Winner’s Bag: The clubs Jon Rahm used to win the 2021 U.S. Open
At the start of 2021, Jon Rahm signed a multi-year deal with Callaway Golf and changed out all 14 of his clubs, plus his golf ball. Making such large scale changes could be seen as a big risk for an already established player, but it didn’t take long for the decision to pay off. On Sunday, Rahm captured his first ever major championship by winning the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
Just weeks ago at the Memorial Tournament – where Rahm tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday while holding a six shot lead – he debuted a new prototype putter from Odyssey, called a White Hot OG Rossie S. The putter has a hosel design that matches up better with his stroke mechanics to help him find more consistency on putts from 8-to-10 feet. It also has Odyssey’s White Hot Microhinge face insert to produce a quicker roll off the face.
“He wanted something to match his stroke with what he’s doing now,” Odyssey rep Joe Toulon told GOLF.com. “His stroke mechanics have changed a little bit and he wanted to get back to a different feel.”
Since coming aboard the Callaway staff, Rahm and the company have worked closely to get him fit into equipment that matches up to his particular needs. Below, we go through the specifications on the gear he had in the bag this week at the U.S. Open.
