Rory McIlroy was the toast of East Lake after winning the Tour Championship and, with it, the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup.

The Northern Irishman held off Xander Schauffele to win the season-long contest for the second time and, in the process, earned himself the richest prize in golf – a whopping $15million.

• Rory’s earnings per shot this year are incredible

• How the $45m FedEx Cup bounty was distributed

He got there using a full bag of TaylorMade golf equipment.

Key to his victory was his phenomenal driver. Using a TaylorMade M5 driver, the world No.2 led the field in Strokes Gained: Off The Tee and driving distance, with an average of 314.6 yards.


He also led the field in Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green – helped in no small part by his P750 / P730 irons.


Let’s take a closer look at the gear he used…
