Nike Golf recruits six more players

First it was World No.1 Jason Day. Now Nike Golf has recruited a further six players to its ranks, including eight-time European Tour winner Alex Noren, and European Ryder Cup star Thomas Pieters.

Joining them is Frenchman Alexander Levy, a three-time winner on the European Tour, Sweden’s Kristoffer Broberg, who won his maiden Tour title at the 2015 BMW Masters, German Alexander Knappe, who qualified for the main European Tour in 2017 via the European Challenge Tour, and Spaniard Pep Angles. The pair finished third and 14th respectively in the final Road to Oman standings.

All six golfers will wear Nike apparel and footwear, and have been working with Nike product and sports marketing teams in the off-season to ascertain which innovations best suit their game.

“I had five great months on tour in 2016, but I want to use the best possible product and keep improving. I was excited to learn about the new innovations that Nike were working on in both apparel and footwear,” said Stockholm-born Noren.

Belgian Pieters, already well known in Europe, has made some considerable impressions on the wider golfing world during last year’s Ryder Cup, winning four of his five matches – the first European rookie ever to do so. Like Levy, he is a three-time European Tour winner; the last of his victories coming at the 2016 Made in Denmark tournament at Himmerland Golf and Spa resort.

Noren, Pieters, Levy, Broberg and Knappe will all be competing in this week’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
