Rory shows off new “MM Proto” 2 iron on Instagram

Published

on

Rory McIlroy showed off a new 2 iron, called the “MM Proto,” on Instagram as he prepares for the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open this week.

According to a Nike representative, the prototype iron represents a collaborative effort between McIlroy, Tiger Woods and club engineers at The Oven. Speculations as to whether Woods or McIlroy will have the 2 iron in the bag for the The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool next week remain unanswered, but based on McIlroy’s willingness to share the club with his nearly 73,000 Instagram followers, it may be a consideration.

    If you build it they will come. Especially if you put it in the hands of someone who is a famous and great golfer. People will assume what the marketing people are brainwashing the public to believe lol if you’re a good golfer you can hit anything. Rory and tiger probably told them what color and name to put on the club lol I wonder how much tiger or rory are paid to use it and even mention it in public. Lol
