Exploring Tiger Woods' options after just ending it with Nike

When Tiger Woods appeared frustrated with a question about his future with Nike last December his departure from the sporting giant felt inevitable. 

It was a question of when, not if. 

Now we have our answer and no longer will the iconic golfer be sporting the similarly iconic swoosh. 

Woods, now 48 years old, has promised 'another chapter'. 

The big question is where? 

GolfMagic has decided to take a look at some potential options for the big cat. 

Let's dive in. 

Greyson Clothiers

Greyson seems a natural fit considering the brand counts his good buddy Justin Thomas as one of their ambassadors, alongside fellow PGA Tour pro and 2022 U.S. Open champion Matthew Fitzpatrick

Tiger's teenage son Charlie was also wearing Greyson clothing during their last appearance at the PNC Championship. 

Charlie appeared to have signed a deal with Greyson, but a post endorsing that message was hastily deleted by the brand

FootJoy

When Woods returned to men's professional golf after his car crash at the 2022 Masters, the 15-time major champion was wearing FootJoy shoes. 

He said Nike were working towards developing a shoe that was more stable for his gammy, fused right ankle that is held together by screws at this point but nothing materialised. 

His own brand

Other high-profile figures from the world of elite sport have found success in this bracket. 

It wouldn't be unreasonable to think Tiger could go it alone. 

On Running

The running shoe and clothing brand has seen its popularity skyrocket in recent years. Tennis legend Roger Federer signed an equity deal with the company when he left Nike. 

TaylorMade

As pointed out by @TWLegion, the OEM has been recruiting a team for their new apparel division. 

Malbon Golf

The brand posted this when Tiger broke the news he was leaving Nike:

Former World No.1 Jason Day left Nike over the summer and now looks a bit different on the PGA Tour. 

His baggy pants divided opinion at The Sentry

Could we see Tiger rocking his early 2000s look once again?

Castore 

Another luxury brand that had the aforementioned Fitzpatrick on their books before he split.
