Nike is outfitting 10 of its golf athletes ahead of the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.

Defending champion Rory McIlroy, along with Tiger Woods, Paul Casey, Kevin Chappell, Ross Fisher, Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley, Francesco Molinari, Charl Schwartzel and Nick Watney will all be outfitted in the fall Nike golf collection.

McIlroy will wear the Nike Lunar Control 3 iD and Nike Lunar Control 3.

McIlroy is one of the top contenders for the title after winning the tournament last year — but he  hasn’t been on the green for more than a month after injuring his ankle on July 4 while playing soccer with friends.

The Irish star will face some stiff competition to recapture his title. Under Armour–sponsored 21-year-old Jordan Speith has become a standout star this year after winning the Masters and U.S. Open earlier this summer.

Justin Rose, sponsored by Adidas’ Taylor Made, is also a favorite and will tee off with McIlroy and Spieth on Thursday when the tournament stars.

McIlroy has been one of the rising stars of golf after winning the PGA Championship last year, the U.S. Open in 2011, and the PGA Championship in 2012. Nike signed him in January 2014, and also produced a spot featuring the golfer and his hero Tiger Woods in April of this year.
