Guess What I'm Doing Tomorrow?!
By Kickntrue on 11/2/09
Seriously, I tried. I was going to go all day without telling you guys about my trip to the Nike Oven tomorrow in Dallas, but it slipped out!
While you suckers are working (sleeping, eating, heck, even playing golf) I'm going to be inside Nike's golf research and testing facility known as The Oven.
Will I take pictures? Sure
Will I write all about the experience? Sure
Will I go through their fitting process for clubs? Yep!
Will you be extremely jealous of me? I really hope so.
I've been told I can take pictures of most things but there are a couple "areas" I'll be viewing that are off limits for pictures and to talk about. Must be where they tinker with the wiring on Tiger Woods. Anyway- if you have any specific questions- leave them in the comments below- and I'll make sure to ask them.

so are you paying for this awesome experience or is it perks of the job? what about the clubs? are you getting a whole custom set driver thru wedges?
oh ya I HATE YOU!
i'm in Dallas! can you come over and pick me up? we'll head over to the Hank Haney Golf Ranch right after and hit some balls at the range!
Try to pick up a couple of "Addict Giveaways" while you are there.
We'll see what we can do boys!
Does Nike have any new hybrids in the works? Specifically Dymos (regular and squared). Also how would one get the tour edition Dymo driver? It has a smaller head (something like 380cc), and I've never been a fan of 460 drivers. Any plans to offer a driver like that at retail?
@chief_broom- great question. i'll try to get an answer.
yeah chief, great question, i want one of those drivers too. all the great new technology in a smaller head, I also need some shoes, shirts, rain-gear, caps, golf bag, irons, wedges, a putter, and some balls. Oh yeah, does nike have pants? I better get a pair if they do. christmas list complete,... I think
So because you're off having all this fun means the announcement of ME winning the Sky Caddie is postponed huh??? LOL - have fun Dude, it looks like a blast to do.
If you can ask one question for me I would be extremely greatful, here goes. "why did they decide to go away from the design of the original Slingshot Tour Irons and make the OSS and now the 4D." I mean seriously I loved my Slingshot tours, I thought they were almost perfect, but after 5 years of use, I went to upgrade, and nike didnt make a club that felt as good as the original Slingshots, so I had to switch brands. Thanks.
Oh yeah, I wont be hating you, I will be working, but work is not work for me I love what I do. Jealous of you, most definitely, but hate, never, I am always glad when others get to do once in a lifetime things, I know I have had my fair share of them, like the catapult shot off of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and the trap a few days later when we landed back onboard in the Med. Have fun and give us all the details you can.
He buddy, NOT EVERYTHING IS IN DALLAS. The OVEN is in Fort Worth and there is a difference between Fort Worth and Dallas.
