    Good thing he didn’t sign with Pepsi.
    If I remember correctly, Pepsi once had a deal with a golfer of questionable character.

    Lanny…Firstly I apologise for not commenting on your subject de jour…I’d like you to get over your obsession on being Tiger Woods free…Drop that silly banner and get back to your original one.
    You know…the one where it could be you walking serenely down the wood lined path..

    The elephant in the room for me is the fact that Jordan gets so much more love than Rory. Technically, Rory has done more and yet gotten a fraction of the “love” he should have.

    Look at Jordan. UA. Titleist. AT&T. And now Coke. A huge growing coming. One of the top 3 golf equipment companies. Massive tech company. And, the biggest beverage/”whatever” company in the world.

    Rory has his Nike contract but let’s face it, it’s a huge company because of everything besides their golf division.

    Jordan is well on his way…..and yet……he’s just getting started.
