Brooks Koepka has switched drivers from Nike to a TaylorMade M2


Brooks Koepka is seeing his first action in what could be a lengthy Ryder Cup career on Friday at Hazeltine National, and the long-hitting 2015 Phoenix Open winner is doing it with a new driver in the bag.

This week, Koepka debuts with a TaylorMade M2 driver in his bag, replacing the Nike Vapor Pro he had been using previously. Koepka, a Nike staffer, now has the go-ahead to find a new equipment sponsor after Nike announced following the PGA Championship that it was winding down its business of making golf clubs, balls and bags.

There's no word if Koepka will sign an endorsement deal with TaylorMade.

Koepka's first drive in the Friday afternoon session went 330 yards, setting up a flip wedge that he then hit to about 2 feet for a kick-in birdie. So, we'd say, so far, so good with the M2.
