Before teeing it up in this week’s Players Championship, Rory McIlroy is expected to sign a mega deal with TaylorMade.
The newlywed 28-year-old posted a video of himself (below) practising with a TaylorMade M2 driver and, according to Geoff Shackelford, he'll be signing a huge package to play a full bag of their equipment.
Since Nike’s departure from the hardware sector in August, McIlroy, perhaps more so than others, has enjoyed having the freedom to readily change the clubs he uses. He has, however, struggled to settle on a combination in the bag that works.
“It would be nice at some point to have a very settled bag where I know what I'm using week‑in, week‑out,” said McIlroy prior to The Masters.
And it looks as though, by the end of this week, he might have just that.

John Daly’s unique driver
John Daly is back in the winner’s circle for the first time since 2004 after winning the Insperity Invitational on the PGA Tour Champions.
Daly ,who currently sits fourth in the driving distance stats on the Champions Tour, penned a deal with Vertical Groove Golf back in Januaryand plays the brand's driver. The driver’s vertical grooves are designed to reduce sidespin, which leads to a straighter ball flight and a greater transfer of energy for longer drives.
Daly has said: “These grooves, I’m telling you right now, will help you to get 35-40% straight shots and you might hit it further. With all the drivers I’ve tested, I’m hitting this one eight to ten yards further.”
