Winner's Bag: Jon Rahm, Farmers Insurance Open


Jeff Gross

Last year Jon Rahm was finishing up a stellar amateur career at Arizona State University and in June, turned professional and signed with TaylorMade, whose tour staff boasted names such as U.S. Open champ Dustin Johnson and Jason Day.

Last week at the CareerBuilder Challenge Rahm employed a number of new clubs from the company, including a red-colored Itsy Bitsy Spider Limited putter similar to the one Day employs. Rahm used that putter Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open to drain a 60-foot, eight-inch eagle putt on the finishing hole at Torrey Pines South to effectively clinch the title.

During the off-season Rahm made good use of his “time off” to test the company’s new line of equipment. In addition to the putter Rahm also changed to the company’s new M2 driver, P750 irons and Milled Grind wedges.
