Bryson DeChambeau was spotted playing with a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver in the first round of the Saudi International, leading to speculation on his future with Cobra Puma Golf.
In 2022, DeChambeau had the Cobra King LTDx driver in the bag, but after reaching out for comment from Cobra Puma Golf, we understand that he is no longer under contract as his deal expired in 2022.
Discussions between both the player and the brand are ongoing in 2023, so we could still yet see DeChambeau tee it up with the newest Cobra clubs this season.
He first joined Cobra Puma Golf in April 2016 shortly after turning professional. He was the reigning US Amateur champion using a Cobra King F6+ driver and a custom-made set of single-length Cobra irons.
The former US Open champion went through a significant physical change in 2022 as he shed 18 pounds after bulking so much in previous years, but his emphasis on hitting the ball miles and 'bomb and gouge' tactics helped him to eight PGA Tour wins and a major championship.

He led driving distance on the PGA Tour in 2020 and 2021. He took his monstrous long game to LIV Golf last summer, but he endured his first winless year since turning professional.
After teeing it up at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club this week, he is set to play in the first event of LIV Golf's second season at Mayakoba at the end of this month.
The 29-year-old recently revealed to LIV Golf that he had surgery on a retention cyst behind his face in December. This is said to cure the cause of his vertigo which he experienced for the first time at The Masters in 2020.
"My energy level is so much better. My clarity of thought is way better. I don’t know if you can tell, but my speech is a lot more fluent and I’m not stopping as much or pitching as much like I used to last year and before," he said.
"Now, I’m eating healthier than ever and I’ve got my airflow back in my nose. LIV has allowed me to do all this. Being just completely transparent and upfront, I couldn’t really do it before."
