Nike Golf has popped up in a number of controversial issues over the last few years. There were Phil Mickelson’s comments regarding Nike’s ‘inferior’ golf products, and last year’s commercial with a stoic-faced yet apologetic Tiger Woods stirred up some debate regarding Nike’s recognition as a marketing giant. However, the Nike Golf roster is one of the strongest in the sport, which includes Stewart Cink – the 2009 British Open champ. Cink was seen wearing this unreleased Nike Trainer 1 PE during that tournament, which featured ‘NIKE GOLF’ on the heel, ‘VR Knows’ and the Claret Cup on the tabs behind the tongue, and a golf-associated plaid print on the ankle collar.
