Why it’s OK to care about pro golfers’ new equipment deals

It's a New Year's tradition. The ink on new contracts has dried, and scores of pro golfers -- from top-ranked players to journeymen to the grinders -- sign new equipment deals.

Overnight, pros who told you to play the clubs made by whoever was paying them will now tell you to play the clubs made by whoever is now paying them. It's a transparent transaction. The money talks.
