Aaron Wise Nike Golf - New Athlete Signing?
Posted at November 10, 2016
We profile Aaron Wise, NCAA amateur champion for 2016 and already making his mark on the PGA Tour wearing Nike Golf clothing.
Aaron Wise - Nike Golf Athlete?
The NCAA golf championship has spawned a few notable winners in its past: Bryson DeChambeau, Thomas Pieters, Kevin Chappell and Jamie Lovemark in the last ten years add to those of Woods, Mickelson and Nicklaus to name just a few. This year, we can add the name "Aaron Wise" to that prestigious list of NCAA Champions.
Originally hailing from South Africa before moving to the USA at the age of three, Aaron Wise has undeniable talent and even gave up his last two seasons at the University of Oregon, having won both the individual and team NCAA championship titles this year. Wise earned a spot at the U.S. Open shortly after, whilst his year improved even further after he notched his first victory on the MacKenzie Tour in Canada this July.

He's already making his mark on the PGA tour, too. Earlier this month, Wise played the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open thanks to a sponsor's invite and finished an impressive T10. Consequently, this secured another PGA Tour start for the following event in Mexico - the OHL Classic. That event starts today and once again, Aaron Wise is in the headlines.
A hole in one at the fourth hole? Impressive. To follow that with another eagle proves that Aaron Wise is a real force to be reckoned with. It all contributed to a blotch-free opening round 65 in Mayakoba, good enough to tie for fifth on day one and raise his profile once more.
Aaron Wise - Golf Clothing
We already know Aaron Wise will be using Callaway equipment, but his appearances on the PGA Tour would also suggest he will be wearing Nike golf clothing and shoes for the foreseeable future. Competing for the Oregon Ducks in the NCAA, that's certainly no surprise.
We patiently await an official announcement from the brand - but with their departure from the golf equipment industry freeing up funds for their apparel-only contracts, we think the deal is pretty much set in stone.
Aaron Wise is only twenty years of age. The NCAA title doesn't come easy and with such an explosive start to his PGA Tour career, we can't wait to see what more Aaron Wise has to offer in the near future - all whilst (hopefully) wearing the very latest Nike Golf clothing and footwear.
