In what is arguably the most shocking equipment change of 2020 so far, Sergio Garcia has a full set of new clubs just two years after signing to Callaway. Here's what we know
It’s the time of year where it’s almost impossible to keep up with players changing their gear, but no one expected Sergio Garcia to be rocking up in Abu Dhabi with new clubs.
Just two years after leaving TaylorMade for Callaway, Garcia has been spotted at a photoshoot ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship with a mixture of clubs in his bag.
Callaway have since confirmed they have parted ways with the 2017 Masters champion who had this to say:
“Unfortunately our relationship with Callaway didn’t go any farther. So at the moment, I’m a free agent. So I’m playing whatever I feel that – feels best for me or fits me best. That’s where we are and that’s what I’ve been working on this Christmas break.
“It’s all good. There’s no hard feelings by any side, and these things happen. You know, at the end of the day, what I want to do is go out there and enjoy what I do, try to do it to the best of my ability, and they are also trying to get the best equipment they can get. Unfortunately just it wasn’t the fit that we thought it would be for me, and you know, we just move on from there.”
This means that Garcia won’t be using the new Mavrik range for 2020…
So what’s in Sergio’s bag?
I’ve put the feelers out around the industry and people are keeping tight-lipped at the moment, but what I do know is it looks like he will make his 2020 debut with a mixed set of clubs in the bag, starting with the Ping G410 driver and the TaylorMade SIM fairway woods in 3 and 5 at the top of the bag.
He is then carrying the Ping Blueprint irons from 3-iron down to pitching wedge as well as two Ping Glide 3.0 wedges.
Finally he rounds out his bag with a Ping PLD Anser putter and the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. He remains an Adidas ambassador.
