Four-time major champion, Rory McIlroy, captures the victory at the RBC Canadian Open

By Sabrina Naccarato

What's in the bag: Rory McIlroy's victory at the RBC Canadian OpenA stacked leaderboard didn’t deter McIlroy heading into Sunday. A round of 61 led him to a seven-shot victory over Shane Lowry and Webb Simpson. His win at Hamilton Golf and Country Club was the Northen Irishman’s first win in Canada.

McIlroy gave 59 a good look with five birdies on the first seven holes. But he had to settle for a nine-under, 61 to lap the entire field. This round hushed a lot of the questions if he could close on a Sunday.

McIlroy is known for being long and accurate off of the tee, and there was no shortage of that at the RBC Canadian. He leads the field in strokes gained off of the tee with an average of 1.220.

McIlroy has both the M5 and M6 fairway woods in his bag. These woods could help your own game due to Speed Injection technology which gives the face of the woods more trampoline effect, optimizing a bigger portion of the face for faster ball speeds on mishits.

The P730 (5-9) and P750 (4) irons helped McIlroy hit lasers into the greens during the RBC Canadian. Having a mixed set of irons is the exact setup that makes him comfortable and having a mixed set of irons might not be a bad idea for you either.

Since McIlroy is so long off of the tee, having a solid short game is essential. Having the MG wedges by his side makes his short game pretty reliable. These wedges would add the precision of a pro to your game too.
