Divotman - End of a saga
Divotman Begins - 10/11/2011
Divotman Returns - 9/4/2012
and now for the thrilling conclusion...
It was a warm sunny day, the type of day begging to be spent on a golf course, but there was an ominous feeling to the light breeze passing through. Perhaps a bout of mid afternoon rain, or a lighting storm waiting to pass through, or perhaps something much worse. Whatever was lurking just beyond the moment, DIVOTMAN knew he needed to stay alert.
Her parents were once again in tears mourning the loss of her older brother. Today it was a visit from Aldila a close family friend that had set them off. She had spent the past two years attempting to be the perfect daughter, doing everything possible to fill the hole left by her brother’s absence, but ultimately ended up being ignored. She could not bear being ignored any longer, she needed to act.
Visiting the bad side of the warehouse was a risk, but one she had to take. She needed help, an army of products at her side, she would reunite her uncle’s old crew. She knew she could find plenty of hold-outs, other products not willing to lower their prices, refusing to be sold at a discount; the question was if she could find enough. She went door to door, recruiting products from her own family as well as TaylorMade, Callaway, and even Cobra. Fully assembled they went on the hunt.
DIVOTMAN stood watch from the top rack when he first saw them, a large group of unruly product. “I better check this out” he thought to himself, as he swooped down to hard concrete floor of the warehouse. Just as he approached the floor he recognized the distinctive VR mark of his old nemesis. On closer inspection though, this club was different, it seemed faster, stronger, and had just the right feminine touch.
As DIVOTMAN touched down in front of her, she prepared herself, and shouted, “I’m here to avenge my older brother and my uncle, and you will pay for what you’ve done!” The group of product behind her screamed out in excitement. “I am the the VR-S women’s hybrid, and you will not dispatch of me quite as easily!”
“You have to understand,” DIVOTMAN replied, “what I do, I do for the benefit of golfers everywhere. You are all excellent products, but not every golfer can afford your suggested retail price. I’m here to help, by slashing your prices I ensure you never end up in cold storage, but instead find your way onto the golf course. This is what I did for your family and this is what I will do for you, but only if you want.”
VR-S had always dreamed of being of being on a golf course, she didn’t realize that’s where she would end up after being slashed. Quickly her comrades in arms started calling out, “Me next, me next!” Every product dreams of being on a golf course, how could she have been so dumb. Sure she missed her brother, but he was in a better place. She stepped forward and volunteered, ending a family feud between NIKE clubs and DIVOTMAN that had lasted generations.
The VR-S is the fastest, longest hybrid Nike has ever produced. It outdistances all others by combining two big advantages: It launches easier and flies farther. It features the NexCOR face technology maximizes distance for the widest range of players through a new speed-expanding multi face thickness design. The NexCOR infinity design creates a bridge for ultra-thin, ultra-hot faces and unmatched ball speed from every club in the bag. The L-FACE TECHNOLOGY positions the weld on the sole to allow for an expanded maximum COR zone from the middle to lower on the face where the majority of fairway shots are struck.
