Tiger Woods Shows Up to Augusta in FootJoy Shoes, Nike Responds

Tiger Woods was back on the course at Augusta National on Monday while he decides whether to enter his first official tournament since nearly losing his right leg in a car crash in February 2021.

After practicing Sunday, the five-time green jacket winner called teeing up for Thursday’s first round of the Masters a “game-time decision.”

Woods created a bit of a stir with his choice of shoes while on the practice range on Sunday.

Affiliated with Nike since turning pro in 1996, Woods was spotted wearing Footjoy brand shoes.

Nike issued a statement saying, “Like golf fans around the world, we are delighted to see Tiger back on the course … As he continues his return, we will work with him to meet his new needs.”

Woods’ miraculous run to the 2019 Masters title — the last of his 15 major victories — was reportedly worth $22.5 million to Nike.

Woods has up until his tee time on Thursday to announce his decision.

The 46-year-old, who has slipped to No. 973 in the world rankings, last played in a tournament when he finished tied for 38th at the Masters in November 2020.
