The latest rumour in the golf world surrounds Sergio Garcia and his next potential big-money manufacturing move that could see the Spaniard sign a deal with Honma Golf.

The rumour sparked after Luke Donald posted a video on Twitter of Garcia giving out some top driving tips, where he was using the Honma TR20 driver.

Garcia is currently a free agent, following his split with Callaway after two years, claiming the partnership "wasn't the fit that we thought it would be for me."

Parting ways with Callaway was big news and due to the comments that were made, the situation became a bigger news story than I'm sure both parties were hoping for.

"There's things that happen, and obviously many of the things that Callaway wanted me to do, I couldn't agree to them," said Garcia back in January.

After ending his deal with Callaway, Garcia's most recent driver of choice was the TaylorMade SIM, a phenomenal driver used by some of the world's best players, which leads you to believe that the only reason Garcia would be testing the Honma TR20 is due to a possible deal in the pipeline.

Honma will be looking to replace Justin Rose, as the Englishman recently parted ways with the Japanese brand in a deal that lasted less than 18 months.

Rose said: "I am hopeful that during our time of partnership, we have laid the groundwork for Honma to continue to expand their brand. We both feel it is the right time to pursue our own paths."

Honma is keen on growing the brand in Europe after making its mark in Asia, so need a top European player - like Rose - as the poster boy for the brand and Garcia certainly fits the bill, with 35 professional wins, 16 of which on the European Tour and of course that famous Masters victory in 2017.
