The clubs Koepka used to win the PGA Championship

Were there any changes to the clubs that won the US Open a couple of months ago? Equipment editor James Savage takes a look

Brooks Koepka relied on the exact same clubs which saw him land back-to-back US Opens in June.

Well, not exactly as Koepka cracked the face of his TaylorMade M3 driver at the start of the week so was forced to put a brand new one into play.

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 player with Patrick Reed and Francesco Molinari also tasting major success.

He won his first US Open title the the TaylorMade M2 driver but has since switched to the M3 – the same change made by Tiger Woods who finished second at Bellerive.

Interestingly he Kopeka 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 – the low-spinning TaylorMade M2 Tour.

I actually asked Kopeka 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 here 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 in all of his three major wins? There’s no doubt it was his Scotty Cameron Newport 2.
