Sergio Garcia is using a new putter at the 2017 Dell Technologies Championship, and it’s not one made by equipment sponsor TaylorMade.
Garcia was spotted using a Toulon Design putter, which is a company owned by rival Callaway Golf.

It’s unclear which Toulon Design head Garcia is using at TPC Boston. The face insert appears to be slightly different than what’s available for a consumer at the Toulon Design website. The head appears to potentially be a variant on the Memphis mallet, though the short hosel is very similar to that found on the TaylorMade Spider Tour putter Garcia had been using with such success in 2017, including a Masters win.
Garcia is under contract with TaylorMade for his 13 clubs in the bag, excluding putter, so this would not be considered a breach of that contract.
However, Garcia did score well in Round 1 on Friday, shooting 4-under 67 to trail fellow TaylorMade staffer Dustin Johnson by a shot heading into Saturday’s second round.
