What's In My Bag? Rory McIlroy

playing in america
Events here go above and beyond looking after the players. And the courses are set up so well. Week to week, the greens are the same speed. In Europe you're going from country to country all the time, and you have to keep adjusting the loft on your putter. I feel the American public has taken to me, and I enjoy playing in front of them.

Driver Issues
My first time behind the wheel here was at the WGC Match Play near Tucson. It was weird not knowing how much room I had on the right side of the car, but now I'm pretty comfortable.
Love Life
I've been dating my girlfriend, Holly Sweeney, for four years. I miss her when I'm on the road, so it's nice when she and my mum and dad can make it out to tournaments. She's going to college next year.
Favorite Distance
I like 135 yards. I'm not between clubs, and I can just smash a wedge. I'm usually pretty good with that one.
Dog lover
I keep this headcover of a Saint Bernard on my 3-wood. I have a Labradoodle at home. There's a resemblance between the two.
high numbers
I play the Titleist Pro V1x, always 5s, 6s, 7s or 8s to have less chance of confusing my ball with someone else's. I stripe it to line up putts.
