Golf Report from Abu Dhabi

Posted: Jan. 31st, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

From Abu Dhabi number one ranked golfer Rory McIlroy was introduced as Nikes newest endorser. Although everything did not go very smoothly for McIlroy he missed a couple regular shots he would normally make. The question lies on whether it was the new Nike clubs or just faulty calculations.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- On Monday when Rory McIlroy was officially introduced as Nike's newest endorser, the golfer was specifically asked if he was contractually allowed to sub out any of his old equipment for the new stuff, if necessary.

McIlroy declined to discuss the terms of his deal, but the question was answered Friday when his old Titleist Scotty Cameron was in the bag, replacing Nike's Method putter.

That isn't likely to sit well with Nike officials, who reportedly are paying him more than $100 million over five years to wear its apparel, shoes, gloves and of course play its clubs
