Nike Golf launches new Nike Verdana club set designed for women

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Nike Golf brings performance designed specifically for women to its latest women's club set, the Nike Verdana.

Designed from the grip down, the Verdana line is the lightest women's set ever produced by Nike Golf. Lightweight materials and construction from top to bottom combine to deliver faster swing speeds and more control.

The Nike Verdana set is a total game solution that includes 11 clubs: driver, 3 fairway wood, 4-6 hybrids, 7-PW, SW, putter, and a matching carry bag. This holistic full-set design takes distance gapping, trajectory, and spin profiles into account, producing a set engineered just for women.

"The set was designed specifically for female athletes looking to maximize distance and control," said Tom Stites, Director of Club Product Creation. "With this ultra-light set, slower swing speeds can now gain more distance without sacrificing control the course demands."

The Nike Verdana driver is ultra-lightweight with a 460cc head designed with additional loft for higher trajectory. An 18-degree 3 fairway wood features a low center of gravity in a large breadth profile for more forgiveness and easier ball striking. Hybrids feature wide soles and deeper iron-like faces with a slight offset. This allows athletes more forgiveness from a variety of angles and lies.

Irons and wedges include a wider sole design, larger face profiles, and variable face thickness for added distance. The Nike Verdana putter features a classic-shaped heel-toe weighted blade putter.

The Nike Verdana set also includes a fashionable carry bag, which utilizes a lightweight ergonomic design for ease of use, even weight distribution and improved comfort. The bag is highly versatile as it was designed to be used on a cart, but includes a stand with a dual strap for carrying.

The Nike Verdana set is available in standard and petite (-1") lengths stores around the globe now.
