Golfers Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau have signed with Nike, Beaverton, Ore., to start the 2016 season, according to CBS Sports.

Koepka broke onto the golfing scene in early 2015 by winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open, along with a Top-10 finish at The Open Championship and the PGA Championship in the same year. Koepka currently is ranked No. 16 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

“Nike is an iconic brand,” Koepka says. “All these great, legendary athletes, such as Kobe Bryant, seem to be with Nike. I’m lucky enough to represent the best company in the world. I’m excited with what Nike will do in the future for the game of golf [and] I know that this partnership will help me achieve my personal goals.”

Finau has not secured his first win on the PGA Tour, but is ranked in the top 100 in the Official World Golf Rankings, and finished tied for 10th at the 2015 PGA Championship.
