World No.2 Jon Rahm joins Callaway Staff
The rumours of a split came thick and fast following the release of TaylorMade’s annual Christmas card where the Spaniard usually features alongside the likes of fellow stablemates Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy.
However, Jon Rahm, was nowhere to be seen and now we know why.
Callaway Golf has announced that the World No.2, has signed a multiyear agreement with the company that includes 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,” said Rahm.
“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.”

The 26-year-old will officially make his Callaway Staff debut later this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii using Callaway Prototype Woods, Callaway Prototype Irons, and a Callaway Chrome Soft X Golf Ball.
The 26-year-old Spaniard has been one of the best players in the game since he turned professional in 2016 including reaching World No.1 in July and August 2020 along with 12 worldwide victories and being named the 2019 European Tour Player of the Year.
And Rahm is no stranger to the Callaway brand having previously used Callaway and Odyssey equipment at Arizona State University, where he won 11 tournaments while playing for Head Coach Tim Mickelson.
“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.”
In addition to using Callaway and Odyssey equipment, Rahm will wear apparel from TravisMathew.
