Tiger Woods’ golf equipment at 2017 Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods’ bag contained an eclectic mix of old and new golf equipment when he competed back in February, combining new woods with old irons and an even older putter.

Now, as the 14-time major winner prepares to hit the greens once again, it looks like he is going a similar route with his choice of golf clubs.

At last years’ Hero World Challenge, Woods debuted his TaylorMade M2 driver alongside a pair of TaylorMade M1 fairway woods. He also kept to using the same Nike VR Pro irons he’d had in the bag for over a decade.

Tiger also had Nike VR Forged wedges, but raised eyebrows by playing a Bridgestone B330S golf ball; he has since signed a contract to play that company’s balls. He also returned to using his Scotty Cameron for Titleist Newport 2 GSS putter.

When Woods stepped out to play a practice round with Patrick Reed, it was clear he was using mostly irons that looked extremely similar to his old Nike blades, except these golf clubs were stamped TGR on the back and had no manufacturer’s logo. Plus, they look absolutely nothing like any irons TaylorMade currently has in its range.

When Golfweek reached out to TaylorMade for clarification on the golf clubs, the company responded by saying: “Tiger currently plays a TaylorMade M2 driver and M2 / M1 fairways. With Tiger’s return to the game, we have resumed the process of working closely with him on the creation of his TaylorMade irons. We’re excited by his return and look forward to a successful future together.”

From pictures taken at Chappell’s event, Woods opted to go with three TaylorMade Tour Preferred UDI irons in his bag, along with a TaylorMade PSi long iron. On Monday one of the UDIs was still there, but the others, along with the PSi iron, appear to have been removed. Woods has never regularly used a hybrid, but he has used a cavity-back long iron in the past as a driving iron, specifically a Nike VR Forged 2-iron.

On Monday, Woods used his Scotty Cameron putter. It has been fitted with a Ping grip, which he has preferred since his junior golf days.
