Nike Golf congratulates Jamie Lovemark on Midwest Classic win

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Nike Athlete Jamie Lovemark clinched his first victory in three years at the Midwest Classic on the Web.com Tour. On the final hole, Lovemark sank a 15-foot putt with his Nike Method 006 putter to win by one stroke.

This win marks a comeback for Lovemark, who recently has suffered with back injuries, resulting in surgery in August of 2011. After missing part of the 2011 season, Lovemark split his time between the PGA Tour and Web.com Tour in 2012.

"It feels great to be playing well again and this win is a huge relief for me," said Lovemark. "It was nice to finally put four good rounds together."

Averaging 320 yards off the tee with his Nike VR_S Covert driver, Lovemark played with a full bag of Nike clubs, including the Nike VR_S Covert fairway woods and the Nike VR Pro irons and wedges. He also uses the Nike 20XI X ball featuring more RZN technology. On the body, Lovemark wore apparel from Nike's Tour Performance Collection.
