- There was no statistical weakness in Rahm’s game at Olympia Fields, where he ranked outside the top-25 in only one metric recorded by the PGA Tour (Longest Drive ranked T29). Rahm found just over half of the fairways at the former US Open venue while averaging 331.2 yards off the tee with his TaylorMade SIM driver that is fitted with the same shaft the Spaniard has used since beginning his time on the PGA Tour and winning the Farmers Insurance Open in 2017. Rahm’s win the seventh with a TaylorMade driver since the PGA Tour restart and fourth in a row.
- The 25-year-old typically finds equipment he likes and sticks with it, while making slight changes at times. Rahm has been loyal to TaylorMade’s Spider putter family, his Chalk finished Spider X featuring no alignment lines or markings on top of the head. The putter delivering the knockout blow on Sunday when he found the bottom of the cup from 66-feet to defeat last week’s winner Dustin Johnson in a playoff.
- Having switched to the softer TP5 ball model and weakened his iron lofts to produce a desired ball flight and carry distances, Rahm’s second win on the PGA Tour in 2020 and fifth overall marks the sixth win for TaylorMade’s premium ball model since the June restart of the PGA Tour.
