Golf’s most high-profile equipment-free agent is no longer a free agent. Srixon and Cleveland Golf announced today that Brooks Koepka has joined their TOUR staff.
As part of the new deal, the four-time major champion will play a Srixon driver and iron, Cleveland wedges and a Srixon golf ball. Koepka will also bring a Srixon staff bag.
The 31-year-old began working on Srixon’s TOUR division earlier this year, playing the brand’s ZX7 iron throughout the 2021 PGA TOUR season. He won the Waste Management Phoenix Open with the irons in play.
“I’m very excited to join my good friends Shane Lowry, Graeme McDowell and Hideki Matsuyama as Srixon and Cleveland Golf TOUR staff,” Koepka said. “I have been equipment-free for the last few years, so it will be fun to be involved in a company on a daily basis and be able to contribute to the development of their future equipment.
“I put the ZX7 Irons into play in January and it’s the best iron I’ve played on TOUR. I’m looking forward to kicking off our new partnership this week in Las Vegas.”
Rodney McDonald, Vice President of Tour Operations at Srixon, spoke of the Koepka signature: “We are extremely proud to have Brooks on board as our newest employee. He is one of the best players in the world and brings his big pedigree and “validation for our brands. We’re pleased that Brooks is joining the Srixon and Cleveland Golf family and look forward to supporting him on TOUR.”
Koepka will make his debut as a member of Team Srixon / Cleveland at Capital One’s The Match on Nov. 26 against Bryson DeChambeau.
