It has been one of the industry’s worst-kept secrets – thanks in no small part to the release of the orange AMP driver – but it has been officially announced today that American star Rickie Fowler has left Titleist for Cobra.

The 23-year-old will play the Cobra AMP driver and 3-wood as well as the AMP Pro prototype irons.

As part of the Cobra-Puma team, he will continue to wear Puma clothing and footwear.

“I am so excited to have the Cobra sticks in my bag and be a full part of the Cobra-Puma golf team,” he said.

“I’ve been hitting the AMP Driver great; I’m getting a lot more distance and the orange details look really fresh. I can’t wait to get out at Torrey Pines and put my new Cobra clubs into play.”
