Tiger Woods put a new TaylorMade driver in play at the start of 2024, but what is it?
Tiger Woods was back in the Bahamas swinging his clubs at the start of December.
He said the best-case scenario is playing once a month on the PGA Tour in 2024, and he’s starting this commitment at the Genesis Invitational.
We’ve sorted out who is caddying for him (at Riviera Country Club at least).
Now all we need to know is what driver the 15-time major champion is using.
What we do know is Woods has updated his bag in this department, but which new big stick has he put in?
Tiger Woods driver: What one is he using now?
Woods did have a TaylorMade Stealth+ driver with a Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X shaft at the beginning of 2023 but he put a fresher model in play for his first competitive start since the Masters in Albany in December 2023.
This previous TaylorMade model was the driver he used at Augusta National before he withdrew during round three with an injury.
As Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis showed on Twitter/X on November 28, the 48-year-old was using the new TaylorMade Qi10 LS driver that had recently been added to the R&A and the USGA’s conforming list.
Rory McIlroy also used this driver before it was released to the public at the 2023 DP World Tour Championship, as did his European Ryder Cup teammate Tommy Fleetwood.
It appeared Woods attached a Graphite Design Tour AD-VF 6 X shaft to the new head.
Golf fans are always keen to see how well Woods drives the ball, and how well he plays as he looks to ramp up his participation on the PGA Tour this year.
What golf shoes is Tiger Woods wearing?
When Woods stepped on to the driving range at the Hero World Challenge, golf fans also got into a furore about what golf shoes he was wearing.
It was always the FootJoy Premiere Series for the 82-time PGA Tour winner, but NCG understands that he was testing Nike prototypes during practice on Tuesday before the event began.
However, NCG was also told he wore a pair of FootJoy Premiere Series Wilcox in the Pro-Am ahead of the 72-hole, 20-man field event.
Woods had worn Nike golf shoes for his entire career, but this changed when he went to Augusta in 2022 wearing a pair of FootJoy shoes.
But now, following the groundbreaking launch of Sun Day Red, the new TaylorMade apparel and footwear brand, you can expect to see Woods shift in shiny new SDR shoes from now on.
