveness of the Covert when hit high, low, or off-center from the sweet spot?

I have seen the list and I do believe that the "Nike" project X shaft is still available through custom at no upcharge. The "real" one is also available but costs more...

There alot of good questions so far, some....not so good... Looking forward to the live chat and seeing what the answers will be. Hopefully the members here can make it as enjoyable for the Nike guys as it will be for us, repeat visits will surely be a good thing.

My only point rather than a question relates to the way Nike Golf is marketed and sold in Australia. Will Nike Golf [u][b]PLEASE[/b][/u] do something about the arrangement they currently have with GolfWorld/GolfMart and remedy the atrocious service we as golfers receive from this arrangement??

Every other OEM has their own dividsion here and as such is very well represented. The clowns that stock Nike Golf through whatever exclusive arrangement that exists make life hard for us Australian Nike Golf fans.

Thanks.
