NORMALLY it is women who stand accused of wielding handbags at dawn.
But has a toxic row over Rory McIlroy's golf bag landed the former world number one and his agency in Judge Peter Kelly's Commercial Court bunker?
There are many claims and counter claims, but it is possible to trace much of the discontent to the lucrative Nike deal which saw Horizon net some 20pc for the duration of the five-year contract.
The deal was a resounding success for McIlroy and Horizon.
But aspects of the deal reportedly soured internal relations between Horizon's MD Conor Ridge and Horizon consultant Donal Casey.
Disagreements emerged over whether McIlroy's golf bag, a boon for sponsors as it features prominently in TV and photos, should be included in the Nike deal.
As well as the bag, Ridge and Casey had what McIlroy claimed is a "serious" dispute over the success fee Casey would receive for his role in brokering the deal.
McIlroy's opening salvo laid bare many accusations that are sure to be vigorously contested. But few winners emerge from court disputes like this.
