Legendary Italian carmarker Ferrari partners up with Cobra and releases their line of metalwoods and bags. So now, if you can’t afford the cool quarter-million dollar price tag for the famous cars, at least you can swing a club like the owner would. PGA Tour pro Ian Poulter is the brand’s poster boy for the project. The redheaded golf driver, which uses Cobra’s ZL technology along with new aerodynamics, comes in at $2,000, while the bag runs even more at $2,400. But the leather cart bag will be made from the same supple leather used in the Ferrari GT seats. All the Ferrari x Cobra gear drops in July, including other accessories like $120 polo shirts and $250 jackets patterned after the interior of a Ferrari. Puma is also expected to launch some Ferrari golf shoes too, which will set you back about $600 bones. All I gotta say is, dope.

What’s with the British accent voiceover (wait, is it British?). Hope you like pulp? Cobra presents a 30 second spot on the dreamy Rickie Fowler joining Cobra Golf, having switched over his clubs from Titleist. Not a far stretch, given that Fowler’s been with Puma for clothing, and Cobra/Puma is the same company. As you can see, lots of his famous Sunday orange colorway is involved. Kind of a weak slogan though, “It’s Go Time.” Good player, soft marketing.
Hunter Mahan recently chalked up his 4th PGA Tour win at the Match Play tournament using Ping’s new and yet to be released Nome mallet putter. This putter is not available in stores, but here’s a sneak peek from Delofted. It’s an interesting new design and obviously seems to work. As Mahan said, “I made a putter switch to the Ping Nome and it felt great on the greens immediately.” Congrats!

The G20 driver also has written in cursive on the crown the words, “Made Exclusively for Bubba.” Sweet.
Nike expands its Method putter franchise and its boundaries by unveiling the new mid-mallet Nike Method Concept putter. Inspired by the notion of the concept car, Nike designers created an iconic shape that blends art with science without sacrificing performance. The art is in the profound shape. This radical shape has the appearance of a blade, yet plays like a mallet. Plus, its designed in two parts – the face is light (only 90 grams), yet the body is heavy at 200 grams. This results in a high MOI-to-head ratio putter with a small mallet footprint. Street price around $200.

Wilson Golf drops its lightest driver its ever engineered, the 450cc head DXi Superlight that weights in at an absurdly light 269 grams. For those keeping score, that’s almost 50 grams lighter than most traditional drivers. Lighter club means a lower swing effort, resulting in greater club head speed. Hopefully that gives you more power and a longer drive. Practice not included.
