Our favourite Nike Drivers that have ever been produced

Since Nike entered the golf industry in 1984, they have excelled in producing high-quality items such as clubs, balls and gear.

In 1996, Tiger Woods famously signed with the popular brand in a $40 million deal, which was an unprecedented amount of money for the sport at the time.

Rory McIlroy joined the Nike golf roster in 2013 in a staggering $200 million deal. Other players such as Charl Schwartzel, Anthony Kim and Suzann Petterson have all been sponsored by Nike in the past.

The company has produced many memorable drivers, from square-head designs to powerful tour heads and their club-making expertise are well-known.

Take a look at our favourite drivers that Nike have produced. 

NIKE SG SUMO 2 DRIVER

The Nike SasQuatch Sumo2 Driver, released in 2007, has a revolutionary new square design that resists twisting when balls are hit off-centre, resulting in straighter drives. The club has a high MOI which gives greater forgiveness on off-center hits. It also has updated body shaping for increased ball speed and accuracy.

NIKE GOLF VRS COVERT DRIVER

The VRS Covert driver is an eye-catcher on the course and the performance backs it up. The head is classy and the simple and independent adjustability increases the shelf appeal. The eye is drawn to the rich, red on the crown and the Nike Swoosh near the hosel.

NIKE VR TOUR DRIVER

The VR Tour driver has a 420cc head and a Project X low spin shaft and this contributes to a significant increase in distance. With this driver, Nike delivered a club with a tour head that was comparable with what tour professionals play with. 

NIKE VAPOR FLEX 440 DRIVER

The face and leading edge of the Vapor Flex 440 is made out of titanium and the rear section is made out of a lighter, stronger RZN material infused with Carbon Fibre. RZN is Nike's special material that they use where they need strength combined with light weight, and it was used in this popular driver.

NIKE IGNITE DRIVER

The Nike Ignite Driver uses exclusive NexTi club face material in combination with around the crown construction to maximise distance and and stability. It is forgiving and consistent on off-centre hits and the clubface dulls loud sounds.
