Nike to announce addition of Rory McIlroy

Nike will release the middle photo on Monday. (Nike)

It is golf's worst-kept secret. It has been golf's worst-kept secret for a while.

Finally, officially, Rory McIlroy could join team Nike on Monday in an announcement from Abu Dhabi, where he and Tiger Woods will be teeing it up in the HSBC Championship.

We will finally have the photo above filled out with Nike's five newest guys (from left to right): Kyle Stanley, Nick Watney, McIlroy, Seung-yul Noh, and Thorbjørn Olesen.

According to this report, Nike told Golf.com a few weeks ago that it was planning to make a major announcement on Monday.

I can't wait to see how they do it.

Will he run out of a smoking tunnel NFL-style, head to toe in Nike gear?

Will Woods physically put the clothing on his body?

Will there be Nike swoosh tattoos?

The possibilities really are endless.

Whatever goes down, we'll have you covered here at Eye on Golf. You can follow @EyeOnGolf or @KylePorterCBS on Twitter and like us on Facebook to be kept up-to-date.
