It's fair to say Rory McIlroy comes into the new year - and new decade - with high expectations following a superb 2019.
The Northern Irishman won five times around the world last year, which included the Players Championship for the first time and a third World Golf Championship. In the process, he also bagged the FedEx Cup, the PGA Tour 'Player of the Year' title and narrowed on the gap on Brooks Koepka at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking.
So, yeah, 2020 has a lot to live up to. Fortunately for the 30-year-old, he'll be well tooled as he bids to emulate events of the last 12 months.
For one thing, he's put the brand new TaylorMade SIM driver straight in the bag for his opening tournament of the year, the Farmers Insurance Open. Like most of his fellow TM staffers, McIlroy has gone with the new driver over his 2019 club, the TaylorMade M5.

For good measure, he's also gone with the new TaylorMade SIM fairways and hybrid, and will continue to play a mixed set of irons, with the P760 at the longer end and the P730 elsewhere.
He's going with the TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges and is sticking with the same Spider X putter he used to such great effect last year.
