  • Cobra Golf at the LPGA Kia Classic

    It’s a big week for the LPGA Tour and Cobra Golf as the Kia Classic kicks off at the Industry Hills Golf Club, just outside of Los Angeles, CA.  The 72-hole tournament starts this Thursday, March 24th and features one of the strongest fields of the year.  The top 11 players from the current Rolex rankings and 77 of the top-80 from the 2010 LPGA Official Money List will be represented.

    Cobra Golf Staff Pros Anna Nordqvist, Blair O’Neal, Lee-Anne Pace and Jeehae Lee are all in the field this week and look to join the 2011 winners circle.  Anna recently caught up with LPGA.com to discuss her goals for the 2011 season and her offseason preparation.  Be sure to check out the interview.  O’Neal, one of the longest hitters in women’s golf, is playing this week on a sponsor’s exemption she received from winning the MVP award on Golf Channel’s Big Break: Dominican Republic.  You may also have seen her recently in Cobra’s ad run in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

  • Ian at the Cadillac Championship at Doral

    Doral's Blue Monster showed its teeth early Thursday morning when a flash storm rolled through the Miami area.  Play was delayed as wind gusts reached up to 52mph; causing two TV towers to be knocked over and one grandstand to be toppled.  Cobra Golf staff pro, Ian Poulter, will try to navigate his way around the treacherous Blue Monster as he searches for his first victory of the year.  Check out behind the scene photos of Ian earlier in the week as he prepared for the Cadillac Championship. 

  • Poulter Puts the New Baffler Rail Hybrid in the Bag

    Ever wonder what the process is like when a tour player adds new clubs to their bag or changes their set composition? Golf clubs, like relationships, are very personal matters. Some tour players regularly tinker with their bag make-up while others will have the same set in their possession for years. Cobra staff pro, Ian Poulter, happens to be the type who is very meticulous about this clubs. Ian does not change clubs often; in fact he has played the same five wood (a competitor of Cobra’s) for over four years. During a recent visit from our Tour Service manager, Ben Schomin, Ian became enamored with the new Baffler Rail Hybrid. Although he had a good run with his 5-wood, he sometimes struggled with consistency. After analyzing over 100 shots on the Trackman system, Ian knew that he had found a home for the Baffler Rail 2 Hybrid. 

    With his new Baffler Rail Hybrid with custom Matrix Radix 8X shaft, Ian is able to carry shots 230-235 yards with much more accuracy, more consistent ball flight, and launch numbers. In addition, Ian finds the Baffler Rail to be more versatile then his 5-wood option. He can ease off it, hit it farther, and play it off a variety of different types of lies. 

    This club could especially come in handy at the 13th hole at a particular course in Augusta, GA...
