allow for an expanded
maximum COR (Coef-
ficient of Restitution)
zone from the middle to
lower on the face, where
the majority of fairway
shots are struck. That
means the VR_S is sup-
posed to be hotter where
players are most apt to
hit their golf balls.
As for the VR_S hy-
brids, they feature that same
NexCOR technology and improved
aerodynamics as the VR_S fairways, and
the weld on the sole is also positioned to
produce that expanded COR zone of the
clubface, which is made of a high-strength
steel alloy. This product is also available in four
lofts – 2H ( 18 degrees), 3H ( 21 degrees), 4H ( 24
degrees) and 5H ( 27 degrees) – and comes with
a Nike Fubuki K HY stock shaft.
“By taking a holistic approach to how we’ve
designed every club in the VR_S line, we’ve been
able to deliver more speed and more distance,”
says Tom Stites, director of club creation for
Nike Golf. “The new fairways and hybrids are
ultra fast, and they are designed to get you to the
green more quickly – and in fewer strokes.” l
The Nike VR_S line uses NexCOR
variable face thickness for
greater speed at impact.

As the rollout of new products at the 2012
PGA Merchandise Show demonstrated, this is
very much the “Year of the Fairway Metal.”
At the same time, the release of several
new hybrid models at that Orlando, Fla., gath-
ering created a fair amount of buzz of its own.
And among those clubs attracting the most
attention in both those categories were new
offerings from Nike Golf’s VR_S line.
Let’s start with the VR_S fairways. Available
in four lofts, from 3W ( 15 degrees) to 7W ( 21
degrees) and with a Nike Fubuki K FW stock
shaft, they are designed to utilize enhanced
aerodynamics, and the company’s NexCOR
variable face thickness technology to create
greater speed at impact for greater distance.
A face insert made from a lightweight, stain-
less steel alloy and shaped in an L is geared
to enhance length as well, and Nike engineers
positioned the weld on the sole of this club to
