RESPECTING THE PAST

Inspired by some of the most popular putter models of the past four decades, Nike and Priority Designs collaborated to bring a modern aesthetic to classic putter design. A unique arc design profile creates a “high toe” appearance across the family, bringing a distinctive view from the face and at address. Machined stainless steel finishes communicate precision, and CNC tolerances provide manufacturing consistency that wasn’t available 40 years ago. Finally, an iconic family brand language was established with clean surfacing, and automotive paint applications were applied to be viewable on camera during the PGA tour, without being distracting to the player at address.

METHOD MOD 90

Based on the classic bullseye putter, the Method Mod 90 builds on a putter design tradition that was originally introduced nearly 70 years ago. The heel and toe weights add stability, making the putter play about 10% larger than it appears.

METHOD MOD 30

The Method Mod 30 is reminiscent of Anser putters and is complimentary to Nike’s own Method 001 used on tour. The arc profile and square detailing update this historic, traditional body style.

METHOD MOD 00

The Method Mod 00 mallet style pays homage to the zebra putter dating back to the 1970’s. The historic alignment grooves exist in a low cavity of the putter, adding to a stable, modern feel.
