McIlroy joined up with the brand in 2017 after Nike stopped make golf hardware.

Now he forms part of an elite team of equipment staffers representing the brand that includes Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa, Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood to name a few.  

Since playing with TaylorMade equipment, McIlroy has won seven PGA Tour titles, a FedEx Cup and a Ryder Cup victory. 

McIlroy, a 20-time PGA Tour winner, said: "Over the last several years I have had the chance to work with the best equipment company in golf.

"Today I am excited to announce TaylorMade clubs and ball will be staying in my bag for many years to come.

"A combination of the dedicated people and unmatched performance is what drove me to remain a part of Team TaylorMade."

McIlroy will continue to use the TP5x golf ball. He said he switched over to that ball before the Masters because it was less spinny and easier to control.
