With all the talk about Rory switching from Titleist to Nike, I wonder if he will switch putters? I personally don't think that it would be a good idea, but money can do some strange things to people. Nike would definitely give him a reasonable amount more if he gamed the Method. What do you guys think?

I'm sure Nike wants 100% 14 clubs in the bag. But Nike has to give him some time with the putter if they want their investment to pay dividends in the end.

Kyle Stanley is sticking with his Scotty and if Stanley gets to keep the Scotty and I'm sure Rory will get to keep his. Tiger kept his for how many years???

You dont give a guy 200+ million and let him use a competitors putter...  I have a feeling he will be playing a Method from the get go...   will be interesting to see none-the-less what ever happens!

Kyle Stanley didn't get near the money rory is getting, they will give him ample time to make the change but in the end they are wanting a bag 100% Nike.

I'm guessing he'll make the putter change gradually.
When Tiger switched to the Method, it kind of broke the invincibility of Cameron.  Cameron's success is obviously tied to the rise and dominance of Tiger.  
Tiger switching putters was a big deal, for Nike.  It gave the Method credibility.  
Putters are the most personal equipment.  It takes time to adjust to a different putter whatever brand it is.

They will want him to bag 14 Nike clubs but I don't think they expect it.  I am sure he will have dozens of putters made to his specs until he finds one that feels like his current gamer, much the same as they did with Tiger.

I doubt Rory will switch right away, if ever.  Tiger got paid a huge contract too back in the day, and he stuck with the Scotty for a long time.  Only after some off the course issues (when other sponsors were dropping him), did he switch to the Nike putter.  

Then again, maybe that was just a coincidence, but I'm guessing it wasn't.

He isn't a top rated putter.  He's a good putter, but not like Old Tiger, Stricker, Faxon, Crenshaw, Roberts. I can't see switching putters being devastating to his WGRanking.

Partially, but it's the most popular putter on tour for other reasons as well (quality).  Jonathan Byrd and Brad Faxon don't use Cameron putters because of Tiger.  Guys on GolfWRX may, but not tour players.

I don't know anyone playing Nike irons.

I'm sure Nike would rather tiger use a Cameron and hoist a few majors than use the method and hoist none... Not saying its the putter but you get my point.  I'm sure they feel the same way about mcilroy... Winning majors with Nike irons, woods and apparel but a Scotty flat stick is better than all Nike and no majors.

Personally,if I was Rory,and Nike just gave me a 200 mil deal,and said here,play this. I would not object one bit. I would ask where I needed to go get fit for my new putter.

Side note to what breaker999 said. I have noticed after Tiger switched from Scotty, it seems more and more are using the putters of the brands they are signed with now. I can tell some of the Scotty luster is wearing off.

It may depend on how easy it is for him to switch.  The guy practices a ton and more than any one here so he will have plenty of practice with a new putter and depending on how comfortable he can get, it may not be a hard switch for him.  Some people are more picky than others as well.  He doesn't strike me as a terribly picky guy but who knows.  We will see in a week or 2.

Those Cameron putters sucked on tour last year. They only lead the tour win 17 wins (42.5% of the 40 events) compared to Nike's 4 wins (10% of the events)

Where in his post did he say that Cameron putters sucked or even that any brand had surpassed them? The rest of your post actually had useful information...Too bad it was overshadowed by the snarkyness in the first line.

I interpreted the statement "broke the invincibility of Cameron" as meaning they have lost their position on number 1 on tour. That they have lost their position of the number 1 selling OTR milled putter. But that could be just me and my opinion. And isn't the internet great in that we all get to express our opinions :happy:

Your definition of invincible is different than mine...or Webster's for that matter. And I like that your dogma never wavers and that you're always willing to take up a battle...even if there isn't one to begin with.

don't you think that OEM's spend large amounts of money to call themselves #1 in some segemnt of the market?

Don't you think some other OEM would like to conquer Cameron's hold on the most wins on tour?

I wouldn't be surprised if he switched. And I also wouldn't be surprised if the switch takes very little adjustment time.

Because Tiger used one putter and one putter only for so long and with such success, I think we tend to give a bit too much credit to the putter and less to the man using it. In Tiger's case and all pro's cases. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure his Cameron and all tour Camerons are made with the highest quality. But pros switch putters allllll the time. Heck, even Rory has used a few Camerons the last couple years. I'm guessing he doesn't have the attachment to his GSS we're assuming. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he switch to a Super Rat for a while AFTER his big US Open win?

My opinion is, if Rory's contract he inked didn't say "you must play a Nike putter by X date", he should game whatever allows him to win.  After a few wins, he can renegotiate and play a Nike putter too.  At the end of the day, money talks and his agent is by his side doing most of the talking.

It depends on the contract....  I don't think many guys jump right into a 14 club deal, especially the top players in the world.  I still maintain that Nike cares more about moving their apparel than their clubs.  More profit, and Rory is a good guy to get it moving overseas.

I'm guessing he'll make the putter change gradually.
When Tiger switched to the Method, it kind of broke the invincibility of Cameron.  Cameron's success is obviously tied to the rise and dominance of Tiger.  
Tiger switching putters was a big deal, for Nike.  It gave the Method credibility.  
Putters are the most personal equipment.  It takes time to adjust to a different putter whatever brand it is.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but since Tiger has been using the Method putter(s) his putting is FAR from his best.
Just sayin'...

His putting was off with his scotty which was one of the reasons he was more open to switch.  If you're comfortable with a putter it doesn't matter what the brand is.
