    Stewart Cink leaves Nike - joins TaylorMade

    Saw this pic posted by Stewart this morning on Twitter. Nike contract expired at midnight, perhaps? This was actually a well kept secret.

    BB Mini 11*
    X2 Hot 3h
    XR 4h, 5h

    Cool.

    I know that a lot if companies seem to be rolling out staff for the next 10 or 11 days. Ready to see who else has changed.

    Also that's an interesting color scheme on that bag. I expected more yellow with all the marketing lately.

    I kinda do. To me they are similar to Nike. I kind of see Nike and TM as flashy with their equipment and style. Not saying that he is that- but his companies have that in common.
