Rory McIlroy has signed an extension to his lucrative deal with TaylorMade.

Since 2017 the four-time major winner has been in the brand’s stable – and now the partnership, said to be worth $10 million a year to the Northern Irishman, is set to continue.

McIlroy has penned what TaylorMade describe as a “multi-year” extension, which will see him continue to play a full bag of the brand’s clubs and ball.

“Over the last several years I have had the chance to work with the best equipment company in golf,” he said.

“Today I am excited to announce TaylorMade clubs and ball will be staying in my bag for many years to come.

“A combination of the dedicated people and unmatched performance is what drove me to remain a part of Team TaylorMade.”

Since signing with the brand following Nike’s decision to withdraw from the golf equipment scene, McIlroy has won seven times including the 2019 PLAYERS Championship and the FedEx Cup in the same year.

“Rory is undeniably one of the most captivating players in our game and truly one of the great human beings in the sports world,” said TaylorMade chief executive and president David Abeles.
