With Rory McIlroy the newly crowned BMW Champion we take a look inside the Nothern Irishman’s bag and see just what equipment he used on his way to victory.
Rory McIlroy’s Nike Golf Arsenal
Driver: Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Tour 8.5-degree, neutral position (Kuro Kage XTS 70X)
Rory McIlroy was third in driving distance statistics at the BMW Championship, launching the ball 294 yards on average.
Fairway Wood: Nike VRS Covert 3-wood/15-degree and 5-wood/19-degree
Irons: Nike VR Pro Blade (4-9)
Accurate iron shots helped McIlroy attack the pins on his way to the joint lowest score of the day, a 66.
Wedges: VR Forged 47-degree, 52-degree, 56-degree and VR X3X 59-degree toe sweep
Rory added these to his bag just this week. Their wider sole area toward the toe, and relieved heel, make them easier to hit from the toughest lies from anywhere around the green.
Putter: Nike Method 006
Rory McIlroy averaged 1.654 putts a hole for the championship, as expected his putter played a significant role in the win.
Ball: Nike RZN Black
Rory was impressed with the Nike RZN Black’s performance, especially when hitting it from the tee, labeling it “The best driver and ball combination I’ve ever had.”
