It’s always a good time in San Diego. The years will go by, and the Farmers Insurance Open will always remain dear to Rahm’s heart. He has a professional connection and, above all, a very special personal one with the Torrey Pines course.
It’s a big part of his and his wife Kelly’s lives.
Additionally, Jon is back in action this week after one more week’s break than anticipated. He had planned on playing in the American Express, but some minor issues in the gym that were bothering him a few days before heading to Palm Springs are what made him choose otherwise, to rest up and save his energy for the following week.
That being said, apart from the happiness and joy that this tournament always brings Rahm, where he landed his first ever victory as a professional in 2017, there’s the expectations about how he’ll perform and how his game will evolve with the new Callaway equipment.
And there’s more important news regarding this topic. After the work that was done in the Odyssey factory following the Sentry Open, Jon is going to break in the new putter at Torrey Pines. It’s very similar in design to the Spider by TaylorMade, with which he won the Farmers, and which he used throughout the majority of his professional career. The major change is that visually, on the part above the head of the club, instead of perpendicular stripes, there are two balls, a classic design for this brand.
