Nike Golf Introduces Tiger Woods Limited Edition Footwear for 2007 Majors
Beginning at The Masters, Special Shoes Honor Woods 10 Years of Major Championship Dominance-
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Tiger Woods winning his first major championship at The Masters in 1997, and as a tribute to his 10 years of major championship dominance, Nike Golf is introducing Tiger Woods (TW) Limited Edition footwear.
The TW Limited Edition comprises four different styles of the popular SP 8 TW Tour, each designed specifically for the major championships in 2007.
Woods will debut the first Limited Edition style, available at retail on April 1, 2007, during The Masters from April 5-8, 2007.
The remaining Tiger Woods Limited Edition styles worn by Woods at the U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship will be available at retail on June 1, July 1 and August 1, respectively, at a suggested retail price of Cdn$229.99 at select retail stores and golf shops.
To differentiate from Nike Golfs standard SP 8 TW Tour, the TW Limited Edition features a distinctive TW 10 logo laser etched on the heel, as well as a Tiger Woods Foundation logo inside the shoe.
The SP 8 TW Tour has been a very popular shoe among consumers and, as such, is selling extremely well, said Mike Forsey, Category Business Director for Nike Golf.
We felt it was fitting to honour Tigers success in the majors by creating special shoes that are symbolic of his 10 years of major championship dominance while, at the same time, contributing to a foundation that is so important to him.

The Masters “ white/dark army
U.S. Open “ carmel/bronze
The Open Championship “ black/varsity crimson
The PGA Championship “ white/black dusty red
