Masters winner Garcia set to leave TaylorMade

After 15 years as a TaylorMade player, Masters champion Sergio Garcia will begin the process of looking for new equipment after they “mutually agreed” to end their relationship.

The Spaniard inked his first deal with TaylorMade after the 2002 Ryder Cup and had their clubs in his bag during wins at the 2008 Players Championship and this year’s play-off victory over Justin Rose at Augusta National.

“Today, after a memorable 15 year partnership with Sergio Garcia, we have mutually agreed on a release from the remaining years of his TaylorMade contract,” read TaylorMade’s statement. “It has been an honor to play a role in his performance throughout his career, including The Players Championship, 19 worldwide wins, Ryder Cup heroics and his 2017 Masters win. We congratulate Sergio on a career year and wish him all the best for the future.”

He has recently been spotted with Callaway wedges at the British Masters supported by Sky Sports and tried a Callaway-owned Toulon putter at the Dell Technologies  in September.

Garcia initially moved to TaylorMade from Titleist and it will be interesting to see where he goes to next as he enters the next phase of his career. TaylorMade’s roster still includes Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Jon Rahm and Justin Rose.
