Cobra Puma Golf has announced a partnership with player management company Modest! Golf ahead of the 2019 PGA EuroPro tour season, which will see 13 members of a hand-picked ‘NXT LVL’ academy wearing and playing Cobra Puma products.
After recently announcing its new three-year deal extension to be official equipment, apparel and footwear sponsors of the PGA EuroPro Tour, Cobra Puma Golf will enhance its relationship by following the progress of the ‘NXT LVL’ academy via social media.
The players selected will be battling it out on two fronts with a Cobra Puma Golf Order of merit running alongside the main PGA EuroPro Tour order of merit. A low round bonus, as well as five Challenge Tour starts in the 2020 season are up for grabs in the newly-formed initiative. A relationship has also been struck with Modest! Golf to be the partner of the Cobra Puma Golf order of merit.
Speaking about the deal, Cobra Puma Golf marketing manager Craig Verrinder said: “We are extremely excited about both the extension of our contract with the PGA EuroPro Tour, but also the opportunity to work closely with the future talent in the game. The EuroPro Tour really is the springboard to the best platforms in the game, and to work with these players in 2019 is a really exciting prospect. To be able to support them further with product, additional bonuses and work through our social media channels is testament of what we think of the players and the tour itself.”
He added: “Further to that, to be able to work with Modest! Golf on the Cobra Puma Golf Order of Merit enables us to use their standing within the game to offer the Challenge Tour invites in the 2020 season. We value its support and also how it perceives the future of golf. We would like to take this opportunity to thank both Modest! and The Challenge Tour in the support they have shown this NXT LVL of players.”
Director of Modest! Golf Management Mark McDonnell said: ”We are really excited to support Cobra Puma Golf with this initiative. We appreciate that support is hard to come by for a large amount of really talented young golfers looking to make their way in the game. The Cobra Puma Golf NXT LVL Academy will give young talented players the support and belief at a point when they most need it.”
Niall Horan, founder and Director of Modest! Golf, added: “Our company is all about supporting young talent. The NXT LVL Academy does exactly that, and we are delighted to be able to provide some playing opportunities and hope this will add as an additional incentive for the NXT LVL members.”
