It took until 2010 for him to have a full bag of Nike equipment. That was when he first put a Nike putter in to play instead of his Scotty Cameron. So he is yet to win a Major with a full bag of Nike equipment.

When Tiger Woods won the last of his Majors at the 2008 US Open he used a Nike SasQuatch driver and fairway woods, the irons were Nike Forged Blades and his wedges were also the Nike Forged.
