Judging by pictures leaked by TaylorMade, Tiger Woods is about to make a serious change to his setup

It’s a new year to let’s take a look at the clubs Woods will be using as he looks to build on a very successful 2018.

And there’s been a pretty significant overhaul of the bag which he used to win the Tour Championship in September and more recently Tiger has been testing a new club that good make its debut this week.

It was a bit hit and miss for Woods off the tee with the M3 last year so it’s no surprise to see him putting the brand new TaylorMade M5 into play.

In testing we found the M5 to be significantly better than the M6 and think it’s possibly the driver to beat in 2019.

Woods has also plumped for the M5 3-wood which has a whopping 65-gram adjustable weight built into the head.

He’s sticking with the M3 5-wood for now but we expect him to get dialled in with the M5 at some point in the near future.

However, there could be a major change ahead of this week’s Genesis Open as Tiger has been testing a new long iron.

Judging by pictures from TaylorMade’s Instagram story, the 14-time major champion is set to add the TaylorMade P760 2-iron to his bag in the near future, meaning he will have to make room by removing one of his new P-7TW irons.

His irons were previously known as the TW Phase 1 irons but have now got a a new name.

It’s not necessarily a massive change in terms of how the irons look or perform but he has got a whole fresh set in the bag.

It will be very interesting to see if TaylorMade will bring these to market (they would be foolish not to) as we have also seen Tommy Fleetwood using them in Abu Dhabi.

His wedges are the same as last year – a 56˚ and 60˚ in the TaylorMade Milled Grind.

And it’s great to see the Scotty Cameron putter still in the bag. How cool would it be to see him win a major with it in 2019?
