Jason Day appears to have added legitimacy to the claims there is tension between Nike and Tiger Woods.
Woods has been synonymous with the swoosh ever since he turned professional in 1997.
But over the Christmas period the 48-year-old was rumoured to be leaving the sporting giant.
That came after NLU reported Nike were considering shutting down their entire golf division, severing ties with the 15-time major champ.
Of course, Woods was asked about this as he played the 2023 PNC Championship alongside his teenage son Charlie.
The big cat would only muster the same, perhaps grumpy five-word response to the reporter brave enough to pop the question.
"I'm still wearing their product," he said firmly.
Along with Woods, the aforementioned Day has been one of Nike's premium ambassadors.
But ahead of The Sentry at Kapalua, the Aussie has now confirmed he has cut ties with Nike after seven long years.
Day has now found his new home at Malbon Golf.

How big are those sleeves, by the way?!
Day will become the first PGA Tour player who will be sponsored by the brand.
According to Golfweek, Day was being paid $10m per year by Nike. He is said to have penned a $100m contract with the brand in 2016.
