Rory McIlroy ‘Stripped Clean’.

Has Rory McIlroy been stripped clean of sponsors?

That could appear to be the scenario after viewing a tweeter pic of the reigning U.S. Open champion taken recently in Dubai.

Rory McIlroy's 'tweet' pic showing the U.S. Open champion wearing just an Oakey sponsored shirt.

McIlroy was photographed wearing a shirt bearing just the Oakey name during a TPI 3D photo session in the UAE.

There had been suggestions last June by former ISM manager, Chubby Chandler and straight after McIlroy’s Congressional command performance that they were working on stripping McIlroy clean of a number of sponsor logos on his attire.

In lieu, Chandler hinted McIlroy would carry one main sponsor on his shirt and that might now be the scenario ahead of McIlroy teeing up later this week in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

It would mean McIlroy ridding his attire of visible sponsor links with Swiss watchmaker, Audemars Piguet, Spanish banking giant, Santander Bank and long-time Jumeriah. could be wrong but watch this space!
