The No. 1 golfer in the world, Rory McIIroy is now one of Nike's biggest stars as FOXSports.com reports McIIroy has signed a deal that could be worth as much as $250 million.
According to FOXSports.com, McIIroy has already filmed his first Nike commercial.
The personable young Northern Irishman appears in the ad alongside the man who helped recruit him to Nike, Tiger Woods.
The two banter while hitting the company’s new red driver and marvel at how far they’re hitting the ball.
The commercial also features two other long-hitting golfers, Nick Watney and Kyle Stanley, who have also made the switch to Nike as the company beefs up what has been a disappointing roster.
McIlroy, who had used Titleist clubs and balls in his five years as a professional, has signed a 10-year deal with the Oregon-based sports giant.
McIIroy, 23, will replace Tiger Woods as Nike's highest-paid golfer.
