Patrick Reed Leaves Nike, No New Staff Deal in Place
If you are watching the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Golf Channel you may have noticed that former Masters Champion Patrick Reed is no longer rocking the Nike swoosh.
That is because his apparel deal with Nike has come to an end, though details of why Reed did not re-sign are unknown.
However, the interesting thing is that Reed does not yet have a new staff deal, even though he is wearing a Titleist hat.
Golf Magazine managing equipment editor Jonathan Wall writes, “Gonna clear this up before rumors get started: Patrick Reed is wearing a Titleist hat this week, but he’s NOT on a staff deal. Does have a ball deal. Needed a lid for the week now that he’s no longer with Nike and chose Titleist.”
One would think that it would not take Reed long to sign on with a new company, however, at least for this week, that is not the case.
