Rory McIlroy WITB 2024: check out all the new golf clubs in McIlroy's bag

Rory McIlroy relied on his brand new TaylorMade Qi10 woods to enter the record books at the 2024 Dubai Desert Classic

McIlroy, 34, sizzled on the weekend with his new TaylorMade golf clubs as he overcame a 10-shot deficit to run out a one-shot victory at Emirates GC. 

The World No.2 fired a stunning 63 on Saturday to move within two shots of the lead heading into Sunday.

He then carded a solid 70 on a tough final day of scoring to finish the week one shot clear of 2023 DP World Tour Player of the Year Adrian Meronk on 14-under par.

McIlroy earned $1.53m for the win.

McIlroy became the first player in the 35-year history of the Dubai Desert Classic to win it four times (2009, 2015, 2023, 2024).

McIlroy also became the first player to successfully defend the tournament since Stephen Gallacher in 2014. 

The Northern Irishman has now started his 2024 season with a runner-up and victory.

McIlroy was pipped to the post by fellow TaylorMade staffer and European Ryder Cup teammate Tommy Fleetwood at last week's Dubai Invitational.

Which TaylorMade golf clubs is Rory McIlroy using in 2024? 

McIlroy had been using the brand new TaylorMade Qi10 LS Driver at the 2023 DP World Tour Championship. 

But he last week switched into the standard TaylorMade Qi10 Driver, which we were blown away by in our Best Golf Drivers test.

McIlroy remains in a 9-degree model with his customary Fujikura Black 6 X shaft.

TaylorMade Qi10 Driver: Key Features

  • Carbon infinity crown: the new crown covers 97% of the top surface, creating a clean and elegant look
  • Carbon face technology: third generation of 60X Carbon Twist Face, delivering a fast face on centre strikes, while also preserving ball speed on mis-hits.
  • Optimised head shape: contributes significantly to the clubhead’s inertia by allowing mass to be placed further from the centre of the clubhead
  • Advanced construction: strategic mass redistribution, enabling a deep and low Centre of Gravity (CG) for optimal launch and spin control while maintaining high MOI

McIlroy is also using the TaylorMade Qi10 Fairway Woods with a 3-wood in 15 degrees and 5-wood in 18 degrees.

He is using the Fujikura Ventus Black 8X in his 3-wood and a 9X in his 5-wood. 

Elsewhere in McIlroy's bag, he is using a TaylorMade P760 4-iron, and then his favoured TaylorMade 'Rors Proto' irons in 5-9 with Project X 7.0 shafts.

McIlroy also remains with his TaylorMade MG4 wedges in Project X shafts. 

On the greens, McIlroy is using a TaylorMade Spider Tour X putter with a SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol Tour grip.
