You may remember that, when the Jason Day to Nike rumours first began, the brand had not long announced that they were retracting from the golf equipment business (clubs, balls etc.) - instead choosing to focus their efforts on apparel and footwear in 2017 and beyond. Despite fears of the brand leaving golf entirely, Nike Golf have stayed true to their promise and wasted no time in proving their commitment to the sport by signing one of the biggest names in the game today.
