Ireland's own Mr McIlroy has just signed a new endorsement deal with sportswear company Nike. As the company tries to get passed and forget that it even had ties to the recent PR nightmare Lance Armstrong, Rory has been laughing all the way to the bank. Official figures have not been released on the deal but estimates have valued it at around $100 million, ya know, just enough to get by!
The first advertisement staring Rory was posted today by Nike. It also features the worlds previous number one and other face of Nike, Tiger Woods, as the two go back in forth in a little exchange for bragging rights.
