A person’s firsts are engraved in their memory forever. It is alleged that Charlie Woods is now a part of Greyson’s pack. This is Junior Woods’s first deal, and surely it’ll remain close to his heart. This has also drawn the golf fraternity’s attention to his father’s first deal, which undoubtedly played an important role in his life.

Tiger Woods’s first brand collaboration was with Nike, his controversial partner of almost three decades. As the golf town gets bombarded with rumors of a possible split between the two giants, a deep dive into the two would reveal how it all started.

It all started when Tiger Woods turned pro at the age of 20 and took over the golf world with his calculated drives. Nike was not far behind in spotting this talent and shortly signed a deal that would later translate into one of golf’s most lucrative endorsement contracts with the emerging star. This is when the decades-long relationship between the two sports giants took off.

Their first encounter was when Phil Knight, the then-CEO of Nike, signed a $40 million five-year contract with the then-turned-pro at the age of 20. What followed were several contracts that were renewed and renegotiated over the decades. During all those years of collaboration between the two, Nike has reportedly paid $500 million to the five-time major champion.

However, things do not seem to be as jolly as this almost dreamy story between Nike and Tiger Woods, which has hit a bumpy road. Speculations of a possible split have engulfed the golf world in the last few months. The golf world then took the fifteen-time major winner’s son, Charlie Woods, not following in his father’s footsteps with a grain of salt.

As the 14-year-old sensation goes on to have signed his first deal more than half a decade before his father did, his ‘ditching Nike’ move has added fire to the fuel of a predicted split between his father and the billion-dollar market giant. But who exactly welcomed CW to the Greyson pack and became the Phil Knight of his success story?

Junior Woods was recently welcomed to the Greyson Clothiers family by Larry Fitzgerald, one of the most valuable people on board with the brand. The NFL sensation posted the news of Tiger Woods’s son joining the pack on his Instagram account, which then led to a series of speculations in the golf world.
