Final Score

Rory: 53, Tiger 47

Conclusion

Despite being shared over many categories, the stats do throw up an alarming fact. Equipment matters everywhere. If you consider that Tiger generates 0.73 mph more clubhead speed than Rory, yet Rory achieves 0.38 mph more ball speed than Tiger and drives on average 12.7 yards further, it all points to the difference in equipment both men were using.

Off the tee, the difference in spin rates, the height both men drive the ball and the fact that Tiger actually carried the ball through the air longer than Rory this year would suggest a highly likely tapering back of Rory’s distance stats with his new Nike equipment. Unless that is, that Nike can bridge the technology and performance gap to Titleist by the start of next season.

On the green, from 5 to 20 feet Rory clearly has the upper hand. His birdie conversion rate is the best on Tour, especially on par 5’s. It seems unthinkable that he would not bring his Scotty Cameron putter with him into his Nike bag.
