Rory McIlroy is looking for a new club manufacturer after Nike decided to leave the business. In his first event of the 2016-2017 season, McIlroy, currently ranked third in the official world golf rankings, may be joining Jason Day (1) and Dustin Johnson (2), who both re-signed with the company last month, on the TaylorMade wagon.
According to Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte, McIlroy was warming up with a TaylorMade M2 driver and fairway woods at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, China.
The picture below appears to show McIlroy with a TaylorMade fairway wood and confirm the reports.
If these numbers from Chris Solomon are any indication of how well McIlroy is hitting the TaylorMade M2, get ready for some bombs.
We’re all still impatiently waiting to see what Tiger decides to do with all of the clubs he’s got sitting around at his house.
We’ll have a WGC-HSBC Champions preview tomorrow!
