Nike Victory Red STR8-Fit Tour Fairway Woods available Jan. 28

Lucas Glover Nike VR FW Lucas Glover used a new Nike 15-degree Victory Red STR8-Fit Tour fairway wood at the season-opening SBS Championship last week in Hawaii (right). Nike has just announced that those clubs will be available to everyone starting Jan. 28.

Like the Victory Red STR8-Fit Tour driver, the steel-faced fairway woods allow golfers to pre-set the face of the club into one of 32 different positions to help create the desired ball flight.

The sole of the Victory Red STR8-Fit Tour fairway woods also features a red channel running behind the leading edge of the club. In the Victory Red driver, this channel goes all the way across the club, but in the fairway woods it is only runs along the heel and toe.

In a media release, Tom Stites, Nike Golf's director of club creation, said, "Our athletes prefer a smooth sole design for optimized playability on tight fairway lies. In order to achieve that, we split the compression channel on the sole to provide improved performance from every lie."

Another technology imported from Nike's drivers to these fairway woods is the Powerbow, which is essentially a weighted area running along the back section of the club that lowers the center of gravity and helps golfers get the ball into the air more easily.

The Victory Red STR8-Fit Tour fairway woods will be available in four lofts (13°, 15°, 17°, 19°) and come standard with Aldila Voodoo shafts for $299.
