Jon Rahm moved to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings with a sudden-death playoff victory over Andrew Landry at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Rahm rolled in a 12-foot birdie on the fourth playoff hole with his TaylorMade Spider Tour Red putter to secure the win, but it was his strong play off the tee and from the fairway that ultimately gave him so many good looks down the stretch.
Rahm recently replaced his TaylorMade M2 driver and M1 3-wood with the company's new M4 driver and M3 5-wood at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. The driver features the company's new Twist Face design that improves accuracy on off-center hits by curving the face more open in the toe portion of the face and more closed toward the heel.
During his initial testing session with TaylorMade's Tour team, Rahm picked up 3 mph ball speed with the M4 driver. For the week, Rahm recorded the longest drive (346 yards), ranked fourth in Strokes Gained: Off the tee (plus 2.406) and fifth in driving distance (309.8 yards).
Rahm also ranked seventh in Strokes Gained: Approach the green (plus 3.524) with a split set of P-Series irons and Milled Grind wedges, including the new Milled Grind Hi-Toe lob wedge TaylorMade recently launched on TOUR.
Here's a look at Rahm's entire TaylorMade setup.
