A lot has been written about Rory McIlroy’s poise and game. At 19, fairly or not, he’s making golf scribes and fans alike openly wonder if he is the future No. 1 player in the world. In fact, even Tiger Woods recently weighed in on the topic.
"He has the composure and all the components to be the best player in
the world. It’s just a matter of time and experience and then gaining
that experience in big events. That just takes time and, I mean, geez,
he’s only 19. Just give him some time and I’m sure he’ll be there."
McIlroy plays Titleist equipment through the bag, and recently made a trip to the company’s Carlsbad, Calif., headquarters to fine tune his gear. Below is a complete list of the clubs and shafts he is using, as well as a video provided by Titleist in which McIlroy describes why he made a few adjustments to his wedges.
