Favorite club: TaylorMade SLDR 460 driver
Loft: 9.5 degrees
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana White Board 103X (45 inches and counterbalanced)
Garcia: "I'm really happy with all of the TaylorMade clubs in my bag, but if I had to pick one, it would probably be my SLDR driver. I've always liked hitting driver, even when I was younger. I switched to SLDR at the end of last season and have been hitting it a little bit farther and straighter than my old driver."
"Because the driver spins a little bit less, I had to go up in loft one degree from 8.5 degrees to 9.5 degrees. I like to play a heavier [Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana White Board 103X shaft in my driver for feel and control. I have the same shaft in my 3 and 5-wood."
