ince Nike discontinued selling golf equipment and balls in 2016, Brooks Koepka has been one of the most sought-after equipment free agents on the market. The American is recognized as a strong competitor and for playing his best golf on the biggest platforms, something that businesses love to be associated with. He is a former world No. 1 and winner of two US Opens and two PGA Championships.
Because Srixon revealed on Monday that it had signed Koepka, 31, to an endorsement contract, the first sentence of the final paragraph is written in the past tense.
In a press release, he remarked, “I am very thrilled to join my dear friends Shane Lowry, Graeme McDowell, and Hideki Matsuyama as a Srixon and Cleveland Golf Tour Staff member.” “I’ve been an equipment free agent for a few years, so it’ll be interesting to be involved with a company on a daily basis and contribute to the development of their future equipment.”
The terms of Koepka’s contract were not published, but he will now be compensated for using a Srixon driver and irons, Cleveland wedges, a Srixon ball, and carrying a Srixon bag.
Rodney McDonald, Srixon’s vice president of tour operations, said, “We’re incredibly thrilled to have Brooks come on board as our newest staff member.” “He’s one of the top players in the world, and he adds legitimacy to our brands with his major title background.” We’re thrilled to have Brooks join the Srixon and Cleveland Golf family, and we’re looking forward to cheering him on on the golf course.”
Srixon ZX5 driver (from $499 at Carl’s Golfland and Dick’s), Srixon ZX7 irons (from $162.50 at Carl’s Golfland and Dick’s), and Cleveland RTX ZipCore Tour Rack wedges (from $149 at Carl’s Golfland and Dick’s) are among the clubs Koepka expects to utilize. It’s expected that he’ll also use a new Srixon Z-STAR prototype ball.
