Real golfers tell us where Nike went wrong

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

@JamesWi886

“Nike didn’t have the tra­di­tion and her­itage of Titleist, Call­away etc. That’s vi­tal in golf. They are spe­cial­ist golf peo­ple”

@yeold­pro

“Their early equip­ment was in­fe­rior. By the time it was good peo­ple had writ­ten them off. Sad as Nike hard goods in ’16 were great”

@TomSnelling

“I’ve got Nike irons & put­ter but chang­ing as, for me, they’ve not pro­duced any clas­sics un­like

Ping (Anser) Titleist (Vokey) etc.”

@ron­niec­swartz

“Sim­ple, not a very good prod­uct for the av­er­age golfer. The pros have world class tal­ent and can make any club work. Ama­teurs don’t”
