Several players who endorse Nike Golf expressed their disappointment in the company abandoning future production of equipment.
Michelle Wie released a statement on Thursday, saying, “I'm disappointed to hear the news. Nike equipment has been in the bag for some of my greatest moments in golf. More than anything, I appreciate the incredible people on the equipment side who have always helped me in every way possible.”
Here are some social media reaction from Nike Golf players:
Couldn’t play w/o clubs, balls & bag or men & woman dedicated to them. Grateful for their hard work & innovation from an amazing @Nike team— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) August 4, 2016
It's because of these people we put the wound ball into extinction. They helped me win grand slam.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) August 4, 2016
My thoughts are with my great friends at Nike who have lost jobs this day. That was my first thought when I heard the news. #nikefamily— Tony Finau Golf (@tonyfinaugolf) August 4, 2016
As a Nike athlete I am really sad to hear about this. I love a lot of their products and hope they will be back. https://t.co/0nOVTHLrQq— Jhonattan Vegas (@JhonattanVegas) August 3, 2016
