TaylorMade extends equipment deals with Day, DJ


ATLANTA – TaylorMade Golf announced on Wednesday that the company has re-signed Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, Nos. 1 and 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking, to multi-year endorsement deals.

Although terms of the deals were not disclosed, Day indicated on Wednesday at the Tour Championship that his new deal with TaylorMade would not include appeal.

“It's been amazing. To be able to renew and play the equipment and be successful with that equipment and know that equipment, I'm very excited about it,” Day said. “On the apparel, shoe side, I don't have anything to share right now, but I'm really excited about the future.”

In recent weeks Tour sources have indicated that Day plans to sign an apparel deal with Nike Golf, which announced last month that it was getting out of the golf equipment business.

Both Day and Johnson have played TaylorMade equipment since they turned professional and Wednesday’s announcement solidifies the company’s PGA Tour presence. Adidas, TaylorMade’s parent company, has been trying to find a buyer for its golf brands, which also includes Ashworth and Adams Golf.
