Already clinching his fifth Race to Dubai title, the four-time Major champion aims for a second Dubai win this year with his new club. “It’s just a new driver that I have been playing around with," -Rory McIlroy revealed.
While focusing on victory, he sees this tournament as a chance to test his new gear. Rory McIlroy tries to be optimistic and believes that such changes can really make a difference and help him achieve his goal. “You might see a new driver in my bag this week,” he hinted.
The TaylorMade Qi10 LS, recently approved by the USGA, sports varied lofts and features, including a unique white strip aiding alignment. Expected to replace the highly-rated Stealth 2 series, more details on the new driver will likely emerge in January, the typical launch time for major golf brands.
Until then, we have to be patient.
Rory McIlroy and big stars
Returning post-Ryder Cup, where he played a crucial role in Team Europe's win, McIlroy is revered for his driving prowess, ranking 2nd in the PGA Tour's Strokes Gained: Off the Tee and leading in driving distance.
Among the competitive field this week are golf stars like Viktor Hovland, Tyrrell Hatton, Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood, Matt Fitzpatrick and Shane Lowry. We always expect big things from Rory McIlroy, so this time too. The Northern Irishman is considered by many to be the best golfer at the moment, but at certain moments it really seems that he lacks luck.
