McIlroy planned to play aggressively off the tee this week at a greener, softer TPC Sawgrass, saying the following at his pre-tournament press conference

“I think the course over the last 10 years or whatever it’s been in May, it hasn’t lent itself to aggressive play. It’s sort of position and irons off tees and really trying to plot your way around the golf course, where I hit drivers on holes today that I would never have hit driver the last few years. So just to be a little more aggressive, get a shorter club in your hand, and even when you are aggressive and you miss, it’s a touch easier to get yourself back into position.”

The approach paid off. The Ulsterman was second in the field in strokes gained: off the tee at 5.309. He was fifth in the field in driving distance (305 yards). He led the field in strokes gained: tee to green.

Handicap: 6

PixlPuttermanWITB

Driver: Taylormade Original One Mini (9.5-degrees)
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold x100

“I have always loved smaller head drivers and usually bagged a 983k x100 combo. Had tried all the minis but they went too high….not a problem any more the TaylorMade Original One Mini. Tried a few graphite but just didn’t feel as good as my trusty x100. Playing at 9.5-degrees, 42.75”-nice mid trajectory with low spin.”

Utility iron: Mizuno MP Fli Hi (18-degrees, 23-degrees)
Shafta: KBS C Taper 125, KBS C Taper 120

“I don’t play woods, never hit them well, surely never better than my driver. I’m plenty long with my 2 iron, so it’s a great tee club. Just don’t find myself needing to go for anything “260 out”…the reward just isn’t there for the risk…

I’ve had these for ten years. The 2 iron has been bent down to 15 degrees and then back to 18 a few times. Few different shafts too but I’ve settled into the C Tapers a few seasons ago and have been happy.”

Irons: Srixon z765 (5), Wilson Staff FG62 (6-PW)
Shafta: True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 (Hard Stepped)

“I’ve never been the biggest 5 iron fan, probably because the Flu Hi 4 is so easy to hit….bought a z765 head on a whim to try a V sole and it’s been great since.”

“Playing 6-PW of the Wilson FG62…these are just butter. Hard stepped S300.”

Wedges: TaylorMade HiToe (52,56,62-degrees)

“Wedges, you know ’em, you love ’em. Wanted a low bounce 56 and a high bounce 62, so I bent a 58 and a 60, boom just want I need.”

Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport Oil Can

“I like 320-330g heads so this should be in the bag for a long time since everything new is a lot heavier. I’ll never not use a P2 Aware, just feels perfect in the hands.”

Putter Grip: P2 Aware

Ball: 2016 Nike RZN Platinum
