Clothing and shoe deals are different from the club deals. Nike isn’t paying him to play their hybrid. I agree with the Mizuno comment, those JPX’s were what guys who weren’t paid to play clubs were choosing, they’re that good.

 

He was just getting a weekly baggage fee for playing the M3, it wasn’t a contract.

The Nike athletes had clothing, gear and bag deals. When Nike stopped making equipment their staffers were free to play whatever they wanted butif they signed a deal then they lost a percentage of their equipment contract. Brooks and Fleetwood are two staffers still on Nike club contracts

Large marketing budget, yes, but it's different.  It's not about big name deals.  It is about exposure.  Lots of "mid card" guys playing their gear and wearing their logo.  The Links at Petco Par

Mike Taylor, Nate Radcliff, Tom Stites and the others at The Oven really knew something about making golf clubs after all.  It's fun seeing those clubs still in the hands of guys that are winning. Wit

Plus, another thought in this space. With the rise of social media influencers like Shiels/Crossfield/TXG/Finch/MAMG/RG who club test, the rise of information through sites like this informing people

"You can play what you want and that's the beauty of it," Koepka said. "You don't have ties to one particular company, so if something isn't working, you can look elsewhere. You just play what works for you. With the success some guys have had this season, I think maybe you'll see more guys [go the free agent route] in the future."

 Yeah, I don't see that changing anytime soon.  With his dad I think on staff with them as a teaching pro and he has pretty much been the poster boy of success for the brand the past couple years. 

He was a hell of a driver of the golf ball using the 917, I can't wait to see what his numbers look like once he starts putting a TS in play. Bombcity!

Called it! Now I just have to dig through the forums and find where I said he’d switch to Taylormade as soon as they made the TW irons.

 

My wife will probably divorce me when these irons hit retail. Because I will own a set.
