McIlroy Denies Claims He Has Signed Sponsorship Deal With Nike
Golf world No. 1 Rory McIlroy "dismissed reports" he has already signed a multi-million dollar deal with Nike, according to the AFP. However, McIlroy did say there would be an announcement in the next few weeks. The Irishman said that he "had not committed to any sponsor for next season" and remained under Titleist until the end of the year, when his deal with the American equipment-maker will expire. McIlroy said, "I’m a Titleist player until the end of the year, I’ve made no commitment to any company for next year" (AFP, 11/8).
