Five Questions About New World No. 1 Jon Rahm’s Equipment

When Jon Rahm became world No. 1 this weekend with his three-stroke triumph at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, it should have surprised no one.

Rahm has been a world-class player since his junior days, holding the top spot in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for a record 60 weeks. Now he’s a four-time winner on the PGA TOUR and currently eighth in the FedExCup standings. It was only a matter of time until he reached an achievement that even his fellow Arizona State Sun Devil Phil Mickelson has yet to reach: the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking.

He finished with a 15-foot birdie for a 1-under 71, leaving him five shots behind Tony Finau in the Memorial, and he walked to the side of the green and stood with Rory McIlroy, chatting briefly before they nudged their elbows toward one another without touching.

It was a reasonable return.
