20-time PGA tour winner and four-time major champion Rory McIlroy has signed a multi-year contract extension with TaylorMade.

McIlroy signed his initial deal with TaylorMade in 2017 and has since won seven PGA TOUR titles, a FedEx Cup and secured a Ryder Cup victory.

Under terms of the new agreement, the Northern Irishman will continue to play with TaylorMade equipment and golf balls. The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The extension follows TaylorMade’s recent decision to further bolster its Tour player portfolio with the additions of world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler and top-ranked amateur Keita Nakajima. Colin Morikawa and Dustin Johnson are also signed to TaylorMade.

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

McIlroy is set to defend his Wells Fargo Championship title this week at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, before making the trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the PGA Championship. The 32-year-old currently ranks seventh in the Official World Golf Ranking.

TaylorMade CEO and President, David Abeles, added, “Rory is undeniably one of the most captivating players in our game and truly one of the great human beings in the sports world. We have been fortunate to get a first-hand look at Rory’s approach to his game and the championship mindset that helps fuel his success.

Over the past five years, in partnership with Rory, our company has been able to advance product innovation and put the best possible equipment in his bag. Rory’s decision to continue to put his trust in our company has us inspired to push the limits of performance even further.”
