Rory McIlroy’s Golf Gear Through The Years

Rory McIlroy turned professional in 2007 and immediately signed with Titleist, the same brand he used during his latter amateur days.

However, the Ulsterman signed with Nike in 2013 and then joined TaylorMade in 2017.

Here we take a look at the gear he’s used in each season on Tour:

2005 and 2006

In the two year’s prior to turning professional, McIlroy was using the Titleist 905 driver, Titleist 660 forged blades and a Scotty Cameron putter

2007

McIlroy turned pro in 2007 and was using a 907D2 driver, 906 fairway wood, 585 hybrid, 660 irons, Titleist Vokey wedges, a Scotty Cameron putter and Titleist Pro V1x ball.
