Here are the biggest Callaway and Odyssey equipment notes so far this week, including Jon Rahm’s new Odyssey putter and another big Thursday for Epic:
Rahm’s New Odyssey Putter + All Callaway Gear In His Bag
This week, Jon Rahm is using a new Odyssey 2-Ball Prototype Putter at Torrey Pines. He practiced with this new design earlier in the week, and he noticed how it helped with the takeaway in his stroke. After testing a wide range of models, Rahm really liked the performance with this model.
Jon officially signed as a Callaway Staff Pro earlier this month, and he’s making his second start of the year at Torrey with all 14 Callaway clubs and our golf ball in the bag. His setup this week includes an Epic Speed Driver, his new Odyssey Putter, and a Chrome Soft X Ball.
Epic Momentum Continues On The European Tour
Last week, Epic officially debuted on the European Tour, and this week there are 32 Epic Driver models in play at the Abu Dhabi Championship. Callaway is comfortably the #1 Driver Brand in the field with over 37% of all drivers, and we’re the #1 Fairway Wood, Hybrid, Irons and Putter Brand (Odyssey – over 53% of all putters in play). At Torrey Pines, Alex Noren (tied for the lead), Talor Gooch, Rahm, and Will Gordon all in early contention with Epic in the bag.
White Hot OG Is A Popular Choice
The new White Hot OG Putters are available today – and they’re already getting a lot of attention out on Tour. At the Farmers Insurance Open, 8 White Hot OG Putters are in play for Tour Pros like Marc Leishman (#1 WS), Tyler McCumber (#7), and Chase Seiffert (2-Ball) among others. On the European Tour, there are 9 White Hot OG Putters in the field. These putters feature the original White Hot insert formulation in a premium high performance design.
Going For Three In A Row
Callaway has won the last two weeks on the PGA Tour, with Kevin Na’s victory at the Sony Open and Si Woo Kim’s win on Sunday at The American Express. Kim locked up the first Tour win for Epic Speed, and it was yet another victory for our Chrome Soft X Ball. Si Woo and Kevin both used an Odyssey Toulon Madison Putter in their wins as well. We will look to make it three straight this weekend at Torrey Pines.
