Bryson DeChambeau Captures First International Victory with Cobra’s New King F9 Speedback Driver in the Bag

Bryson DeChambeau dominated the field at the Dubai Desert Classic, cruising to his first international victory, sixth professional victory, setting a new tournament record 24-under par, in the process. DeChambeau, a Cobra Puma Golf ambassador, shot a stunning 8-under 64 in the final round to finish seven strokes ahead of the nearest challenger, equipped with Cobra’s highly-anticipated King F9 Speedback driver and Forged One Length irons in the bag, and dressed head-to-toe in apparel, accessories and footwear from Puma Golf, including the celebrated PWRADAPT Leather golf shoes.

DeChambeau’s King F9 driver, made its debut in his bag the same week as his win at the Shriners Open. The driver features the brand’s breakthrough SpeedbackTechnology, which, for the first time in golf, successfully combines a highly aerodynamic clubhead shape with low CG.

Speedback is a game-changing advancement in the way a driver is engineered. The combination of an efficient aerodynamic shape and an engineered weight structure on the sole improves club speed while maintaining a low, deep CG to create the most efficient transfer of energy to the ball. Utilizing a CNC Precision Milled Face, created using industry-leading face manufacturing technology, allows for a thinner and hotter face design that has shown ball speed increases up to 1.5 mph when tested against a traditional, hand-polished face.  These technologies fuse to deliver the ultimate formula for speed and extreme distance.
