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?

Golf Avenue “Find of the Day” – Tour Edge Exotics CB Pro Limited 4-wood

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we have partnered with Golf Avenue to offer our readers additional value on trade-ins, as well as discounts on used clubs, because if there is anything golf gear heads love, it’s tinkering and testing—both new and old equipment.

Golf Avenue is one of the largest online retailers for used clubs, and with that, there are lots of great deals, and fun clubs to be found, and since we like gear just as much as you—we’re doing some digging for you.

Golf Avenue Find of the Day: Exotics CB Pro Limited 4-wood

A key feature of the Tour Edge Exotics CB Pro is the combo-brazed beta titanium cup face, which creates a CT (a measure of a club’s spring-like effect) that reaches the USGA-allowed maximum of 250.

It also has a “Tour Slip” sole to reduce turf interaction and help it get through the toughest of lies.

The CB Pro also has a deep clubface and a smaller profile to make it lower spinning and more workable—a design element common in “tour” style fairway woods.

This limited-edition model was originally priced at a whopping $499 MSRP, and considering you can now get this titanium-faced fairway for just over $100, this a great candidate for the “Find of the Day”.

You can find this club for purchase now at Golf Avenue: TE Exotics CB Pro Fairway Wood.

Published

Uther has introduced its iconic golf ball collection which includes both three-piece and two-piece constructions.

The nine iconic golf balls are designed to resonate with golfers of various skill levels and feature dual icons on the top and bottom of the balls which are designed to provide an easier visual to see how much your golf ball spins in the air, especially on chip shots.

Speaking on the new additions, Dan Erdman, Founder of Uther, said

“I noticed a need for golf balls to be unique as all current golf balls lack personality. With our debut iconic golf ball collection, Uther golf balls provide another visual form of expression with playful icons.”

The golf balls have been in development for more than nine months, and per the company ensure precise consistency and soft feel with long distance.

The Uther iconic golf ball collection is available to purchase now at Uthersuuply.com with prices ranging from $30-$40 per dozen.
