WITB: Brooks Koepka – CJ CupOctober 21, 2018 Golf Equipment
Equipment editor James Savage takes a look at the clubs in the bag of the new World No. 1
Brooks Koepka reached the summit of the world rankings with his win in South Korea.
Koepka is actually a free agent when it comes to his golf clubs so has a free run at all the equipment on the market.
He made it a clean sweep in 2018 for non-contracted players with Patrick Reed and Francesco Molinari also tasting major success.
Interestingly Koepka puts both weights back to make the driver as forgiving as possible.
His fairway wood is the exact same model he used for both of his US Open wins and PGA Championship victory – the low-spinning TaylorMade M2 Tour.
There is still the one Nike club in the bag which is a powerful Vapor Fly Pro driving iron.
I actually asked Koepka about this club at The Open at Royal Birkdale last year and he said he fell in love with it as soon as he hit it.
Then he moves into the Mizuno JPX900 Tour irons which were actually created with Koepka in mind.
You have to read our story on that to believe it.
Koepka – who was a Titleist staff player before moving to Nike – plays the new Vokey SM7 wedges.
And the best club for Koepka during his rise to the No. 1 spot? There’s no doubt it was his Scotty Cameron Newport 2.
He plays the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball.
