Rory McIlroy, a Nike man through and through, quit mid-round today in the Honda Classic. Was he imitating his “good friend” and Nike stablemate Tiger Woods? I wonder if Rory got the blimp coverage as he left the course. I hope he has mastered “the limp.”
Nike (NKE) stock is level for the day. We’ll watch to see if Rory’s abandonment of play will have any impact on the price. Will heads roll in the Nike golf division?
