Two days before the year’s second major, Sergio Garcia has announced that he is re-joining TaylorMade four years after the Spaniard parted ways with the company.

Garcia left TaylorMade for Callaway in a partnership that lasted two years before becoming a free agent until this week.

The new multi-year agreement with TaylorMade will see the 41-year-old use the brand’s clubs, golf ball, staff bag and represent the company with a logo on the side of his hat.

On his social media accounts, Garcia announced the news by saying:

“Excited to re-join TaylorMade Golf. I’ve always been comfortable with their team, their approach to the game and their equipment, especially their TP5X golf ball. Happy to be back.”

    Glad to see somebody being paid by an equipment company actually using that company’s product all the way through the bag … can’t stand seeing tour pro’s touting a company’s products in commercials or on their website, but then they pull the head-covers off their woods to reveal another company’s products. Has always seemed rather dishonest to me (and yes, I know they all do it).

    Facts…Garcia essentially got laid off from TM just after Adidas sold them to a private equity company in 2017. Not he essentially got rehired when TM is sold to another owner (with probably deeper pockets). Coincidence?!!??!

      Sergio left Taylormade shortly after he won the Masters. I suspect his agent demanded a bigger contract due to the win, and Taylormade balked.

Cobra introduces its first line of 3D-printed multi-material putters

Published

on

Cobra Golf today made its official entry into the putter market with its new line of 3D-printed multi-material putters, all of which feature SIK face technology.

The new releases arrive a year after Cobra first partnered with HP to become the first OEM to launch a commercial, 3D-printed metal putter with the limited-edition King SuperSport-35.

The new putters feature a 3D-printed nylon lattice cartridge created using HP’s advanced Multi-Jet fusion printing technology.

The 3D-printed lattice structure is designed to optimize weight distribution within the putter chassis to deliver a high MOI design for enhanced stability and roll performance in three distinct models: The GrandSport-35 (OS Blade), SuperNova (OS Fang), and the Agera (OS Mallet)

“We’re extremely excited launch our new family of 3D printed putters, continuing our partnership with HP, utilizing their Metal Jet Technology to innovate and transform the way golf equipment is manufactured through the use of 3D printing, an extremely effective process in the design and development of our new putter line. We are extremely excited for golfers to try our new 3D printed putters, while each is unique, they all deliver advanced stability, forgiveness and roll performance that will make putting easier for golfers of all levels.” – Jose, VP Marketing & Product Architecture, Cobra Golf.

In each putter, Cobra partnered with SIK Golf to employ patented Descending Loft Technology (DLT), which features four descending lofts on the face to produce a consistent launch angle and roll for different putting styles.  

The King GrandSport-35 ($349)

The King GrandSport features an oversize blade shape and an MOI comparable to other OS mallets on the market. A plumber neck design to create a 35-degree toe hang aimed towards players with a slight arc to their putting stroke.

A multi-material construction features a 268-gram steel chassis, 21-gram forged aluminum crown, and a 3D-printed nylon lattice cartridge.

With nylon being roughly half the weight of aluminum, the construction enabled weight to be removed from the center of the clubhead and repositioned to the heel and toe areas for increased MOI and forgiveness.

In addition, 30 grams of combined tungsten weight is in the heel and toe in design to enhance perimeter weighting for greater stability on off-center hits.

For enhanced roll performance, an aluminum face insert features SIK’s DLT.

The putter also includes a Tri-Plane sole with center relief in design for added versatility and a single sightline for improved alignment.

The GrandSport-35 is available in right and left hand in 34 and 35-inch lengths through stock (other lengths available through custom).

The GrandSport-35 shape is also available in a 41-inch armlock model with an oversize Lamkin Armlock grip. The Armlock model features an aluminum SIK face insert with more loft than the standard GrandSport-35 (7, 6, 5, 4 degrees) to account for forward shaft lean during the stoke.

The King 3D printed Grandsport-35 putters are equipped with a lightweight polyurethane Lamkin Sinkfit Connect Grip.

The King SuperNova ($349)

The King SuperNova putter features an oversize fang design with MOI over 5,700 designed for extreme stability on off-center hits. The stability is achieved using a 3D-printed multi-material construction with two 3D-printed nylon lattice cartridges, a 291-gram steel chassis, 18-gram forged aluminum crown, and 42 grams of combined tungsten on the perimeter extremities.

The two 3D-printed lattice cartridges use a lightweight nylon material to optimize weight distribution within the chassis making the MOI of the SuperNova greater than other fang-style mallets on the market.

The putter is also equipped with an aluminum SIK face insert and a lightweight polyurethane Lamkin Sink fit Connect Grip.

The King Agera ($349)

The King Agera putter features an oversize mallet shape and an MOI over 7,600, making it one of the most stable putters on the market today.

The design features a 3D-printed nylon cartridge, 261-gram steel chassis, 27-gram forged aluminum crown, and extreme tungsten weighting.

The intricate 3D-printed nylon lattice cartridge removes unnecessary mass from the center in design to allow weight to be redistributed to the perimeter in the form of 53 grams of combined tungsten to increase MOI.

Like the other putters in the King 3D Printed Series, the Agera also features an aluminum face insert with SIK’s DLT with four descending lofts (4,3,2 and 1 degree) to provide optimal launch and roll consistency.

The King Agera putter is equipped with a lightweight polyurethane Lamkin Sink Fit Connect Grip and is available in right and left hand in 34, 35, and 37.5 inches stock length (other lengths available through custom).

A 41-inch Armlock model is also available and comes with a special oversize Lamkin Sinkfit Connect grip.

In addition, Cobra engineers worked with SIK Golf and Bryson DeChambeau to design improved roll in a soft yet crisp feeling aluminum face insert utilizing SIK’s patented Descending Loft Technology (DLT), which features four descending lofts on the face.

The King Vintage Sport-45 ($249)

The King Vintage Sport-45 putter features a traditional blade shape with a plumber neck hosel.

The construction consists of a 304 stainless steel chassis with a single sightline, while a 45-degree toe hang is designed for players with a slight arc that desire a blend of stability and control. 

An aluminum face insert is designed with SIK’s DLT, which utilizes four descending lofts (4,3,2,1 degrees) in design for accurate roll trajectory for descending, neutral, and ascending attack angles.

In addition, the Sport-45 putter is equipped with two 20-gram sole weights that can be adjusted to plus-five or minus-10 each to tune the overall headweight. 

The custom weights (10, 15,20, and 25 grams) are sold separately through custom and on Cobra’s website, while the putter comes equipped with a lightweight polyurethane Lamkin Sinkfit Connect grip.

King Vintage Sport-60

The second offering in the “Sport” blade shape is the King Vintage Sport-60. The putter features a flowneck hosel design that creates a 60-degree toe hang that is suitable for players who have a stronger arc putting stroke.

The Sport-60 putter is equipped with two 25-gram sole weights that can be adjusted up to minus-15 grams each to decrease the overall head weight up to minus-30g.

The King Vintage Torino ($249)

This putter features a mid-mallet shape with a single bend shaft designed to create a face-balanced design that caters to top layers with a straight-back, straight-through stroke.

Like the blade models in the family, the Vintage Torino uses a 304 stainless steel chassis with triple sightlines for enhanced alignment at address. An aluminum face insert is designed with SIK Golf’s DLT. The Torino putter is equipped with two 10-gram sole weights that can be adjusted up to 15 grams each to increase the overall head weight. 

The putter comes equipped with a lightweight polyurethane Lamkin Sinkfit Connect grip. 

The King Vintage Nova ($249)

The King Vintage Nova features a popular fang shape designed for enhanced stability and improved alignment and a single bend hosel for a face-balanced design suitable for players with a straight-back, straight-through stroke. 

The Vintage Nova chassis is constructed using 304 stainless steel and is equipped with a 6061 aluminum (aircraft grade) face insert featuring SIK’s DLT with four descending lofts (4, 3, 2, and 1 degrees).

The second offering in the “Nova” fang shape is the King Vintage Nova-40. The putter features a short slant hosel design that creates a 40-degree toe hang that is suitable for players who have a slight arc to their putting stroke.

The King Vintage Stingray ($249)

This oversize mallet putter utilizes a multi-material construction featuring a 304 stainless steel chassis on the perimeter and a unique plastic/carbon-fiber housing system that allows for a single adjustable weight. The result? The highest MOI shape in the Vintage family. 

The model is designed with a single bend hosel to create a face-balanced design that is suited for players with a straight-back, straight-through stroke seeking forgiveness and stability. The Vintage Stingray is also equipped with an aluminum face insert featuring SIK Golf’s DL.

The second offering in the “Stingray” mallet shape is the King Vintage Stingray-40. The putter features a short slant hosel design that creates a 40-degree toe hang that is suited for players who have a slight arc to their putting stroke.

Each putter in the King Vintage Series is equipped with a Cobra Connect grip Powered by Arccos Caddie.
