Tiger Woods is one of the most recognisable golfers in the world, with his trademark Sunday Red outfit one of golf’s enduring sights.

For all but a few months of his professional career, the 15-time major winner has had his clothing supplied by Nike, having signed with the sportswear giant shortly after his 21st birthday in 1996.

The partnership proved a fruitful one almost immediately as Woods won the 1997 Masters in record-breaking fashion, cementing his status as the most marketable golfer in the world and putting Nike’s iconic “Swoosh” logo front and centre.

• Why does Tiger Woods wear red on Sunday?

• Who is Scottie Scheffler’s coach?

He signed a five-year deal worth $105million in 2000, which at the time was the largest endorsement deal ever given to the professional athlete.

Since then he has continued to be one of the brand’s biggest assets, and has been joined by the likes of Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood in signing up to wear Nike apparel.

For several years Woods also used Nike clubs before the company pulled out of the equipment market five years ago.

He has been described as the “ultimate endorser” of Nike Golf, and is rarely seen in public – or even commercials for other products – without the brand’s logos on his chest.

• Who is Tony Finau’s caddie?

• Who is the caddie for Will Zalatoris?

Such is Woods’ impact on the company, it has named a building after him at its headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

His son Charlie, an aspiring golfer himself, also wears Nike apparel including during appearances at the PNC Championship with his famous dad.
