As if signing an endorsement deal in December to play Bridgestone golf balls was never enough, 14-time major winner Tiger Woods signed again a multi-year deal to use TaylorMade equipment on Wednesday.
His new deal came after Nike, whose equipment Woods had used since joining the US PGA Tour in 1996, decided to drop its golf equipment program last year, leaving Woods without any choice but to seek for new clubs to launch his comeback.
"After several months of testing and all brands to choose from, the choice is clearly @TaylorMadeGolf. Proud to join the family!" Woods tweeted.
Woods will play the company's metal woods, irons and wedges but the deal does not cover the putter. Woods has a favored Scotty Cameron putter that he used in 13 of his 14 major victories.
This deal (endorsement), means that the 41-year-old Golf player will work with TaylorMade's club engineers and have a role in designing and developing a new iron model, according to the company.
"Throughout my career, I've always been meticulous about my equipment," Woods said.
Over the past few months, I've had clubs from every brand sent to me to test. When it came to making a final decision, the choice was easy — it all came down to performance, which is why I chose TaylorMade," Woods added.
