Driver – TaylorMade SIM2 – 9 Degrees

 

Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 6X

Key Features:

  • Pear shaped head
  • Forged Ring construction
  • Inertia generator

Selling Points:

The head of this driver was designed to be supremely aerodynamic for players to take advantage of faster club head speeds.

And the inertia generator is essentially a 16g weight that is placed way in the back of the club head thanks to a lower “fin” we’ll call it.

Sergio Garcia is playing a 9 degree version of the SIM2 but it is also available in 10.5 degrees of loft.

Pros:

  • Great on low face shots
  • Flexes high at more points on the face
  • Carbon sole helps keep weight down

Cons:

  • No draw bias
  • Low launch angle

Overall Score: 98/100

3 Wood – TaylorMade SIM Rocket – 14 Degrees

Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 7X

Key Features:

  • Heavy steel sole
  • Titanium crown
  • Carbon composite sole

Selling Points:

This fairway wood is all about getting the lowest possible CG as possible.

The head features a combination of a titanium crown, a carbon sole and the heavy, 80g V sole plate that ultimately pulls the head down.

The carbon sole smooths out turf interaction and the titanium crown holds it all together stably.

Pros:

  • Very forgiving
  • Includes a 2 degree adjustable loft sleeve
  • High flex on the face
  • Excellent distance

Cons:

  • Sim Max Is Better For Beginners
  • Sim 2 Is Now Available

Overall Score: 95/100

5 Wood – TaylorMade SIM Rocket – 19 Degrees

Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 7X

Key Features:

  • Titanium face
  • Speed Pocket technology
  • Adjustable loft hosel sleeve

Selling Points:

The Taylormade SIM Rocket 5 wood plays ridiculously hot off the face. But maybe the more intriguing thing about the way it hits is the straight lines it seems to produce. Overall this is a great #5 wood to strategically plan your march down the fairway with.

Pros:

  • High launch angles
  • Available in right or left-handed
  • Shots fly surprisingly straight
  • Excellent Distance
  • Latest Technology

Cons:

  • Sim Max Is Better For Beginners
  • Hard to fault the Sim Clubs

Irons – TaylorMade P750 (3-PW)

Shaft: Nippon NS Pro Modus 3 Tour 130 X

Key Features:

  • Compact Forged Head For Better Players
  • Immediate Feedback On All Iron Strikes
  • Blade Like Look With Minimal Offset

Selling Points

Garcia seems to love clubs with a blade like feel and thin top line for excellent turf interaction, feel and control and that is exactly what you get with the Taylormade P750’s.

Everyone is always looking to see what irons this player who has become known for his prolific iron-play will be using and the 750’s dont disappoint.

The clubs also feature CNC milled faces, groves and in the cavity while the face thickness, CG and weight are all meticulously calculated for optimal perfomance and launch.

Pros:

  • Extremely low center of gravity
  • Deep undercut
  • These irons look great at address
  • Blade like appearance with a cavity back

Cons:

  • Definitely not for beginners or intermediate players
  • They have a very unique feel that takes some warming up to

Overall Score: 93/100

Wedges – Vokey SM8 – 52, 58 Degrees

 

Shaft: Nippon Pro Modus3 Tour 130 X

Key Features:

  • Forward CG
  • Precision grinds
  • Edge-reaching grooves

Selling Points:

This season, Garcia will be using a 58 degree Vokey SM8 lob wedge and an 52 degree SM8 pitching wedge. These are contrasting wedges in terms of their centers of gravity with the PW featuring a very low CG while the lob wedge has a very high one.

But the spin milled grooves of these wedges are really where it’s at. They provide a ridiculous amount of feel and precision and it’s easy to see why so many pros are playing the SM8’s this year.

Pros:

  • Many grind choices
  • Excellent feel
  • Great greenside spin control

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • The progressive CG’s can take some getting used to

Overall Score: 96/100

Putter – TaylorMade Golf Spider X Putter

 

Key Features:

  • True Path alignment
  • 320g steel frame
  • Carbon composite sole

Selling Points:

The straight line alignment marker that runs the length of the topside of this putter really helps you see the line your putt is likely to take.

And the 45 degree angle grooves in the face insert allow you to achieve as much forward spin as you need to sink the putt.

Pros:

  • Copper or navy color options
  • Streamlined shape
  • Great feel
  • Trusted by tour players and weekend warriors alike

Cons:

  • A bit heavy
  • Sound is lacking

Overall Score: 96/100

Key Features:

  • 5 layer composition
  • Tour Flight dimple pattern
  • Progressive firmness

Selling Points:

Taylormade has dialed in the precision as finely as we have seen in a tour grade ball.

The TP5x balls feature a 5-layer design with each layer being slightly firmer than the last for optimal energy conservation and spin control.

Pros:

  • Excellent feel
  • Urethane cover feels soft
  • Great ball speed

Cons:

  • Not for slower swing speeds
  • Don’t hold their line well for a ball at this price

Overall Score: 95/100

Caddie – Mike Kerr

In 2021, Mike Kerr will be on the bag for Garcia who is known for having a fluctuating caddie situation.

The 2 met in Dubai during the DP World Tour Championship. That was back in 2021 and in 2020, we saw that Kerr was already on the bag for Garcia. Kerr replaces Garcia’s brother, Victor Garcia.

Kerr and Garcia will be teaming up again in 2021 for the PGA Tour and the European Tour.
