Nike will continue to produce apparel and sneakers but no longer make golf clubs.
Another reason to why Nike decided to discontinue its golf equipment is that Tiger Woods their major sponsor has not had any action all season long. Tiger’s slump has not been good for Nike at all.
A similar issue with Rory Mcilroy he has not had a PGA tour win all season long.
Its a sad day for both the players and the fans. It was back in 1984 when Nike was first introduced to golf.
Back in 1996 at 21 years old Tiger Woods signed a $40 Million dollar deal for 5 years.
Remember this famous commercial? We all drew inspiration from this.
Also remember this infamous club the Sasquatch. So many people back in 2007 had this club.
Sad to see Nike go. But thankfully their apparel and comfortable shoes will still be made.
With only 2% of Nike profit coming from golf it was the correct decision to discontinue producing clubs.
If you want to purchase your last Nike clubs do it now before they get sold out everywhere.
They will be definitely be collectibles and be remembered for many years to come.
