Rickie Fowler signs long-term extension with Cobra PUMA
Rickie Fowler has penned a fresh deal with Cobra PUMA to keep him as the face of the brand heading into the 2015 golf season. The new contract will see Rickie continue to wear PUMA attire in competition while also using all the new Cobra Golf equipment as well.
Fowler joined Cobra PUMA in 2009 after turning pro and made an immediate impression on both the fans and his peers on the greens by strutting out in an all-orange outfit for every round of the event – a nod to his alma mater, Oklahoma State University.
"I'm extremely proud to be part of an innovative, exciting and creative company," said Fowler. "Cobra Puma Golf and I have shared incredible success over the last five years and I’m looking forward to the next chapter."
The 26-year-old will be eager to follow up from a 2014 which saw him finish in the top-five in all four major championships and amass more than $4.8 million in earnings during the 2013-14 PGA Tour season.
"Rickie defines the new generation of golf – his progressive approach to the game, on and off course, is in line with the values of Cobra PUMA Golf," said Bob Philion, president and CEO of Cobra PUMA Golf. "He is a dynamic, passionate and determined golfer who has been an integral part of the Cobra PUMA Golf family since he first turned pro. His commitment to the brand is unwavering and we are excited that he will continue his professional career with us."
Fowler will be a part of the field at next week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Arizona.
