A multi-year equipment deal with Callaway Golf has been signed! The Player? Jon Rahm. The young pro holds 6 wins on the European Tour and 5 on the PGA Tour, making him #2 in the world! As a Staff Pro, he will transition into a full bag of Callaway Woods, Callaway Irons, Callaway Wedges, a Callaway Chrome Soft X Golf Ball and an Odyssey Putter.
“I’m so happy to be joining Callaway, and I can’t wait to start the year,” Rahm said. “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.” – Jon Rahm
Rahm worked extensively with the Company’s Tour Department to dial in the specs for each of his new clubs and the ball. That ball being the Callaway’s Chrome Soft X! He will officially make his Callaway Staff debut this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
Rahm used Callaway and Odyssey equipment at Arizona State University, where he won 11 tournaments while playing for Head Coach Tim Mickelson. Rahm has the second most wins in school history, behind fellow Callaway Staffer Phil Mickelson. He received the Ben Hogan Award as the best college player in the United States in 2015 and 2016, the first golfer to win the award twice, and he was the #1 ranked amateur in the world for a record 60 weeks.
“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.” – Chip Brewer
Rahm will wear TravisMathew apparel both on and off the golf course and will work with the Cuater team to develop custom performance footwear he will wear during competitions later this year.
“I’m really pleased to begin the next chapter of my career as a part of this team with TravisMathew and Cuater,” said Rahm. “Everything TravisMathew makes is lightweight with stretch, providing a lot of comfort. I really feel confident playing in TravisMathew apparel and can’t wait to wear it off the course as well.” – Jon Rahm
Rahm’s motivation to make the move to TravisMathew apparel and Cuater footwear can be attributed primarily to the signature blend of performance, comfort, and style that each product offers. Both TravisMathew and Cuater are committed to making products that meet the performance requirements of the best players in the world while still delivering the comfort, style, and versatility for wear on and off the course. This was a major draw for Rahm as he considered a new apparel and footwear partner.
We can’t wait to watch Jon Rahm on tour in 2021 and wish the best in his decision to play Callaway Golf products and sport TravisMathew and Cuater apparel.
