Magnificent McIlroy

August 12th, 2014

We congratulate Rory McIlroy on his superb win at The PGA Championship, and for demonstrating great tenacity and strength of character in coming back to the fore after things had started to go wrong at the beginning of his final round.

His switch to play Nike Golf was not without its initial difficulties and had many critics; but the arrangement has worked out to be a brilliant investment for both sides. Well done!
