It took a little bit, but Rory McIlroy seems to have found the right driver-shaft combination. At the Wells Fargo Championship, McIlroy used his Nike Vapor Pro with a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board S+ 70 TX shaft to lead the field in driving distance with an eye-catching 321.1 yards.
Last year the Wells Fargo champ told GolfDigest.com that he is very visual when it comes to his driver. "It has to look a certain way," McIlroy said. "You have to be very comfortable when you're looking down at a club because if you're not you're never going to hit a good shot. The look is the first thing."
