Two weeks after his impressive victory at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play held at Harding Park in San Francisco, Rory McIlroy shredded the course (and field) at the PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship. Per the write-up in GolfWeek:
McIlroy, flashing pure brilliance from start to finish and a breathtaking driving game, recorded a resounding victory at one of his favorite stomping grounds, the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. The only things preventing this seven-stroke romp over Patrick Rodgers and Webb Simpson from being his most dominating victory are his two eight-stroke triumphs, at the 2011 U.S. Open and 2012 PGA.
Curious, we did a WITB comparison and discovered there weren’t any changes.
With this victory, Rory now has 1428 FedExCup points for the season which puts him in third.
Worth noting are the mysteriously named, Project X shafts. Known for incorporating Stepless Design Technology where each individual shaft throughout the set is comprised of a specific taper length, Project X’s unique design feature optimizes the flex distribution and energy transfer without sacrificing control.
The company says the Stepless Design Technology provides tip stiffness for stronger players, producing greater accuracy with a smooth yet solid feel at impact and optimum trajectory and spin control.
These shafts, In the hands of a champion like McIlroy, definitely show well.
