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.
"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."
