McIlroy Does Not Believe His Switch To Nike Equipment Will Negatively Impact His Game
Golfer RORY MCILROY has "no fears" that ditching the Titleist equipment that has taken him to world No. 1 will result in any diminishing of his golfing powers, according to the IRISH TIMES. The U.S. PGA champion’s switch to Nike clubs next season, a deal that media reports estimate will be worth €195M ($250M) over 10 years, has been "the subject of much debate." McIlroy was asked by reporters in Dubai if he had any concerns the change in clubs would jeopardize his confidence or form and replied, "No, not at all. I think all the manufacturers make great equipment nowadays and it’s all very similar -- a lot of them get their clubs made at the same factories. I don’t think it will make any difference" (IRISH TIMES, 11/21).
