If Sergio Garcia wins TaylorMade will refund clubs


As if Sergio Garcia doesn’t have enough pressure on him already to get that major monkey off his back, the current “Mr. Best Player to Have Never Won a Major” now has to win one for the buyer. Golfsmith is running a Masters promotion on its website with TaylorMade staff player Garcia in which it will refund the full purchase price of an r7 Limited, R9 or Burner ’09 driver should Garcia win The Masters.
Here’s the catch: You must purchase one of the three TaylorMade drivers mentioned above (the r7 Limited and Burner ’09 are listed at $299 on Golfsmith.com; the R9 at $399) by April 11, send in your refund promotion form, and then hope that Garcia wins a green jacket.
If Sergio’s recent performance at Augusta National is any indication, Golfsmith shouldn’t have too much to worry about. Garcia has missed the cut in three of his last four starts there, the lone exception a 46th-place finish in 2006. He does, however, have two top-10 finishes to his credit – an eighth-place finish in ’02 and a tie for fourth in ’04.
The interesting thing about this promotion is that it ends at midnight CST time on the 11th, which means you have three rounds to determine whether you think Garcia is a good buy. If Sergio holds a big 54-hole lead, you can then break out your credit card if you’d like and purchase one of the three drivers either online, by phone or at your local Golfsmith retailer.
