In response, Nike Golf Canada announced that it is offering three options to Canadian consumers of the SUMO² drivers in conjunction with its Conformance Program:
They can trade their SUMO² driver (Cdn suggested retail price $499.99) for a SUMO driver (Cdn SRP $399.99) and a SQ Fairway wood (Cdn SRP $249.99)
Or they may ask for a full refund at the location where they purchased the club
Or they can submit their SUMO² for testing to Nike Golf Canada between May 1 and June 1
To ensure that Canadian golfers who purchased the SUMO² driver are treated fairly, we are offering them three options, said Mike Kelly, General Manager of Nike Golf Canada. The error in manufacturing that led to some of the clubs being non-conforming was unintentional, but Nike Golf takes full responsibility for it.
Nike Golf Canada wants to ensure that Canadian golfers can enjoy their SUMO2 driver with peace of mind. We are guided by the same principles of fair play and goodwill that are the foundation for the Rules of Golf.
Nike Golf Canada has purchased a machine to test the clubs in Toronto. Clubs that pass the test will be etched with a defining mark of full compliance to USGA regulations. Non-conforming clubs will be replaced at no cost to the consumer. All costs relating to testing will be done at Nike Golf Canadas expense.
