Rory McIlroy appears to be turning his game around following a disappointing, winless season in 2013.

First there was the final-round 67 to finish T2 at the Korea Open. Then came the one-shot victory over Tiger in an exhibition match at Mission Hills in China, followed by an impressive opening-round 65 at the WGC-HSBC Champions that gave him the first-round lead.

So who or what is responsible for Rory's late-season resurgence? While no one can say for sure, two newcomers to his golf bag could have something to do with it.

McIlroy has been using a new Nike prototype VR_S Covert Tour 2.0 driver of late, along with a new yet-to-be released softer Nike RZN golf ball.

Nike is keeping mum on the details of the new longstick and ball until late November, but you can see Rory's Covert 2.0 in the photo above.
