It's official: World No. 1 Day to wear Nike apparel


World No. 1 Jason Day will return next week at Kapalua with a new look.

Day will be decked out in Nike apparel when he makes his first start since the Tour Championship. The deal was first reported by ESPN in September, but Nike and Day did not confirm the agreement until Jan. 1.

Nike announced in August that it was getting out of the equipment business, but it will continue making golf apparel.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that Day will make upward of $10 million a year. Day will wear a Nike hat, clothes and shoes.
