Nike Golf, a division of American multinational corporation Nike, has signed world no.1 golfer Jason Day for a multi-year contract that covers footwear, apparel, headwear and gloves. He will be playing the tournament of Champions in Hawaii in Nike’s sportswear. Day is the current world no.1 in world golf ranking, having first achieved the ranking in 2015.

“Joining Nike is a dream come true…The brand is synonymous with the world’s best athletes. I’m honoured and can’t wait to be part of the team and working closely with Nike to take my game, and the sport of golf, to even higher levels,” said Jason Day.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jason to the Nike Golf team and our family of athletes,” said Daric Ashford, president of Nike Golf.

Day closed 2015 with four wins in his final seven starts, including his first major title with a record-breaking 20-under-par performance at the PGA Championship. That momentum carried over into 2016, with Day notching three wins including coveted titles at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the WGC-Dell Match Play and the Players Championship.

“He’s an incredible player who has demonstrated tremendous work ethic and amazing resilience over the course of his career. We are excited to help him chase more championships in the coming years,” said Ashford. (RR)
