Rickie Fowler to put Cobra King F8+ driver into play and unveil new “P Cap”

Published

on

Fashion icon and one of the world’s most popular golfers, Rickie Fowler, will unleash a new look this week at the 2017 Hero World Challenge. Known for his orange-fitted Puma hat when he came on Tour, Fowler has recently brought the “snapback back” to golf, as rapper Tyga would say. This year, he’ll be rocking a more simplified look from Puma, with a lone “P” on his colorful snapbacks.

The P Cap will sell for $28 in six colorways starting December 1, 2017.

Fowler is also putting Cobra’s new King F8+ driver (in the “Nardo” gray colorway) into play this week; the driver is notable for its CNC-milled face that’s designed to effectively lower CG (center of gravity), enhance durability, and lower spin rates.

Not Rickie’s actual driver, but a stock Nardo-gray Cobra King F8 driver

Here’s the setup Fowler will be going with at the Hero this week, according to Cobra:

    I like the fact that Ricky is hitting a 43.5″ driver. I am a fitter and try to explain to customers that sometimes it is better to hit a shorter driver, especially if you have better control and can hit the center of the face more often. Virtually all the drivers on the rack are 45.5″ and too long for most players. Just because it is longer doesn’t mean the ball will go farther…you’ve gotta hit it square and on the sweet spot. Getting fit to enjoy the game and play better is so important.

      Wow, that’s really good to know. I bought a new driver recently but have never been fitted before…although the technology is way better than my nine-year old driver I was previously gaming, I have more trouble hitting it dead-center with frequency. It also feels different, but I’m sure that’s just because the shaft is completely different than my old one (both were straight off the shelf). Where do you recommend I get “fitted”? I know all the franchise stores offer this service, but if I’m going to pay to get fitted I want to make sure it’s with an expert at fitting. I will also ask for 43.5* shaft since I think that’s a fantastic idea for hitting it dead-center more often. Thanks so much!

    Finally dropped the Fly Z+ 5 wood, I see. The F8 must really be a good club.

In-hand photos of TaylorMade’s new P-760 irons, plus comparison pics

Published

on

TaylorMade unveiled its new P-760 irons during testing sessions on Wednesday night with Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Jason Day via Instagram Live. According to Tomo Bystedt, it’s a progressive set that features a one-piece cavity from PW-8 iron, then a Speed Foam-filled design from the 7-3 irons. Size-wise, the irons essentially exist between the P-750 and P-770 irons released in 2017.

On the Instagram Live feed, Jason Day, who plays the P-750s currently, expressed concern about the leading edge design, and he pointed out the toplines were a bit thicker than his P-750s, and there was more offset, too.

Now — via GolfWRX Member taylorx300 — we have in-hand photos of the irons. In this thread, he unveiled comparison photos between the P-770 and the new P-760. In this thread, he shows in-hand photos of the PW, 8 and 3 irons from the new P-760 set.

Here are the photos from taylorx300 below.
