Golfing starlet, Rickie Fowler, has agreed a deal with Cobra Golf’s joining their worldwide roster of professional golfers.
Cobra Golf will supply Fowler with the latest golf clubs as well as Tour Staff Bags and a selection of accessories.
Fowler, who signed with Puma Golf in 2009, will now represent the full Cobra Puma Golf brand both on and off the course. Fowler will also be featured in upcoming marketing campaigns for both Cobra and Puma Golf.
Bob Philion, president of Cobra Puma Golf, said: “Rickie’s focus, determination and performance combined with his stand-out style and joy for the game make him a perfect match for Cobra Golf.”
“He has had a tremendous effect in the golf industry over the past few years and his influence continues to grow.

He will help us introduce the new Cobra Golf to a new group of consumers.”
To celebrate Rickie’s full Cobra Puma Golf partnership, ‘orange-outs’ will happen at various Tour events, Cobra Puma Golf Experiences, retailers and this week at the 2012 PGA Merchandise Show. ‘Orange-outs’ will celebrate Fowler, his favourite colour and the new Cobra AMPTM line of drivers, irons, hybrids and fairway woods.

Fowler will start out the year with Cobra’s brand new AMPTM Driver featuring E9 Face TechnologyTM with dual roll, Advanced Material Placement TM, Adjustable Flight Technology TM with details in Fowler’s favorite colour, vibrant orange, the AMP 3-wood and AMP Pro Prototype Irons. Throughout the year, he will continue to test new Cobra Golf product and add it to his bag.

I can’t wait to get out at Torrey Pines and put my new Cobra clubs into play.”
Rickie turned professional in 2009 and won his first professional event in 2011 at the Kolon Korea Open, where he beat top competitors Rory McIlroy and Y.E. Yang to take home the title.
