Carlsbad, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2016) Cobra Golf, a leader in golf club innovation and technology, today introduced the ultimate players iron, the KING FORGED TOUR, along with its first FORGED TOUR ONE LENGTH set. The ONE LENGTH version is currently in the bag of PGA TOUR professional and COBRA PUMA GOLF athlete, Bryson DeChambeau. With Tour proven performance, these irons are optimized for performance providing the soft feel, distance and precision demanded by the best golfers.

“The KING FORGED ONE LENGTH irons are perfect for my game – allowing me to perform at the highest level,” DeChambeau. “My preferred feel is a forging, which these irons deliver along with a more compact head and reduced offset design for trajectory and shot-shaping control.”

The KING FORGED ONE LENGTHTM utilizes a 5-step forging process that ensures precise iron shaping, a more refined grain structure, along with unparalleled feel for better players. The set is comprised of constant length irons that have been re-engineered for 7-iron weighting and are designed with optimized geometries, to provide consistent trajectory and distance gapping from long irons to wedges. In addition, the KING FORGED ONE features 100% CNC Milled Face and Grooves for maximum spin and trajectory control, Tungsten Weighting (in 4i-7i) for a lower and centered CG and a Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Insert (4i-8i) behind the hitting zone to damp vibrations for better feel and moves weight toward the perimeter for added heel and toe relief. Nickel chrome plating provides better aesthetics and durability for great looking and longer-lasting irons. The KING FORGED ONE, available in right-hand only in steel stiff and regular flexes, will offer a 4-PW standard set make-up and will feature a MAP price of $999. They are offered stock with Lamkin Crossline ACE blue grips with red & white accents and KBS TOUR FLT steel shafts (120g stiff; 110g regular).

Rounding out the COBRA Golf 2017 iron family are the new KING FORGED TOUR irons that offer Tour-proven performance, feel and precise shot-making. The KING FORGED TOUR irons utilize the same premium technologies as the KING FORGED ONE, but with a traditional set length and head weight progression. The KING FORGED TOUR, which also use a 5-step forging process, are designed with Tungsten Weighting employing high-density tungsten weights that are strategically positioned on the sole of the clubhead for a lowered and centered CG that delivers the ideal blend of forgiveness and precision. A TPU Insert located behind the hitting zone damps vibrations and improves feel while CNC milled faces and grooves improve the structure and maximize spin and trajectory control. The KING FORGED TOUR, available in right-hand only, offer a standard stock set composition of 4-PW (3i and GW available in custom) steel stiff/regular flexes, with a MAP price of $999.

antiguaAntigua Announces Spring 2017 Men’s Performance 72 Collection

PEORIA, AZ – The Antigua Group, Inc. – one of the nation’s leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel under the distinguished Antigua brand – announced its Spring 2017 Men’s Performance 72 Collection.

This latest apparel offers the technology of today’s functional fabrics and the garments they’re styled into — well worth a wardrobe update. “As this new performance collection sits alongside comparisons to styles of previous decades, a picture wouldn’t do it justice – there’s a need to touch, feel, wear and play it, to truly get a sense of its inherent value,” says Sean Gregg, Antigua’s Vice President of Product Development and Marketing Support.

Spring 2017 Color: Primarily Primary

The efforts made in fabric and function research and development for Antigua’s Men’s Spring ’17 golf wear collection are almost overshadowed by the selection and updated use of color. As trend blatantly dictates all things in fashion, Antigua’s Spring ’17 color palette optically represents the current synergy of the apparel fashion direction as a whole and its interpretation into golf wear.

The bright primary color offering for ’17 has shifted from last season’s on-the-nose primaries to now being a rich weight of color leaning off center of the classic primary colors, while still maintaining a clean bright hue. The color names Cajun, Cabana, Cypress, Mulberry, Marmalade, Harbor and Pineapple represent the distinct saturation of these new bright colors.

Reflecting on current trends, Antigua’s effectively assimilated color onto color this season. Instead of pitting the neutrality of black, white and grey accents against bright shades that typically allows the latter to be in the forefront of any style, Antigua juxtaposed a primary color against another primary — bringing a truly fresh aspect to the Spring performance fashion color direction this season. Cabana royal is set against Cypress green. Harbor navy offsets Pineapple yellow. Taupe appropriately distinguishes Cajun red. Mulberry embraces Light Cabana blue, and Marmalade orange nostalgically pairs with neutral shades.
