World number two Jon Rahm has started off 2021 by joining the Callaway Tour professional staff in a multiyear agreement.
The 26-year old Spaniard who used Callaway and Odyssey equipment at Arizona State University, where he won 11 tournaments while playing for Head Coach Tim Mickelson, had his best year on tour yet in 2020 winning two tournaments, winning both the BMW Championship and the Memorial Tournament, the victory that secured him the World Number One position for a short period of time.
His ranking rose a spot from number three and only missed one cut during the shortened PGA Tour.
Rahm who is transitioning into a full bag of Callaway Woods, Callaway Irons, Callaway
Wedges, Callaway Chrome Soft X Golf Ball’s and an Odyssey Putter said he is excited about 2021 year and being back with Callaway.
“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,” Rahm said.
“I have confidence in my new Callaway clubs – and especially the golf ball, which has really impressed me during the testing process.”
Rahm worked extensively with Callaway’s Tour Department to dial in the specs for each of his new clubs and he will officially make his Callaway Staff debut this coming week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, at the Plantation Course at Kapalua in Maui Hawaii, with a bag that includes some exciting new gear including Callaway Prototype Woods, Callaway Prototype Irons, and Callaway Chrome Soft X Golf Ball.
Rahm who has been one of the best players in the game since he turned professional in 2016, has earned 12 worldwide victories, competed for the victorious 2018 European Ryder Cup team, received the 2019 European Tour Player of the Year award, and he won two PGA Tour events in 2020.
Rahm also has the second-most wins in school history, behind fellow Callaway Staffer Phil Mickelson. He received the Ben Hogan Award as the best college player in the United States in 2015 and 2016, the first golfer to win the award twice, and he was the number one ranked amateur in the world for a record 60 weeks.
Callaway President & CEO Chip Brewer said he’s proud to welcome Jon Rahm as the newest member of the Callaway 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,” Brewer said.
“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.”
