Moore playing 2015 without equipment sponsor


While many players use January to announce new equipment deals or renewals of existing agreements, Ryan Moore has decided to go it alone this year on the PGA Tour.

A winner earlier this season at the CIMB Classic, Moore will play without an equipment endorsement in 2015, according to a report.

Moore has had an agreement with TaylorMade since 2013, and he won in Malaysia in back-to-back years using their equipment. His deal expired at the end of December, and Moore opted not to renew.

"(TaylorMade) made a great offer, but it wasn't the right time or fit for me to sign a deal," he said. "My focus is on playing the best golf I can."

According to the report, Moore will continue to use a TaylorMade driver and 3-wood, while using a hybrid from Adams Golf, with whom Moore was under contract from 2010-13. His irons and wedges, though, will be provided by a newcomer to the equipment world: Parsons Xtreme Golf. The company's founder, Bob Parsons, is the founder of GoDaddy, outspoken owner at Scottsdale National Golf Club and an avid golfer. Parsons sent a tweet earlier this week to announce the company's creation.
