What's in Sergio's Bag?

After taking second in the world at the HSBC Champions on Monday, Sergio Garcia may be able to attribute part of his success to some of his equipment changes. Sergio recently switched up his driver from TaylorMade's Tour Burner to TaylorMade’s r7 Limited (9.5°). The new r7 has features adjustable weight ports allowing for changes in trajectory up to a 35 feet left-to-right or right-to-left. The head on the r7 Limited driver also has a much more triangular look than its previous model (r7 SuperQuad). The Tour Burner that Sergio used to play with did not feature the adjustable weight ports.

Prior to Sergio’s win at the Players Championship back in May, he opted for his throwback Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter that he used back in 1999, instead of the TaylorMade Rossa Daytona that he usually plays with. Once again one of the most significant changes Sergio Garcia made to his golf bag for the HSBC Champions was his putter. However, this time around Sergio decided to take his TaylorMade Rossa Daytona putter and make a few changes himself. After grinding and forming the putter to his liking, Sergio sent it back to TaylorMade and had them make his custom creation in silver! Now wouldn’t that be nice if everyone could do that!

Sergio also changed up his irons for this event. He switched from TaylorMade's rac MB TP irons to the new Tour Preferred irons. The RAC irons have more of a traditional look and feel to them and allow for exceptional vibration control and feedback on each and every shot. The Tour preferred irons, also by TaylorMade, are geared more towards those players with a lower handicap, perfect for Sergio. These irons still feature the same vibration control as the previous RAC model but these irons have a much sleeker design which helps golfers hit the ball with greater ease and control.
