Golf’s most high-profile equipment free agent is a free agent no more. Srixon and Cleveland Golf announced today that Brooks Koepka has joined its TOUR staff. As part of the new deal, the four-time major champion will play a Srixon driver and irons, Cleveland wedges and a Srixon golf ball.
Koepka will also carry a Srixon staff bag. The 31-year-old began working with Srixon’s TOUR Department earlier this year and played the brand's ZX7 irons throughout the 2021 PGA TOUR season. He won the Waste Management Phoenix Open with the irons in play.
Brooks Koepka, statements
“I am very excited to join my good friends Shane Lowry, Graeme McDowell and Hideki Matsuyama as a Srixon and Cleveland Golf TOUR staff member,” Koepka said. “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.
I put the ZX7 Irons in play in January and it is the best iron I have played on TOUR. I look forward to kicking off our new partnership this week in Las Vegas”. Speaking on the Koepka signing, Rodney McDonald, Vice President of Tour Operations at Srixon, said: “We’re extremely proud to have Brooks come on board as our newest staff member.
He’s one of the best players in the world and brings his major championship pedigree and validation to our brands. We’re excited for Brooks to join the Srixon and Cleveland Golf family and look forward to supporting him out on TOUR”.
Koepka will make his debut as a member of Team Srixon/Cleveland at Capital One’s The Match on November 26th against Bryson DeChambeau. A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty.
This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the "secret weapon" of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.
"He's a good guy, he's been through a lot as a sportsman and he's the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.
" These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed 'the Baltimore Shark', important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.
I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value." This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
