  • Ian Poulter Steps Out in Ferrari Golf Leather Shoe and Ferrari Luxury Golf Bag in First Round of Deu

    During the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, Ian Poulter stepped onto the TPC Boston golf course wearing the Ferrari Golf Leather Shoe and using a custom version of the Ferrari Luxury Golf Bag; both items from the Ferrari Golf Collection engineered by COBRA PUMA GOLF that hit retail stores earlier this month. Ian put up a 4 under par in the first round.

    Ian Poulter wore the handmade leather shoes for the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. The Ferrari Golf Leather Shoes are handcrafted in Italy with genuine full grain leather upper and sole. Available in white or black, the shoe is the epitome of fashion and technology. Utilizing PUMA®’s S2Quill technology, the shoe provides superior traction, stability and support while on course. The delicate stitching in the shoe is designed after the interior of a Ferrari car and the sleek silhouette is an understated, luxury look that had heads turning all over the golf course today.

    The Ferrari Luxury Golf Bag is crafted in Poltrana Frau Leather, the same leather used in Ferrari GT cars. Ian used a custom black version in today’s round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Additional accessories such as the Ferrari Golf Luxury Shoe Bag and Ferrari Golf Luxury Duffel are also made in Poltrana Frau Leather.

    The Ferrari Golf Collection was developed through a collaboration with COBRA PUMA GOLF and Ferrari SpA. It brings the most innovative technologies from COBRA PUMA GOLF engineers and Ferrari aerodynamic engineers together with premium materials, packaging and unquestionable style.

  • Playoffs? Yes, COBRA is Heading to the Playoffs!

    With fall quickly upon us and thoughts of leaves changing and football taking over, the PGA Tour season is turning into high gear with the 2012 FedEx Cup Playoffs beginning this week at the Barclays played at the famed Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, NY.

    As in the NFL where a record number of rookie quarterbacks are expected to start for their respective teams this season, the COBRA Team's own PGA Tour rookie Jonas Blixt is looking towards the autumn to make a name for himself on the national stage. His reward for a rock solid season? Landing a treasured spot in the playoffs!

    Let's review some of his highlights from the 2012 season and take a peek inside his bag to see the tools applied to help him get the job done:

    • (3) top 40s by the 1st of April while he got his footing under him on the world's premiere golf tour
    • Snagged his first ever PGA Tour top 20 at Zurich Classic in April finishing strong with an impressive 67 on Sunday
    • Had (3) straight top 10 finishes in the month of May including a T3 at the HP Byron Nelson where he put together a 67-66 on the weekend!

    On the power of his ZL Encore (Black) and Baffler T-Rail hybrid, Jonas led the Tour in eagles made this year and will be relying heavily on those COBRA clubs as well as his S3 Pro MB irons as he looks to advance to the second round of the playoffs over Labor Day Weekend.

    Jonas joins Rickie Fowler and Ian Poulter in making it a perfect 3 for 3 for COBRA's fully exempt PGA Tour Staff professionals in qualifying for the 2012 FedEx Cup Playoffs.

    Good luck Guys! 

  • Poults Rolls On Through PGA Championship Midway Point

    Despite blustery conditions that sent scores soaring, Ian Poulter posted his second straight sub par round at The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island on Friday and looked comfortable doing so. His second round 71 was well below the field average of just below 78, a scoring average that was the toughest in the history of the PGA Championship.

    How tough was it out there? There were more rounds in the 90's than there were in the 60's. WOW!

    Ian's steady tee to green play with his Cobra equipment from his ZL Encore White driver off the tee to his precise iron shots with his S3 Pro irons have allowed him to be one of only two players in the 156 player field to better Kiawah's often brutal par 72 both days.

    Beyond his obvious comfort with his Adjustable Flight technology (AFT) setting in his ZL Encore, Poults is clearly comfortable with his AMP fairway metal as well as his Baffler Rail hybrid, two clubs which have become crucial with ball control at an absolute premium at the Ocean Course.

    With the third round on the horizon Saturday, look for Poults to be ready for the challenge.

    With longer, more forgiving technology in his bag, why wouldn't he be?

  • Rickie and Ian Take on WGC Bridgestone Invitational

    As the PGA Tour season rapidly heads toward the FedEx Cup Playoffs and the Ryder Cup, COBRA Golf brand ambassadors Ian Poulter and Rickie Fowler are gearing up for their last tournaments of the Tour’s regular season this coming weekend and next.

    This week is the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio followed by the PGA Championship in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. A world golf event followed by a Major to kick off August? And we thought the fall months were where the action heated up!!

    Ian comes into Akron playing very consistently with top 10’s in each of his last two starts and will enter the PGA with a pair of top 10’s in Majors this year. Unlike his last start, however, look for him to be able to reach into his Cobra bag for his ZL Encore driver much more often this week than he was able to playing links golf at Royal Lytham & St Annes. And when the tight fairways await in the Palmetto state, look for Poults to tackle some of the tighter driving holes with his juicy AMP 3 wood and his Baffler rail hybrid.

    For his part, Rickie looks to jump back into playing competitively for consecutive weeks for the first time in two months and will do so with his awesome AMP Driver. This sweet driver has the innovative technology that has seen Fowler move from just inside the top 100 in total driving in 2011 to comfortably inside the top 20 in 2012. An amazing jump in the one driving stat that takes into account both distance and accuracy. Look for some serious AMPlification amongst Rickie’s legions of fans along the fairways of both Firestone CC and the Kiawah Island Resort in the coming weeks.

    An elite, invitation-only field.

    Glory’s last shot.

    The playoffs and Ryder Cup on the horizon.

    Good thing these guys have Fresh. Juicy. Sweet. Technology on their side.
