could possibly be," Acushnet chief executive Wally Uihlein said in a statement. "He has been a great ambassador for the Titleist and FootJoy brands, and in turn, we are proud of how our equipment has contributed to his success. We wish Rory all the best, both personally and professionally, going forward."
"I will always appreciate the contribution Titleist has made in helping me become the player I am today," McIlroy said.
Phil Mickelson won his first Masters with Titleist in 2004, and the Fairhaven, Massachusetts, company let him out of his contract later that summer to sign a lucrative deal with Callaway.
Not since Woods has a player had this much potential at such a young age. PGA Tour win. Open scoring records last summer at Congressional to win by eight shots, and when he won his second major at Kiawah Island in August, he Lv Boots 2017 became the youngest player since Seve Ballesteros in 1980 with two majors. Only five players have won majors by at least eight shots since 1976 three by Woods, two by McIlroy.
It prides itself on having the most tour players use its golf ball, though it also has some 80 players around the world under contract to use its golf balls and clubs. This year might have been particularly costly, however, especially with incentive clauses in the contracts. Open champion Webb Simpson, Jason Dufner, Steve Stricker and Nick Watney.
This is the second time in the last 10 years that Acushnet, which has a history of fiscal prudence, has not stood in the way of a No. 1 player going after big money. Woods, who had an equipment deal with Titleist when he turned pro, left for the Nike golf ball in 2000 and then the Nike golf clubs in 2002.
McIlroy and Acushnet Co., which has supplied the 23 year old star from Northern Ireland with Titleist and FootJoy gear since he turned pro five years ago, said on Tuesday they will not extend their relationship after this year.
Still to be determined is how any deal with Nike would affect the rest of McIlroy's deals. He has endorsements with Jumeirah Estates, Oakley, Audemares Piguet and Santander bank. Nike typically prefers a clean look for its athletes, with rare exception. Woods and Anthony Kim had separate endorsements for their golf bags.

"We are declining comment on rumors and speculation," Nike spokeswoman Beth Gast said.

The announcement allows McIlroy to pursue a lucrative endorsement contract, with strong indications that he will sign with Nike in a deal that one industry observer estimated at $20 million a year.

two major championships. He won the PGA Tour money title, and is closing in on winning the European Tour money title.
They have become friends in recent months. They were in the same group five times during the FedEx Cup playoffs, and the conversation came easily. That led to the 18 hole exhibition on Monday, the first time Woods has agreed to a head to head match since the old "Battle at Bighorn" days against Sergio Garcia.
McIlroy won by one. Walking off the fourth hole, McIlroy even took one of Woods' Nike clubs and took a few practice swings.
Even as McIlroy was being courted by other companies, Titleist did not put up a big fight. The company has a history of putting the brand before the player, as it did with Woods, Mickelson, David Duval after he reached No. 1 in the world and Garcia.
Now, it appears likely both will be using the same equipment next year.
McIlroy is not playing the HSBC Champions this week in China. He will close out his European Tour season starting the following week with the Singapore Open, the Hong Kong Open and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. He would have two months until his next tournament in Abu Dhabi, giving him time to test new equipment.
