World No. 1 Jason Day will return to action on the PGA Tour next week at the SBS Tournament of Champions event in Kapalua with a new look.
Day will be decked out in Nike apparel when he makes his first start since the Tour Championship. The deal was first reported by ESPN in September, but Nike and Day did not confirm the agreement until January 1. Day also resigned an equipment deal with TaylorMade.
Nike announced in August that it was getting out of the equipment business, but it will continue making golf apparel.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that Day will make upward of $10 million a year. Day will wear a Nike hat, clothes and shoes.
