WITB - Rory McIlroy wins with full bag of TaylorMade clubs

Rory Mc Ilroy Golf Bag

Rory McIlroy cruised to his second victory of the season, winning the Canadian Open by seven shots - and he did so wielding a full bag of TaylorMade clubs.

McIlroy, 30, warmed up for this week's US Open with an emphatic performance at Hamilton Golf & Country Club, destroying the field with a stunning final round of 61 that, but for two late bogeys, could have been so much better.

It's McIlroy's second victory in three months, following his triumph in the PLAYERS Championship in March.

• REVIEW - TaylorMade M5 driver is a "true all-rounder"

His bag differed a little this past week from how he set it up for Sawgrass. Out went his 2- and 3-irons in favour of an extra fairway wood and a fourth wedge.

• TaylorMade Spider X Putters – FIRST LOOK!

He had a TaylorMade M6 fairway wood, with 15˚ of loft, in the bag in Canada as well as a 52˚ TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe wedge.
