Bryson DeChambeau signs with Cobra Puma Golf

Bryson DeChambeau has signed a long-term partnership with Cobra Puma Golf.

The 22-year-old, who last year became only the fifth player to win the NCAA Men’s Individual Championship and the US Amateur in the same calendar year, plays his first professional tournament at the RBC Heritage this week.

This follows a tied-21st finish at last week’s Masters, where he was the highest placed amateur.

DeChambeau developed a repeatable one plane swing after reading The Golfing Machine, and his irons are all the length of a seven iron. This approach to the game, coupled with his major in Physics at Southern Methodist, has earned him the nickname “The Scientist”.

The American will wear Puma Golf Apparel, accessories and footwear, incorporating his signature Hogan Driver Cap, and red, white and blue ensemble on Sundays, a nod to his alma mater.

He will also play Cobra clubs and use a Cobra Tour bag.

“I believe that I found the perfect partner in COBRA PUMA GOLF,” said DeChambeau. “The Cobra and Puma brands complement my style, attitude and desire to be innovative, while allowing me to continue to be myself, and think outside the box. I’m really thrilled to be part of this cutting-edge and creative company.”

“Bryson has this unique combination of talent, ingenuity and personality that makes him such a dynamic golfer and a great fit for the Cobra Puma Golf brands,” said Robert Philion, President & CEO of Cobra Puma Golf.

“He shares in our mission of Game Enjoyment and our desire to grow the game and make it more fun and inclusive for golfers of all levels.

“Right away we noticed his progressive approach to the game, which is rooted in science and art, along with his passion and dedication.”

DeChambeau put a blue Cobra KING F6+ driver into play at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he competed on a sponsor’s exemption and shot a final-round 66 to finish T-27.

In November, DeChambeau tied for second at the Australian Masters after firing a closing 67.  He followed that up in January by making the cut in all three of the European Tour events he played in Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Dubai.

After his professional debut this week on the venerable Harbour Town Golf Links, DeChambeau will be afforded six more sponsors’ exemptions to try and earn his PGA TOUR card for the 2017 season.

Throughout the rest of the 2016 golf season, DeChambeau will wear footwear and apparel from Puma Golf’s Autumn, Winter ’16 collection including the new family of IGNITE footwear.
