Review: Nike Covert Tour 2.0 3-wood
Once I got this club on the course I found it to be an absolute beast off the tee. I really is a “mini” driver. I had incredible confidence off the tee with this 3-wood. I could step-up and bomb it down the fairway. It was a few yards shorter than my driver, but it was straighter and offered more options off the tee. I could hit it high to clear some trees or I could play it low and cheat the wind. I really liked it on tight driving holes or holes when I wanted to lay-up short of trouble. It served as the perfect “mini” driver.
Off the fairway it took a couple swipes to get the feel of this club. The black face almost seemed like it was on-set. By that I mean it almost appeared to be in front of the shaft, instead of many which might have even a little off-set. But once I learned it was really just an optical illusion, I swung away with confidence and had virtually the same results as I did off the tee: control of trajectory and accuracy at the target.
Nike continues to make great progess with their golf clubs. Each year they push forward with new ideas and new technologies. The Covert Tour 2.0 3-wood is another example of improving their previous product. This 3-wood is a “Mini-Me” of the Covert Tour 2.0 Driver. If you like the driver, you will love the 3-wood. It is just a deflated looking version of it, with performance just a little less than the driver, just like you want. It is a true “Mini-Me” of the Covert Tour 2.0 Driver.
