Rory McIlroy chooses TaylorMade to play full bag of equipment

TaylorMade announced today that four-time major champion and two-time PGA Tour Player of the Year, Rory McIlroy, has chosen to sign a long-term agreement with the golf giants after testing almost every major golf club manufacturer.

McIlroy will play a new full bag, plus TaylorMade golf balls. The signing of the 28-year-old Northern Irishman is yet another decisive move by the company that reaffirms its commitment to fielding the strongest Tour staff in the industry.

McIlroy joins TaylorMade with an impressive CV of accomplishments already under his belt, and puts him in an elite class of golfers and rivals. As one of the most tenacious, performance-driven players the game has ever seen, the 13-time PGA TOUR & 13-time European Tour winner is looking to reclaim his position as the #1 player in the world with an arsenal of new TaylorMade products in the bag, as he embarks on the next stage of his career in pursuit of his fifth major championship.



“My future rests firmly in my hands – that’s why I choose TaylorMade. I've been around the game long enough and have tested most clubs on the market, but I have never been as excited about equipment as I am right now," McIlroy said in a statement shortly after agreeing the deal.

In the summer of 2016, McIlroy stated that he intended to spend a full year playing and testing product from nearly every major manufacturer, but commented at the Barclays that if he came across a product that he liked and was comfortable with, he’d accelerate his decision and consider signing a long-term deal. His decision became clear after experiencing the performance of TaylorMade and realising the noticeable benefits over the equipment he was previously playing.

“It’s incredible when a 4-time major champion who expects nothing but the finest performance from his equipment and golf ball reaches out to your company requesting the opportunity to meet with you. Our tour staff and product teams have been working closely with Rory for months and after extensive testing, we’re elated that he has chosen to join Team TaylorMade as he embarks on the next chapter of his career,” said David Abeles, President & CEO at TaylorMade.
