Cobra Golf Introduces F8 Fairways & Hybrids For Increased Distance And Shot-Making Versatility From Any Lie

King F8 and F8+ Fairways & F8 Hybrids, and the industry’s first One Length Hybrid, utilize progressive Baffler Rails & 360 o aero technology for unrivaled performance

Carlsbad, Calif. (Nov. 17, 2017) Cobra Golf, a leader in golf club innovation and technology, today introduced its highest-performing and most technologically-advanced KING F8, F8+ fairways, and KING F8 hybrids. Employing COBRA’s patented Dual Baffler® Rail system, cutting-edge 360o Aero Technology, premium multi-material construction, and COBRA CONNECT™ Powered by Arccos, the F8 family of fairways and hybrids are COBRA’s fastest, most versatile and smartest yet.

The KING F8 and F8+ fairways are designed to provide golfers of varying playing abilities a choice between maximum launch and forgiveness in the F8 model, or tour preferred shaping with maximum workability and precision in the F8+ model.

The KING F8 fairways (MAP $249) incorporate an improved Baffler® Dual Rail System with tighter-spaced rails with CG centered between the rails, reducing twisting and resulting in a higher amount of clubhead speed retained upon contact with the turf.

The KING F8+ fairways (MAP $249) provide all of the same incredible technologies as the F8, in a more compact head size that better players prefer. Furthermore, in F8+ the CG weight is front-positioned leading to a more penetrating ball flight to help higher swing speed players prevent ballooning, and to perform better in all weather conditions.

The KING F8 and F8 ONE Length hybrids (MAP $199) utilize COBRA’s Baffler® Dual Rail System and a new Multi-Directional Crown Aero Technology to provide more speed, forgiveness and versatility than ever before. Like the F8 fairways, the taller and tighter-spaced rails on the F8 and F8 ONE hybrids provide more leading edge bounce, to help the club stay lower to the ground for more consistent launch from a variety of lies. The multi-directional Aero trips on the crown made of lightweight polymer ensure optimized aerodynamic performance while maintaining a lower CG for faster clubhead speed and more distance. A sleeker clubhead design features a lowered skirt and a shorter, skinnier hosel for an extremely low CG, while a fixed weight positioned low and back results in a high, towering ball flight that delivers the ultimate in launch and distance performance.

Golfers can now purchase the new F8 fairways and hybrids, along with the F8 driver and irons, to complete their fully connected set using the COBRA CONNECT™ Powered by Arccos system; the award-winning connected golf system helps players of all skill levels make smarter, data-driven decisions. Electronically embedded sensors in the grip of each club automatically record the distance and accuracy of every shot so golfers can track their improvements round-to-round. Using the COBRA CONNECT/Arccos 360 mobile app, users simply pair their clubs to receive detailed performance data and access to rangefinder GPS distances for more than 40,000 courses worldwide.

K-Motion Introduces Training Series To Teach Golf Instructors The Kinematic Sequence

Helps identify root cause of inefficient swings to accelerate player improvement

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – K-MOTION Interactive – the pioneer of innovative human motion training for the golf, baseball, hockey, fitness and physical therapy industries – introduces an online course to teach golf instructors how to read kinematic sequence charts with the learning techniques used to educate pilots to read flight instruments and doctors to read x-rays.

By understanding the kinematic sequence, coaches can accurately identify the root cause of inefficient movement and deliver drills to correct the motion, leading to accelerated player improvement. The “Reading Kinematic Sequence Graphs” series demystifies the process through an interactive environment in which students read and interpret real charts. Through the online series, instructors develop the ability to retain, recall and apply this advanced knowledge at an increased speed and level of proficiency.

Kinematic sequence charts in golf precisely measure the velocity, rotation and sequence of the pelvis, upper body, lead arm, hand and club in the swing. Before K-MOTION introduced the series, those interested in learning how to read kinematic sequence charts were forced to invest thousands of dollars to attend multi-day seminars, and rarely developed competency before years of practice. Now, instructors can master this valuable practice in a matter of hours.
