JON RAHM WINS THE MEMORIAL AND BECOMES WORLD NO.1

Team TaylorMade's Jon Rahm collects his 4th PGA TOUR victory in as many years as a professional using SIM driver, SIM fairways and TP5 ball.

 

Carlsbad, Calif. (July 19th, 2020) - One of the most consistent players on TOUR, TaylorMade's Jon Rahm won the Memorial at Muirfield Village GC with rounds of 69-67-68-75 to win by 3.

In becoming world no.1, Jon becomes just the second Spanish golfer to reach the no.1 spot with Seve Ballesteros being the only other. He's been on a steep OWGR (Official World Golf Ranking) ascent ever since he turned professional in June 2016 and even during his amateur year's where he earned OWGR points.

 

Rahm's OWGR end of year ranking by year is as follows:

  • 2014: 1,548
  • 2015: 585
  • 2016: 137
  • 2017: 6
  • 2018: 4
  • 2019: 3
  • 2020: 1* (* year-to-date)
 

Jon plays 14 TaylorMade clubs and balls including the SIM driver, two SIM fairways, P750 irons (which he has weakened since the re-start to adjust for a slight reduction in iron spin rates from his swing), MG2 wedges, Spider X and the TaylorMade TP5 ball.

NEED TO KNOW

  • This is Rahm's 4th PGA TOUR victory since turning professional in June 2016
  • Rahm moves to world no.1 for the first time in his career
  • Jon switched into TP5 from the TP5X earlier this year for more spin and control with his irons and wedges
  • Rahm weakened the lofts in his irons slightly as he was hitting them further since the break and wanted to better manage his trajectory and descent angle
  • Cumulative through all 4 rounds, Jon was ranked 1st in SG: Tee to Green (+15.462) and SG: Around the Green (+6.261)

Pretty cool seeing him get to number 1. Crazy to think that with some high level pros in Olazabal, Jimenez and Segio that he’s only the second Spaniard to reach that spot. Also heard Balionis say he’s the 3rd youngest to get the top.

Yep. Good win for him.  Actually it's 4th youngest I believe.  Tiger, Speith and Rory.  He beat JT by a couple months.

It’s a great era for golf when we have so many worthy number 1’s.

Now we need to get a few of them playing their best golf at the same time to really spice things up.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Seve was the previous World #1 from Spain, for a short time, right after the World Golf Rankings were created in 1986.
