Nike TW ’13 Review

I’m no Jack Palmer or Arnold Nicklaus, but I don’t mind swinging the old iron sometimes (if that’s a phrase). I also live behind a golf course, so, there’s that. When I received Nike’s new TW ’13s, I excitedly slapped them on my feet and walked them over to the greens for a test. Style-wise, Tiger’s new shoes sport a classic white with black trim motif (or choose black with grey trim), with a little bit of grey around the laces and down the side near the heel, and a tiny touch of Tiger red on the last ringlet.

Nike TW’ 13 – Tiger Woods’ New Golf Shoe

Tiger Woods’ victory yesterday featured this wicked chip shot; was it the shoes? Mmmm, probably not, but that makes for a nice segue for this piece.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13

Here’s how you max out your fun meter with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 ($59.99). Set up the Kinect or Move controller if you have an Xbox or PS3 respectively, then use the incredibly detailed character generator to make your golfer look like Elin Nordegren. This way, after you level up your player and climb the rankings, you’ll set up one of the all time great showdowns in sports: ex-husband vs. ex-wife for all the marbles–and we know how much you love marbles. Even if your short game is off, there’s no way Tiger will be able to focus when he sees his old flame being controlled by your grubby hands.
