What’s in Rory’s PGA Championship winning bag?August 11, 2014 Golf News
We take a look at the clubs which helped Rory to win bad-to-back majors with victory at the PGA Championship
Nike Golf athlete Rory McIlroy used the combination of his Nike Covert 2.0 Tour driver and his Nike RZN Black ball to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2007/8 to win three times in a row.
McIlroy ranked first in driving distance for the third straight week, averaging 315-yard drives on his way to a fourth major title at Valhalla.
“I’ve never won three times in a row. And I’ve never won back-to-back majors,” said McIlroy. “It’s a whole new experience for me doing what I’ve done this summer, so I’m trying to let it all sink in.”
The number one player in the world gutted it out for the entire round.
The game changer was on the 10th hole. Sitting three shots back, McIlroy hit his Nike Covert 2.0 3-wood on the par 5 to within seven feet of the hole and sank the putt for eagle with his Nike Method 006 putter.
He built a two-stroke lead with a 10-foot birdie putt at the 17th and sealed his win with a par on the 18th hole.
On the body, McIlroy sported apparel from Nike Golf’s Performance Collection and the Nike Lunar Control shoe.
