Nike Golf announces the global launch of TUV Rheinland Group's Brand Protection Service for its golf club lines. The solution provides authenticity verification as well as product track and trace features using an Internet-based system.

TUV's solution addresses multiple aspects of product control, risk management, and brand protection. It provides Nike Golf the unique flexibility to adapt to future changes in counterfeit technology while supporting diverse product applications.
