When Tiger Woods returns to action this week — his first tournament play since Fall 2015 — he’ll come equipped with a prototype of his latest signature golf shoe, the Nike TW ’17.

“This shoe is an absolutely integral part of my return to the sport I love and have missed so much,” Woods says. “Nike really got in the zone with me. I knew Tobie and I were on to something special back when I tried on the first prototype. I feel supreme support from this shoe which leads to the utmost confidence when I step onto the course.”

Since July 2015, Woods and the Nike team, led by Tobie Hatfield, Nike Senior Director of Athlete Innovation, reimagined the 14-time major champion’s signature footwear. The team leveraged the additional time they had with Woods to start at the very beginning and address his needs as his rehab progressed.

The NIke TW ’17 will be available in Spring 2017. Stay tuned to @nikegolf for more information.
