We all knew this was coming, especially as leaked pictures started to surface recently. However, as of 9:30am EDT, Rory McIlroy was officially announced as signing with Nike Golf for the full meal deal of clubs, balls, apparel, footwear and accessories.
It was a very cool announcement by Nike Golf today from the UAE, as Nike Golf President Cindy Davis introduced Rory McIlroy, along with video welcomes from Wayne Rooney, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods and Phil Knight.
We also saw a very cool commercial of Tiger and Rory battling on the driving range.
Rory is playing the VR Pro Blades, the VR_S Covert Tour and the 20XI-X ball this week at Abu Dhabi.
Rory has finished in 2nd place at this event in 2011 and 2012.
Welcome to Nike Golf, Rory. I can’t wait to see you battle with Tiger, Ross Fisher, Schwartzel, Watney, Casey and all of the other talented Nike Golf Athletes.
Here’s the commercial with Tiger;
