McIlroy's new putter, limited edition vokey wedges

Rory Spider

Ahead of this week’s US Open, Rory McIlroy looks likely to be putting TaylorMade’s Spider Tour Red putter in the bag.

The PGA Tour’s gear expert Jonathan Wall posted pictures of Rory’s new flat stick on his Twitter account.

A rib injury has meant that McIlroy has been sidelined since the Players Championship, where he had 13 TaylorMade clubs after  recently signing a multi-year deal with the company.

McIlroy will be joining the likes of world No.1 Dustin Johnson and world No.3 Jason Day if he opts to put the Spider Tour Red putter in the bag this week.

Vokey Wedges

The 456.14 features a classic design with increased offset and a rounded profile.
