Sergio Garcia is playing Callaway equipment, but he’s not a staffer (yet)

Published

on

As we reported last month, Sergio Garcia and TaylorMade ended their 15-year relationship. And as the GolfWRX forums have been speculating, Garcia will play Callaway equipment at the DP World Tour Championship this week.

However, as ESPN reports, Garcia and Callaway are yet to reach an agreement — and it doesn’t seem that an arrangement is imminent. All Garcia was willing to concede was Callaway’s leader-of-the-pack status.

“At the moment it’s the company that’s in front of the other ones,” Garcia said. “What we’ve been testing, the numbers have been really good with the balls that Callaway has brought to me. Now it’s just a matter of trying it on the golf course and trying it in tournament play, and seeing how it reacts and seeing how it feels.”

The decision to test the potential clubs he’s signing on to play in competition is a wise one, certainly.

Garcia’s remarks about parting ways with TMag, however, were a bit curious.

“It wasn’t only my decision,” Garcia said. “I spent 15 years with TaylorMade but unfortunately things come to an end. All companies change and the politics with TaylorMade have changed after leaving Adidas. We couldn’t come to an agreement. I understand that it’s also difficult when you have so many top players, to keep all of them. Unfortunately we were in that package.”

Politics? Package? What exactly went down? We’d have to assume Garcia was trying to leverage his major victory and strong season for a bigger piece of the sponsorship dollar pie. His remarks seem to suggest, however, TMag wasn’t willing to give him as much pie as he was asking for.

We’ll get you Garcia’s full Callaway WITB as soon as we have it.

The Match 3: Mickelson/Barkley vs Curry/Manning – Full Viewer’s Guide

Published

on

Capital One’s The Match: Champion’s for Change gets underway with this week, with two new additions joining the third edition of the contest. Phil Mickelson will team up with Charles Barkley, while Peyton Manning will return and this time pair up with current NBA star Steph Curry.

Ahead of the event, here’s a rundown of all the essential details you need to know about the contest

The Format

The format for The Match 3 is 18 holes of modified alternate shot. 

In this format, both players from each team will hit tee shots, and then swap balls for their approach shots (e.g. Mickelson will hit Barkley’s second shot and vice versa). Following the second shot, the teams will decide between which ball they want to play for their third.

How good are Barkley, Manning and Curry at golf?

We saw Peyton Manning perform well in The Match 2, and the former NFL quarterback plays off a 6.4 handicap index.

Having played on the formerly known Web.com Tour, Steph Curry is a very proficient golfer and plays off a 0.1 handicap index.

Charles Barkley’s handicap index is unknown, and his swing used to be a source of ridicule. However, Barkley has transformed his swing in recent years, and you can check out this small sample of his game from when he played the ‘Bogey or Better’ challenge at the 18th hole during the broadcast of The Match 2.

Location and Date

The event takes place Friday, Nov. 27 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.

Who will the event benefit?

The Match: Champion’s for Change will raise funds for historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

How to Watch

The event will be broadcast live on TNT this Friday, Nov. 27, from 3 PM ET. In addition, Bleacher Report will provide a “Cart Cam” stream – leading up to and during the event.

The Coverage

TNT’s live coverage of Capital One’s The Match will be hosted by Brian Anderson, who will provide play-by-play alongside Trevor Immelman and Andre Iguodala. Cheyenne Woods and Gary McCord will feature as on-course announcers for the event, while Eli Manning will be part of a pre-game show as well as “Cart Came” alongside LPGA legend Michelle Wie.
