Check out the clubs Tiger Woods is using at Shinnecock Hills this week...

Tiger Woods WITB 2018. Let’s take a look at the equipment the 14-time major winner will be using at the US Open.

We’ve seen a fair few changes in Tiger’s bag since he made his comeback at the Hero World Challenge.

Most significantly is a new set of TaylorMade irons after switching from the mysterious TGR Prototypes.

He started the season with the TaylorMade M2 driver before switching to the new M3 model.

He initially struggled with his 440cc TaylorMade M3 driver so has switched to a larger 460cc head and added one degree of loft.

He’s now also put in the same Mitsubishi Tensei Orange driver shaft that Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter used for their victories in 2018.

We’ve also seen Woods put a new TaylorMade M3 3-wood in the bag and he’s gone with the same shaft in that as well.

We’ve seen Tiger stick with his TaylorMade TP UDi 2-iron which has been used plenty off the tee.

Tiger’s putter is the trusty Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS with the same Ping grip he has used since his first Masters victory in 1997.

Well, it’s the same grip model. We suspect Tiger has had his putter re-gripped a few times down the years.

His golf ball is the Bridgestone Tour B XS and his clothes and shoes will be Nike – obviously.
