Cavity-backed irons transformed the golf club industry more than 30 years ago, so it’s a surprise it’s taken this long for a cavity-backed driver to hit the market. It’s Nike who have done it, so their new VR_S Covert driver will probably soon be in the hands of a certain Northern Irish golfer.
It’s visually striking and the cavity back should provide more forgiveness on those all-too-familiar shots that don’t come out of the middle. It’s fully adjustable for loft and lie, too.
VR_S Covert £249 and VR_S Covert Tour £349. Available February, nike.com
