Nellie Korda (USA), the world No. 2 in women’s golf, will change her main sponsor, uniforms, and even clubs for the new season.
Coda recently signed with Nike.
Although there was no official announcement, Coda indirectly announced the fact of the contract with Nike by posting a picture of swinging in a Nike suit on social media on the 16th (Korean time) and saying, “I am excited for a new start.”
Since Nike signed a 안전놀이터 contract on the condition that only the Nike logo be worn on everything from hats to shoes, Coda ended its relationship with Hanwha Q Cells, which had been sponsored as the main sponsor for six years.
US media reported that Nike had agreed to pay Koda the highest ever salary for a female athlete. It is said to be worth more than $500 million per year.
She also parted ways with the Jay Lindberg golf apparel she wore all along.
Koda’s transformation will not stop at her main sponsor and competition suit.
Titleist, the club company that Corda has been using, has removed references to her Corda from her website.
It means that her new club contract is imminent.
Golf.com reports that Koda will be using TaylorMade clubs starting this season.
If Koda completes the contract with Nike and TaylorMade, she will become a player wearing Nike clothes and using the TaylorMade club, just like Tiger Woods (USA) and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland).
Meanwhile, Brooke Henderson (Canada), who is ranked 7th in the world, plans to use the TaylorMade club from this season instead of Ping, which she has been acquainted with for a long time.
