Brooks Koepka is competing in the 2019 Honda Classic through this weekend, so we wanted to take a look at What’s in the Bag.
He has won the past two United States Opens and is the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year. Being a Free Agent Pro, Koepka’s bag is quite the variety pack.
Let’s get right into it. A What’s in the Bag? Featuring Brooks Koepka.
Brooks seems like a pretty cool dude,
but what’s he swingin’?
DRIVER: TaylorMade M5 9.5, Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 70TX shaft
Available at GolfHQ.com for $549.99
If you were a fan of TaylorMade’s Twist Face seen in the M3 and M4, you’re going to love their Speed Injected version.
The Twist Face Technology has been carried over to the M5 with one major change.
Each head is injected with tuning resin to optimize the coefficient of restitution, (how much energy is transferred when the club impacts the ball)
to deliver maximum distance and speed for players.
Fun Fact: Brooks’ average drive range of 2018 was 313 yards.
The M5 Driver features an adjustable weight that gives players the ability to fine-tune their driver. Fancy.
The Control Draw, Fade Settings, and custom Launch Angles will all play a part in maximizing your distance and precision.

3 WOOD: TaylorMade M2 Tour HL, Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 80TX Shaft
Same Letter. Better Everything.
The 2017 TaylorMade M2 Driver achieves that ‘next level of distance and forgiveness’ with Geocoustic™ Advanced Sole Shaping. Its heavy fixed back-weight stages the CG extremely low creating a blend of high-speed and high-launch. In design, the multi-material construction remains true, finished with advanced geometric cuts.
‘The M2 is equipped with a new 4° Aluminum Loft Sleeve featuring 12 easily adjustable settings. M2 also comes stock with a Fujikura Pro XLR8 56 (high launch), available in A, R, S and X flexes along with a new dual-texture 360 performance grip for great feel throughout the swing.’

WEDGES: Titleist Vokey SM7 52 and 56
Available at GolfHQ.com for $149.99
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take the time to appreciate the Jet Black version of the Titleist Vokey SM7 Wedges. I’ve never been a big fan of the classic steel or chrome finished unless it’s brushed. These go hard.
What do you think?
‘More Confidence. Lower Scores.’ Put the highest level of wedge performance in your hands.

-Nothing Spins like a Vokey
-Grind Fits for You
PUTTER: Titleist Scotty Cameron T10 Select Newport
Available at GolfHQ.com for $399.99
The Scotty Cameron Select 2018 Newport Putter has a topline radius that’s been smoothed over giving a thinner, sleeker look. The mild adjustments to the plumbing neck angle provides an uninterrupted view of the face from toe to heel. Every angle of this blade putter has been sculpted to provide a sleek, soothing, and clean appearance.
“The putters were super hard, but they had a soft feel from the ball that people played back then,” Cameron said. “I don’t like to use plastics or rubber in putters because in the sun those materials can get crispy and crack, so I looked up some of the softest metal-type materials and it turned out to be tellurium copper. It’s made from 12 different alloys to create this super-soft copper. No one at the time had heard of tellurium, but everyone was into beryllium nickel and beryllium copper, so I took the name Teryllium and called and got a trademark on it.”
