End is nigh for Nike golf equipment
Nike is phasing out its golf equipment business to focus on shoes and apparel.
The company has announced it is accelerating its footwear and apparel business and will transition out of Nike golf equipment range – including clubs, balls and bags.
“We’re committed to being the undisputed leader in golf footwear and apparel,” says Trevor Edwards, president, Nike Brand. “We will achieve this by investing in performance innovation for athletes and delivering sustainable profitable growth for Nike Golf.”
The global giant said it will continue to partner with more of the world’s best golfers as part of its changed golfing segment strategy.
“Athletes like Tiger, Rory and Michelle drive tremendous energy for the game and inspire consumers worldwide,” says Daric Ashford, president of Nike Golf.
“Over the past year the MM Fly Blade Polo, the Flyknit Chukka and Air Zoom 90 have all connected strongly with golfers. We’ll continue to ignite excitement with our athletes and deliver the best of Nike for the game.”
