From Bobby Jones to Gary Player, many players have come and gone. In this article, we will shed light on some of the best golfers present today.
The potential Grand Slam 2017 Champion—Rory McIlroy —is easily one of the best in the game today, He is an Irish golfer who kick-started his career in 2007.
McIlroy has been in stellar form in the past couple of years. In the 2015-16 season, he not only won the FedExCup but also landed two of three titles by the end of the season.
He was originally with Nike, but since the company halted its golf equipment productions, McIlroy has experimented with several drivers.
Currently, you will find a Callaway Epic Sub Zero, Vokey SM6 wedges, and a Titleist Pro V1x ball in his bag. He finished second last year and is currently at the 6th spot overall.
How can one forget about a former number one while talking about top male golfers of the day? Jordan mainly rose to fame with his win in 2015 Masters Tournament.
The US national is also the second youngest in the game to win the Masters.
Jordan uses the infamous Titleist 915D2 along with the NV Blue Aldila 70X shaft. The wedges, putter, and irons in his bag are also from Titleist. Jordan is improving his game.
According to the ranking release after the week 40 of 2017 season, he sits in the 2nd spot.
Another famous male golfer of the time is Jason Day. He is currently the world number one, and of his recent games and form, it is evident that the only thing stopping this Australian golfer from retaining his title is his health.
Joining the game professionally in 2006, he had been prone to back problems.
Jason Day is a little unique with his equipment. He uses the True Temper’s Dynamic Golf X7 shafts. TaylorMade has, however, been his crucial sponsor throughout.
He uses a full TaylorMade kit. Due to his health problems, Jason has currently been dropped to the ninth position, but hopes for him remain high.
Eldrick Tont Woods A.K. A Tiger Woods is arguably the best golfers of all time, and certainly one of the elites in the modern day. The US National player has had a staggering 106 professional wins since his start in 1996.

In his bag, you will find a TaylorMade M2 Driver, Nike Wedges, and a Bridgestone B330S ball among other golfing equipment.
