Rory McIlroy's one-shot victory over Adam Scott at the Emirates Australian Open at Royal Sydney GC yesterday put an end to his prolonged winless stretch and denied the popular Australian, the winner of his homeland's Masters and the PGA in recent weeks, the Down Under Triple Crown. Scott, who held a four shot lead over McIlroy after 54 holes, led by one on the final tee. After both found the fairway with iron shots, Scott missed the green long, and McIlroy knocked his approach to 18 feet. After Scott pitched long and two putted for bogey, the Northern Irishman made his birdie to win outright. Here's a look at the clubs Rory McIlroy used to win the Australian Open:

Driver: Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Tour, 8.5 degrees

3-wood: Nike VRS Covert Tour, 15 degrees

5-wood: Nike VR Pro, 19 degrees

Irons (3-9): Nike VR Pro Blade
