It's about the time of the golf season when equipment companies start coming out with the "alternate uniform" version of whatever new technology they released back in January.

In Nike's case, it's the Matte Black Covert 2.0 driver and I can't make fun of it because it's freaking awesome.

I've hit the red version -- which I love -- but this thing is on a whole other level.

"The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver offers a unique, limited-edition design combined with Nike's high speed cavity back technology," said Rob Arluna, Nike Golf Global Golf Club Business Director.

"The black matte finish on the head provides a sleek, modern aesthetic and eliminates glare. The black grip and shaft give the driver a stealth, covert look."

I have to agree. Big fan.

The Covert 2.0 Matte Black Edition driver will be available on and at select retailers May 15, 2014. Available in right hand only (sorry, Shane Bacon).
