What gear does Rory McIlroy have in play? Hannah Holden takes a look at his setup

World No 1 Rory McIlroy is back to winning ways after a 72-hole birdie helped him lock up the Hero Dubai Desert Classic title. But what gear is he using in 2023? Let’s take a closer look at Rory McIlroy’s WITB.

What’s in Rory McIlroy’s bag?

Rory has kept the TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver in play. He then has a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus 3-wood and a TaylorMade Stealth Plus 5-wood to round out his metal wood collection.

Although he put a Stealth UDI driving iron in play for the Open he has now taken this out of the bag and plays a full set of TaylorMade P730 Rors Proto irons from 3-iron to 9-iron.
