Nike Golf plans to capitalize on its success with its award-winning CPR clubs, with the addition of CPR 3 hybrids and metalwoods to its range.
I loved the original CPR wood, which introduced the rather obscure ‘Clubs for Prevention and Recovery’ initials. It was uncannily straight, though lacking the power and penetration that subsequent brands like TaylorMade and Callaway have been able to achieve with their respective Duals and Heavenwoods.
However, Nike is convinced that these new and distinctive cerise-coloured clubs will help golfers, challenged by getting the ball airborne and hitting accurate shots from all types of lies, achieve more confidence.
The CPR 3 ‘Iron-wood’ retains the scoop back design in the head but with a low centre of gravity, while the smaller head assists a more penetrating trajectory, says Nike. It has 18, 21 and 24 degree lofts for both right and left-handers.
The shorter-shafted CPR 3 wood, features a more traditional, slightly larger head and wider sole to help sweep the ball from semi-rough with 18, 22 and 24 degree options.
Prices for both, with graphite shafts, is recommended at £99.
