Rory McIlroy’s switch to Scotty Cameron putter paying off in The Olympics

Published

Editor’s note: We filed this story on McIlroy’s switch to the Scotty Cameron 009M GSS Chromatic Bronze Prototype for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report.

Struggling with his iron play earlier this year, Rory McIlroy went back to a set of blades he had had much success with. Going back to his TaylorMade Rors Proto blades paid off with another win at the Wells Fargo Championship, his first TOUR title since 2019.

At this week’s Olympic golf competition outside Tokyo, McIlroy is applying the same logic to another portion of his golf bag.

McIlroy, who is representing Ireland alongside Shane Lowry, is doing his work on the greens of Kasumagaseki Country Club with a Scotty Cameron 009M putter, which is similar to the flatstick he used to win his first two majors.

“I think I sort of want to get back to being as athletic and instinctive as possible and I feel like that style of putter, that blade, it sort of helps me do that,” he said Friday after shooting 66. “It makes me become very target oriented, at the hole and having my focus be out there, instead of in here (looking down).”

When asked if the 009M reminds McIlroy of the younger, free-wheeling version of himself, he replied, “Yeah, it does.”
