Hopefully we'll see a bit more of this.  Already had Nick Watney spotted with JPX900 Tour some months back.

I'd be very surprised if just these two moved over. Would be good to get a regular contender on the rota.

TM woods though, it'll just be the irons I'm guessing. But would be worth giving it a pop :)

Along the same lines as Nike, I wonder what will eventually happen to Taylormade. They've been for sale for a while and personally, I haven't heard a single rumor of anyone being interested in them.

Imagine the scramble if they go out of business.

In the meantime, I've heard their problem was caused by putting out new lines too frequently, but they seem to be maintaining the same marketing plan. That can't be healthy.
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...

Difficult to predict. Ping have introduced a new "i" range and the new-ish Srixon clubs Z545 / 565 also look good. But who plays them?

Mcilroy hit some wonderful shots with his Callaway Apex MB in SAfrica, but he also hit some dross. Maybe not just the clubs after all.

I guess the also-rans will always take the money from TM etc, leaving the cream to choose what's best for them.

If you look at McIlroy's irons, they look exactly like his muscle back Nike irons. They are not a model available to the general public, not that is is anything we haven't seen in the past.

If I was involved in the marketing of a golf equipment company, I'd really try to have our tour pros play a club the fans could recognize.
