Sergio Garcia has split from manufacturer Callaway after two years, citing that the partnership wasn’t working for both parties.
Garcia joined Callaway in 2018 after 15 years with TaylorMade. But the relationship lasted only two seasons before the mutual split was revealed by the Spaniard ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship
Garcia, the 2017 US Masters champion at Augusta, was spotted using Ping Blueprint irons and Ping Glide 3.0 wedges during the practice rounds in the Middle East.
It looks like to be a mixed bag for free agent Garcia with TaylorMade SIM woods also present among his bag as well as the Ping G410 driver and a Ping Anser putter.
“Unfortunately our relationship with Callaway didn’t go any farther,” Garcia said. “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.
“There’s things that happen, and obviously many of the things that Callaway wanted me to do, I couldn’t agree to them. Unfortunately we thought the best thing to do was to go our separate ways. It’s all good, there’s no hard feelings by any side, and these things happen.
“At the end of the day, what I want to do is go out there and enjoy what I do, try to do 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.”
