Rory McIlroy's equipment changes leading up to his win at Wells Fargo
Since the PGA Tour resumed play in June 2020, Rory McIlroy has made several significant equipment changes.
Rory McIlroy won the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday and hoisted some hardware for the first time since 2019. It was the third time the Northern Irishman won at Quail Hollow Golf club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The victory firmly put him back into the conversation about players to watch at the PGA Championship next week at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina. Remember, he won there by eight shots when the PGA Championship was last played on Pete Dye’s devilishly tricky, wind-swept layout.
From an equipment standpoint, McIlroy is similar to many elite players. He typically is open to changing drivers when a new model is released, and he swaps out a 5-wood, a 2-iron and a hybrid depending on the course and conditions any given week. However, since the PGA Tour resumed play after the COVID-19 shutdown, McIlroy has made numerous changes and tweaks to his bag, adding new gear, opting to go back to old clubs, changing shafts and more.
Here are some of the most substantial changes he has made since the TaylorMade Driving Relief Challenge at Seminole Golf Club last May.
