Brooks Koepka is a controversial golfer, having made that switch to the LIV Tour. Brooks is a strong guy who spends much time focusing on short game and consistency. When you have his kind of power, precision becomes what is most important.
What clubs does he use to help with this?
Koepka is mostly a Srixon/Cleveland guy; there are a few surprises in this bag that we wanted to show you.
Golfers change their clubs from time to time, but in this article, we will look at Brooks Koepka’s “What’s in the Bag” (WITB) as of November, revealing the equipment that makes winning on the PGA Tour look easy!

Let’s take a look inside Koepka’s golf bag!
Brooks Koepka: What’s In The Bag November
Brooks Koepka WITB November: Driver
Brooks Koepka has an average driving distance over 325 yards. We know that power is certainly not his problem. Brooks has the Srixon ZX5 LS MK II in the bag. As high quality as the Srixon golf clubs are, they don’t have as many tour players under contract as other brands.
The ZX5 LS MK II is a low spin version designed to help control the ball a little more, and produce a stronger roll out once your drive hits the fairway.
It seems as though Brooks keeps this driver set at 10.5 degrees which is a little high when compared to other tour players. This is one of those little facts that show us how important using a launch monitor truly is.
Koepka also carries a TaylorMade M2 Tour HL set at 16.5 degrees. This is a mix between a 3 wood and a 4 wood. The M2 is certainly not the latest release from TaylorMade and that makes is surprising to see it in a tour pro’s bag.
Don’t these guys just want the latest and the best?
Even with the new technology coming to market, sometimes a club just suits your game, and it deserves a spot in the bag. The M2 was easy to hit, produced a lot of power, and was a top-selling fairway wood for TaylorMade for a long time.
When it comes to golf shafts Koepka has a Mitsubishi Diamana D Limited 70 TX in the driver. In the fairway wood, a Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 80 TX.
Notice the consistency here, just a little extra weight in the TaylorMade M2 to help with shots that are being hit off the ground as opposed to off a tee. The heavier shaft can improve turf interaction a bit and increase total distance. (As long as you have speed like Brooks!)
Brooks Koekpa WITB November: Irons
The irons Koekpa uses are the Srixon ZX7 MK II in the 4-9. Brooks’ iron selection really comes as no surprise being a Srixon staff player. The ZX7 MK II are great-looking golf irons with a pure feel.
ZX7 irons have a mid trajectory and are built to be workable. We were a little surprised that Koepka hasn’t done a mixed set with the Z Forged II irons in the shorter clubs, but maybe he still likes that little bit of forgiveness the ZX7 offers.
The surprise club in Koepka’s bag is the 3 iron. It’s a Nike Vapor Pro 3, a club that is certainly not manufactured anymore. Koepka isn’t a hybrid guy so this Nike Vapor Pro 3 bridges the gap between the irons and the 3 wood.
All of the irons in Koepka’s bag have a True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shaft. However, in the Nike Vapor 3, he has a Fujikura Pro Tour Spec 95 X. The difference here is to just give him a little more speed with the longer length and lower loft of the Nike.
Brooks is a high swing speed player that can really turn it on when it comes to precision, it’s easy to see how this setup works for his game. If you have not yet tried the Srixon golf irons there are models for every handicap range, but they all have impressive feel throughout the set.
Brooks Koepka WITB November: Wedges
Srixon and Cleveland are manufactured by the same company, so the RTX wedges were really not a surprise pick for Koepka. He plays with the Cleveland RTX ZipCore Tour Rack Raw in the 46 degree and moves to the RTX6 Zip Core Tour Rack in the 52, 56 and 60 degree.
All of the wedges are mid bounce except for the 60 degree that is low bounce. The RTX Tour Rack Raw design encourages rusting on the clubface. Many players believe this extra rusting improves overall spin rates over time.
Rust or no rust, the RTX wedges offer a lot of spin.
The wedges all feature True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts. The 46 which functions like the pitching wedge for Brooks has the X100 shaft to match the rest of the irons. The other three wedges all feature the S400.
Having a slightly softer shaft in the higher lofted wedges is quite common among PGA Tour players.
Brooks Koepka WITB November: Putters
The putter that Brooks uses is the Scotty Cameron Teryllium TNP2. The Teryllium TNP2 is a blade style putter designed with precision and pure feel in mind. You may have a hard time finding the Scotty Cameron Teryllium, this one was made specifically for Brooks and it’s been in the bag for a while.
However, if you like this style or design, the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 could be a good alternative option.
What Can We Learn From Brooks Koepka Golf Bag
One of the most important things about analyzing professional golfers’ clubs is to see not just the clubs they are playing with but why their golf bag is set up the way it is. Some players choose one brand throughout the bag, and others mix it up a little Brooks. Here’s what we can learn from Brooks Koepkas golf bag.
- If you have a club that you love don’t be afraid to keep it in the bag. You may find that even after testing out new products, your 3 wood or your 4 hybrid still fits you perfectly. Don’t feel pressured to change just because new equipment is on the market.
- Pay very close attention to shaft consistency between the driver and fairway wood. In addition, do the same between the irons and the wedges. When making these transitions between clubs, you want the feel and consistency in the shot to be about the same.
- Many golfers like high bounce in their highest lofted wedges. The bounce adds a little forgiveness and can help with those thick lies around the greens. Brooks goes for low bounce because of the tight lies he finds on the PGA Tour, keep this in mind if you play from tight lies.
- Brooks has his driver shaft tipped one inch. This means that the shaft is going to play a little stiffer. The shaft tipping also makes it a little easier for Brooks to feel the clubhead and manipulate it as he sees fit through impact.
