UPDATE: It has been confirmed this is an M2 driver that Rory is using this week.


Well, it looks like Rory is trying out the latest TaylorMade Driver, the M1, in Shanghai this week. There were a handful of videos from practice rounds of him hitting it. Some may think this is the M2 but it is actually the M1 driver. Let’s see if he sticks with it. We have heard Rory has picked up 6 mph of ball speed with the new TaylorMade driver.

Here is another video from Instagram of Rory McIlroy on the range hitting the TaylorMade M1 driver:

Once it has been confirmed that Rory has signed with TaylorMade we will do our best to update it here. We will also try to watch quite a bit of the HSBC Championship which will give us some ideas as to the clubs Rory is playing.
