Sergio Garcia What’s in the Bag

Updated for the PGA Championship
Sergio Garcia is one of golf’s greatest heroes. Seemingly cursed with an inability to close out his first ever major tournament win, Garcia has consistently placed highly at big events but never quite had the right amounts of consistency and luck to earn his place among the champions. Still, he remains one of the sport’s highest earners and has still won plenty of events on both the PGA and European tours.

In 2017, he picked up the AT&T Byron Nelson title for the second time in his career, as well as earning T5 placements at both the U.S. Open and The Open. Even without that elusive first major, Garcia is still quite clearly one of golf’s finest players and has accumulated a lot of experience across his career so far. During that time, the Spaniard has tested out countless clubs in order to find the perfect bag to suit his swing.

Here, we’ll be taking an in-depth look into that bag and offering a brief review and analysis of Garcia’s clubs.

Driver: TaylorMade M2 at 9.5 degrees

Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi XTS 80X
sergio-garcia-driverGarcia’s bag is 100% TaylorMade and he starts things off with the M2 driver. A highly popular driver with both pros and amateurs alike, the M2 is one of the finest clubs we’ve ever held in our hands. Distance and forgiveness are the two key factors built into this club’s design. With a multi-material combination of titanium and carbon composite, this club boasts of high MOI, Speed Pocket Technology and an extremely low center of gravity. With these features, the M2 is able to offer massive launches, lightning-fast ball speeds and low amounts of spin. Not only that, but it can also guarantee exceedingly satisfying levels of forgiveness. Tests have shown that average players can see very positive results by switching to this club, so we encourage you to give it a try.

3 Wood: TaylorMade M1 at 15 degrees

Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver XTS TiNi 80X
A highly adjustable fairway wood, the M1 is a multi-material club that comes fitted with TaylorMade’s popular Front Track System, allowing you to slide around a pair of weights to create the ideal setup for your swing. Additional draw or fade can be created by moving these weights around and the M1 is able to adapt perfectly to a huge range of golfers.

5 Wood: TaylorMade M1 at 19 degrees

Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver XTS TiNi 80X
As stated above, the M1 fairway woods offer remarkable levels of control and flexibility. This club can be made to work for you and has been designed to offer the best results, time and time again.

Irons: TaylorMade PSi Tour (3-PW)

Shaft: Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 130X
sergio-garcia-ironsWhat we really like about the TaylorMade PSi Tour set is the Dynamic Feel System technology contained within each club. This tech helps to lower the vibration levels, providing higher rates of stability and a truly pleasing feel to the player. Created with 1025 forged carbon steel, these clubs are both attractive and effective. Additional technologies like the Speed Pocket help to provide big distances, even on off-center hits.

Wedges: TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF Tour Grind (52-09, 58-12)

Shaft: Nippon N.S. Pro Modus Tour 130X
Created with electroformed nickel cobalt, these Tour Preferred EF Tour Grind wedges are strong and thoroughly efficient. We can’t speak for every player, but the vast majority of golfers should witness much more accurate and consistent chips when switching to these clubs. Aimed at high skilled players, the EF wedges bring high amounts of spin and a truly eye-catching aesthetic.

Putter: TaylorMade Monte Carlo Prototype

Garcia really made this putter work for him during his victory at this year’s AT&T Byron Nelson. It’s a well-made club that transfers a lot of energy and seems to help the ball roll effortlessly along the green.

Golf Ball: TaylorMade Tour Preferred X (#49)

Finally, Garcia goes with the TaylorMade Tour Preferred X balls to complete his bag. These 5-piece balls provide additional distance and less spin when compared to the regular Tour Preferred range.
