• Cobra Tour TV Commercials

    players_tv_shot.jpgThe members of Cobra Golf's USPGA Tour Staff gathered in Palm Springs, CA to shoot the 2007 edition of our TV commercials. David Feherty spent some time with each of our USPGA Tour Staff developing the new TV commercials. They turned out great! I think you will really enjoy the footage. They will start airing on TV in March. David Feherty did a great job. He is an amazing entertainer and all the USPGA Tour Staff really enjoys spending time with him.

    We shot the TV commercials from 7:00am until around 7:00pm. Ten TV commercials were shot at Desert Willow Golf Club in Palm Springs, CA. Look for the new TV commercials to start airing in March.

    truck2.jpgChris Tuten - Cobra Tour Rep - I got up early and took the plane from a Cobra TV Commercial shoot back to Pebble with a quick stop in San Francisco. The food court by gate 79 is amazing, the best gourmet fast food around. Dean Wilson and I flew into Monterey. He had his Masters information with him. He must be exited to be playing in his first Masters. Camilo will make his debut also. He is pumped.

    On Wednesday, Camilo and J.B. both came by the trailer. It was raining and the trailer provides our staff and their caddies a place to call home with Internet access, healthy snacks, and a place to store things like extra clubs.

    Camilo finished T11 and J.B. finished T16.

    Also on Sunday, Camilo's brother Manuel won the 2007 Gator Invitational in Gainesville. It's the first collegiate victory for Manny. Also the Florida Gators won the team title. Way to go!!!

    tv_shoot_2.jpgChris Tuten - Cobra Tour Rep - I flew to Burbank to film a Cobra TV commercial. The commercial will introduce our new line of drivers called Speed Limit Dimension or Speed LD for short. Todd Colburn asked me to appear in the commercial as a player swinging the new LD.

    It was a 9 hour shoot with me swinging against a blue background. It was a really fun day. I had a great time with the crew and look forward to seeing the finished product.

    Monday (02.05.07)

    pebble2.jpgChris Tuten - Cobra Tour Rep - On Monday, Bryan and I got our bending molds from R&D and we went to work. It's amazing how much you can do to get a specific look or ball flight by adjusting the hosel. J.B. likes to see the ball fall right or fade. It isn't an ordinary fade, it's a 320 yard power fade. We started with the new Speed Pro S 8.5 degree loft driver. The actual lofts measured 9.0-9.5 before adjusting. I bent them open to get the actual loft to 8.6 degrees. The shaft J.B. uses is a Diamana Blue Board 83X. This thing came out perfect. His launch was around 12 degrees and spin rates were at 2400. And most importantly it falls to the right. We got on the TracMan and his average swings were at 182 ball speed, and when he cranked it up he was at 190mph. It drew a crowd of club reps, shaft reps, and other tour players. It's very impressive to watch. I hope you get to see it one day. He ended up leading driving distance for the entire field, around 300 yards in wet conditions.

    We also fitted J.B. with a new set of Cobra Forged CB's with Camilo's custom grind. I guess he liked them because he made a hole in one on #3 at Spyglass with a 9 iron. They are fitted with Dynamic Gold S400's.

    Camilo is hitting the ball really well. He is getting used to his new Cobra Speed Pro S driver more every day. I asked him if we needed to adjust the face angle on his 8.5 and he said, "Tutie, I am hitting this Pro S perfect." So we went to work on a back up and we are close, with his back up fading a touch more than his gamer. I try and have all my staff travel with a back up driver so if something happens to the gamer we aren't struggling to get something like it made in a hurry.
