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?

No tape, no solvent: New Golf Pride Concept Helix grip makes installation hassle-free

Published

on

If you have ever wanted to regrip your clubs but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of tape or solvent, Golf Pride has developed a revolutionary system to make regripping easier than ever before with the all-new Golf Pride Concept Helix.

The Concept Helix grip and the simple system used to install it removes the fear factor of installing grips and also brings a new level of accessibility to those that are looking to benefit from the performance advantage of new grips—it also requires zero drying time, meaning you can go from gripping clubs to hitting shots instantly.

To see how it works, check out the video from Golf Pride below.

Golf Pride Concept Helix grip: More details

Golf Pride’s new Concept Helix grip system uses a friction and torque-based installation method that ensures the grips are secure and are installed using a proprietary ‘horn’ device that is included with every order.

“Golf Pride stands at the forefront of innovation in grips, and Concept Helix builds on that legacy as the first-ever twist-on grip technology system. This is the first major new advanced concept to come out of the lab at our new Global Innovation Center in Pinehurst and innovates the installation process, requiring no tape, no solvent, and no drying time. Getting fresh grips on your clubs will be more seamless than ever.”
Greg Cavill – Global Project Engineer / Golf Pride

The other interesting note is that without the need for solvents or tape, the new Concept Helix grips and more environmentally friendly.

“We continue to explore new technologies that benefit golfers, both on and off the course. Concept Helix, in this regard, is this next step in the exploration of best practices for grip installation.”- Brandon Sowell, global director of sales and marketing for Golf Pride
