  • A Force of Cobra Golfers Storm the Courses this Week

    It's a big week for Cobra Golf Staffer! Seven of our Tour Staffers (and one on an alternate list) are playing in tournaments this week, we don't know we'll keep up with all of them - but we will!

    Lexi Thompson, Anna Nordqvist and Lee-Anne Pace are all playing in The Evian Masters in France this week. In last year's Evian Masters, Anna finished 5 under at T19, Lee-Ane finished even par for the T44 slot and Lexi put up a 13 under for the T2 position. This will be the last Evian Masters played before it turns into a Major in the 2012 season. Johan Edfors is also playing across the pond in his native Sweden in The Nordea Masters. He'll be playing his S3 Driver, S3 Fairway, Baffler Pro 1/R and S3 Pro Irons.

    Stateside, Blair O'Neal will be playing in The International at Concord in New Hampshire at the Beaver Meadow Golf Course. Blair will participate in junior clinics and the pro-am ahead of the 54 hole event. And for the boys we have Jonas Blixt and Diego Velasquez playing in the Children's Hospital Invitational. Manny Villegas is on the alternate list for the same event.

    We're excited to keep tabs on everyone all week, be sure to check back here for photos of the Cobra gang and stay up to date with all of the action at and

  • Cobra-PUMA Golf's 'A Day Out of Bounds'

    Ahead of The Open Championship, Cobra-PUMA Golf hosted 'A Day out of Bounds' on Tuesday, July 12th at Princes Golf Club (adjacent to Royal St. Geourges in Kent, UK).  Teams could enter to participate in our event which was an unconventional and exciting game of golf! Some of the hole challenges included a team speed hole (the quickest test to get the ball from the tee to the hole won!), The ultimate Par 7 (1,000 yards!) and beached! (stick it close to the pin..on the beach!)

    Winners got kitted out in PUMA Golf apparel and footwear and got to try out all of the newest Cobra drivers. Attendees could compete for prizes, play table tennis, enhoy the food and beer, get custom fit for Cobra producst and more!

    Cobra staffers Ian Poulter and Johan Edfors also showed up to join in the fun. Johan took part in the crazy golf challenges with the team, and Ian came through later in the day to play some table tennis (he's quite good!), hang out and try out some trick shots (have you seen his trick shot video? Check out the video on Facebook! )

    60 golfers experienced the unconventional course, over 50 fans showed up to hang out and take part in the games and entertainment and we invited 2 teams of media to experience this ultimate event with us. 

    The 'Back 6' was where the fun after the course started, with ping pong, table tennis, roulette, black jack and more. We had a blast and hope everyone else did too! Take a look at the photos here!

  • Ian Poulter Back at the Site of his First Open Championship

    This week, The Open Championship is being held at Royal St. Geourge's, the site of Ian Poulter's very first Open Championship. Ian's got a style all his own and we helped him up his style factor on the course with his White ZL Driver. In addtion to the White ZL Driver, Ian also plays the Baffler 2/H, Cobra Pro CB Irons and Cobra Pro MB Irons.

    We can't wait to watch Ian this week! He tees off on Thursday with Dustin Johnson and Yuta Ikeda at 8:42am. 

  • Cobra Players Anna Nordqvist, Lexi Thompson and Lee-Anne Pace Get into Gear for US Women's Open

    Cobra Golf has three ladies representing the Black & Yellow this week in the US Women's Open in Colorado Springs. Anna Nordqvist, Lexi Thompson and Lee-Anne Pace each hail from a different country (Sweden, US and South Africa), but have all found a love for the game of golf.

    The Boradmoor East Course is set up at 7,047 yards, making it the longest course in US Women's Open history. Play was suspended during the first round due to weather, but the ladies have teed off again this morning to finish up round 1 and get started on round 2!

    Anna is playing her S3 Driver, S3 Fairway, Baffler Rail 3/H and her S2 Forged irons this week as she fights it out at the US Women's Open. Lexi Thompson is using her favorite S2 Driver, S3 3Wood, Baffler 2H and S2 Forged Irons and Lee-Anne is playing her S3 Driver, S3 3Wood, S3 5Wood, Baffler Rail 4/H and S3 Pro Irons.

    The ladies each put their favorite Cobra clubs into a new Cobra Staff Tour Bag this week. They are red, blue & white - each embroidered with her name and the PUMA Project Pink ribbon. Project Pink is an initiative PUMA started last year to raise awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer. PUMA athletes help raise awareness by wearing all pink gear with Project Pink logos. Fans can nominate their favorite breast cancer charity and in the fall, fans vote to determine which of the nominated charities will receive 100% of the proceeds from PUMA's Project Pink product sales and the money generated from the #projectpink Twitter campaign.

    Earlier this week, the LPGA ruled that Lexi Thompson can earn her 2012 Tour Card through Qualifying School, getting her Tour card would make Lexi the first female golfer in LPGA history to start her rookie year before turning 17. We're so excited for Lexi that we're giving away her signed, white & yellow Tour Staff Bag. (US Residents Only). Enter here:
