Puma SA celebrates Cobra Golf merge

Puma sales director Luke Barret-Smith, MD of Puma Cobra Golf Deon Bakkes and Puma marketing manager Brett Bellinger

The merge between Cobra Golf and Puma SA was celebrated at the River Club in Observatory on the 18th of February, where the media and golfers had a chance to test Puma-Cobra clubs.

The international merge between Puma AG and Cobra Golf was announced in 2010, combining Puma Golf’s footwear, apparel and accessories designs with Cobra Golf’s advanced equipment, innovation and superior performance. The merge between Cobra Golf and Puma SA was officially announced and it was the first time that the latest Cobra S3 and S3 Max irons, drivers and fairway metals were showcased.

Puma’s E9 Face Technology expands the original sweet zone by 30%, allowing golfers to use a larger area of the club face. In tests, Cobra had golfers hitting more than 25 000 shots, during which they discovered that most players do not hit the ball on a circular sweet spot around the centre of the face all the time (with long irons), but rather in a slanted, elliptical pattern from the low heel to the high toe. With shorter irons, golfers are said to hit the ball in a circular pattern. The new cavity design changes Puma-Cobra’s Sweet Zone from elliptical in the long irons to oval in the mid-irons and to circular in the short irons.
