Cobra Puma Golf has announced a long-term partnership with Bryson DeChambeau the 22-year-old who last year became only the fifth golfer ever to win the NCAA men’s individual championship and the U.S. Amateur in the same calendar year.

He shares in our mission of Game Enjoyment and our desire to grow the game and make it more fun and inclusive for golfers of all levels,” said Robert Philion, president and CEO of Cobra Puma Golf.
“Right away, we noticed his progressive approach to the game, which is rooted in science and art, along with his passion and dedication. We can’t be more thrilled to have him as part of our Cobra Puma Golf family,” he said.
DeChambeau added that he has found the perfect partner in Cobra Puma Golf.
“The Cobra and Puma brands complement my style, attitude and desire to be innovative, while allowing me to continue to be myself, and think outside the box. I’m really thrilled to be part of this cutting-edge and creative company,” he said.
