World number two golfer Jon Rahm has swapped TaylorMade for Callaway after signing a multi-year equipment deal.
Spaniard Rahm has been with TaylorMade since turning professional and has earned 12 worldwide tour victories including five on the PGA Tour. He also reached the world number one rank for the first time.
But 2021 will be a new era for the 26-year-old Rahm after it was announced he was renewing his relationship with Callaway. Rahm used Callaway during his college career at Arizona State University.
“I’m so happy to be joining Callaway, and I can’t wait to start the year,” said Rahm, who shot a course record using his new Callaway clubs.
“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.”
Rahm will use Callaway prototype woods and irons, as well as Callaway Jaws MD5 forged wedges.
He will play the Callaway Chrome Soft X ball in his first tournament of the season, the Sentry Tournament of Champions, and have an Odyssey putter in the bag.
“We’re proud to welcome Jon Rahm as the newest member of our Tour Staff,” said Callaway President & CEO Chip Brewer.
“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.”
It was also announced that Rahm will wear the Callaway-owned TravisMathew apparel during the 2021 season. He will also wear branding of Topgolf, another Callaway backed company.
