I have never seen a tour player go through so many company changes so rapidly. Rory Mcilroy turned pro in 2007, and debuted on the PGA Tour in 2008. When he was first on tour he was playing with Titleist, driver to putter (Scotty Cameron). At this point in his career, his putting skills were being compared to the one and only Tiger Woods. With a Scotty Cameron 009, Rory was shaking things up on the PGA Tour. Why would he change a thing?
In 2013, Mcilroy signed a deal with the big swoosh, Nike. This forced him to make drastic equipment changes, which included the Scotty. Although Rory was claiming to have driven the ball very well, he was not putting his best with the Nike Method putters. His career plummeted and he took a serious evaluation of his game.
Then came 2017, and Rory was playing Callaway clubs. With no contract or endorsement deal, Rory voluntarily promoted Callaway’s Epic Series and Odyssey putter. It was around this time he was experimenting with non-bladed putters. The mallets would help his stroke stay online with higher moment of inertia.
What do you think about Rory’s putting situation?
