Jon Rahm puts pen to paper on Callaway equipment deal

The biggest signing of golf’s transfer window is in the books.

John Rahm has joined Callaway after a little over four years as one of TaylorMade’s star athletes.

The Spaniard officially joined TaylorMade and adidas when he tuned professional at the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour in June 2016.

During his time as a TaylorMade staffer he amassed five PGA Tour victories, six wins on the European Tour and the Race to Dubai crown in 2019.

The only thing now missing from the 26-year-old’s stellar CV is a major championship title, which you would expect him to add to his list of achievements in the near future.

The huge transfer will see Rahm play a full bag of Callaway equipment while donning the latest TravisMathew clothing and Cuater shoes.

With Phil Mickelson hitting the 50 mark earlier this year, and seemingly transitioning into a part time PGA/Champions Tour player, Callaway was crying out for a new superstar to head up the brand.

Rahm, as the current World No.2 and with fans on both sides of the pond, would appear to fit the bill perfectly.

He will join the likes of Xander Schauffele, Henrik Stenson, Francesco Molinari, Matt Wallace, Danny Willett and Georgia Hall on Callaway’s extensive Tour Staff roster.

“I’m
so happy to be joining
Callaway, and I can’t wait
to start the year,”
Rahm said.

He continued, “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.”

With the move Rahm
is harking back to his college days at Arizona State University, where he used Callaway and Odyssey
equipment to win 11 tournaments while playing for Head Coach Tim
Mickelson.

Rahm has
the second most wins in the University’s
history, behind fellow
Callaway Staffer
Phil Mickelson.

“We’re
proud to welcome Jon Rahm as
the newest member of our
Tour Staff,” said
Callaway President
& CEO, Chip Brewer.

He added: “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 remains to be seen exactly what Callaway equipment will be making its way into Rahm’s bag, but as soon as we have the relevant info you’ll be able to find his full WITB here at bunkerd.co.uk
