Famed for wearing his Oakley Flak Jacket sunglasses on his head while playing the course, It looks like the 2 time major winner and current darling of the golfing world is set for a legal battle over his new sponsorship deal with sporting brand NIKE.
Nike has reportedly offered the 23 year old Northern Irishman £150m+ over 10 years to sponsor him from top to toe.
However, Luxottica, the group who owns Oakley Sunglasses, claims that they have an option to match any deal that he is offered before he accepts the lucrative offer.
The company stated Oakley’s contract with Rory has a right of first refusal that permits us to retain Rory as an Oakley endorser by matching any offer he receives covering our products
They also went on to add
These types of provisions are common in the industry. Oakley values Rory and will do all it can to retain him
