A month or so ago we mentioned that Sergio Garcia was playing callaway clubs and looked set to sign with the brand. Well, now it’s finally official! After using the clubs for sometime, it was pretty obvious that Sergio was going to sign, it was just a matter of when; that when, is now. Garcia previously stated: “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.” Clearly it felt good. According to a statement by Callaway, the 2017 Masters Champion will “immediately” be playing 14 Callaway clubs and a Chrome Soft X golf ball. Garcia himself stated: “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.”
According to Tim Reed from Callaway, the switch to Callaway after a 15 year relationship with TaylorMade ended, has been beneficial off the tee for Garcia, stating: “Jailbreak driver technology has upped his distance off the tee.” Good signs for Callaway and the 37-year-old Spaniard.
I’m excited to see how Garcia performs with his new gear as he is expected to make his first start for the new year in Dubai in late January.
