Rahm Signs Equipment Deal with Callaway
Jon Rahm has left TaylorMade and signed an equipment deal with Callaway Golf, the company announced on Monday.
Speculation of Rahm leaving TaylorMade began after he did no appear in TaylorMade’s Christmas picture a couple of weeks ago.
“I’m so happy to be joining Callaway, and I can’t wait to start the year. The equipment is already performing well for me, and in my first round with the new setup, I shot a course record 59 at Silverleaf. I have confidence in my new Callaway clubs – and especially the golf ball, which has really impressed me during the testing process,” said Rahm.
Rahm will debut his new equipment at this week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
“We’re proud to welcome Jon Rahm as the newest member of our Tour Staff. He’s one of the very best players in the world, and he’s a proven winner on golf’s biggest global stages. We’ve admired Jon for many years, going back to his college days when he first used our equipment. We’re excited to see him playing Callaway and Odyssey again as he looks to take his game to yet another level,” said Callaway President & CEO Chip Brewer.
Along with his new Callaway clubs, Rahm will wear TravisMathew apparel in 2021.
What’s in The Bag
The second ranked player in the world will play a full bag of Callaway woods, irons, and wedges, along with the brand’s Chrome Soft X golf ball and an Odyssey Putter in 2021.
As well as an Odyssey putter and Callaway’s Chrome Soft X golf ball, Rahm’s bag in 2021 will include Callaway prototype woods and irons, along with the brand’s Jaws MD5 forged wedges.
Rahm, 26, turned professional in 2016 and has already won five times on the PGA TOUR, twice last season. He has reached world No. 1, earned 12 worldwide victories, competed for the victorious 2018 European Ryder Cup team, and won the 2019 European Tour Player of the Year award.
