Tiger & Nike: End of a 27-Year Fairway

On Monday, Tiger Woods and Nike announced their separation following over 27 years of partnership.

In a social media message, Woods expressed gratitude to Phil Knight, the co-founder of Nike, for his “passion and vision” in bringing the company and Woods’ Nike Golf collaboration together.

“Over 27 years ago, I was fortunate to start a partnership with one of the most iconic brands in the world,” wrote Woods. “The days since have been filled with so many amazing moments and memories, if I started naming them, I could go on forever.”

Nike also shared a picture on social media with the caption, “Tiger, that was one hell of a round.

“Tiger, you challenged your competition, stereotypes, conventions, the old school way of thinking,” the Nike post was captioned. “You challenged the entire institution of golf. You challenged us. And most of all, yourself. And for that challenge we’re grateful.”

Woods has won 15 major championships, each clinched while wearing his trademark red shirt on Sunday with the Nike Swoosh on the front. His 82 PGA tournament victories are tied with Sam Snead for most all-time.

“People will ask if there is another chapter,” Woods wrote in his post. “Yes, there will certainly be another chapter. See you in LA!
