Rocking a Tensei Pro White in the driver now, i know hes used it in the 3w for a year or two but hes been a KK and PO guy lately.

Also had steel in his 2i now instead of HZRDUS 105.

Interesting...


Btw, he is the worst wedge player i've seen on tour in a decade. :censored2:

I am normally not one to dive into stats, but your post got me interested to see how his wedge game has fared and the result was eye grabbing.

i am going to say this knowing that it really does not compare. but Rory plays the same way i do. I driver the ball really well.  i hit a lot of fairways and have a lot of wedges into greens. But, i rarely hit it close so i two putt par, or three putt bogey and move on. Only on those days where i hole a putt or two, or hit a couple closer than normal do i score better than a few strokes above par.

Rory is an infinitely better than i am, but the game style is similar.

No hiding Rory did not have a good Sunday but he was 11th in Strokes Gained Putting at Kapalua. Don't think it was a bad first week at all with the Spider prototype. Was also +2.824 SG Putting thru 3 rounds.

He was -1.4 SGP on Sunday. It wasn't good. But he was + SGP in all three rounds prior to the final round and his stroke looked good. In other words, it wasn't an issue with the putter.

God forbid he uses the same putter he won the 2018 API with...I don't get him.

This.  I will never understand why he went away from that putter.  

He might as well go back these wedges and the good old yellow Golf Pride NDMC grips.

Approach shots from 100 to 125 yards
Rory McIlroy  Rank T-163
Number of rounds in 2019 season-8
Average distance to cup- 23' 0"
Total distance in feet- 138.083"
Number of attempts-6
Score relative to par on attempts-Even par

While not great, that is quite a small sample size.

I think some would be surprised to see his stats for the 2018 season:

APPROACHES FROM 50-75 YARDS 16' 11" 126TH
APPROACHES FROM 75-100 YARDS 13' 10" 7TH
APPROACHES FROM 100-125 YARDS 17' 5" 15TH
APPROACHES FROM 50-125 YARDS 16' 4" 8TH   
APPROACHES FROM 125-150 YARDS 19' 5" 2ND

APPROACHES FROM 150-175 YARDS 29'4" 156TH
APPROACHES FROM 175-200 YARDS 31' 6" 33RD

He was one of the best on Tour in proximity <150 yards.

(Note: he only had 13 recorded approaches from 50-75 yards)

I saw a pic of his bag with a second High Toe...54 I believe. I do remember watching the PGA last summer and one of the commentators mentioning he should switch to a higher spinning ball.

He switched from the TP5x to the TP5 at the start of the Playoffs or PGA last year, which is a higher spin ball. Not sure if he switched back to the 5x this year or stuck with the 5 this year.
He used the TP5, all of the other tour big names are using the X.

Approach shots from 100 to 125 yards                
Rory McIlroy  Rank T-163                
Number of rounds in 2019 season-8                
Average distance to cup- 23' 0"                
Total distance in feet- 138.083"                
Number of attempts-6                
Score relative to par on attempts-Even par

While not great, that is quite a small sample size.

I think some would be surprised to see his stats for the 2018 season:

APPROACHES FROM 50-75 YARDS                            16' 11"                            126TH                                            
APPROACHES FROM 75-100 YARDS                            13' 10"                            7TH                                            
APPROACHES FROM 100-125 YARDS                            17' 5"                            15TH                                            
APPROACHES FROM 50-125 YARDS                            16' 4"                            8TH                                          
APPROACHES FROM 125-150 YARDS                            19' 5"                            2ND                                            

APPROACHES FROM 150-175 YARDS                            29'4"                            156TH                                            
APPROACHES FROM 175-200 YARDS                            31' 6"                            33RD            

He was one of the best on Tour in proximity <150 yards.

(Note: he only had 13 recorded approaches from 50-75 yards)

They were talking about these very stats during golf channel telecast. His strokes gain putting last year was not great overall but it was his 2nd best year on tour. He just seems a bit lost playing in the final group now, I think it’s more mental than anything else.

This.  I will never understand why he went away from that putter.  

He might as well go back these wedges and the good old yellow Golf Pride NDMC grips.

it is amazing to watch him hit driver. it is crazy to think that someone that has that kind of control with a long club is so glitchy with a wedge.
Do you think it's because he plays PX 6.5s (fairly stout) in them? I know it's a flex down from his regular iron shafts, but maybe if he used something with a bit more "feel" like S400 or something?

who am i to comment on what he plays?? conventional wisdom would say yes. but what do i know??
Preach.

Xander plays x100s and is looking like a pretty amazing wedge player

He kept using that putter after the tournament and had nothing but bad putting with it. He was just hot that week, nothing else. It's super frustrating as a huge McIlroy fan. He'd be #1 in the world with 2-3 more majors under his belt if he could putt.

I bet... would love to see that putter come at retail. fully milled, no weights, no insert, no marketing garbage and bring back the 2008 studio select light mill. unicorn land i guess

Rory must literally hate golf. All the talent he has but hasnt been able to put it all together for years.
So so frustrating to watch and probably for him

Then again - Im sure the millions of dollars he has keeps him warm at night and helps him forget the shots he throws away each round....
