Rory: I don't play for the money
Last updated: 15th January 2013
All the attention may centre on his multi-million pound sponsorship deal, but for Rory McIlroy winning majors is the name of the game.
Nike finally confirmed on Monday that they signed the Ulsterman as a brand ambassador and reports suggest his 10-year contract is worth as much as £150million.
While talk has been about money since the announcement, McIlroy - a two-time major winner - says his focus will always be on winning titles, especially majors.
"I don't play golf for the money, I am well past that," the 23-year-old said at a press conference in Abu Dhabi.
"I'm a major champion and world number one, which I have always dreamed of being, and feel this is a company that can help me sustain that and win even more major titles.
"At the end of 2013, if I have not won another major I will be disappointed."
McIlroy, who won the 2011 US Open and last year's US PGA Championship, hopes to improve even further next year after winning four PGA Tour events and once on the European Tour in 2012.
"Hopefully now using Nike I have an even better year than last year," he said. "Last year was great winning a second major Championship and getting to No.1 in the world and this year I feel I can go to a new level and higher than I ever had and hopefully more majors."
