McIlroy unconcerned about new clubs

6:08 am on 21 November 2012

Rory McIlroy has no fears that ditching the Titleist equipment that has taken him to number one in world golf will have a detrimental effect on his game.

McIlroy's switch to Nike clubs next season, a deal estimated to be worth $300 million over 10 years, has been the subject of much debate with England's six-times major winner Nick Faldo among those questioning his decision.

The 23 year old Northern Irishman will play one last event with his old clubs, at the European Tour's 10-million dollar season finale starting tomorrow in Dubai.
