Cobra (and Rickie) had big days yesterday. The manufacturer’s most popular endorser won a PGA Tour event for the first time in 4.5 years. Thirteen of the 14 clubs in his bag feature the latest and greatest from the Cobra lineup of gear. However, if you were to ask anyone who has watched professional men’s golf on TV the last month what equipment does Rickie play, to a man (or woman), he would say, “a long’ish Odyssey putter.” Without ever a mention of Cobra…
Rickie’s (and Wyndham’s) Versa Jailbird putter model — long-ass SuperStroke grip and all — is the hottest piece of golf equipment in the world right now. Heck, this past week, Odyssey, who is owned by Callaway Golf, rolled out a limited-run, pre-order ad campaign for an exact spec of the magic wand. We’re guessing the run of putters just got bigger. A whole lot bigger.
