Sergio Garcia has rejoined TaylorMade’s Tour staff following a three-year stint as a member of Callaway’s tour team.
The 41-year-old Spaniard, who is currently ranked 46th in the world, previously spent 15 years as a member of TaylorMade’s tour team between 2003 and 2018, and is rejoining the company that helped propel him to many of his most significant accomplishments, including winning the 2008 Players Championship and 2017 Masters.
David Abeles, CEO of TaylorMade Golf, said: The opportunity to reunite with Sergio is one we couldn’t let pass by. Over the course of nearly two decades, we’ve built a deep connection and familiarity. He understands the history of our brand, the performance of our products and who we are as a people. We truly welcome his return to Team TaylorMade.
The bond between Garcia and TaylorMade goes well beyond a logo on a hat. He was integral to the brand’s development of a premium performance golf ball, as his feedback helped shape the Tour Preferred franchise. At the 2006 Masters, Garcia became the first Tour professional to play the TP Red in competition. Coming full circle, he was also one of the first players to tee up the all-new 2021 TP5x golf ball at the professional level – choosing to do so as an un-contracted player.
Garcia, whose most recent victory came at the PGA Tour’s Sanderson Farms Championship in October 2020, said: “Some of my fondest on-course memories have come with a TaylorMade club in my hands and a TaylorMade golf ball on the tee. I am excited about the future, especially with the Olympics and Ryder Cup on the horizon, and I know that TaylorMade will help me achieve the absolute best possible results.
“I’ve always been comfortable with their team, their approach to the game and their equipment, especially their golf ball. I couldn’t be more excited to rejoin a group I consider family.
Starting at this week’s PGA Championship at Kiawah Island, Garcia will play TaylorMade woods and irons and the company’s TP5X ball. He will also wear a TaylorMade glove and carry a TaylorMade golf bag starting at this week’s PGA Championship at Kiawah Island.
