- The Spaniard emerged victorious on a brutally difficult final day at Jack Nicklaus’ Muirfield Village that included a controversial penalty for the 25-year-old. Rahm’s fourth PGA Tour victory the result of accurate driving, strong iron play and scrambling combined with a solid week with the putter. Rahm ranked in the top-10 for driving accuracy, greens in regulation and scrambling this week having made a number of changes to his equipment this year, including a switch to the TP5 from the firmer X model earlier this year to provide more spin and control as well as weakening his irons lofts since the PGA Tour’s return to refine his ball flight.
- Rahm has been loyal to the Aldila Tour Green shaft in his driver and 3-wood since arriving on Tour, the model dating back to 2013. Designed to update the profile of the company’s incredibly popular NV all green shaft, the Tour Green produces a low ball flight, whereas the Tour Blue, favoured by Rickie Fowler at times in his fairway woods delivers a higher flight.
- The former Arizona State player’s win represents a strong recent period both on the PGA Tour and in relation to the top of the world rankings for sponsor TaylorMade. Rahm’s victory at Jack’s place is the third from six events for the company since the PGA Tour’s restart, with TaylorMade also having four of the last five players to top the men’s Official World Golf Rankings on staff.
