You gotta hand it to Sergio.  Always willing to put the new products in play (even though he may revert to old favorites at a later stage).  He's the ideal Pin Up Boy for TM

What's the chances he has a less offset version to push the new release?  Basically the same as the TP9 B's

I am sure they will make a few custom sets for someone, but I don't see a B coming out.  The tours have very little offset and look great already.

What shafts is Sergio using there? I thought he was a DG guy but, those look like a satin finish. PX?

Possibly, but rest assured, if they're playing for money, they're going to use what works best for their game.  A royalty check isn't as much as a winning check for 4 days of work.

Sergio is paid well to play whatever TM asks him to play.  What better advertising than Sergio playing the new clubs this week?  I'm sure he's tested them before putting them into play.  The "Race to Dubai" is over so lets do some club testing in a tournament setting.

The announcers said he is coming off of some kind of eye surgery.
May account for some poor shots.
