ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “On a weekly basis, I would say maybe 10 hours during the week I spend working out. There's quite a bit of time, too, in physio treatment. As far as flexibility, the strongest and most flexible people I've ever seen are gymnasts and people that do Cirque du Soleil and they're pound for pound the strongest people, so I don't see any difference between flexibility and strength; the more strength you have, the less flexible you are because that's not true. You work on your flexibility and you work on your strength and try to make sure you get the most out of both.”

BRAIN TEASER: Can you name the next tournament on the PGA TOUR in the United States?

MORE STUFF: There is no denying Rickie Fowler is popular. But can he sell golf clubs? COBRA Golf is hoping so. The company announced a new line of players irons designed in tandem with Fowler. The new KING Forged CB/MB progressive iron set features the same design and technologies that Fowler trusts.

“These high-performance COBRA irons consistently deliver the workability and shot-shaping control that I need to be competitive on course. I’ve been playing them for a few years, and know better players are going to appreciate the sleek look and soft feel, along with the ability to work the ball without sacrificing forgiveness,” said Fowler.

The COBRA Golf KING Forged CB/MB Iron set has a cavity-back (CB) shape in the 4-6 irons to a traditional muscle-back (MB) shape in the 7-PW. The CB design (in the 4-6 irons), features a new muscle cavity, according to the company, that helps maintain a workable trajectory. 
        
The KING Forged CB/MB Irons will be available beginning November 2, 2018 in store and on www.cobragolf.com.

IS WHITE RIGHT? Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company has introduced Ft. Worth WHITE Irons. “The Ft. Worth White Irons are illustrative of how Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company interacts with and listens to its customers,” said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. “On the heels of our sales success with the Ft. Worth Black Irons, we found many ‘traditionalists’ who wanted to play this iron design with the standard nickel-chrome finish, so we accommodated them with this launch.”

White continued, “As with the Ft. Worth BLACK irons, the WHITE irons will be custom-built clubs to individual golfer’s specifications. But, most importantly, unlike other brands who launch a product that is not readily available, our exclusive factory-direct business model allows us to put these irons in the hands of golfers immediately and at hundreds of dollars less than they would pay for competitive products through green-grass and retail channels.”

The Ft. Worth White Irons feature a traditional forged blade design. It also has a proprietary enhanced V-Sole Technology, which is the most versatile sole in golf, according to the company. It combines a high bounce leading edge and low bounce trailing edge on the sole. The bounce angles have been re-engineered slightly on each club head to eliminate 'grab' by the turf, especially on less-than-full shots.

While the Company remains committed to consistent 4-degree loft gaps between each iron for optimal distance gapping and to minimize loft ‘compression’ at the short end of the set, the Ft. Worth WHITE Irons will only be offered in one loft matrix. The mid-high launch profile (22 to 46-degrees) is preferred by the vast majority of Ben Hogan iron players. 

The Ft. Worth White Irons are available for purchase at www.BenHoganGolf.com exclusively for $700.00 per seven-piece set (#4 iron - Pitching Wedge).

YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE: Former World No.1 Martin Kaymer’s game has slipped in recent years, resulting in the Ryder Cup hero merely spectating as Europe dominated in Paris. "As strange as it sounds, I am a better player right now than I was back in 2011 when I was No.1 in the world." READ MORE>>>
