McIlroy Keeps His Silence about Equipment Deal

Rory McIlroy's Contract
Heated rumors that world number one golfer Rory McIlroy is up for a new equipment deal keep on flooding the world of golf recently. Hearsay keeps coming out that the world renowned golfer is jumping out of Titleist in favor of Nike Golf.

To these, McIlroy says, “I have my management company deal with endorsements and everything like that. I’m just here to concentrate on golf this week, and I’ve got enough to think about trying to get that ball in the hole. So no further comment on that.” The golfer is playing at the BMW Masters in Shanghai, China. “These rumors have been going around for years, and it seems to always come up at this time of year,” he added.

Several reports also divulge that Nike is pursuing McIlroy for a 10-year exclusive deal which is also speculated to be worth around $250 million. TaylorMade was also reported to be after the two-time major champion. Though it is still not clear as to when the golfer’s contract with Titleist expires.

Both Titleist and Nike also keep their silence regarding the rumors. Titleist spokesperson says they do not talk about contracts with players while a Nike spokesperson said, “We are not going to comment on rumors or speculation.”
All these hearsays peaked up all the more when Nike’s Tiger Woods and McIlroy started having good friendship.
