Winner’s Bag: Brooks Koepka’s mixed bag at the 2018 CJ Cup
With a win in South Korea over the weekend, Brooks Koepka once again took over the top spot in the World Rankings.
Koepka’s final round 64 yielded a 21-under-par total and a four-stroke victory over Gary Woodland, who also lit up The Club at Nine Bridges on Jeju Island with a final-round 63.
For his trouble, Koepka took home a check for $1,710,000 and 500 FedEx points. The new World No. 1 still does not have an equipment contract and played the same mixed bag in his latest win as he did at the PGA Championship:
Driver: TaylorMade M3 (9.5°) with Mitsubishi Diamana shaft
Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M2 Tour (16.5°) with Mitsubishi Diamana shaft
Irons: Nike Vapor Fly Pro (3) with Fujikura Pro Tour Spec shaft, Mizuno JPX-900 Tour (4-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts
Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM7 (52°, 56°, 60°) with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts
Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2 T10
Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
Koepka isn’t the only player to enjoy success with a mixed bag this year — in fact, all four major-winners in 2018 (Patrick Reed, Edoardo Molinari and Koepka twice) won their titles with a range of brands in their bags. This is an excellent lesson for everyday golfers. Experiment with a variety of clubs from a variety of brands until you find what works for your game. Need some help?
