John Daly using a Method putter
« on: July 29, 2011, 11:32:34 PM »
I've just noticed that JD has switched to a Method this year.  Just thought I'd highlight it, given that its not common for Nike equipment to be sported by pros who aren't Nike staffers.

Hmmm ... I wonder.  There's no mention of it on his website. http://www.johndaly.com/sponsors/

The body text of his site says Copyright 2010. I wonder if it hasn't been updated? There are portions of the web site that use inclusions or some code that update with his tweets and social media type stuff.

Is the Nike stuff new for this tournament? If so I'd guess he's sponsored and hasn't updated his site yet. If he's been gaming the Nike stuff for some time then it may not be a sponsorship. I'm only throwing out an idea.

He's getting paid by Nike. Can't remember the number but it was 100K plus for the season. If I'm not mistaken he was approached at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

IIRC, Nike is paying (players' pool) for putter use this year.  DLIII briefly used a Method 3 earlier this year.

JD has been bagging the Method for awhile now.  He's used the heel shafted and Anser styles.  So Nike has been paying him... He can keep the Loud Mouth attire b/c pros have separate deals for shoes and clothing.
