Inside Rory McIlroy’s Golf Bag

After reading an article from PGATour.com about what clubs Rory McIlroy carries, I started to second guess the clubs in my bag. I mean, if one of the top golfers in the world (arguably the best) uses specific clubs, then maybe, just maybe, we amateurs need to take notice.

It is really working for me and it might for you as well.
