While Golf as a whole is on the slide in terms of popularity it's nice then that Nike have fronted up and backed Rory McIlroy for the next 10 years.

Word inside the ropes is his new deal, signed last week, is worth $500 million with bonus options sprinkled throughout for Majors and other big wins.


"Whether it was Federer, Michael Jordan or the soccer players I followed, they all wore Nike," Rors said. "I always associated Nike with the best, with greatness."

And they also pay the most.

Nike also came up with a new ad. Reasonably entertaining but overall an opportunity missed when Tiger Woods was also willing to do a cameo.
