  • Rickie Fowler and his 12 New Clubs

    Earlier this fall, COBRA Golf announced our brand new 2013 AMP CELL™ product line, featuring MyFlyTM technology as well as color choice. Rickie Fowler couldn’t wait to get his hands on the new gear and put the 2013 products into his bag at the TW World Challenge this week.

    Rickie put 12 new COBRA clubs in his bag this week:

    • AMP CELL Pro Driver MyFly: 7.5°, Vibrant Orange
    • AMP CELL Fairway MyFly: 3+W, Vibrant Orange
    • AMP CELL Hybrid MyFly: 3H, Vibrant Orange
    • AMP CELL Pro Irons 4-9 MB

    “Rickie and I have been working together with the R&D team all year,” commented Ben Schomin, COBRA PUMA GOLF Tour Manager. “Rickie has been giving feedback on shape, design and performance and he was extremely excited and pleased with the final results. He was anxious to get the new AMP CELL line up and the new Tour Trusty’s in his bag this week.”

    Rickie put up a -9 overall, landing him in the T4 spot at the TW World Challenge. During the final round, Rickie holed out on the first hole for an eagle using his new Proto Tour Trusty Rusty, earning him the shot of the day. You can see the video from PGA Tour below. His 12 new COBRA clubs had an impact on Rickie’s game, helping deliver multiple eagles and birdies throughout the tournament.


    Rickie, known for sharing images and thoughts with fans through Twitter, has been sharing his excitement over the new clubs in his bag this week with tweets such as “Looking forward to playing the new weapons from the AMP CELL line and the Tour Trusty Proto wedges 47, 51, 55.” and “Really excited about the new AMP CELL Line.” ( )

  • Celebrity, John O

    Today, COBRA Golf and celebrity, John O’Hurley, released the first video in a three part series about COBRA’s famous, and iconic, Baffler. The first video features John O’Hurley discussing some of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements, ultimately presenting the COBRA Baffler, the mother of all great achievements.

    “COBRA is certainly bringing something new and fresh to the industry with this campaign,” commented John O’Hurley. “They’ve been known for producing innovative products for 40 years since the very 1st Baffler and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to work with them on this breakthrough product launch."

    John O’Hurley, most notably known for his role as J. Peterman on Seinfeld, is an avid golfer and lover of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements, such as the wheel, double bacon cheeseburgers and bikinis. In typical John O’Hurley fashion (and voice) you’ll be guided through some of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements. Some will make you laugh, some might make you think, some will make you want to share your own; but one of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements, in fact the mother of all of them, will make golf easier. That, friends, is the COBRA Baffler.

    The Baffler was created by COBRA’s founder, Tom Crow, almost forty years ago and revolutionized the game of golf. With rails on the sole, the Baffler made it easy to get the ball into the air, no matter what the lie. In fall of 2012, COBRA introduced the new Baffler Hybrid Iron set, making golf even easier. With a progressive, oversized face profile and railed sole, the Baffler Hybrid Iron set takes direct influence from the Baffler, the mother of all of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements. The Baffler Hybrid Irons deliver golfers an easy to hit combo set that delivers maximum forgiveness, higher launch and improved distance; truly making it Golf Made EasyTM.

    The video, ‘Mankind’s Greatest Achievements’ is the first in a three-part series from COBRA Golf and John O’Hurley. The next episode will be released in January and the final episode in April. Fans in the US have a chance to win a set of Baffler Hybrid Irons by visiting and uploading a photo of something they consider to be one of mankind’s greatest achievements. Fans can also join the conversation on the video and the Baffler on Twitter using the hashtag #golfmadeeasy
