Recent reports and data from the United States Patent and Trademark Office indicated how ‘TaylorMade Lifestyle Ventures LLC’ had applied for a Sunday Red trademark. They did so on December 13, a day before the father-son event, the PNC Championship. Moreover, a third-party independent trademark research tool known as the USPTO report also divulged how a new application (No. 98363643) was submitted on January 18, consisting of an updated logo with the same name.

That’s not all. There have been a lot of cryptic messages from the golfer as well as the company hinting at the same. A post was even shared by Woods on his Instagram, which included a video of him using the clubmaker’s products along with a caption indicating how “This year… the numbers are changing” with TaylorMade.

Adding on to the speculations, there were also reports by the Daily Mail U.K. divulging the possibility of a new partnership with the brand in the line of clothing. It mentioned how the company is reportedly set to “expand its clothing range after advertising job positions for its ‘new apparel division’ last month.” Well, if the rumors do come true, it appears to be bad news for FootJoy.
