The clubs Rahm used to win the Hero World Challenge

Jon Rahm made an interesting driver switch ahead of his latest win. Equipment editor James Savage has the details

Spanish superstar Jon Rahm bagged his third win of 2018 after dominating over the weekend in the Bahamas.

That’s now three PGA Tour victories to go with his three European Tour titles – not bad for someone who turned pro two years ago.

We’ve seen Rahm put an old driver back in the bag recently – switching from the M4 back to the M2.

With new models from TaylorMade on the horizon, maybe Rahm wanted one last flirt with one of the best drivers of recent years.

The M2 doesn’t have the same ‘Twist Face’ technology as the M4.

It is quite rare to see one of TaylorMade’s marquee staff players not using the latest driver.

But all will be forgiven if he makes an early switch to the brand new model early in the new year.

Rahm opts for an M3 fairway wood which has an adjustable weight to fine tune the ball flight.

He carries an RSi TP driving iron with a Project X 6.5 steel shaft.

Rahm then goes into the P750 irons which are slightly more compact than the P770 and the brand new P760 which have just been released.

Rahm, like nearly all of TaylorMade’s big staff players, was quick to put the new Milled Grind Hi-Toe 60˚ wedge into play.

The Spider Tour Red putter has been a weapon for Rahm over his phenomenal two years and he favours the TP5x ball.
