We finally have an indication about which clubs Tiger will use.
We now have some closure after growing speculation about which equipment the 14-time major winner will use.
Looks like Rory’s not the only one switching out his Nike woods and going for some TaylorMadespic.twitter.com/EbVxUtNo6W

Tiger was seen using TaylorMade fairway woods. Golf Digest pointed out that this isn’t the first time Tiger has tinkered with their equipment.
He used a TaylorMade driver as an amateur, and even when he was all-in with Nike as a pro, he subbed in a TaylorMade R510 driver for the final round of the 2003 Deutsche Bank Open in Germany.
“That was just an experiment,” Woods said at the time. ”I just wanted to mix it up a little bit. It’s not like I haven’t tried anything before at home; I’ve tried all the different brands. I just wanted to try one in competition.”
What can we take from this? It’s quite clear that the world’s best players see TaylorMade drivers as the absolute premium. Rory McIlroy was also seen using them, adding himself to a list that includes Dustin Johnson and Jason Day. I want one! Shame they cost the earth.
G.O.A.T will be making his long awaited comeback at the Hero World Challenge.
