Historically, golf equipment companies announce the signing of new tour staff members in the first days of January, after the player’s previous endorsement deal runs out.
However, TaylorMade did not have to wait until after the calendar runs out on 2020 to announce that England’s Tommy Fleetwood, who is currently ranked No. 17 on the Official World Golf Ranking, is now with the Carlsbad, California-based company.
Why? Fleetwood was a free agent and has not had an equipment deal for a few seasons.

As of Monday night, TaylorMade had not released details about Fleetwood’s deal, but it should be interesting to see exactly which clubs he opts to use. While he experimented with several different woods, wedges and putters, he used a set of TaylorMade P-7TW irons throughout 2019 and into 2020 before switching into a set of customized TaylorMade P-7TF irons.
Fleetwood has also been carrying a TaylorMade GAPR Lo utility iron for over two years. That club is especially unique because unlike the version sold at retail, Fleetwood’s does not have an adjustable hosel.
