Nicklaus Golf Equipment reports on new Compri clubs for women
ATLANTA -- With Jack Nicklaus’ desire to help grow the game, Nicklaus Golf Equipment has added a new line of women’s clubs to its 2007 portfolio designed especially to help get shots airborne easier from tee to green…and in doing so, the company is partnering with Sporting Woman Magazine by providing a complete set of Compri clubs, including putter and bag for each of the 19 green grass parties the magazine is sponsoring in the Atlanta area..
The Compri line is a step toward Jack’s goal of helping grow the game by putting high quality equipment made especially for the women golfer easily accessible and priced right,” says Jim Cormier, Director of Marketing for Jack Nicklaus Golf Equipment. “Partnering with Sporting Woman Magazine is one way to expose our Compri line. Compri products are available throughout Atlanta at Edwin Watts, G.O.L.F, Golf & Tennis Pro, Pro Golf, PGA Super Stores and Pines Golf Co0urse.” The Compri is available in a unique configuration of 3/3/3 (three woods, three hybrids and three irons). A matching putter and bag are available. Each club in the set has higher than normal lofts, making it easier for the woman to get her shots airborne especially for those just entering golf or those in the mid to high handicap range. For example, in the three woods, the set consists of a driver with a 15 degree loft; a three wood with 19 degrees and a five wood with 24 degrees.
Hybrids consist of a 6 at 28 degrees; 7 at 34 degrees and an 8 at 40 degrees. Irons are a 9 at 46 degrees; pitching wedge at 50 degrees and the sand wedge at 54 degrees. Made only for right hand players, all clubs use graphite ultra light flex shafts.
Compri features a titanium offset driver at 15 degrees which not only helps get the ball airborne, but helps generate distance and accuracy through the flexible ultra light shafts. The fairway woods are all oversized with generous offset with high lofts that place the point of impact under the center of the ball for quick high ball launch from any life. The mid-irons have a wider sole that features a lower center of gravity for optimum launch angle and precise control. The shafts are ultra-light with a low kick-point that increases swing speed.
“The women’s market is important to the growth of golf,” says Tony Dabbs, product manager for Jack Nicklaus Golf Equipment. “While there are many options for women to choose from, the Compri was especially designed to help new women golfers to have an easier time in learning the game and advancing their skill levels.
“Our research shows that one of the most frustrating aspects for the game in general and in particular with new golfers is getting the ball airborne and moving it toward the cup. Compri was designed with that in mind…and I think our product will not only be effective and eye appealing.” Sold as part of the Jack Nicklaus Premium Golf line, MSRP for Compri is $499.99 for the 3/3/3 set of clubs.
