Nike Golf announced today that the company has signed major champion and professional putting guru Dave Stockton to assist with the development and design of new Nike putters and other products.
Stockton says, “I look forward to sharing my putter insights with Nike engineers so they can continue to create amazing products that help golfers putt better.”
Stockton (pictured here with his two sons, Ron and Dave, Jr.) is the author of The Art of Scoring, and his short game students have included Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Suzann Petterson. As a professional golfer, Stockton won 10 tournaments, including two majors. Stockton was previously aligned with TaylorMade Golf.
We are looking forward to what Stockton brings to the putter design table at Nike Golf. The Method putter line has matured into Nike’s most successful family of putters, but it’s probably time for something new, and that’s where Stockton comes in.
