Separately, McIlroy said in a statement: “Over the last several years I have had the chance to work with the best equipment company in golf. Today I am excited to announce TaylorMade clubs and ball will be staying in my bag for many years to come. A combination of the dedicated people and unmatched performance is what drove me to remain a part of Team TaylorMade.”

McIlroy, who celebrated his 32nd birthday on Wednesday, sticks with a star-studded staff that also includes Collin Morikawa, Dustin Johnson and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. Tiger Woods plays Bridgestone balls but joined TaylorMade on an equipment deal the same year McIlroy did.
“Rory is undeniably one of the most captivating players in our game and truly one of the great human beings in the sports world,” David Abeles, TaylorMade Golf CEO and president, said in a statement. “We have been fortunate to get a first-hand look at Rory’s approach to his game and the championship mindset that helps fuel his success.
“Over the past five years, in partnership with Rory, our company has been able to advance product innovation and put the best possible equipment in his bag. Rory’s decision to continue to put his trust in our company has us inspired to push the limits of performance even further.”
