Win expected to move Sergio into Top 10 of Official World Golf Rankings
TaylorMade-adidas Golf Tour Staff Professional Sergio Garcia birdied six of the last 12 holes and won the Qatar Masters in a 3-hole playoff for his second victory in three events.
Sergio wore adidas Golf apparel and footwear and played a full bag of TaylorMade equipment including the SLDR driver.
On a week when TaylorMade staff professionals wore “Loft Up” hats, Sergio played his SLDR gamer a full degree of loft more than his previous driver to take advantage of the low-spinning performance of the club. Because of the low and forward design of SLDR, tour players across the world have been “lofting up” to achieve the desirable high launch and low spin performance off the tee. Sergio ranked No. 5 in driving distance averaging 299.6 yards and was one of 29 players in the Qatar Masters field who played a SLDR. Click here to learn more about the No. 1 driver in golf.
Known as one of the best ball strikers in the game, Sergio also hit 75% of his greens with his new Tour Preferred MC irons. This was the second time in three events Sergio has played and won with the MC irons, which combine a player’s shape with a shallow “muscle cavity” to boost MOI, creating an unparalleled blend of beauty, feel, workability and stability. The 3- through 7-iron incorporate TaylorMade’s renowned Speed Pocket™ technology to promote increased ball speed in the lower portion of the clubface for more consistent ball speed and launch conditions across the entire face.

Sergio also wore adidas Golf apparel and footwear including the new adizero one, which launched this week on Tour. The adizero one is the lightest cleated performance golf shoe in the adidas Golf footwear arsenal weighing less than 10 ounces. A visually appealing design that provides maximum performance features a unique center traction cleat utilizing CenTraXion™ technology for ultimate grip while maintaining stability throughout the swing.

The win represented the 11th European Tour title and Sergio’s 25th worldwide. He also won his final event of 2013, the Asian Tour’s Thailand Golf Championship in Bangkok. Sergio is expected to move into the Official World Golf Ranking’s top 10.
