Back in August, Nike announced it would no longer be making golf clubs, balls, or bags. When the news broke, speculation began of where Tiger Woods would take his talents now that his equipment supplier was out of the business.

Five months later, Tiger has finally made his announcement. The 41-year-old will take his talents to TaylorMade.

Tiger had been using Nike equipment since he turned pro in 1996, so it’s not too surprising it took him this long to decide on a new equipment supplier. After all, most companies were probably also trying to outbid each other for his services.
