You can play the new Nike VR_S Covert Driver first on World Golf Tour, before Nike releases the real driver to the rest of the world.
The first thing you'll notice about the Nike Covert Driver is the striking red clubhead, which is sure to make a statement on any virtual tee. And while the Nike Covert Driver definitely provides more distance (especially carry distance) and good overall performance, the really exciting part about this new virtual driver is the Nike FlexLoft option.
In a first on World Golf Tour, when you buy the virtual Nike Covert Driver, you will actually get three drivers for the price of one, each with a different lofts, including...
- Nike Covert 8.5 degree Driver - lower trajectory to keep the ball down, get more roll, and less wind impact
- Nike Covert 10.5 degree Driver - medium trajectory for overall performance
- Nike Covert 12.5 degree Driver - higher trajectory to get less roll and more precise driving, but more impact from the wind
WGT players typically equip just 1 driver for each round, based on the course and wind conditions, but you can also choose to carry more than one driver in your bag (in virtual or real golf). You just have to decide what other club you'll remove, for example some players choose to play with 2 drivers and only 1 three-wood or hybrid. It's all part of the game.
The virtual Nike Covert Driver unlocks for top players on World Golf Tour at Level 50 and Level 75, and is sure to become one of the most popular drivers in the game.
The Real Nike Covert Driver
Golfers may also be interested in the real-world Nike Covert Driver. Last month, a few of us had a chance to hit the real driver, and it's pretty awesome. In fact, the new sound on WGT when you hit the virtual driver is the actual sound from us hitting the real driver, at the Presidio Golf Club driving range in San Francisco.
