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.

A 19º fairway wood... so now there will be a steep decline in 3 wood sales.  😉

That’s probably not a bad thing for most amateurs

6* of gap between wedges I see...Interesting

I have the same gap between mine.  I don't see it as an issue.  I practice 9:00, 10:30, and full shots for each wedge.

Truth, when I worked at Dick's I would always try to get people into more of a 4 wood over a traditional 3 wood just for better launch conditions because of the help the loft gives you. I find it interesting looking at the signatures of people with their bags in them and seeing how many one wood players go in that 16-19 degree loft instead of a stronger 14-15 loft. It warms my heart.

I struggled with 15* or stronger and played 5w. Had somebody put me in a 16.5 and haven’t looked back since.

I've always preferred a 4 wood over a 3 wood.  I'm carrying a 16.5*, 21*, 24* wood.  It works for me.

I mean, just one more on the topic of the wood selection of tour pros. They're looking to use that fairway wood for long approaches on par 5's that they can bring in high, so it doesn't surprise me to see these higher lofted woods, especially with 2 or utility iron players, as they likely go to those of short tees if they need to find fairway.

Not to mention how far they hit their drivers and other clubs!

That’s the reason Rors isn’t using a 3w. Said it was too long

      Today, I was greeted with a lovely Taylormade iron box.  I walked into the door and saw the box and immediately asked my wife what it was.  She replied with, "I don't know.  You tell me?"  I started going through my mind about all of the searches I've done recently.  I got scared I pocket purchased a club on accident.  I replied with, "I swear babe.  I haven't bought anything.  Especially with out telling you first."  I opened the box and saw the below beauty sitting there.  I picked up the card and was surprised to see I had been selected based on my response to a post.  If I'm being perfectly honest, I can't even remember submitting anything to win the club.  But none the less, I'm thankful for the opportunity. 
      Based on my initial thoughts of looking down at the club at address, it's nice.  I don't have a feeling of oh shoot I have to be good to game these.  The wide top line provides the confidence.  The top line doesn't seem overly wide though.  I'm a single digit handicapper right now and I could easily see myself gaming an entire bag of these.  RANT INCOMING: (I really don't understand why most golfers want to have Blades.  I get the allure of the sleek nature of the irons, but from a performance standpoint, if you can't put little round wear marks in your irons, I really don't believe blades is best.  I know there can be outliers, but double digit handis definitely shouldn't be gaming blades.  The point of irons isn't to look the best while you're at address.  Save looking good for apparel.  I'd rather have an iron that performs amazing but doesn't look the greatest.  I understand the point of look good feel good though).
      In the coming weeks, I plan on providing my unbiased review of this iron.  I'm currently gaming the Taylormade PSI irons.  We'll see how big of a difference a couple years makes for technology.  I love the feel of the PSI's when I flush them.  It seriously feels like butter when cutting through the ball and the grass.  Coming from the S55's, it's amazing the difference in feel and forgiveness.
