Does he put a new 910 3 wood in his bag ?

Why does he stay with the 906's ?

Bob,

He hasn't wanted to get rid of the 906, because he likes the looks.  He likes the 910, but doesn't mess around with his 3 wood often.

Cameron what kind of shaft is he using in his driver? And I still have the 906 3 wood in my bag. I still hit it longer than anything else I have tried.

There are a few players still gaming the 906.  Jesper Parnevik is one.

Ben,

He is using the Rombax 7V05.

Cameron, has Rory made a change to his 3 wood since this thread was last updated?  When watching Rors on TV, it sure looks like one of his woods, has a headcover with 910f on it, if not 910fD.  Is Rory now carrying the 910 fairway driver?  If yes, what loft?  I'm guessing that he's carrying the 13.5 degree, given how long he's nailing it.  Didn't he put that in his bag right before the Accenture match play?  Just curious, thanks for any update.

Kelly, 

He is still playing the 906 F2, just has a more updated head cover.  :)

If I hit a 3W further than Ricky and D.A.'s driver,...I wouldn't change a thing.

Ha if I was Rory I would just stick with the 906f, especially after watching him kill a 3 wood 320+ yards. That was unbelievable.

I still have the 906 f2 3 wood. I had the 909 f2 and didn't hit it as well and I've tried the 910 and while I like it, I like the 906 better.

Is Rory still using that Fujikura Z-com shaft in his  Woods?  If so, what type of launch are  the shafts?  High, Medium, or Low ball flight?

If you guys ever get a chance to go to a pro golf tournament it will be interesting to learn there are several pros who play older clubs or even other brands that don't match the headcovers.

True.  So true.  But then you have to wonder some of these guys can hit anything.  I still am amazed at the guys hitting a 7 iron on a 200yd par 3.

I still game a 906F with a Proto NV.  Can't find a better model.  The 910's are just as good, but not better in my opinion.

Yea that stuff is crazy huh!

If I may be so bold to suggest, it's generally us amateurs who get caught up in the "newest" thing released.  I have noticed most seasoned players generally don't change their equipment much and typically rely more on what works best oppose to keeping up with the latest release or trend.  

My setup is built with a 10-year life cycle in mind.  I don't foresee replacing any of my clubs within the next 10-years (excluding my wedges).  Though, I might add the new driver in 8.5* flavor depending on how I hit it and if the feel is like the 910 D3 I currently use.  Oh, and if I can find a good deal, I may entertain the idea of purchasing a set of 710 MBs for the purpose of bettering my ball striking.

I read on Golf Magazine on the what's in the bag article they had Rory; and I was obviously wondering the same thing as you. Although he has all 910 headcovers, he still likes the 906 fairway woods because he likes the fact that they're completely neutral (as opposed to the standard 0.5 degree open setting) and he has more confidence in being able to fade and draw the ball on command with them and he's had them ever since he turned pro. And like you guys have said, when you hit a 3 wood past most guys drivers, why not keep the same 3 wood?
