Sergio Garcia What's In The Bag?

What clubs does Ryder Cup legend and 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia use? In the post below we take a look at the equipment in Sergio's bag. Garcia split with TaylorMade in October in 2017 after 15 years with the company before signing with Callaway at the start of January 2018. However he then resigned with TaylorMade in 2021. “I’m very happy to announce that I’m back with my family, with the TaylorMade family that I’ve spent many years with,” Garcia told Golf Monthly. "Even without having a contract with anyone I have been playing mostly TaylorMade equipment this last year and a half so, so yeah it’s exciting and can’t wait to get started."

Sergio Garcia What's In The Bag?

Driver

At the top of the bag he has a TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver (opens in new tab) which is the model players Tiger Woods (opens in new tab)Collin Morikawa (opens in new tab) and Rory McIlroy (opens in new tab) have all put in the bag. We believe Sergio's model is slightly different to others though because Adrian Rietveld, TaylorMade Senior Manager – Tour went into some interesting specifications on Garcia's clubs. "He uses 30g counter balanced weights in the back of his irons and 20g counter balance weights in the back of his woods. So if his clubs were built to a D4 swing weight, once you put these counter balanced weights in the clubs they get to about C7, which is quite extreme in terms of the amount of counter that’s there, which is quite unique to him and considering him being such an amazing ball striker. Only Retief Goosen had a similar spec back in the day but I can’t think of one other player on tour that has that spec."

Fairways

Then, Garcia has put in two TaylorMade Stealth Plus fairway woods (opens in new tab). One of them has 13.5 degrees of loft and the other has 19 degrees. The new model is designed for Tour players and proficient ball-strikers because the overall footprint of the club is quite small, especially when compared with the regular Stealth model. There is no red face here unlike the driver but we thought the re-engineered 80g soleplate was a nice touch and improved turf interaction.

Irons

After playing Callaway's Apex MB's, TaylorMade's P7MB (opens in new tab)'s and a set of Ping Blueprints (opens in new tab), he has now switched back to the TaylorMade P730's. This was an interesting development when we noticed it, given he was also having success with a set of the TaylorMade P750's. The P730's are a muscleback iron designed to give as much feel and control as possible. Only the finest and most consistent ball-strikers should use them which Garcia most definitely is. 

Wedges

He then decides to carry two wedges, both of which are the same model. One is a TaylorMade MG3 (opens in new tab) with 52 degrees of loft, and the other has 58 degrees of loft. Garcia had been playing two Vokey wedges but the MG3 setup has replaced them. 

Putter

Finally his putter has recently changed a few times over the past year. He had been using a TaylorMade TP Bandon 1, as well as a Spider X and Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11.5 (opens in new tab) but right now he has a Spider GT in the bag. Those designs are all mallets so clearly Garcia likes to have a bit more forgiveness when putting. 

Ball

Key to re-signing with the brand is the golf ball, and after using the TP5x (opens in new tab) for a while, he appears to have switched to the TP5. (opens in new tab) He has the number 85 stamped on it and it was a big factor why he resigned with the brand. “Ball is the most important thing,” said Garcia at the time. “Obviously, the woods are massive, but the ball is the most important part of the equipment that can help or hurt you, depending on if you’re playing the right or wrong ball. It was definitely a big part of [my decision to sign]. Since 2006, I’ve been very happy with the TaylorMade ball and all the work they’ve done.”

Apparel/Shoes

Finally Garcia wears adidas apparel and shoes. He has done so for most of his career and in 2021 he transitioned from being a Tour360 wearer, to the adidas ZG21 (opens in new tab). One of the best golf shoes (opens in new tab) on the market, they are lightweight, comfortable, and give top-notch grip and stability. Additionally they come in lots of different colors as well as a BOA option.
