When you think of Nike Golf, you often think of Tiger Woods wearing his famous Sunday red in pursuit of victory. Well thanks to the Nike VR_S Covert hybrid, and the rest of the Covert range, you are likely to see even more red on golf courses in the future.

The eye-catching red colour on the VR_S Covert range is sure to catch the eye of golfers across the world, but we heard from Tom Stites, Nike's Director of Club Creation, on what is behind the red colour.

He said "With the combination of High Speed Cavity Back, FlexLoft, and NexCOR technology, we are able to maximise distance, control, and consistency for every club in the bag. Athletes now have the performance they demand, as well as adaptability for any condition."

Whilst the standard VR_S Covert hybrid model does not feature the Dual Axis adjustability (featured in the Tour version), it does contain the same NexCOR face as the rest of the Covert range. The high speed face varies thickness behind the clubface to produce faster ball speeds. Nike engineered the face specifically to offer more speed from the bottom half of the face, where they have found most golfers are likely to make contact.
