POWERED BY M5 DRIVER & '19 TP5 GOLF BALL, RORY MCILROY CAPTURES THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE WITH FULL BAG OF TAYLORMADE PRODUCT McIlroy's 15th career PGA TOUR victory is the 3rd win on Tour for TaylorMade’s New M5 & M6 Drivers featuring the company’s ground-breaking Injected Twist Face technology; also second win in three weeks for new Spider X putter WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: As he has since the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Rory has continued to play a 9° M5 Driver, of which he's found remarkable success this season. At TPC Sawgrass, Rory averaged 305 yards off the tee for the tournament - good for fifth in the field. In addition to the M5 driver, McIlroy also games a 19° M5 titanium fairway, which he put into play the same week he added the M5 driver to the bag - in Kapalua. Rory's first PGA TOUR win of the season is the 4th win for the new 2019 TP5/x golf ball - joining Johnson (x2) and Fowler as staffers who've won playing it. Rory's preferred golf ball is the is the '19 TP5, stamped #22. Working diligently to find his putting stroke heading into the season's first major championship, McIlroy added the new Spider X putter to his equipment arsenal this season and the results have been impressive. This week, he carded 21 birdies or better en route to victory. His win is the second on the PGA TOUR with the company's newest putter; joining the winner of the Honda Classic. Having played the Milled Grind Wedges since first joining Team TaylorMade, Rory's setup has remained fairly consistent throughout the year This week, he opted for the Milled Grind Raw in 48°, complementing it with 54° & 60° Milled Grind Hi-Toe wedges. With the win, McIlroy will elevate to #4 in the OWGR and is set to be a #1 seed at the WGC-Dell Match Play next week.

Tennis, Australians, break ups, Caddies, and Colin Montgomerie, they all have more than one thing in common at least this weekend. Jessica Korda, daughter of tennis star, Petr Korda, who won the 1998 Australian Open, and the one who broke up with her caddie last year mid round of the US Open, and drafted her boyfriend to caddie for her, won her second tournament of the year, with a bag full of Taylormade at the Airbus LPGA Classic. Rory McIlroy as we all heard, broke up with his tennis star fiancÃ©e just last week, and then, with the semi-used engagement ring in the bag, and the Nike new Toe Sweep Wedge in the bag, goes out to win the BMW PGA Championship on the Euro Tour. I hope we do not hear that he got his caddie to fill in for the now deposed girlfriend. Australian Adam Scott, using a caddie from a couple of former world number 1 golfers, not only accents to the title of World Number 1 Golfer, but also wins The Colonial to both solidify his world ranking and become the first person in history to win all four Texas tournaments. He did so with a bag full of Titleist clubs in extra holes over Jason Dufner, who also had a bag full of Titleists. And Colin Montgomerie with a bag of Callaways' finally has a PGA Tour event win, and finally a major win, albeit the Senior PGA Championship.
