Stewart Cink leaves Nike

22 posts in this topic

Cink tweeted a New Years Message last night along with a picture of his new Taylor made R1 staff bag. Wonder why the switch? And I have no idea why this type of news interests me but it does. Lol

Interesting, with the rumor of Nike signing Rory and 3 other guys. I doubt Cink "quit" Nike.

Plus, Cink's done.

I haven't heard that rumor with Rory and Nike but I haven't been searching for it either.  As for Cink, his game has been hurting.

I thought that had moved beyond rumor to done deal no?

It's a done deal, the ink has long dried on Rory's new contract with Nike.  He will start off the 2013 season with Nike bag and clubs.

Cink robbed, well OK, defeated Tom Watson on the final hole and thus cemented his place in the pantheon of infamy.  Let Cink be gone.

Unless Oakley wins their lawsuit? :)

Cink?  No big loss.  He's not crucial to Nike's marketing strategy.  If you asked 100 casual golf fans, I doubt more than 10 of them even knew that Cink plays Nike gear.

According to Golf Channel Kyle Stanley and Nick Watney signed head to toe Nike deals. Also there will be a "major" announcement by Nike on Jan 14. This will no doubt be Rory to Nike Day.

I saw Stewart Cink drive out of Sugarloaf the other day while waiting to pick up my daughter.  If I hadn't, I would not have been sure he still existed.

Haven't been a fan of Cink since he gave himself a perfect lie in a "waste area" at Harbor Town. No loss to Nike.

Thanks for the link, I wasn't aware of the lawsuit.  It will be interesting to see how it goes.

If Oakley has a valid right of first refusal clause in their contract they could potentially block the deal for clothing and eyewear.  Seems the issue will be what percentage of the contract Nike assigns to clothing and eyewear and if Oakley will choose to match it.  Oakley used 33% in their calculations but I'd expect Nike would assign at least 50% to clothing given their overall market share in golf clothing and shoes is much higher compared to equipment

My guess is Nike will pay Oakley some amount of money and this will go quietly into the night. Nike has too much riding on this announcement to let a legal issue hang over it.

TM can have Baldy with my blessing but I'm seriously upset about Rob Rock.

Heck, I consider myself a pretty serious golfer, and even I didn't know Cink played Nike gear.

But then again, I don't follow who plays which equipment.  I only care about which equipment feels/plays for me.

Maybe Cink can get a Chik-fil-A sponsorship

I'm pretty sure you haven't reached superstar status (or maybe even star status) if Nike has to put your name on the poster

    • Iron Game Suffers when Driver Going Well
      For high handicappers myself included, this is typical.   I think it is b/c we don't have the same swing for irons and longer clubs.  If we get them both right in the same round, it is probably by pure luck or coincidence.  Grin and bear, and enjoy the journey.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      The topic title is the question who is the greatest golfer, the poll is the question who was the best. Two different things in my opinion. There's no doubt to me Tiger was a better golfer. How could he not? Spieth, McIlroy, Day but even guys like Wiesberger, Luiten and Donaldson play better golf than Jack. The game evolved so much over the years, and got so much more professional. If Jack would have been around in this era he would benefit from all that as well and be a better golfer than he was (and probably top those guys I just mentioned). But who was the greatest. How do you measure that (can you)? Tiger was dominant in a stronger field, winning more titles than you can count. Jack was the first of a kind, winning the biggest titles (majors) over an enourmous span and having the most of them. Isn't it mostly a matter of personal who you find 'greater'? For me Johan Cruyff is the greatest Dutch football player of time, but I have no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben were/are better because the game evolved. 
    • Making a Murderer Discussion Thread (Spoilers Likely)
      Obvisously... she took his case about a month ago. On one hand I hope Avery is guilty as hell, on the other hand it would be an amazing story and twist if turns out to be set up and she can prove that. I think that chance is less than 1%, but still..... Possibly, good point. Should be quite some blood though since they found 'drops', meaning it was dripping from (in this theory) his glove. Exactly my point. I don't think the blood was freely flowing, because than there should be a lot more blood in the car. They found blood consisting with bloody hair. Seems to me, and I know I'm not an expert, that she was already dead when she was in the car, because that would explain the little amount of blood found (no pumping of the heart, no flow of blood) and the place it was found (in the back). One can easily argue that he killed in the garage, moved her to the car, and only then got the plan to burn her instead and moved her again; to the pit. But the 'problem' is that that's not what the DA said what happenend. In my opinion that blood in the car contradicts the story (or truth) he wants us and the jury to believe, and contradicts also with the story of Dassey which is the only thing that links Dassey to the case: his own words. That doesn't mean Avery is innocent, but it might raise some doubt. The DA should stick with the facts, not filling in the blanks with guessing. If he can't prove exact chronologically he shouldn't state it as 'fact'.   Absolutely. I'm not convinced in anything, not in my opinion, not in yours, not at all in the people who made the documentary. Also not a fan of conspiracy theory's. I don't think the murder was planted on him, but I do think some mistakes were made by the justice system. Mistakes that possibly should have lead to his and maybe even more Dassey's release, even though there's a big chance he did it. That's for me perhaps the most interesting part in this case and in the discussion. If we want a justice system where the chance is close to 0% that we convict someone innocent, and the prosecution and police need to follow the rules, it means sometimes the guilty walk free. I think everything they found on the compount while Manitowoc detectives were present should have been excluded. I think the DNA on the blood of the bullet should have been excluded. I think the 'confession' of Dassey should have been excluded. I think Dassey should have given at least a new trial, but that was denied by the same judge which handled his initial case (?!).
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      A long time ago, by Tiger's own admission,  said a golfer's career is measured by "majors won" . So if Woody does not break Jack's major record, then according to Woody, his career will be second to Jack's. Now Jack has said that he expects (expected) Woody to break his major record. So Jack is saying he expects Woody will have the better career.  These are the only two guys who would know who had the best career.   Neither one is going to be the GOAT. They will just be a GOTE. 
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Nope, you blindly worship Jack.  It is obvious that you have not read much, if any, of the thread.  But hey, you saw Jack.  In person, yet.  So what.  I did too.  I saw him win his last USGA championship at Cherry Hills.  I saw Tiger play as well - although in person I only saw practice rounds.  So what.  That does not make my assessment of their respective careers more or less credible.  Geee, I never saw Hogan play so I guess we cannot count him in the discussion.   You think Jack was better.  That is fine.  You are entitled to your opinion.  Just don't spoil it with specious reasons or arguments.  Because those we will slice apart like one of Klinger's salamis.
