World No 2 Jon Rahm has announced a new multi-year equipment deal with Callaway.
Rahm, who spent years with rival TaylorMade, will now have Callaway woods and irons in his bag when he makes his 2021 PGA Tour debut at this week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions in Maui.
He’ll also be using Callaway’s Chrome Soft X golf ball and eventually plans to transition to Callaway wedges and an Odyssey putter as well.

Rahm will also wear apparel from TravisMathew, which was acquired by Callaway in 2017, and sport a Topgolf logo on the sleeve of his shirt. Callaway merged with Topgolf in October.
“I’m so happy to be joining Callaway, and I can’t wait to start the year,” said Rahm, who worked extensively with the Company’s Tour Department to dial in the specs for each of his new 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 previously used Callaway and Odyssey equipment during his college career at Arizona State University, winning 11 tournaments during that time.
“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.”
