His contract was expiring at the end of the year, but seems like they agreed to let him out early.  he has been experimenting with various callaway clubs over the last few tournaments.

This is from Bunkered in the UK. Interesting that it's right on the heels of KPS officially taking ownership of TaylorMade...

 

 

Sergio Garcia will soon be wielding a new set of golf clubs after it was announced today that he has split from TaylorMade after 15 years together.

 

The news comes just days after Adidas completed the divestiture of TaylorMade, Adams Golf and Ashworth to a newly-formed affiliate of KPS Capital Partners.

Whilst no official announcement has yet been made, it would appear as though Garcia's next move will likely be to Callaway. He was spotted using Callaway wedges at the British Masters just under two weeks ago, and was seen using a putter made by the Callaway-owned Toulon Golf during the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston last month. 

A statement from TaylorMade said: "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.

"It has been an honour 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."

Will be really interesting to see where he goes. Wasn't he a Titleist guy as an amateur?

 

 

Edit: Oops. Took me too long to hit send and just saw all the Callaway news. I see that as a huge win for the Callaway team. They'll need someone to carry the torch as Phil starts to fade out of the championship picture.

National Club Golfer says Sergio's contract was with the entity known as TaylorMade Adidas Golf, and not just TaylorMade Golf, which makes the decision to let Sergio out of the last year of his contract understandable.  

 

NCG also says Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose have similar deals, so it'll be interesting to see what happens there...

 

Jason Day was in that group, but he signed an apparel deal with Nike last year and a separate equipment deal with TaylorMade.
