"I've loved this company since I was a kid," said McIlroy. "I'm really happy to continue this journey with Nike."

Nike announced in August of last year it was exiting the equipment business to focus on apparel and shoes. McIlroy has been testing other clubs since the announcement but still wears Nike gear.
