Rickie Fowler has agreed a contract extension with Cobra Puma Golf as brand ambassador.
Fowler, whose 2017 season included a win at the Honda Classic, ten top-ten finishes and a more recent, record-breaking win at the 2017 Hero World Challenge, will continue to play with Cobra Golf equipment and wear Puma apparel, accessories and footwear, as he has done since turning professional in 2009.
“Since turning professional, Rickie has been an exemplary ambassador for not only the Cobra and Puma brands, but also for the game of golf, as a whole,” said Bob Philion, president of Puma North America and Cobra Puma Golf. “He’s a tremendous role model for the next generation of golfers and his fun-loving spirit combined with a determined attitude has helped to extend the appeal of golf to new audiences.
“His drive and performance on the course and his engaging and genuine personality off the course has made him an absolute star in the sports world and we are extremely proud to have him as part of the Cobra Puma Golf family for many years to come.”
As part of the updated partnership, Fowler will play a key role in the brand’s initiatives around Cobra Connect, the electronic performance-tracking software embedded in the grips of Fowler’s King F8 clubs.
“I’m proud to be part of an exciting and creative company that is focused on true innovation and willing to push the boundaries of golf style and equipment,” said Fowler. “Cobra Puma Golf and I have shared incredible success over the years and I’m looking forward to many more successful years together.”
The 29-year-old American is currently seventh in the world golf rankings and 13th in FedExCup Points.
