I wonder what the impact will be on his game after the equipment switch from Titleist to Nike. Though he mentions the below it must have some effect...thoughts?
Going to give the VR_S Covert a go on demo as soon as I can get my hands on it...
In that sense, McIlroy has the advantage of seeing a track record with the company. He will play the new Nike VR_S Covert driver, the first cavity-backed driver. He will play the 20XI X golf ball, one that has a firm cover and spins less and which he said in testing allowed him to hit the ball better into the wind.
McIlory said he spent considerable time at Nike's testing facility known as "The Oven'' in Fort Worth, Texas. "It's been a relatively easy process,'' said McIlroy, who had used Titleist products since turning pro in 2009.
