Since the news that Nike was leaving the golf equipment business, it’s been widely speculated what equipment some of the company’s top players would switch to. 

One of those players is Rory McIlroy, who has been sponsored by Nike since 2013.

As reported by NoLayingUp.com, McIlroy will change from his Nike equipment to Callaway's GBB Epic Sub Zero driver and Custom Apex MB irons, Titleist Vokey wedges, Titleist ProV1x balls and a prototype Odyssey putter.

He is expected to begin using this equipment lineup when he begins his 2017 schedule on January 12 at the BMW South African Open.

McIlroy had tried out a wide variety of golf balls and clubs this fall, notably testing the TaylorMade M2 driver at the HSBC Champions. According to the report, he does not plan to sign an endorsement deal with Callaway, Titleist or Odyssey in 2017.
