JON RAHM WINS THE BMW CHAMPIONSHIP WITH SIM DRIVER, SPIDER X PUTTER AND TP5 GOLF BALL

Carlsbad, Calif. (August 30, 2020) - TaylorMade's Jon Rahm wins his 5th PGA TOUR title at Olympia Fields CC following a dominant weekend shooting 66-64 to get into a playoff with Dustin Johnson.

Jon's playoff winning putt on 18 with his Spider X chalk was 66ft - his longest on the PGA TOUR this season. The other thirteen clubs in his bag are his SIM driver, SIM fairways, P750 irons and MG2 wedges.

Recently and just prior to his win at Memorial last month, Jon weakened the lofts on his P750 irons to adjust for a slight reduction in iron spin rates from his swing following the break in the PGA TOUR season.

NEED TO KNOW

  • Rahm made 297ft in putts with his Spider X chalk over the four rounds and gained +0.970 in SG: putting
  • Rahm was ranked 6th in Driving distance (331.2 yards)
  • This is Rahm's 5th PGA TOUR victory since turning professional in June 2016
  • Rahm led the field in Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green, Approach the Green and Proximity to the Hole
  • 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
  • Rahm's opening 36 holes (146) was the highest 36 hole score by a winner on the PGA TOUR since the 1999 Open Championship
  • It was the first time the world no.1 and no.2 have met in a playoff since 1995 World Series of Golf
  • Rahm bettered his opening 36 holes (146) by 16 shots shooting 130 on the weekend. This is the largest weekend improvement by a PGA Tour winner since fellow Team TaylorMade athlete Rory McIlroy shot 126 over the weekend at Quail Hollow in 2010 (17 strokes; 145-128)

Man, what a tournament, and finish.   I was watching on about 30 minutes delayed on DVR, having run out to get some carryout for dinner!

All of a sudden around 6:00 a text group I'm part of started going nuts with notifications.  I glanced at the first one and just saw WOW!!  And immediately knew I shouldn't read any more, at the time,---on the delayed version I was watching, Rham was up by a stroke and DJ was on hole 16.   I had several scenarios in my head as to what might have happened to create such a barrage of messages like that.   One even involved a Matsuyama, hole out on 18 or something wild like that.   Never could I have imagined the two bomb putts like we saw.

Although it was very similar to the Workday championship with Morikawa and JT!  

Can't wait to see what this week brings at Eastlake

I was driving back home from Oklahoma.  Stopped to get gas in Durant and saw that DJ made the putt for the playoff.  Stopped for a bit and watched the Rahm putt drop.  Glad it didn't happen while I was driving!

The last few weeks have been really good for TM, and I think the SIM is the only driver that might have a chance in my bag over my Honma.

Way to go Jon!  That last put was something to see.  However, I and others were more than underwhelmed by the feeble commentary of Jimmy Roberts and Steve Sands.  Things like which way does the put break or up or down hill or left  or right are left for one to wonder.  This Forest Gump announcing style “Golly gee, he made that put.” is weak and sounds babyish.  You can do better, you can improve. Paint us a better picture. Thanks

Four in a row, and I think 6 of the 11 tournaments since the restart.
