On Sunday, Tiger wears his trademark Nike reda color that reflects his confidence, power and authority. Nike sets a benchmark for golf clothing that makes women and men golfers feel in control and comfortable.
I am a believer in Nike workout clothing but only have had a couple outfits in the womens golf collection. Therefore, when I decided to review the Nike Golf collections (men and women); I was excited to see, feel and evaluate the suggested quality performance. Would I see a more dynamic and less conservative side? Would the quality and performance deliver results? Here are my two cents!
Let me start with Nike Golf mens line, which includes the Tech Essentials, Mens SP Tour Collection, Tiger Woods Collection and the new Tiger Woods Platinum. WOW! Yes, one wordWOW! The Mens SP Tour Collection golf shirts color palette is vivid and energetic, the design and pattern is lively and the fit is accommodating yet athletic (you might have to go up a size). The Nike swoosh is cleverly placed. Nikes innovation of performance driven materials allow a man extended movement, repels water, protects, cools and is lightweight; the DriFit is excellent! Some signature pieces are Placed Argyle Polo, Nike Sphere React Cool Polo, SP UV Mesh Polo and SP Shoulder Graphic Polo. The slacks are from the Tech Essentials line and are a swanky style that does not weigh you down, cling to you or heat you up rather they display your sense of style, keeps you cool, protects and heats up your play. Their signature pieces are the Mens Plaid Pant and the Striped Pant.
Tiger Woods Collection and new to be introduced Tiger Woods Platinum continues its class with a distinct, luxury appeal (Tiger, way to go on your lines!) His golf shirts are rich and defined in color, the designs and details are smart and artful. The quality and performance is succulent to touch and provide modern performance. He is also introducing sweaters and coats that carry the same classy yet suave appeal. The Tiger Woods Collections signature pieces are the Drop Needle Polo, Cable Washable Wool Sweater. The Tiger Woods Platinum line signature pieces include the DriFIT Tech Pique Polo, Dr FIT Camo Polo and Full Zip Bonded Coat. Men, you will look fantastic in any of the Nikes Golf lines!
Now, let me turn my attention to Nike Golf for women. Ladies, Nike did not leave you in the cold rather they developed a dynamic, smart and comfortable golf line for you! WOW AGAIN! Comfort, ease and fashion forward style is what women love and the Nike Womens Collection nailed all three. Their DriFIT is beautiful in every sense of the word. Their material performance innovation glides with your every move, keeps you cool, protects, repels water and has an ample fit yet athletic. It does not restrict you, bind or bunch up, or weigh you down. Their spectacular color palette is vivid and gives the woman golfer or non-golfer confidence in themselves.
Recently, they introduced a variety of modern and lively patterns and designs breaking out of their conservative mold, nice touch! I wore a few of their signature pieces and definitely feel and see the evolution of their womens collection. Their Womens Collection signature pieces include Diamond Polo, matching cover up Argyle V-neck Sweater and coordinating Classic Plaid Jacket and Classic Plaid Short. The Tech Essential for women include a signature piece called the Womens Nike Tech Novelty Short. I love it all!
I asked Doug Wood, Global Director, Apparel, Footwear and Accessories- Nike Golf about what makes Nike Golf unique. He states, The ability to combine best in class material and performance innovation, the unique insights that only the worlds greatest golfers can provide to enhance and improve the playability and comfort of our product, and great style, color and cut for wear on and off course.
The entire Nike Golf Collection is bold and lively, provides excellent performance and durability and easy care. Nike also sells golf shoes and accessories to outfit the golfer. I highly recommend and believe in Nike Golf for the player, in a business casual setting, vacationer to running errands. The price of Nike Golf clothing is appropriately priced starting at $45.00. You can find Nike Golf at NIke.com, specialty golf shops, sporting good stores, green grass golf shops and department stores.
