In celebration of the first golf major of the 2012 PGA Tour season, Nike Golf will be making available a special limited edition “Masters” Collection. The collection will feature unique colorways of the Nike Lunar Control shoes, the Nike Method Concept putter and Nike 20XI golf balls. Green and yellow adorn the collection, matching the tournament’s prestigious Green Jacket that is made for the winner. With Tiger Woods getting back into a winning groove, plenty of eyes will be on Augusta next weekend.
Select members of the golf media have received their packages from Nike Golf ahead of release and the set up is quite phenomenal. The putter and shoes come housed perfectly in a unique box that features a smoked glass slide-out window. Along with the golf balls, the shoe will come with a special dust bag and the putter will have a matching green and yellow cover.

The “Masters” Collection will be available on April 2nd, which is also a big day for another branch in the Nike tree. The price has not been revealed for the Collection, but MSRP of the Method Concept putter is $239 (RH and 34″ only) and the Lunar Control is $190. While it is not clear if the special box is included in the Collection, expect to pay a premium on top of the premium it already cost to buy the putter and shoes. Interested parties will only be limited to 2 packages per customer.
Here is the product information by Nike Golf…
Nike Lunar Control (Limited Edition) Men’s Golf Shoe
Nike designers obsessed over every detail to transform this shoe into something truly special with tasteful broguing, premium leather and a green and yellow color scheme that strikes the right chord. Lunarlon cushioning in the heel is ultra-lightweight for excellent comfort and the Nike Power Platform outsole offers the stability and balance the game requires. An accompanying linen shoe bag represents the caddie uniform for a perfect complement to this unique version of a groundbreaking shoe.
Nike Method Concept C1 RH (Limited Edition) Golf Putter
This revolutionary putter blends art and science to give you a smoother stroke and truer roll with less skid for a more precise stroke. How did Nike do it? Engineers created just the right balance of a lightweight aluminum face and heavier stainless steel body resulting in a high MOI-to-head ratio putter. It has the stability of the largest mallets of the game with a small blade-like form and premium, crafted style.
Nike 20XI – X (Green Swoosh Limited Edition) Golf Balls
Rounding out this collection is the ball that helps generate longer distance off the tee and more controlled shots on the green. With a lighter resin core and heavier outer layers never before seen in the industry, internal tests have shown, on average, a two to three mph increase in ball speed. A one mph increase equates to two to three yards carry distance. And that’s an advantage you don’t have to be playing in a Major to appreciate.
