Pics: What do you make of the first Rory McIlroy-designed Nike gear?

Just over a year after he signed up with the brand, here's the first bit of kit the golfer had a hand in designing.

According to the bods at Nike at the launch in Florida yesterday, Rory McIlroy had a lot of input into the design of this new shirt, and we can expect to see the man himself wearing them at the Masters later this year.

Called the 'Lightweight Innovation Color Polo' the shirt is designed to be seamless, with whatever bits of stitching there are pushed to the upper back of the shirt to allow more room for the shoulders during the swing.

All the other usual stuff about lightweight fabrics, sweat-wicking technology and the like is also included and the shirts are on sale now at $75 a pop (about €55).

They come in six colours right now, and here a few of them

We think it is safe to say that Rory has a way to go to catch up with the likes of John Daly...
