Puma Golf No Longer Sponsoring Geoff Ogilvy - Switches From Cobra To Titleist

This is the time of year with the start of the PGA Tour season that most players are testing out new equipment. Some guys like Geoff Ogilvy have switched manufacturers. Although Titleist and Cobra are both owned by Acushnet it is still considered a switch. Other guys I'm sure are maybe still looking at their options.

I was also surprised by some more news about Geoff Ogilvy after reading an article by Doug Ferguson, AP Golf Writer on Yahoo.com where he mentions "Ogilvy said he was not able to renew his deal with Puma". I spoke to my contact at Puma (Director of Marketing -Puma North America) and he confirmed that Puma is no longer sponsoring Geoff. Looks like they're putting all their effects into newcomer Rickie Fowler this season. Geoff Ogilvy tees it up this week as the defending champion at the SBS Championship. Rickie Fowler looks like he'll be teeing it up at the 51st Bob Hope Classic January 18-24, 2010.
