Tiger Woods Announces End Of 27-Year Nike Partnership



Tiger Woods on Monday announced the end of his partnership with Nike after nearly 30 years, becoming the latest pro golfer to leave the brand.
In a Monday post on X, formerly Twitter, Woods said that he was fortunate to partner with one of the most iconic brands in the world more than 27 years ago.
The days since have been filled with so many amazing moments and memories, if I started naming them, I could go on forever. Phil Knight’s passion and vision brought this Nike and Nike Golf partnership together and I want to personally thank him, along with the Nike employees and incredible athletes I have had the pleasure of working with along the way, Woods wrote.
People will ask if there is another chapter. Yes, there will certainly be another chapter, he wrote.
The statement was posted alongside a photo of Woods and his mother with Nike founder Phil Knight.
Nike announced in 2016 it would stop producing golf equipment, but continued its partnerships with golfers. Speculation of a split heated up in the last month, however.
During an interview ahead of the PNC Championship last month, Woods, 48, was asked for clarity about his relationship with the sportswear brand. He only said that I’m still wearing their product.
Last week, PGA Championship winner Jason Day announced he was leaving Nike, and entering a partnership with Malbon Golf.
Woods will next hit the links for next month’s Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles.
