Woods playing with almost entirely new bag at Hero


WINDERMERE, Fla. – Not only did Tiger Woods arrive at this week’s Hero World Challenge with a new “swing consultant,” but almost an entirely new bag.

Woods, who announced last week he had started working with Dallas-based Chris Como, will play the new Nike Golf Vapor Speed prototype driver, Vapor Speed 3- and 5-woods, Vapor Pro blade irons and has been experimenting with the company’s RZN Black golf ball.

Only his putter, Nike’s Method model, is the same club that was in his bag the last time he played at the PGA Championship in August.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy switched to the Vapor Speed driver at the Ryder Cup in September and put the Vapor Pro irons in play the next week at the Dunhill Links Championship.
