Garcia sponsor TaylorMade calls comment 'offensive'


In light of controversial comments made Tuesday night by Sergio Garcia concerning Tiger Woods, the Spaniard's main equipment provider released an official statement Wednesday morning.

Below is the full response from TaylorMade Golf, which has sponsored Garcia since 2002:

'Sergio Garcia’s recent comment was offensive and in no way aligns with TaylorMade-adidas Golf’s values and corporate culture. We have spoken with Sergio directly and he clearly has regret for his statement and we believe he is sincere. We discussed with Sergio that his comments are clearly out of bounds and we are continuing to review the matter.'
