I met up with European Tour player Scott Jamieson to see how the recently launched Nike Covert 2.0 Tour driver and Nike RZN golf ball had benefitted the Nike athlete, as they like to call their Tour players.
Unlike a lot of players, Jamieson had put the Nike Covert 2.0 driver into play as soon as it was approved by the R&A at the 2013 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and since doing so the results have been very impressive. He now averages an extra 1.5 fairways a round because he says that the new face and stronger firewire design mean that more energy is transferred to the ball on mishits.
Not content with that, he put the Nike RZN golf ball in play the following week at the Portugal Masters and nearly broke 60 in the third round, agonisingly seeing his chip for 59 finish a foot short. Scott said the biggest difference for him was the softer sound of the RZN golf ball. This not only gave him better feel but he also felt the softer ball was gripped a little better by the club at impact.

Thanks to Scott Jamieson for his time and insight.
