Jon Rahm is tough not to like. He was born with some physical challenges that led to a unique swing, but he still manages to dominate on the PGA tour.
As a Callaway staff player, Rahm has some of the latest releases from Callaway. I know you can’t wait to see what his driver is and whether or not it comes in a flex for you. However, I recommend paying close attention to his wedges and short-game tools.
Golfers change their clubs from time to time, but in this article, we will look at Jon Rahm’s “What’s in the Bag” (WITB) as of November, revealing the equipment that makes winning on the PGA Tour look easy!

Jon Rahm WITB November: Driver
As a Callaway Golfer, Jon Rahm really had no choice but to pick up the Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond. The Triple Diamond is the model built for the lowest handicap players with the ability to control the flight of their drives.
The thing that will really impress you about this new Paradym Triple Diamond is the 450cc clubhead. Yes, sometimes the professionals prefer a slightly smaller clubhead as opposed to the largest available 460cc.
Control! The Paradym Triple Diamond allows Rahm to control his shots with ease.
Rahm plays with the Aldila Tour Green ATX 75 2.8 TX shaft. Rahm gets a lot of speed coming through impact thanks to that flexed left wrist at the top of the backswing. The Aldila shaft can handle his kind of speed and make it easier to keep the clubhead square.
The Aldila shafts have always been among some of my favorites. The great news is that you can get them for professional and amateur players. Just be realistic about the weighting and the flex.
In addition to the driver, Rahm carries a 3 Wood and 5 Wood to match the Paradym Triple Diamond. One thing to take note of here is the loft gap between the 3 and the 5 wood. Even though the 3 wood is a 16 degree HL, Rahm has it playing to a 15 degree.
The extra distance between the lofts helps him fill those distance gaps in his golf bag.
Jon Rahm WITB November: Irons
Jon Rahm is a Callaway guy all the way through the entire bag. His irons are a bit of a mixed set as he plays with a 21 degree Callaway Apex UT in 21 degree loft. Then, he switches to the Callaway Apex TCB for the 4-PW.
The 21 degree features a unique shaft to help it perform a bit more like a hybrid. The Callaway Apex TCB irons are one of the most popular choices for Callaway tour professionals.
Expect the TCB to have a mix of feel and precision while still offering strong distance. Rahm doesn’t have a problem with distance, but all professional players will take some speed coming off the face without complaining about it.
Having a mixed set of irons is quite common for a golf professional. The mixed set allows fine-tuned performance from any area on the course. It’s also not uncommon to see a golf professional with high swing speeds like Jon Rahm shy away from a hybrid in the bag.
Let’s not forget the hybrids were created to help golfers with slightly slower swing speeds hit those longer approaches to the greens.
When it comes to shafts, Rahm uses the KBS Tour Hybrid Prototype 105 X in his 21 degree, a shaft you will have a hard time finding. However, the Project X 6.5 seen throughout the rest of his set is one of the most common golf shaft options across standard sets.
The Project X 6.5 is a good option for a penetrating ball flight, plenty of spin, and a lot of control.
Rahm has no trouble attacking pins, and we can see why by the choice of the irons he has in his bag. For golfers who like to fire at the pin, this is a club that makes a lot of sense.
Jon Rahm WITB November: Wedges
For Callaway golfers, the Jaws wedges are a no-brainer. Callaway does a good job with the Jaws wedges, ensuring they have high spin rates on both full swing and half swing golf shots.
Rahm carries a Callaway Jaws in the 52, 56, and 60 degree wedge. He has his 56 set to 55.25 degrees. If that doesn’t tell you something about precision, nothing will! How many golfers do you know that would be able to tell the difference between 56 and 55.25.
All the wedges in Rahm’s bag feature the Project X 125 6.5. It comes as no surprise to us that there is a similarity between the shaft in the irons and the wedges. Golfers who are great players understand the importance of proper weighting and feel from one club to the next, and you can see that throughout the entire set of Jon Rahm’s.
If you haven’t already seen it, Rahm has some customizations done to his wedges to have his children’s and wives’ names engraved. He’s a family guy, and this is an excellent way for him to keep them with him on the course.
Jon Rahm WITB November: Putters
Jon Rahm plays with the Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S. Years ago, I had one of the original Rossie puters, and I certainly can understand why Rahm puts one of these in his bag.
To be honest, the greatest thing about the Rossie S putter is the way it sits at setup. Even though this is a traditional mallet putter and the size is about standard, it seems to sit so nicely and flat to the ground.
For a consistent setup and a stroke that starts with a great tempo, the Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S is a great choice. It’s easy to see that Rahm has no trouble remaining confident with this putter in the bag.
What Can We Learn From Jon Rahm’s Golf Bag
Now that you have a rundown of which golf clubs Jon Rahm has in the bag, let’s take a look at the key takeaways and what we can learn from his equipment setup. When we look at the golf clubs that professionals play with, the idea is not to copy them but instead to learn what they do that we can bring to our own games.
- Jon Rahm is a Callaway player all the way through his entire bag; by sticking with one manufacturer, he can guarantee loft consistency and a similar feel throughout the set
- The shafts in both fairway woods are the same, providing Rahm with a consistent weighting but unique lofts to help improve the overall results
- When you look at the bounce in Rahm’s wedges, you will see 10, 12, and 10 degrees of bounce. These are all considered mid-bounce wedges, giving him freedom in the types of shots he wants to hit around the green
- The long clubs offers low spin, high swing speed players need that lower spin to control ball flight, maximize distance, and get the ball close to the hole
- Next time you get the chance, look at how short Rahm keeps his swing from time to time and how much power he can generate; it says quite a bit about the technology in these clubs.
