As the first page of the leaderboard fights its way down the stretch in the 109th U.S. Open, Nike has to be pleased with Lucas Glover’s putting performance throughout the tournament – and the season. Glover is using a Nike prototype putter this week, and has been for some time. Year-to-date on the PGA Tour, he’s 23rd in putts per round and 32nd in putting average. Last year, he was 116th and 107th, respectively.
The prototype isn’t out yet, but it is in the bags of Stephen Ames, Justin Leonard, Paul Casey, Stewart Cink, Bo Van Pelt, Charl Schwartzel and Trevor Immelman. One wonders whether this might be the model that makes a Nike putter guy out of long-time putter holdout Tiger Woods, who uses a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Newport 2.
