Russell Henley captured his second PGA TOUR title with a birdie on the first playoff hole at The Honda Classic. Henley recently switched to Nike's new VR_S Covert 2.0 fairway woods (3- and 5-wood) and RZN Black ball.
The low-spin VR_S Covert 2.0 fairway woods feature a redesigned cavity-back with Fly-Brace technology that ties the sole and the crown together, making the rear portion of the club head more stable. The end result is more energy transferred to the face at impact, and increased ball speeds — up to eight extra yards — when compared to last year's version.
RZN Black is low-spin, four-piece ball that has Nike's new resin Speedlock core technology. The interlocking core design -- the core’s surface is similar to that of a waffle iron -- interconnects with the compression layer to form a more cohesive bond that delivers more energy through impact.
Here's a look at the rest of the clubs in Henley's bag.
