Rory McIlroy's 2018 set-up has been revealed, take a look at what clubs he's carrying with this Rory McIlroy what's in the bag?

Rory McIlroy What’s In The Bag?

Here is the gear Rory McIlroy is using to begin 2018 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

The four-time major winner returns this week after a three month period practising and recovering after a year plagued by a rib injury.

Last time we saw him, he had the TaylorMade M2 driver and M2 Tour fairway woods but he has switched those out for the new M3 driver and an M3 3 wood.

Other pros using the M3 include Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Jason Day.

He’s also carrying a P790 UDI 2 iron and has still got a mixed set of TaylorMade P750 3 and 4 irons and P730 Rors Proto irons from 5-9.

The 28-year-old is carrying two TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges in 47° and 54° lofts which are machine-milled to his personal specification.

A new addition to the bag is a 60° Milled Grind Hi-Toe lob wedge, the same model currently in the bag of world number one Dustin Johnson.

After a year switching between various different models of putter, McIlroy arrives in Abu Dhabi with a TaylorMade Mullen 2 flat stick with a red insert.

With the prolonged winter spell away from tournament golf you would imagine that he has settled on the Mullen 2 and will be using it for some time. Only time will tell.

He is still using the TaylorMade TP5x golf ball.

The four-time major winner signed with TaylorMade in May last year just before the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

Prior to that he had been in an equipment limbo after Nike announced they were to stop making golf clubs in August 2016.
