Taylormade, Garcia End Relationship

TaylorMade has announced a “mutually agreed on” parting of the ways with reigning Masters champ Sergio Garcia.

As noted by ESPN’s Darrell Rovell, “Adidas’ recent $425 million sale of the business to a private equity firm made it less important for Garcia” to continue the 15-year relationship with Taylormade and Adidas.

“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 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,” the Taylormade statement said.

TaylorMade’s stable still includes World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, along with three former No. 1s in Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. It also has contracts with global superstars Justin Rose and Jon Rahm.

Golf Monthly is dropping hints that Garcia could be switching to Callaway.
