Sergio Garcia officially signs with Callaway, will play 14 Callaway clubs

Published

on

In what could be described as the most predictable news of all time, Callaway announced today that it has officially signed Sergio Garcia to its staff. According to the announcement, the 2017 Masters Champion will “immediately” be playing 14 Callaway clubs and a Chrome Soft X golf ball; he’s slotted to make his first start of 2018 in Dubai in late January. Garcia has also signed a multi-year deal to play adidas Golf footwear and apparel.

“I’m really excited to switch to Callaway,” said Garcia, according to a Callaway press release. “After testing different brands I realized Callaway’s technology and innovation will help me maximize my game and perform to the best of my ability.”

The 37-year-old Garcia, who was previously with TaylorMade for 15 years, was spotted playing numerous Callaway clubs in late 2017. We’ve spotted him using an Epic driver, Apex MB irons, Mack Daddy 3 wedges and Toulon putters in his most recent competitive appearances, which is why this news comes as no shock. Apparently, Garcia has picked up distance due to the driver switch, as well.

“The launch monitor doesn’t lie,” said Tim Reed, SVP, Global Sports Marketing, Callaway Golf. “Jailbreak driver technology has upped his distance off the tee.”

Throughout his career, Garcia has racked up 32 worldwide wins, including 10 PGA Tour wins. Most notably, he won the 2017 Masters after a long career being named as “the best golfer without a major.” He’s also won the 2008 Players Championship, and has a career Ryder Cup record of 19-11-7; by all means, he’s been a nightmare for the United States Ryder Cup teams since 1999.

We look forward to bringing you Garcia’s 2018 Callaway WITB when he makes his first appearance on U.S. soil in the new year.

    Just another bit that the arrows are irrelevant and that everyday golfers should spend a LOT less on equipment and just go out and enjoy playing golf – but they won’t … such are the lambs of marketing

    Why has the latest Tursky equipment article, namely:
    “That one time Dustin Johnson got super protective over his M3 weight setup”
    … cancelled the Comments section?
    The M3 with the controversial TWIST FACE on the M3 driver is possibly one of the most groundbreaking design innovation in driver technology.
    As for Dustin’s M3 weight setup shown in the picture, it appears he wants the weights shifted closest to the clubface thus bringing the driver CG well forward. Recreational golfers will want to have the CG pulled back for more gear effect.
    Now the gear effect is being optimized with the Twist Face.
    Why nas WRX eliminated a comments section on this article and others?

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Toulon Putter

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.

Member KC_Badger – TP Mills Custom

There is something about TP Mills putters that just screams classic, timeless, masterpiece. This example is no exception with its flow next and unique finish.
