McIlroy: "My favorite club in the bag is actually the one I practice with the most when I'm on the range, which is my (Nike VR Pro Blade) 6-iron. It's my go-to club when I'm working on something in particular because it's right there between a long iron and a short iron. For me, I can hit a bunch of different shots with it, and over the years, it's really served me well on the range and the course.
"I've actually become pretty accurate on approach shots from 175-200 yards because I spend so much time practicing with my 6-iron. I'm typically inside the top 5 or close to it every year in the PGA TOUR proximity to the hole stat from 175-200 yards. I started using the VR Pro when I came on board with Nike and really like the look and shape of the iron.
