A year after Nike Golf announced in the UAE that it had added two-time Major champion Rory McIlroy to its roster of athletes, the Northern Irishman will return to open a brand new Nike Golf stand-alone retail store in the Dubai Mall.

The 24-year-old will open the store on Monday, January 27 at 7pm…but not in the traditional way.

Instead of cutting a ribbon, the Nike Golf store will be declared open when McIlroy, flanked by a myriad of fans and shoppers, will putt into the shop front using his Method 006 putter and new RZN Black ball.

Commenting on the opening of the retail store, Nike Golf EMEA General Manager Angus Moir said: “As our brand in golf continues to resonate with more and more consumers, we are delighted to be partnering with Sun and Sand Sports in the UAE region to open a new standalone Nike Golf retail experience in EMEA at the iconic Dubai Mall.
