Rory Standing Pat With Nike Equipment

With Nike Golf announcing that they would be getting out of the hard goods side of the industry, Rory McIlroy instantly became golf’s most sought-after equipment free agent. Finally comfortable with his Nike equipment — sans the putter, which he has already changed out for a Scotty Cameron mallet — McIlroy said he was in no hurry to sign on with another equipment company.

The decision makes sense for McIlroy, who isn’t really hurting for the endorsement cash a new set of sticks would bring. Instead, he’s taking his time looking for a new brand to put in his bag. He said that the process of changing clubs, if it does happen, will be gradual. 

That’s a pretty good endorsement for the Nike clubs many believe to be inferior equipment.
