The Nike put­ter used by Rory McIl­roy since Septem­ber is fi­nally avail­able.

The Method Ori­gin range – fea­tur­ing two blades – makes the most of a RZN layer and poly­metal grooves for im­proved feel and roll.

The put­ters have a unique three-piece con­struc­tion where an in­te­grated RZN layer sits be­tween the face and a mass on the back.

Nike claims that the more off-cen­tre the hit, the more the RZN com­presses and the more en­ergy is re­turned to the ball.

You’ll also find tung­sten weights in the heel and toe to fur­ther im­prove for­give­ness, and new full-length poly­metal grooves that are de­signed to pro­vide a more con­sis­tent, ef­fi­cient and faster for­ward roll.

Speak­ing about his put­ter, McIl­roy said: “When I first tested it I re­alised the long putts kept rolling just a lit­tle bit more. It just kept rolling and rolling, which was awe­some.”

The newly de­signed face fea­tures twice the num­ber of poly­metal grooves found in pre­vi­ous Method put­ters. More grooves mean in­creased fric­tion on the ball’s cover, cre­at­ing ear­lier for­ward roll and a smoother, softer feel.

The Method Ori­gin B1-01 and B2-01 are both avail­able now with a pis­tol­style grip that is slightly wider at the top. They each cost £229.99.
