This is why rory went over to Nike.
Rory McIlroy is now with Nike â€” 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.
" â€¦ 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.
