What golf clubs and ball does Jon Rahm use? Our in-depth review of what’s in the bag of the two-time Major champion for 2023.
Today’s Golfer’s ‘What’s In The Bag’ insight is brought to you in association with Fujikura
Jon Rahm is enjoying a sensational season. Victories at The Sentry Tournament of Champions, The American Express, and the Genesis Invitational fired him back to World No.1. A slight dip in form was quickly forgotten as he produced a sensational display to win The Masters and his first Green Jacket, becoming just the fourth Spanish player to win the tournament after Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia. Fittingly, Rahm won at Augusta on what would have been Seve’s 66th birthday.
The Spaniard, who was also No.1 in the World Amateur rankings before turning pro, has eleven career PGA Tour wins and ten DP World Tour wins including his two Major titles – the 2021 US Open and 2023 Masters. He’s the first European to win both tournaments.
A Callaway staff player, Rahm’s incredible start to the year saw him become the fastest man to achieve three PGA Tour wins in a calendar year since Johnny Miller in 1975.
Victory at the Genesis also saw him become just the fourth international player, after Gary Player, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day, to achieve 10 PGA Tour wins before the age of 30.
“If you look at my numbers, the main difference is I have been more accurate on my approach shots but mainly making putts,” the European Ryder Cup star said. “I got a lot more comfortable with my putting. And, again, the last four or five months my putting has been about as good as it’s ever been.”
Let’s take an in-depth look at what golf clubs Jon Rahm is using for 2023.

What driver does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses a Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond Driver (10.5°) with an Aldila Tour Green ATX 75 2.8 TX Shaft
Best for low-spin with carry distance
In our driver's test, we found that The Paradym Triple Diamond will be a cracking driver when it's in the right hands. If you swing with the speed and consistency of Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele this may be the perfect driver for you. The chances are that many of you reading this don't swing as precisely as these tour players so may want to look for a low-spin driver with a little more forgiving.
TG's test pro Neil Wain said when hit out the middle the Paradym TD is a rocket. This is proven in our test being second for carry distance. During testing, they found that anything hit off-center was punished severely by the Paradym and resulted in a 59-yard-left-to-right dispersion.

- Adjustable weight track in Paradym
- Forgiveness throughout the range
- Very powerful and sounds fantastic
- Off-center hits will be punished
|Lofts||8°, 9°, 10.5°|
|Stock shafts||Aldila Ascent, HZRDUS Silver, HZRDUS Black, Mitsubishi Kai’li White|
What fairway woods does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses a Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond Fairway Wood (16°, 18°) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8X Shaft
Best fairway wood for elite players
Just like the Paradym Triple Diamond driver, the fairway is fast and long when hit from the middle. At 254 yards it was the second-longest on test.
However, while it looks neat and attractive at address, there’s no hiding that it hit shots into an area twice the size of our test average. It also launched shots with 700rpm less spin, flew four yards lower, and hit the ground at a five-degree shallower angle than our test averages. Put simply, the majority of club golfers will struggle to launch and live with this model on the golf course.

What utility iron does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses a Callaway Apex Utility Iron (21°) with a KBS Tour Hybrid Prototype 105 X Shaft
What irons does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses Callaway Apex TCB Irons (4-PW) with Project X 6.5 Shafts
What wedges does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses Callaway Jaws Raw Wedges (52°, 56°, 60°) with Project X 6.5 Shafts
Best from tight lies
Jaws is a tour-level model, designed from feedback garnered by their wedge supremo from working with the world’s top players.
It has a very sharp leading edge, which will be great for nipping shots from the tightest of lies, but makes it much more likely to dig into heavy damp turf too.
We’re big fans of how the Raw rusts only on the face, cutting out glare in bright sunlight. If you believe rusty faces spin more, then you get the best of both worlds – additional performance with wedges that don’t immediately look old and worn out. A very tidy, but pretty costly option.

- No glare in bright sunlight
- Sharp leading edge is good from tight lies
- Could dig in soft conditions

What putter does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses an Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S Putter (2.5°) Steel Stepped stroke Lab Shaft
What golf ball does Jon Rahm use?
Jon Rahm uses a Callaway Chrome Soft X Golf Ball 2022 (#10)
All three balls are designed to offer distance off the tee by reducing spin while delivering impressive spin and control around the greens. The Chrome Soft is a premium golf ball aimed at golfers with moderate swing speeds, whereas the Chrome Soft X and Chrome Soft X LS are targeted toward tour players and better players. Therefore there is a premium option for a wide range of golfers.
Making the Chrome Soft range of golf balls an option for more golfers is the addition of alignment aids and visibility assistance. My personal favorite is the 360° Triple Track which makes putting much more straightforward.
If you prefer a slightly softer ball with lower compression (slightly cheaper too) then take a look at the Callaway ERC Soft golf balls.

How Jon Rahm selected his Callaway bag
[Rahm has updated his equipment since the below was written, but the process of how he tested and selected clubs is still just as relevant and fascinating.]
When Jon Rahm signed for Callaway in the close season he did so with the intention of taking his game to the next level, which meant winning Majors and regaining his spot as World No.1. Fast-forward just a few months and, with victory at the US Open, the 26-year-old has achieved both, becoming the first Spaniard to win the Major in the process.
We sat down with the Ryder Cup star and Callaway to find out how he went about selecting his new bag.
When Callaway’s PGA Tour Manager Jacob Davidson received a text message from Jon Rahm just days after fitting him for 14 new clubs and ball, he could have been forgiven for being a bit apprehensive.
After all, the Spaniard was yet to be revealed as a Callaway staffer. He’d signed a big-money deal and undergone a through-the-bag fitting at the company’s Ely Callaway Performance Centre in Carlsbad, California, before flying back home to Arizona to test his new driver, irons, wedges, putter and ball.
But Davidson needn’t have worried. Rahm’s text read: “Shot 59!” – he’d just set a new course record at The Silverleaf Club in Scottsdale in his first round with them.
Jon Rahm’s Callaway deal is the biggest Tour equipment switch for several years. With his equipment contract up for renewal at the end of 2020, Callaway set out a plan to make it happen. “Last year presented many challenges, but one positive was taking the Tour team off the road,” Davidson told Today’s Golfer.
“When the Tour was suspended, we weren’t traveling week in, week out so we had time to re-evaluate what we wanted our Tour team to look like in 2021. We collaborated closely among the US and European teams, the R&D and marketing departments, and asked: Is there any Tour pro we really want to bring on board?
“We knew Jon’s equipment contract was up going into 2021, but we’ve had a long relationship with him. He played Callaway at college, he’s really good friends with Phil Mickelson, and they share the same agent, so there’s a connection. He also shares a lot of the values we have – competitive, a family guy, he commands respect. So he’s a really good fit.”
Of course, being a good fit for your brand and signing on the dotted line are two very different things, so Callaway needed to convince Rahm, particularly when it came to the ball. “We had to do our homework,” said Davidson.
“There would only be one chance. So we spent a lot of time analyzing his stats, asking where we could help him if we had the opportunity. Fifteen or 20 years ago we couldn’t have approached the situation like this. Launch monitors and Shotlink gave us the opportunity to be prepared like never before.”
With Rahm’s interest piqued, he met the team at Callaway.
“He was excited to learn we spend more on R&D than any other golf brand,” Davidson reveals. “How we’re leading artificial intelligence in golf, and about the investment we’ve made in our golf ball factory. We did our due diligence. We spoke to his caddie, coach and team and studied his stats at length before spending time with him to get a real feel for what he likes.
“From there we built a set of clubs confident they’d be a really good fit. This is how we did it…”
