Smarter Ways to Lower Scores 2018

Take Part In the 'Cobra Smarter Ways to Lower Scores 2018’ experience

Golf Monthly is teaming up with Cobra Puma Golf again this year to offer two golfers the opportunity to lower their scores and take their game to the next level in 2018 the ‘smarter way’.

Cobra Puma Golf has long been about innovation and performance, and its exciting new 2018 range is no exception, whether it be the new King F8 and F8+ drivers with their CNC-milled faces, the forgiving King F8 irons, or the striking new King Black wedges with their Dimonized Black Metal finish.

And this year, the Cobra Connect shot-tracking system in association with Arccos will be available throughout the bag to help you better analyse all areas of your game.

Two Golf Monthly readers can now reap the benefits of Cobra Puma Golf's technological expertise for themselves via ‘Smarter Ways to Lower Scores 2018’.

Last year, readers Mark Smith and Lawrence Stocker enjoyed the 'Smarter Ways' experience

The selected duo will enjoy…

  • A ‘driver thru wedges’ Cobra fitting session at the Cobra Fitting Centre, Silvermere, Surrey on Tuesday March 13, 2017 with Cobra expert fitter and Brand Experience Manager, Joe Folker
  • Coaching from Cobra Puma PGA Pros, including renowned short-game expert, James Ridyard
