There has been a lot of talk about the performances of former world number one Rory McIlroy after he switched from Titleist equipments to those supplied by Nike Golf, a move that has drawn the ire of many golfers considering the multi million pound deal that the young Northern Irishman signed and now, Paul Casey has come to the aid of the world number two stating that he is not using equipments that are inferior and has backed him to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.
The 24 year old won five titles using the old equipments in 2012, including his second major title and has remained at Carton House over the weekend to get some extra practice as he looks to find the perfect balance in his shots. He also told the assembled reporters that he would meet with officials of Nike Golf over the weekend as well in order to find a solution to his driving and putting problems.
And Paul Casey, who also uses equipments supplied by Nike Golf, defended the equipment supplied by the company as he sided with the former world number one in the wake of his poor form as well as his own return to form after he claimed his first title on the European Tour since 2011 with a superb closing at 67.
He mentioned that he has full confidence in Rory and stated that he agrees with what is being written about him being a streaky player but also admitted that it is only a matter of time before he returned to winning ways. Paul Casey went on to state that he talks with Rory on the course but he doesn’t know what is going on inside his head and hopes the R&D of Nike will help him get the results soon.
