Patrick Reed signs with Nike Golf, is no longer on staff with Callaway

Published

on

The shushing, top-5 claiming, ultra-passionate golfing Patrick Reed has inked an apparel and footwear deal with Nike Golf, according to reports. And he announced his new deal with a Nike Golf/American flag photoshop that suits the superstar Ryder Cupper and alpha-American perfectly.

Also, as GolfWRX Members speculated, Reed is “no longer officially with Callaway,” according to a Callaway representative.

As forum user cvhookem63 pointed out, the last time we saw Reed without a bag full of Callaway clubs was in 2013 when he played mostly Swoosh clubs. Since Nike no longer makes golf equipment, it will be interesting to see what clubs end up in his bag for 2018.

    Next contract will be PXG. Hopefully he doesnt get the same clothes as JDay.

    Give the guy a break… so he’s a little hefty, where does it state you have to be chiseled to be considered an athlete? It’s all about what he does in the course.

    My question is what sticks will he have in the bag. I could see him going PXG considering he was using that 3 iron for the longest time. Or maybe a mixed set like Keopka.

      Little hefty, but tears up the golf course like a beast. Who cares what size he wears, the guy is a great golfer. And his Ryder Cup performance was legendary. Love seeing him play.

        You guys are so right! He is tearing up that course….one bogie at a time. Sad performances. Burning bridges and poor performances are not the best route to be on when the curtain is closing…

    Interesting that he went back to Nike, since he was with them before.

    But also an odd choice for Nike to go back to him, since they like to call their players “athletes.” I know that professional golfers are athletic, but some just have a different body type to portray what an athlete should look like. There are a few Nike staffers that seem to be interesting picks.

    I mean, when you put up Patrick Reed next to Brooks Koepka, a big difference there.

    At least with this apparel deal, he will have more than four outfits. I swear, he wore the same slacks all the time on multiple days.

      He may have left Nike due to the clubs since they were an ‘all or nothing’ sponsor of golfer, save for the occasional putter. Now that Nike is out of clubs, he’s free to play what he wants. I’m sure all Nike apparel deals are sweet enough that players can bag whatever they want.

    Hopefully that will mean we will never see him ever again in those terribly unfortunate trousers that had those gawd-awful rear pockets with the cutesy plaid flappy thingies. Those things were just so wrong. . .
