    Golfer Rory McIlroy could be in line for a new deal from Nike.

    Rory McIlroy "could be in line to sign a massive deal with Nike when his current contract with Titleist/Footjoy expires at the end of the year," according to the IRISH TIMES. Such a deal "could be worth up to $250M over 10 years, which is similar to Tiger Woods’ current deal with Nike." McIlroy's U.S. Open victory last year sparked speculations that he could rival Woods as "a money-making machine on and off the course." He could earn "$1B from the sport." The 23-year-old from County Down, Northern Ireland "has long been considered a sponsor's dream -- clean cut, articulate and immensely popular worldwide."
