  • The Cobra Sapphire Set - A Perfect Fit for Ladies Looking to Improve Their Game

    Cobra recently released our new Women's Sapphire Set. This set is designed for mid to high handicap golfers as well as the ladies looking to step onto the course for the first time.

    The Sapphire Set is a complete, pre-customized set that is perfect for those women looking to improve their game with a stylish set of clubs. The set includes a titanium driver, 3-fairway, 5-hybrid, 7-hybrid, 8-iron, 9-iron, pitching wedge, gap wedge, sand wedge, putter, cart bag and accessories pouch. Not only does the set come with everything you need for the course, but it gives you options to represent your individual style on the course. One set comes with pink detailing and an argyle shaft graphic, while the other features blue details and a blue shaft graphic. Each set offers the same performance benefits, but it's up to you choose which style best suits you.

    The technology behind the Sapphire Set is what makes it the ideal set for ladies just starting out or with mid to high handicaps. The driver features Cobra's infamous 9 Point Face TechnologyTM, which (in basic terms) means the shape and material of the face creates 9 points across a massive Sweet Zone® that helps generate increased ball speed, even if you don't strike the ball in the center of the face. The Baffler style hybrids feature a four way rail sole along the bottom of the club, helping you reduce the amount of club that comes in contact with the ground for maximum forgiveness. The irons and hybrids also feature Consistent Distance Gapping which provides consistent and reliable distances from one club to the next, giving you more consistency and confidence in your game.

  • One-of-a-kind U.S. Open Staff Bag Could Be Yours

    The 111th U.S. Open kicks off this week at the famed Congressional Golf Course in Bethesda, Md. It will be a grueling test of golf for the world’s best as the course measures 7, 574 yards, the second longest in U.S. Open history.

    Cobra staff pro Ian Poulter is no stranger to playing tough golf courses well, and his game is in good form coming off a win at the Volvo Match Play a few weeks ago. Ian will be looking to deliver three children an extra special gift on Father’s Day by bringing home his first Major victory.

    In addition. Cobra staff pro Johan Edfors has been playing some great golf on the European Tour, recording three top ten finishes in his last three starts. Edfors earned his way into the Championship the hard way: by winning a playoff for the last spot at his qualifying site. 

    Both Cobra players will be outfitted with a special edition US Open Staff Bag that you can check out in the slideshow. Be sure to enter our U.S. Open Staff Bag Giveaway for a chance to own this one-of-a-kind bag yourself!

    The newest member of the Cobra Golf team, Diego Velasquez, is beginning to find his comfort zone out on the Nationwide Tour.  Velasquez, who was born in Bogota, Columbia, has two top three finishes on the Nationwide Tour this year in just three appearances.  The former First Team All-American at Oregon State University shot rounds of 69-68-70-67 to finish in 16th place at last week’s Melwood Prince George’s County Open.  Diego mentioned one of the keys to his success has been his driving with his new S3 driver.  For the week, Diego averaged 311.4 off the tee and was tied for second in driving accuracy.  His strong finish secured him a spot in this week’s Nationwide Event in Raleigh, NC.   Here is a look into Diego’s bag and his preparations at the Rex Hospital Open.
