Tiger Woods is launching a new clothing line called "Sunday Red," or "SDR," in collaboration with TaylorMade, marking the end of his 27-year partnership with Nike announced last January. The California phenomenon will unveil all the details of what he has dubbed "a new chapter" in his career during an upcoming press conference.

"The vision remains the same," Woods recently posted on X, referring to his 15 Major championships. The official debut of the new clothing line will take place this week, from February 15th to 18th, at Pacific Palisades, California, during the Genesis Invitational, a PGA Tour event marking his return to competition.
The color red, symbolizing Sunday and thus what Woods has worn in every final round of major tournaments, will still be the focal point of his new commercial venture. Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods, born on December 30, 1975, is an American professional golfer renowned for his exceptional achievements in the sport.
He shares the record for the most PGA Tour wins, ranks second in men's major championships, and holds numerous golfing records. Woods is widely celebrated as one of the greatest golfers in history and is considered one of the most iconic athletes of modern times.
He is honored as an inductee of the World Golf Hall of Fame. After an illustrious junior, college, and amateur golf career, Woods turned professional in 1996 at the age of 20. By April 1997, he had already claimed three PGA Tour victories along with his first major win at the 1997 Masters, triumphing by a staggering 12 strokes in a record-breaking performance.
Within less than a year of turning pro, Woods ascended to the number one spot in the Official World Golf Ranking in June 1997. Throughout the early 2000s, Woods dominated the golfing world, holding the top ranking for a combined total of 545 consecutive weeks from August 1999 to October 2010 and securing 13 major championship titles during this period.
However, the following decade of Woods's career was marked by personal challenges and injury setbacks. He took a break from professional golf from December 2009 to April 2010 to address marital issues with his then-wife, Elin, amidst admissions of marital infidelity.
Subsequent injuries led to multiple back surgeries between 2014 and 2017, severely impacting his ability to compete. Woods faced a significant decline in his world ranking, dropping out of the top 1,000 golfers between August 2015 and January 2018.
Despite these obstacles, Woods staged an impressive comeback, gradually reclaiming his position at the pinnacle of the sport. He marked his return to form by winning his first tournament in five years at the Tour Championship in September 2018 and achieved a remarkable victory at the 2019 Masters, securing his first major title in 11 years.
