    regarding golf declining, part of it is the decline of a healthy middle class in America.



    Trump will bring golf back.

    USGA drew the line on equipment advances and people stopped buying new stuff every two years. Plus the fall of Tiger hurt the popularity of the sport in general.

    I'm surprised at how many people on my golf forum are devastated at this because they are Nike gear top to bottom. I have one Nike stick in my bag, it's a prototype 5 wood and it's pretty badass. But I was hesitant to ever play their irons. Some say their blades are great. The drivers they're giving to Rory must be pretty damn good.

    Nike realized it was a mistake to sign Bobby Knight as a pitchman

    Taylor Made may get sold as well. Where Tiger & Rory go for sticks will be interesting. Titleist or Callaway I guess. They'll stay Nike apparel.

    I know injuries had a little to do with it, but didn't Tiger's downfall start when he switched to Nike clubs?
