“At COBRA our goal is to align with the best athletes and ambassadors who are not only talented golfers but are also engaging and authentic on and off the course. To that end, we are excited to officially announce Jason Dufner as the newest member of our team,” said Dan Ladd, Executive Vice President, General Manager of COBRA PUMA Golf. “In addition to his unique personality, Dufner is known for his impressive ball-striking ability, as well as being one of the most sophisticated, technically-savvy pros out there when it comes to choosing what’s in his bag, and we’re honored that someone as discerning as he is, has chosen our equipment as he looks towards the next stage of an already impressive career.”

Dufner has been playing with the KING F9 SPEEDBACK driver for most of 2019 and recently worked into COBRA irons and wedges as well.

What’s in Dufner’s bag currently:
· Driver: COBRA KING F9 SPEEDBACK |10.5° black/yellow| LAGP OLYSS 6x shaft
· Irons: COBRA KING Forged CB (chrome) | 5-P | Dynamic Gold Tour Issue AMT S400 shaft
· Irons: KING driving iron 4i | LAGP Proto Rev A shaft
· Wedges: COBRA KING V Grind | 52°, 56° & 62° | Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shaft

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the COBRA team. The success of Rickie and Bryson over the past few years with COBRA equipment certainly piqued my interest in the brand. When I tested their products, I was impressed by the improvement in my numbers across the board and by the look and feel of their equipment,” said Dufner. “I had been testing a variety of products over the past year, and COBRA has proven to be the best for me. I am thrilled to have COBRA clubs in the bag and represent the COBRA brand.”
