Ever since Nike announced they were discontinuing their production of golf equipment, attentions have been focused on the next moves of Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.
The man from Hollywood chose a mix of Callaway and Titleist for the upcoming season while continuing his clothing partnership with Nike.
Woods, meanwhile, teased the golf world last night with this mysterious tweet.
Big decision made. Find out tomorrow. -TW pic.twitter.com/7Ll6LUngIc

This afternoon, Big Cat once again took to social media to announce the switch to Taylormade.

The former world number one will debut the new set tomorrow alongside, somewhat suspiciously, fellow Taylormade users Jason Day and Dustin Johnson. The Genesis Classic at Riviera is just his second tournament back from his lengthy absence from the game as he struggled to recover from a back injury that has plagued him for years.
It’s a seismic change for the sport with Woods switching from a brand that he became synonymous with, such is the iconic nature of both Tiger and the unforgettable logo.
These moments alone are worth every penny the manufacturer has given the 41-year-old.
