Camilo Villegas signs deal with TaylorMade

Camilo-Villegas-TaylorMade-FW_600x450 copy Rumors that have been swirling on golf equipment message boards and chat sites can now be put to rest—Camilo Villegas is leaving Cobra Golf and has agreed to become a TaylorMade staff player starting in 2011.

Currently ranked No. 24 in the world, the Colombian has won three PGA Tour events in five years, the most-recent coming in March at the 2010 Honda Classic.

Plenty of equipment junkies noticed that Villegas used a TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 3-wood at the British Open. (Click the image for a better look.) That touched off speculation that Villegas was considering a major equipment change.

Villegas will use TaylorMade golf clubs, and as part of his agreement, he will carry them in a TaylorMade bag and use a TaylorMade ball next season too. He will also begin wearing Adidas golf shoes.

Here is a complete list of the clubs that Villegas used to win the Honda Classic:

DRIVER: Cobra S9-1 (10.5°) with a Matrix TP7 shaft
FAIRWAY WOODS: Cobra Speed LD (15.5°, 18°) with Grafalloy Prolite X shafts
HYBRID: Titleist 909H (24°) with True Temper Project X HC1 shaft
IRONS: Cobra Pro CB (5-PW) with Project X 7.0 shafts
WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled (54°, 58°, 60°) Project X 7.0 shafts
PUTTER: Scotty Cameron for Titleist Circa 62 No. 6 prototype
BALL: Titleist Pro V1
