A look in Sergio Garcia's bag

Posted at 10:40 AM by David Dusek | Categories: Sergio Garcia, TaylorMade, Winner's Bag

Garciakissandylyonsap Statistically speaking, Sergio Garcia did not putt especially well at TPC Sawgrass last week, and he missed a short birdie putt in the playoff against Paul Goydos. But his circa-2000 Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter will be in the bag for a while. You just don't kiss a putter after winning the Players Championship and $1.71 million and then go look for a new one.

Don't look for any changes in his woods or irons either. In swirling winds, Garcia ranked first in both fairways hit and greens in regulation for the week.

El Nino has been one of TaylorMade's marquee players for years. According to the company, this is what the Spaniard had in his bag at the Players:

Driver TaylorMade Tour Burner TP (9˚)
Fairway Woods TaylorMade Burner TP (14.5˚) and r7 TP (17.5˚)
Irons rac MB TP (3-PW)
Wedges rac Z TP (54˚ and 58˚)
Putter Titleist by Scotty Cameron Newport 2
Ball TaylorMade Red LDP

Garcia's performance stats for the week (rank):
Average driving distance —  283 yards (41st)
Fairway percentage — 76.8% (1st)
Greens in regulation — 77.8% (1st)
Putts per round — 31 (tie for 69th)
Putts per green in regulation — 1.786% (tie for 39th)
