In a great signing by the newly formed Cobra-PUMA Golf union. Anna Nordqvist will not only be wearing Puma golf lady designs (golf shirts, sweater, etc) but she'll be using an almost complete bag of Cobra golf clubs including the new S3 driver and S3 fairway wood.
What's in Anna Nordqvist's golf bag? Now it's Cobra clubs. Cobra Golf announced today that Swedish-born pro Anna Nordqvist, 23, will play with Cobra Golf equipment as she enters her third year on the LPGA Tour. A PUMA Golf-sponsored athlete since her rookie season in 2009 (for footwear and apparel), Nordqvist joins Ian Poulter, Johan Edfors, Lexi Thompson, Jason Gore, and an expanding team playing Cobra clubs.
"Anna's performance and presence on the course make her an ideal Tour ambassador for Cobra, and her signing demonstrates our focus and expansion in the women's market," says Brian Zender, Senior Vice President and General Manager of COBRA-PUMA GOLF. "She's a rising young star with a promising future ahead as a professional golfer, and we're thrilled to have her representing Cobra Golf."
"I'm really excited to be involved with this great brand," says Nordqvist. "Cobra is well-known for its innovation, technology and performance. I chose to play Cobra equipment because I'm convinced that it will help me perform better and catapult my game to the next level."
Here's what's in Anna's Cobra bag:
S3 9.5° Driver with Mitsubishi Bassarra Hawk 53g Regular flex shaft
S3 Fwy 15° with Graphite Design DI 6S shaft
Baffler Rail 3/H with Aldila NV 75S shaft
S2 Forged 4-PW with Nippon 1130 R shafts
As part of the expanded partnership agreement, Nordqvist will be prominently featured in future COBRA-PUMA GOLF marketing campaigns, and at consumer and trade events. Currently ranked No. 14 in the world, Nordqvist followed up her spectacular rookie season in 2009 by earning $442,088.50 in 2010 in just 21 events – placing her 24th among all players. She won twice on the LPGA Tour in 2009, including the McDonald's LPGA Championship — in her fifth start as a professional. Nordqvist's second victory came at the LPGA's season-ending Tour Championship. She was also awarded the Ryder Cup Wales Rookie of the Year for 2009 at the Ladies European Tour's end-of-year awards ceremony and was a key member of the European Solheim Cup Team. In 2010, she ranked in the Top 20 in Rounds Under Par, Birdies and Putts Per Green. Nordqvist also had two Top 10 finishes on the Ladies European Tour in 2010.
Growing up in Eskilstuna, Sweden, Nordqvist was involved in many different sports from an early age and shared an athletic interest with her brothers and parents. She began playing golf at age 13 because she claims she didn't want to be the worst golfer in her family. That desire quickly led to a burning passion. She eventually attended Arizona State University, where she helped lead the golf team for 2½ years before leaving to pursue her dream of playing professional golf. The six-foot-tall star now resides in Orlando.
