Well, you’re not going to believe this. USA Today reports that Nike irons were the the No. 1 used irons at the Masters — apparently by paying some of the “older” players $20,000 to use the Nike irons.

Here’s the scoop: “How it was won, though, has competitors accusing Nike of guerrilla marketing for paying several past Masters champions $20,000 each to play its irons. Charles Coody, Tommy Aaron, Sandy Lyle, Ray Floyd and Billy Casper — who shot 106 — all played under the swoosh at Augusta National. Those aging stars were enough for Nike to edge TaylorMade 17-15.”
