  • Nike Vapor Pro – 3 Iron,

  • Srixon ZX7 – 4 Iron – PW

TaylorMade SIM2 Driver – 9.5 degrees

Mitsubishi Diamana shaft

 Selling Points

  • Split Mass Weighting
  • Forged Ring
  • Asymmetrical speed design

Key Features

The unique shape of this driver belies the speed it provides. TaylorMade did their homework in regards to aerodynamics and club head speed when they designed the head of their SIM 2 driver. The result is a club that swings incredibly fast and produces amazing ball speed.

And for a tour-grade driver, this club is exceptionally forgiving. The twist face technology punctuated by the curvature of the face provides a wider margin of error for shots near the heal and toe while generating more ball speed for these less than perfect strikes.

You can get the SIM 2 MAX driver for more forgiveness with a Tensei AV Raw Blue shaft or a Project X HZRDUS Smoke RDX  shaft. And if you’re wondering, Brooks plays his with a Mitsubishi Diamana shaft.

Pros:

  • Rear-mounted 16g weighting
  • Adjustable weight
  • Great head speed

Cons:

  • Only comes in 10.5 loft
  • Awkward head shape

Overall Score: 98/100

TaylorMade M2 Tour HL 3 Wood

 Selling Points

  • Geocoustic technology
  • Speed Pocket
  • Multi-layer composite carbon crown

Key Features

This 3 wood swings like a dream. You have probably heard of the inverted cone technology that TaylorMade pioneered. But for the M2 series, they lengthened the cone and the Speed Pocket to produce a lower center of gravity.

The M2 3 wood launches high and inhibits spin. And the external sound ribs give this fairway wood a deep, satisfying snap on dead-center shots. As of the time of this writing, the M2 fairway comes stock with a TM REAX 65 – X, S TM REAX 55 – R, A shaft and Brooks plays his with a Mitsubishi Diamana.

Pros:

  • Available in 15, 16.5, 18 and 21 degree loft versions
  • Sounds amazing
  • Plays long

Cons:

  • Low profile
  • Easy to shank

Overall Score: 98/100

Nike Vapor Pro – 3 Iron

 Selling Points

  • Weighted toe
  • Central CG
  • Inverted triangle weighted rear

Key Features

This can definitely be described as a muscle back iron but not in the way you may be thinking. The weighting is placed around the triangle shape in the back as opposed to inside the triangle. This shifts the center of gravity to a more forgiving spot on the blade.

Which is helpful because these irons get narrower the shorter they get. But maybe that’s why Brooks only plays the 3 iron in this set. But the thinner blades do look more pleasing to the player squaring up.

Brooks plays his with a Fujikura Pro Tour Spec Shaft but the entire set is available in a number of different shaft options.

Pros:

  • Blade/cavity back hybrid
  • Great fro advanced players
  • 1025 carbon steel construction

 

Cons:

  • Really not good for beginners
  • The short irons lose their forged feel

Overall Score: 98/100

Srixon ZX7 – 4 Iron – PW

 Selling Points

  • Weighted sweet spot
  • Progressive groove design
  • Multi-material design

Key Features

These are great performance irons and its easy to see why they take up most of Brooks’s iron arsenal. The progressive groove design which makes the grooves on the shorter irons narrower and deeper give you enhance spin control when you would need it most.

But the longer irons feature shallower and more blunted grooves to enhance distance. These irons come stock with NIPPON N.S. PRO MODUS3 TOUR 120 shafts while Brooks plays his with a True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue.

Pros:

  • Great performance from fairway to approaches
  • Great turf interaction
  • 20-51 loft (3-AW)

 

Cons:

  • Not very forgiving
  • Low launch

Overall Score: 98/100

Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedges 

 Selling Points

  • Tour validated grinds
  • Advanced SM8 grooves
  • Precise tungsten weighting

Key Features

If getting under the ball on tough lies is a problem for you then you should definitely try out a Vokey SM8. The deep curve of the blade coupled with the strategic Tungsten weighting at the tow make these wedges super easy to launch high and with more than adequate spin.

There are even micro grooves cut between the main grooves to give advanced players ridiculous control over greenside spin. The SM8’s are available in a wide variety of lofts ranging from 58-62. The stock shaft is a True Temper Dynamic Gold which is the same shaft that Brooks uses.

Pros:

  • Many grinds to choose from
  • Progressive CG
  • Very user-friendly

Cons:

  • Narrow faces
  • The number of grind and loft options can be a bit overwhelming

Overall Score: 98/100

Scotty Cameron Tour Only T10 Select Newport 2

 Selling Points

  • Advanced tracking
  • Vernier Hyper Acuity
  • Multi-material shaft

Key Features

It seems like everyone is playing Callaway’s Odyssey putters these days. And surprisingly, these putters seem to be as beneficial to casual players as they are to amateurs and professionals – thanks mainly to the super-easy alignment system.

You can get the Scotty Cameron Tour Only T10 Select Newport 2 with a pistol or oversized Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip. It’s also available in right and left-hand orientations.

Pros:

  • Lots of head options
  • Good accuracy
  • Good feel

Cons:

  • A bit heavy
  • The head shapes can take some getting used to

Overall Score: 98/100

Titleist Pro V1x Ball

 Selling Points

  • Cast urethane elastomer cover
  • Dual core
  • 348 Tetrahedral dimples

Key Features

This ball would be a good fit for any player that wants higher flight and more spin. The short and long game spin on these balls is impeccable and the firm feel allows for more consistent flight. Plus they can be fitted for pretty much any player.

Pros:

  • Long carries
  • Great drop and stop
  • High flight

Cons:

  • Not for slow swing speeds
  • Not everyone will love the firm feel

Overall Score: 98/100

Brooks Koepka’s Wife

Brooks is married to 32 year-old model, actress, social media influencer and former Miss Georgia Teen USA (2007) Jena Sims. Jena is mostly known for her various roles in b movies like Sharknado 5: Global Swarming which is a tongue-in-cheek action romper about sharks terrorizing people on land.
