Sergio Garcia, TaylorMade mutually end sponsorship after 15 years together

Sergio Garcia is leaving TaylorMade after a decade and a half with the company, the company announced on Monday in a press release.

"Today, after a memorable 15-year partnership with Sergio Garcia, we have mutually agreed to a release from the remaining years of his TaylorMade contract," the statement read. 

"It has been an honor to play a role in his performance throughout his career, including The Players Championship, 19 worldwide wins, Ryder Cup heroics and his 2017 Masters win. We congratulate Sergio on a career year and wish him all the best for the future."

The 2017 Masters champion had multiple years left on his current contract, but as the release noted, the breakup was mutual. This won't hurt TaylorMade, which still has Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and other big-name players.

As for Garcia, whose Masters victory with TaylorMade sticks was the 10th PGA Tour win of his career, it's not difficult to read between the lines to see where he's headed next
