Nike Golf might no longer be the equipment business, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of the game completely as ESPN’s Darren Rovell is reporting that Jason Day has signed with the brand for close to $10 million a year to wear their shoes and apparel.

While no official word has come out from either Day or Nike Golf, this is the final year of Day’s contract with adidas Golf (shoes and apparel) and TaylorMade (equipment), which is currently for sale by adidas. Day has already resigned with TaylorMade, so he will continue to use their clubs and balls regardless of where it ends up going in the sale.

Acquiring Day, the current #1 ranked player in the world, would be a huge “get” for Nike Golf in spite of their departure from the equipment game, joining former world #1 Rory McIlroy and some guy named Tiger Woods. As an adidas athlete, he wore the adidas TOUR360 Boost this season and won the PGA Championship last year in the adiPower Boost shoes. And if you’re wondering, yes, he has Yeezys, so he’ll be fine on the way out…
