I think the equipment change also is hurting his game. People that say clubs are clubs dont have a clue. Nike clubs (which I was using) are the hardest clubs to get adjusted to. They are absolutely unforgiving and the sweet spot is quite small.
With that said I do believe I do believe the toothache, his swing, new clubs if not something else has weighed on him mentally.
the nike money is nice, but if rory had the choice, he'd be using his good ole titleist set of clubs
Yep. If he went from Titleist to Taylormade or Cobra etc the transition wouldnt have been so daunting. The thing that most people dont know about the Nike Clubs that they dont have "SPECIAL PRO Clubs" the only things different between store brand and pro sets are the fitted bends and shafts. I think he should be able to handle the Covert even though its very different than the 910/913.
I feel sorry for Rory I wish he would have stayed with Titleist.
