What’s in Rory McIlroy’s winning golf bag?

Rory McIlroy’s birdie-birdie finish included a fabulous 2-iron approach at the last which saw him win the Genesis Scottish Open. Here’s the clubs he used.

The world number two claimed the title by a single stroke ahead of fellow TaylorMade staffer Robert MacIntyre at the Renaissance Club.

McIlroy used a TaylorMade P760 2-iron for his decisive 202-yard shot into the 18th green to set up the win. His bag also contained unreleased MG4 wedges.

He considered using his 4-iron at the last but, facing a 25mph wind, changed at the last second to the 2-iron he had only just put in the bag for the week. It proved a great decision.

McIlroy’s driver and putter worked well all week, too. He led the field in driving distance at 331.9 yards as well as topping the field in strokes gained/off-the-tee with his 9-degree TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver.

The Stealth 2 Plus is the lowest spinning model in the Stealth range and is aimed at faster swing speeds and better ball strikers.

He was also one of the best on Sunday on the greens, gaining two strokes on the field with his TaylorMade Spider X Hydro Blast mallet putter.
