Tiger Woods hunting new equipment partner


Following the shock announcement that Nike Golf is to close down its hardware operation and concentrate solely on its apparel and footwear ranges, Tiger Woods is seeking a new equipment partner to continue his quest of getting back to his best.

Woods is not the only golfer to be hit by Nike’s decision, with the likes of Rory McIlroy, Michelle Wie and Brooks Koepka currently on its books.

Tiger’s agent, Mark Steinberg, has issued a statement which promises the player will be seeking a new equipment partner – but that as of this time no one brand has been earmarked.

“We’ll sort out the equipment thing in due course,” he told GOLF.com.

“Tiger and I have had multiple conversations about what we’d do and we have an organised plan in place,” Steinberg said. “The plan is continued rest and rehabilitation and we’ll sort out the equipment thing in due course. I’ll be in the process of doing that, effective immediately.”

However, it seems as though Woods will still be wearing Nike apparel and footwear after signing a deal with the company in 2013 – working as an apparel/footwear ambassador.

“He’s been a longtime icon of Nike golf and that’s not going to change,” added Steinberg. “He’ll remain a loyal and enthusiastic icon of Nike.”
