I think Nike has done a good job picking up a nice stable of players. Rory will drive a lot of golf sales imo but Noh SY has the appeal to Korea that was vacated with KJ departure from Nike.

This could be the year I build a all Nike bag....

Anybody know why the switch? Titleist 913 cannot make it?
Or Nike gave him more moolah?

Just curious.

Definitely more money from Nike if you ask me. At their level, I think it doesn't really matter what brand of clubs they use. Highest bidder wins.

Rory McIlroy is now with Nike — from head to toe.

In an elaborate, high-tech ceremony Monday at the Fairmont Hotel in Abu Dhabi, Nike officially welcomed the world's No. 1 player into its family of golfers. McIlroy signed a multiyear deal with the company and the famous Swoosh will be found on his clubs, ball, footwear, glove, apparel, headwear and accessories.

"I've always associated Nike with the best," McIlroy said at the announcement. "Growing up, whether it was golf, tennis, football, the best athletes were with Nike. I've watched Tiger Woods make history with Nike, and Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal. Now I want to create my own history with Nike.

" … Nike is a company and a brand that really resonates with me. It's young. It's athletic. It's innovative. They are committed to being the best."

Terms of the deal were not released, but several reports have said it is in the neighborhood of $200 million to $250 million over 10 years. If the deal with Nike is confirmed at $250 million, it would be the most lucrative endorsement ever negotiated in golf.
