Nike Golf’s research and design facility in Fort Worth, Texas, is dubbed the Oven. The facility drives Nike Golf innovation, with the brand's engineers and designers obsessing over every tenth of a millimeter, which can sway detrimental degrees of launch angles. It's from the Oven that Nike's new Vapor Fly clubs emerge, designed to provide an overall higher launch angle. In the words of Nike Golf Director of Engineering Nate Radcliffe, "We've verified that if we can launch the ball higher, while managing spin, it will ultimately fly farther." Nike Golf athlete Rory McIlroy, who was instrumental in developing the Vapor Fly Pro driver, lauds its forgiveness: "It’s phenomenal to know that when you have a very forgiving driver like this, even if you don’t quite catch [the ball] off the middle of the face or put a good swing on it, that it still has a chance to go the same distance and be in the fairway as if you hit a good shot." Look for the Nike Vapor Fly series clubs to launch in January 2016.
