Rory McIlroy WITB (Early 2017)



Equipment is accurate as of The Masters (4/4/17). 

Driver: Callaway GBB Epic Sub Zero (9.5 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 70XTS

Fairway Woods: TaylorMade M2 Tour (13.5 and 18 degrees)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Tensei CK Blue 90TX (13.5), Fujikura Pro P95X (18)

Irons: Callaway Apex MB Prototype (4-9)
Shafts: True Temper Project X 7.0

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 (46-08 F Grind, 54-10 S Grind and 60-08 M Grind)
Shafts: True Temper Project X 6.5

Putter: Odyssey prototype with Microhinge Insert

Ball: Titleist Pro V1x (2017)

WITB Notes: McIlroy sometimes uses a 3-iron instead of a 5 wood. His Callaway GBB Epic Sub Zero driver is set to -1N (8.5 degrees, neutral). His 3 wood is set to +1N (14.5 degrees, neutral). His 46-degree wedge is bent to 47 degrees. His 54-degree wedge has 8 degrees of bounce. His 60-degree wedge is bent to 59 degrees; it also has a custom Vokey “V Grind.”

    That is the most obnoxious way to post a comment I have ever seen…

    Is that only 13 clubs??

      He’s put a 3-iron into the bag per the photos.

    That driver has to have dynamite in it. He keeps bombing further and further . . . . Good for him!

    Seems like a lot of tour pros are coming back home to Vokeys. Their grind offerings seem to make the most sense to me. RAW (no) finish to boot!

    Nice classical WITB in there. Like it.

    That looks like a tini silver shaft and NOT the XT.

      That’s the XTS, the tour prototype for the XT. It has the same graphics as the silver.

    Says 2W on the bottom of his driver,
    Is that for tour players only

    The blades are gorgeous but why is he persisting with those awful wedges? Never seen one in a bag all season where I play.

      He seems to get on alright with them.

        He surely does have more than 10 million reasons just in October 2016 to like his wedges. Personally, I really like them although I make no comparison between my game and Rory’s.

      You haven’t seen a vokey wedge in a bag where you play? You’re not looking very hard then.

      • Travis

        Jan 13, 2017 at 1:14 pm

        @Booya Cornflakes The comment was posted in October. He was referring to when Rory was using the Nike wedges.

      Perhaps where you play is full of hacks? You probably fit right in, though.

      Maybe the hackers at your course no something Rory doesnt….. 🙂

    If the M2 driver is set to “lower”, it should reduce the loft approx. 2 degree – according to TaylorMade…
    …thus he seems to play this driver with approx. 7.5 degree…

      They have different cogs on tour

    • Zak Kozuchowski

      Oct 29, 2016 at 7:38 am

      Tour Players generally use the 3-degree loft sleeves, not the 4-degree loft sleeves.

      • Uhit

        Oct 29, 2016 at 2:50 pm

        For what reason?
        Is there an advantage in comparison to the 4-degree loft sleeve?

        • OF

          Oct 29, 2016 at 3:24 pm

          I would assume that they have access to any of the 2-, 3- and 4-degree sleeves. It just depends what kind of specs they’re looking to get. No advantage per se, just different.

          goes up to 11

    Too soon to be calling it THE bag for 2017, innit? He may yet tinker and change a few things in the next couple months

    Why did they not regrip his driver after setting it to the “lower” setting on the hosel adjustment?

    • OF

      Oct 29, 2016 at 3:26 pm

      Good question. I hope that’s not his usual ribbed version of the NDMC.
