It didn’t take long for Mizuno Golf to swoop in and try and recruit Nike players. Here they are tweeting to some of them with an invitation.

“Team Mizuno now holding open tryouts” with invitations to:
- Tiger Woods
- Rory McIlroy
- Kevin Chappell
- Jhonattan Vegas
- Russell Henley
- Michelle Wie
Those are some big Nike shoes to fill.
When Nike made the huge announcement on Wednesday that they would be exiting the golf equipment game it was only a matter of time before their big name players would have to also make a change.
