Jon Rahm entered the week as a big favourite and lived up to the hype at the Mexico Open for his seventh PGA Tour win. Here is what the 27-year-old had in the bag.
WINNING SCORE: 17-under-par, 267.
DRIVER: Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS with 10.5˚ loft, fitted with Aldila Tour Green 75 TX shaft.
3-WOOD: Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond T HL with 16.5˚ loft, with Aldila Tour Green 85 TX shaft.
5-WOOD: Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond T with 18˚ loft, with Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8 X shaft.
IRONS: Callaway X Forged UT 21 with 22˚ loft and Callaway Apex TCB (4-iron to pitching wedge), with True Temper Project X 6.5 shafts.
WEDGES: Callaway Jaws Forged (52˚-10˚, 56˚-12˚ & 60˚-10˚), with True Temper Project X 6.5 shafts.
PUTTER: Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S.
BALL: Callaway Chrome Soft X.
- Rahm's bag is much the same as when he won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, with the exception of upgrading his woods to the latest Rogue ST models from sponsor Callaway. The pen mark in the hosel of the driver (pictured above) is likely from Rahm's testing with Callaway of the new models where clubs are labelled to make it easier to differentiate the heads.
Since arriving on Tour, Rahm has stayed loyal to his shafts of choice, even as most of the Tour has moved away from the Aldila shaft he favours in the driver. Popular on Tour when released, the Tour Green is an extremely stable shaft and offers a low ball flight. Meanwhile, the Triple Diamond 'T' stamped driver and fairway woods he plays offer a low spin flight with the T marking them as a Tour only head.
Rahm's putter is a one of a kind model featuring the classic Odyssey Rossie head with a slant neck, no alignment lines and an O-Works insert. Rahm also plays his putter at 37 inches, longer than the standard putter on Tour, to accomodate his setup.
- The win in Mexico is a double for Callaway and Spain. Rahm's compatriot and fellow Tour staff player Adri Arnaus claimed the Catalunya Championship also using a Rogue ST Triple Diamond driver and Chrome Soft X golf ball.
QUOTE: “I think that Sunday with Tiger at Augusta gave me quite a bit of confidence. I was a little bit technical in my approach, a little too technical. I'm a feel player and that Sunday I told myself just go out there and hit the golf ball, make shots, see the ball flight and execute and I shot a three-under without having my best stuff on a tough day.” – Jon Rahm.
