Are these guys smart and playing the clubs that they like the most instead of being locked into a specific club supplier?

 

Or just hard to find sponsorship?

 

 

 

Brooks Koepka won the 2018 U.S. Open, Tommy Fleetwood was the runner-up after shooting a final-round 63 and Patrick Reed finished fourth … and none of them has a golf equipment endorsement. Each of them also has at least one Nike club in his bag, even though the company stopped making clubs and balls nearly two years ago. Fleetwood still uses Nike fairway woods and irons, while Koepka uses an old Nike driving iron and Reed plays a Nike 3-wood. Here is all the gear Koepka used to defend his U.S. Open title:
  • DRIVER: TaylorMade M4 (9.5 degrees), with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 70 TX shaft
  • FAIRWAY WOOD: TaylorMade M2 Tour HL (16.5 degrees), with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 80 TX shaft
  • IRONS: Nike Vapor Fly Pro (3), with Fujikura Pro 95 Tour Spec shaft; Mizuno JPX-900 Tour (4-PW), with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts, PW with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shaft
  • WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design SM7 Raw (52, 56 degrees), SM7 Raw TVD (60 degrees), with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts
  • PUTTER: Scotty Cameron T10 Select Newport 2 prototype
  • BALL: Titleist Pro V1x
  • GRIPS: Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord Midsize

i think these guys have enough cash in the bank that they don't need to take the cash on offer to play exclusively a single brand.  They're comfortable with the equipment they have obviously.  They would have no problem at all getting a club endorsement if they wanted one.  There's no doubt their agents are fielding multiple calls from the manufacturers because both are very marketable players with fantastic records the last two years.

I'm going to say they are smart.
