Here we take a look at the clubs Rory McIlroy has in the bag.

Rory McIlroy What’s In The Bag?

Rory McIlroy captured his first PGA Tour victory in over a year this past weekend after he secured the Players Championship by one stroke.

He has made a stellar start to the 2019 season with top-6 finishes in each of his five previous starts. Although there was considerable criticism for not winning especially in Hawaii, Mexico and Bay Hill, Rory’s form shone through playing quality shots under pressure down the stretch at TPC Sawgrass.

But what does the Northern Irishman put into his bag for the win? We take a look below.

The four-time major winner signed with TaylorMade in 2017 and currently plays a full bag of TaylorMade equipment, including all 14 clubs and his ball.

Rory had been using the M3 driver however, for 2019, he has just switched it out to the brand new TaylorMade M5.

The M5 has new Speed Injected Twist Face technology which is where tuning resin is injected into the face to make sure they conform to USGA and R&A guidelines.

Rory is regularly one of the longest hitters on Tour, last year for example he led the PGA Tour in driving distance with 319.7 yards and he will look to continue that play with his new equipment.

Rory had been switching between the M3 and M4 fairway woods throughout 2018 but right now it appears as if he has switched to the new TaylorMade models.

At the moment he has both the M6 and M5 in the bag as a 3-wood and strong 5-wood respectively, although for the win in Florida he took the M6 3-wood out of the bag.

He has been using a TaylorMade P790 UDI 2 iron with a Project X HZRDUS 105 6.5 graphite shaft.

McIlroy plays with a mixed set of irons with a TaylorMade P750 3 and 4 iron and P730 Rors Proto irons from 5-9. They’re fitted with Project X 7.0 shafts. (Pictured below)

The 29-year-old is carrying three TaylorMade wedges in 48°, 54° and 60° lofts which are machine-milled to his personal specification.

The 48° is a Milled Grind version whereas the 54° and 60° are both HI-TOE wedges. All three have Project X (6.5) shafts.

Rory’s putting have been well documented and he has used a few different models including both the Soto and Juno TaylorMade models. However right now he has switched to a 2019 TaylorMade Spider X which he put into play at the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions and has been having some success with it as he made putt after putt on the back-nine to win his 15th PGA Tour title at Sawgrass.

Rory is now using the 2019 TaylorMade TP5 ball and uses new Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour shoes.
