Woods vs. McIllroy in new Nike commercial

Nike made it official today in Abu Dhabi that Rory McIlroy has joined Team Swoosh, a move that became apparent late last year and was denied by no one.

The rumored numbers -- $250 million over 10 years -- explain McIlroy's decision to join Tiger Woods on the Nike staff. It's a huge cost to Nike but the company landed the game's new superstar and locked him up long-term.

McIlroy leaves Titleist, which traditionally hasn't paid huge dollars to keep the game's top stars.

How good is the Nike equipment McIlroy will be using?

Good enough for him to feel comfortable about the change. If he feels good, that's what matters.

Here's a link to the new Rory/Tiger commercial released by Nike, a fun play on their relationship. That's a pretty strong twosome.
