Titleiest brand ambassador Brooks Koepka has been awarded ‘Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year’ by the European Tour. It completes a strong performance in 2014 for the American after he finished eighth on the Race to Dubai and also secured his maiden European Tour title at the Turkish Airlines Open, as well as recording four further top ten finishes.
Koepka broke through on to the European Tour in 2013 after a trio of victories on the Challenge Tour secured him an automatic promotion to Europe’s biggest tour. Koepka quickly made his mark with a tied third place finish at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, before gaining confidence on the global stage to finish tied fourth at the US Open. He also recorded impressive finishes at the USPGA Championship, where he tied for 15th, and the Omega European Masters, where he finished tied for third, before entering the winners’ circle at the Turkish Airlines Open in November, the penultimate event of the 2014 season.
Koepka used Titleist equipment in his bag including the Pro V1x golf ball, 915D2 driver, 915F fairway metal, CB and MB irons, Vokey Design SM5 pitching, gap and lob wedges, and Scotty Cameron GoLo 5 putter. His victory at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal marked the first week that he had played the new 915D2 driver in competitive play.
