Which pros are switching equipment companies for 2018?

With the start of 2018, we'll learn which pro golfers are switching equipment companies for the new year.

Sergio Garcia and Xander Schauffele both moved from TaylorMade Golf to Callaway Golf, while both sticking with adidas Golf for apparel. Tyrrell Hatton signed with adidas Golf for apparel

Si Woo Kim has also moved to Callaway Golf from TaylorMade Golf. He's using a full bag of Callaway equipment. He'll also wear Nike golf shoes, along with Lee Westwood, and the South Korean will go to Peter Millar for his clothing.

Hudson Swafford, who won the 2017 CareerBuilder Challenge, joined the Callaway Golf staff as well. He had been on staff with Bridgestone Golf. He's using a full bag of Callaway equipment, as well.

Also signing equipment deals with Callaway are Robert Garrigus, Sam Saunders, Brice Garnett, Luke List, and LPGA player Georgia Hall.

Jason Dufner was seen at the 2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions playing a TaylorMade M4 driver. However, he isn't under contract to play the equipment, so he could be freelancing this year.

KJ Choi has signed a deal with PING to play their equipment through the bag.

Patrick Reed is a bit of a mystery. He's no longer listed as a Callaway Golf staffer, and he signed a head-to-toe apparel deal with Nike Golf. Blade collars are in; back-pocket patterns are out...maybe.

Chris Wood, Cameron Champ and Jimmy Stanger all signed with Nike Golf, too, while Alex Noren expanded his deal with the company to become head-to-toe Swoosh.

In the fashion world, Peter Millar added a ton of players beyond The Players champ: Branden Grace, Chesson Hadley, Hudson Swafford, Chez Reavie, Scott Brown, Sam Saunders, Johnson Wagner, Shawn Stefani, Matteo Manassero, Davis (Dru) Love IV, Chris Wilson and Brett Quigley.

Srixon/Cleveland Golf made a big splash in Canada, signing former (and now retired) long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski to an endorsement deal. Grayson Murray appears to have signed with the company as well, but that has yet to be formally announced.

On the LPGA side, Anna Nordqvist and Katherine Kirk have joined the PXG staff.
