Nike Vapor Pro Driver claims first professional victory

By: Golf Shake | Tue 30 Sep 2014 | Comments

It didn’t take long for the new Nike Vapor Pro driver, which made its debut this week, to prove its performance success on the professional tours. While Nike Golf athlete Rory McIlroy was bombing drives with the Nike Vapor Pro driver as part of the victorious European Ryder Cup team in Scotland, there was another professional Nike athlete benefitting from the new Nike driver - China’s Hao Tong Li.

Li, who just last week was at The Oven getting fitted with the new volt driver, won his first professional victory at the Jianye Tianzhu Henan Open on the PGA Tour China. In cold and wet weather conditions, Li took his first PGA Tour China Series title by eight strokes, the second-largest winning margin in Series’ history. Li joins fellow Nike athlete Xin-Jun Zhang as having won on the 2014 PGA Tour China Series.

“I just tested the Vapor driver last week at the Oven and decided to put it into play right after testing,” said Li. “It gives me lower spin and high trajectory, which is exactly what I want. I hit it longer and it’s more stable. The volt color is so outstanding.”

Li also sported apparel from Nike Golf’s Performance Collection and the Lunar Waverly shoe.
