Any of the top brands make good clubs, yes these premium ones are north of £600 for a set of iron - but for scratch and better player they perform better. Titliest Ping, TM or Mizuno or Nike they are all good so Rory will be fine and why not cash in whilst he's young.
How different do you really think top level golfs clubs really are? The Nike Vr Pro blades me has are hardly any different do his previous Titleist Blades. The new putter, exactly the same process as the carbon milled scotty cameron heal and toe weighted design. Cant comment on the woods as i havent tried them but ultimately is the shafts that make the feel. And they arent made by nike or titleist
i'm sure rory gave full consideration to the impact the move would have on his game, lol, then looked at how much Nike were offering him, and thought, stuff it, i play golf for money and riches dont i, and they dont come much richer than Nike. and i've got a false leg, do Nike offer me a deal, nope
@16 you obviously didnt look very hard there are plenty of disabled golf societies and events all over the country so yes I am proud of my sport, the captain of my club has a false leg and is allowed to take his buggy on the course, so do us all a favour get the chip off your shoulder
Regardless of the money, I'm concerned that Rory is now 'owned' by Nike. No doubt he didn't sign up to anything he wasn't happy with but they will still have a significant say in what he can/cannot do. Before, he was his own man and had 4/5 different smaller sponsors. Now, it's big boys' rules..... I hope he remains the same golfer/person.
@17Professional sport is not a hobby - making Big Ben out of matchsticks is a hobby. And I don' blame bankers for taking their moneys - change legislation if needs be but can't blame them for what they do under current regulation.Bankers were made scapegoats by politicians who dropped the ball in the previous decade or three with relaxing controls. But the public have gullibly fallen for it.
10.kc_chiefs When opportunity arises I do condemn the music and film industry too. I strongly believe the payments to all such are largely responsible for the business, bankers and the like, looking on and thinking they should take vast sums out of what they do. They at least are doing real jobs not hobbies. We all pay for all of them, through the products and even licence fee.
Is there any thought or consideration given to disabled golfers on here? I would have thought after the paraplegic olympics,golf would have been keen to help the disabled,but theres no help anywhere,not even 1 club that gives disabled any consideration,i hope your proud of your sport !!!!!!!
good luck to you Rory
If you were offered a massive pay rise for doing the same job would you turn it down on moral grounds as you thought it was a ridiculous amount of money ?......I know i wouldnt...I say good luck to Rory and these 'benefits' are all part of being the best in the game. We should celebrate that this Rory Mcilroy a British golfer.
Lying greedy weasel. Thats quite an insult. I don't quite see why anyone should say that as he simply switched to a different brand and is getting well paid for doing so. Really, who wouldn't. Top players often change clubs to get a better deal, the same as footballers transfer to other clubs. As with footballers it is usually the management team behind the player who are making the deals.
The only problem will be if Rory has a bad start. It is natural to blame anything that is changed. That can rock the confidence, which can cause serious issues. Good luck with the new clubs, Rory, I hope they are in sparkling form at the next Ryder Cup
