    Cool story, was a lot of fun to learn about.
    This makes me happy for Mizuno. Thanks for sharing the details on that.

    I know almost nothing about equipment contracts for those guys, but I've always wondered why more tour pros don't play Mizuno clubs. I love their irons.

    Great win for BK and I think his bag is awesome! Will be interesting to see if he can pull off a couple more wins this year.

    I have to say that I thought it was a bit of a fluke when he won last year. The course played much easier at Erin hills last year and I put too much weight on the difficulty of the course and not enough on the Brooks' skills. This year he proved me way wrong and he accomplished a great milestone at a tough course.

    I think my favorite part is that he still uses the Nike staff bag.

    I find it somewhat ironic that the two major winners so far this year, are playing mixed bags with clubs that work for them with no equipment contracts. Just playing what works...

    It is a pretty cool storyline so far. It's probably just a coincidence but it makes you wonder how much (if any) performance Tour Players give up when they commit to one brand.

    Oh you're right it's probably making a mountain out of a mole hill, but still fun to ponder.

    Then again as I read the stories of folks getting full bag fittings here at brand agnostic locations, not many of them end up with a full bag of one OEM.

    Just wanted to bump this and make sure we recognize the REAL story of the US Open. Back to back US Open winner, Brooks Koepka.

    Such a shame Phil, the USGA, and heckling fans are the lead stories after such a feat Brooks pulled off.
