Most Valuable Club: Nike Method Origin B1-01 prototype

Schwartzel’s Nike Method Origin B1-01 prototype hasn’t hit stores yet, but after seeing how the South African was rolling the rock on Sunday, it’s sure to be a top seller. Schwartzel had a mundane week on the greens until the final round where he made 144’9″ worth of putts. That distance allowed him to pick up 3.081 strokes on the field during the final round alone and eventually, the trophy.
