Equipment: McIlroy joins Nike

By Jonathan Wall, PGATOUR.COM Equipment Editor

Golf’s recruiting season came to a close on Monday, and as expected, it ended with a bang, as Nike announced the signing of Rory McIlroy to a head-to-toe multi-year deal.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although The Associated Press reported that the deal was worth $200 million.

McIlroy, who opens the season this week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship will have 14 Nike clubs in the bag this week -- including a Nike Method 006 prototype putter, likely the biggest change after years of using a Scotty Cameron model.

"I visited The Oven and I was seriously impressed with both the craftsmanship of the Nike club engineers and how much R&D and product innovation goes on there," McIlroy said. "I've been blown away by the attention to detail when it comes to product."

McIlroy moves to Nike after six years with Titleist, where he won two majors and topped the PGA TOUR and European Tour money lists last season.
