Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy has revealed that he's been testing out a selection of new clubs since he helped Europe win the Ryder Cup.

The World No 1 is set to join Nike from Titleist at the end of the year in a deal that has been all but confirmed.

Naturally, such a switch would also necessitate a change in equipment, leading some pundits to express concern over the effect it could have on the Northern Irishman's game.

But McIlroy has moved to allay such fears, even letting slip that he's more or less finalised his new set of clubs.

"After the Ryder Cup I started to test a little bit but then I've six or seven weeks to really get into it but I am pretty much set with everything," he said.

"It's just a matter of getting a little more comfortable and playing a few rounds with them and I should be okay."

McIlroy is adamant that changing the equipment that has brought him so much success will not affect his game.

"I'm very confident they will get it spot on and I feel like with the changes I have made in equipment that I have got into using clubs a little easier than other players," he said.

"I've got a set of irons and I've got the woods sorted and it's just a matter of getting the ball dialled in and I will be good.

"But it's the feel of the golf ball I find is the most important thing to get right because all the manufacturers make great equipment these days."
