Rory McIlroy officially makes the switch to a new driver at the 2014 Ryder Cup

It's not the way product introductions are normally scripted, but then again the Rory McIlroy/Nike relationship from day one hasn't exactly been your typical player endorsement deal. McIlroy and Nike have confirmed the four-time major champion has put the company's yet-to-be-released Nike Vapor Pro driver in play at the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles -- a bold move for McIlroy, Team Europe and, most of all, Nike.
