Cobra Golf has signed five-time PGA Tour winner Jason Dufner to a multi-year equipment contract that will see the 2013 PGA Championship winner play with the brand’s woods, irons and wedges and use a branded staff bag.

He also uses a King 4i driving iron. His first touament as a Cobra Puma staff players will be at this week’s Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico.
Speaking about the company’s latest signing, Dan Ladd, Executive Vice President, General Manager of Cobra Puma Golf, said: “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 as the newest member of our team. In addition to his unique personality, Jason 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 honoured that someone as discerning as he is, has chosen our equipment as he looks towards the next stage of an already impressive career.”
Dufner, who is currently 218th in the world rankings, and last won in 2017 at the Memorial, said: “I couldn’t be more excited to join the Cobra team. The success of Rickie [Fowler] and Bryson [DeChambeau] 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. 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 the Cobra clubs in the bag and represent the Cobra brand.”
