What’s In The Bag: Brooks Koepka


What’s in the bag of five-time Major champion and LIV Golf star Brooks Koepka.

Today’s Golfer’s ‘What’s In The Bag’ insight is brought to you in association with Fujikura.

Brooks Koepka was one of the many Nike Tour staff who found themselves without an equipment deal when the company stopped making clubs in 2016.

For several years, he chose not to get tied into another full-bag contract and instead picked the clubs he wanted to play from a variety of manufacturers, before signing with Srixon and Cleveland in 2021.

Four-time Major champion Brooks Koepka is a Srixon and Cleveland Golf Tour Staff player.

“I’ve been an equipment free agent for the past few years, so it will be fun to be involved with a company on a daily basis and be able to contribute to the development of their future equipment,” said Koepka, on signing the deal. “I put the ZX7 irons in play in January and it is the best iron I have played on Tour. ”

Brooks Koepka will continue to use his Nike Vapor Pro 3-iron.

He joined the brand’s impressive line-up of tour players which includes fellow Major champions Hideki Matsuyama, Shane Lowry, Graeme McDowell, Keegan Bradley, Inbee Park, Minjee Lee, and Hannah Green.

Koepka’s clubs are still an interesting mix, though, with one or two from other manufacturers, including a couple of pretty old clubs.

Let’s take a look at what club’s Five-time major champion and Ryder Cup star Brooks Koepka has in his Srixon golf bag in 2023.

What driver does Brooks Koepka use?

Brooks Koepka uses a Srixon ZX5 MKII LS driver (10.5°) with a Mitsubishi Diamana D Limited 70 TX, 44.5 inches, tipped 1-inch shaft

Price: £499.00/$499.00



In the hands of our test pro, just six yards of carry distance separated the ZX5 and our very longest drivers, plus the model produced our second smallest left-to-right dispersion (31.9 yards), so it will perform on the course.

It looks lovely, sounds great and there’s a touch of high launch draw bias built in. We’d play it, but in tough economic times, the price tag is hard to justify, especially knowing there are other excellent drivers out there for less.

What fairway wood does Brooks Koepka use?

Brooks Koepka uses a TaylorMade M2 Tour HL Fairway Wood (16.5°) with a Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 80 TX shaft


Brooks Koepka clearly is a huge fan of the club and we were unsure when he was switching to Srixon whether he would use the fairway woods. Clearly, he preferred to stick with the 16.5° TaylorMade M2 Tour HL model, which is a club he has had numerous successes with and is why it has been featured in his bag now for many years.

Fast, far and forgiving say TaylorMade. Everything from previous iterations of the M2 was stripped back to bare bones and improved for the 2017 model.

The carbon crown’s reduced to six layers, there’s a longer and more flexible speed pocket and a lighter fluted hosel all to increase ball speed, carry distance, and forgiveness. There’s also some serious “geocoustic” engineering to tune sound and feel.

What irons does Brooks Koepka use?

Brooks Koepka is a golfer that like to stick to what he knows. The 2017 M2 fairway wood was followed by the 2016 edition of the Nike Vapor Pro 3-iron.

No wonder he is a fan of the trusted Nike club, it has seen him lift five major titles in a dominant spell of his career.

He has replaced it a few times over the years but for all his major successes it has featured and we can't see it leaving any time soon.

Brooks Koepka uses Srixon ZX7 MKII Irons (4-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts


The ZX7, with its very Japanese high-toe shape, is a simple but very classy beauty – and that’s usually what ‘players’ ask for. There’s nothing to not like about this sleek but powerful model.

Our pro was really impressed by the feel and feedback from the ZX7, and the data it produced against its peers (see our 2021 Players’ Iron Test here)is undeniably impressive. A 7-iron carry of 168 yards was our third longest in testing, but more impressive than that was how the ZX7 combined that power with only dropping seven yards (4.2%) between on- and off-center strikes (third best), which really helps consistency and scoring on the course.

What wedges does Brooks Koepka use?

Brooks Koepka uses Cleveland RTX ZipCore Tour Rack Raw Wedges (46°, 52°, 56°, 60°) with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts

Best for consistency and feel
Price: £139.00/$149.99 per club



Part of Koepka's deal with Srixon was to game Cleveland wedges. It seems to be he is enjoying them having had great success with including a major victory at the 2023 PGA Championship.

Around the green is perhaps the area of Bradley's game that lacks consistency. His statistics following victory at the Travelers show he performs as well as anyone from the fringe, however, he sits considerably below the field average when it comes to sand saves and scrambling from the rough, getting up and down only 45% and 51% of the time respectively.

Cleveland are wedge legends, and the ZipCore is just the most recent step in a very long line of brilliant models. You really can’t go wrong with them, we love the ZipCore’s straight leading edge and the brilliant feel and feedback. Each groove is closer (7.4%) so there are two more grooves per face. The grooves are also deeper than ever so they’re better at channeling away debris, as well as being 11% sharper to maximize spin on every single shot.

What golf ball does Brooks Koepka use?

Brooks Koepka uses the Srixon Z-Star Diamond Golf Ball

Best premium balls for durability
Price: £40.47


Srixon is perhaps most well-known within golf for its amateur range of golf balls. However, they do make some incredible tour standard golf balls as well. The Z-Star XV golf balls are aimed at golfers with quick swing speeds, mainly targeting tour players and better players. Perhaps Srixon's victory came at the 2021 Masters where Hideki Matsuyama won playing the Z-Star XV.

Arguably the biggest star playing a Srixon golf ball is 2023 PGA champion Brooks Koepka, who plays the Z-Star Diamond which is another outstanding premium Srixon golf ball. The Z-Star XV golf balls are capable of competing with any of the best tour standard golf balls. If you struggle to see your golf balls or line up your putts you can purchase the Divide which is half yellow, half white - only available in the Z-Star.

What golf shoes does Brooks Koepka wear?

Brooks Koepka wears the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour Next% Golf Shoes

The most responsive spiked golf shoe
Price: £159.95 / $160



Nike have a huge band of tour stars wearing their shoes, so it's no surprise they turn to them for feedback when designing new models. Brooks Koepka played a big role in the creation of the Air Zoom Infinity Tour Next%

We weren't alone in feeling the previous iteration was too narrow for our feet. Nike have listened and increased the overall volume to give your foot more room, which means this will have more mass market appeal.

A new plush padded collar at the ankle helps increase support and cushioning while reducing heel slip. The shoe now sports two Zoom air units and customer feedback has seen new spikes integrated into the heel and toe for much-improved traction.

There have also been improvements to the upper which is both breathable and durable. We also found it very easy to clean, which is a key factor in our reviews.

See how the Air Zoom Infinity Tour Next% compares to the best Nike golf shoes.


  • Air bubble
  • Soft underfoot
  • Great grip


  • Not the easiest to keep clean

At the 2023 Masters, 39.1% of players used Fujikura driver shafts, with five of the final Top 10 choosing the brand’s super stable models.

In short Fujikura shafts are the shaft of choice of the world’s very best players.
