Tiger's New Sticks

Just a heads-up for curious Tiger watchers today. Tiger tweeted a photo of his new bag full of clubs. I'm posting a copy of the photo that Rex Hoggard included in his GC post, just in case my attempt to embed Tiger's tweet doesn't show the large photo he tweeted.

Tiger's new clubs

The interesting thing to me is how many changes he's made since the Tour Championship win. He's changed his driver, 3-wood, 5-wood and apparently has a new set of prototype irons as well. (he kept his Scotty Cameron putter.)
While I don't claim to understand all the differences in the various Taylormade woods, my brief research indicates that, at the very least, the odd-numbered M woods Tiger is using are the adjustable models. That would allow Tiger to tweak his woods from day to day as he gets more reps with them. The Taylormade article I checked says:
Choose M5 driver... if you like to tinker with your driver settings or need lower spin. M5 driver offers a lot of freedom in terms of personalizing launch conditions and performance—you can set the driver weights forward for low spin or all way back and to the perimeter for max forgiveness (and everything in between). As mentioned above, this can be particularly useful if you are in the midst of a swing change. On a daily basis, you could also make subtle Inverted T-Track modifications on the range before you tee off, based on how you're swinging it that day.
Should be fun to see how the new sticks perform at Torrey this week.
