Tiger Woods has a new partnership.

Woods announced Monday that he has partnered with TaylorMade Golf to launch a lifestyle brand that will be called “Sun Day Red.”

There are things that I could tell you that no one knew I was doing over the years,” Woods said in a statement on the Sun Day Red official website. “I’m ready to share those secrets with the world. Sun Day Red will embody a love of playing and competing, and we are for people that share those values, whether it’s on the course, or in life. We will be anchored to putting the athlete first in the product decisions we make.”

Sun Day Red is set to launch on May 1, 2024.

The Woods, Sun Day Red announcement comes three days before the star golfer gets ready to make his 2024 debut in the Genesis Invitational at Riviera.
