Tiger's dining room packed with new equipment

The race to lock down Nike's two biggest stars is ramping up.

Rory McIlroy laughed last week prior to The Barclays that his parents' house has become "inundated with golf equipment from different manufacturers,” and it sounds like Tiger Woods can relate.

Speaking on Golf Central on Sunday, Notah Begay detailed a recent trip through Woods' Jupiter, Fla., home. 

"I walked into his dining room and it was like going into a PGA [Tour] Superstore now that Nike's equipment line no longer exists," Begay said. "Every single manufacturer had sent equipment in there, and he's trying a variety of different things, trying to get a sense of where he's going to go from this point on."

Nike signed Woods to be the face of its golf brand in 1996 and added McIlroy to the fold in 2013. The company announced earlier this month that it plans to "transition out" of the equipment business and instead focus solely on footwear and apparel.
