COBRA PUMA GOLF Inks Deal with International Superstar Jesper Parnevik
CARLSBAD, CA (JANUARY 10, 2013) –Jesper Parnevik, known for his 14 professional wins, Ryder Cup record, flipped brim caps, style on the course and, of course, his latest Gangnam Style viral video, is making his way back to the PGA Tour following some time away due to medical injury - and he’s coming back to the course in style with the COBRA PUMA GOLF team.
“COBRA PUMA GOLF and Jesper Parnevik are a perfect match,” said Bob Philion, President of COBRA PUMA GOLF. “He has been a world class performer and a pioneer of modern golf fashion on the global golf stage for over 20 years; making him the perfect blend of performance and style that COBRA PUMA GOLF embraces. We’re excited to see him return to the PGA Tour and embody the COBRA PUMA GOLF spirit on and off the course.”
Jesper will kick off the 2013 season at the Humana Challenge on January 17th, 2013. This will mark the first tournament Jesper plays fully equipped with COBRA Golf clubs and PUMA Golf apparel, accessories and footwear. Following the Humana Challenge, Jesper will make an appearance at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show at COBRA PUMA GOLF’s Demo Day (tee number 8) and booth (1143).
“I’m thrilled to be part of the COBRA PUMA GOLF team; they’re not afraid to do things a little differently,” commented Jesper. “I’ve played COBRA and worn PUMA in the past; both brands provide top performing gear that shakes things up on the course. I’m so excited to have the new 2013 gear ready to go, and add my style to the line at the same time; COBRA PUMA GOLF is a great fit for me.”
Jesper’s new COBRA bag consists of:
- AMP CELLTM Pro Driver in Silver; MyFlyTM set to 7.5°
- AMP CELL Pro Fairway (prototype) in Silver, MyFly set to 13°

Jesper will be wearing products from PUMA Golf’s Spring / Summer 2013 Collection along with the all new Tux Lux golf shoe, part of PUMA Golf’s Lux footwear collection. Like the name implies, it is a sleek style that offers the perfect blend of luxury materials and performance. A decoupled TPU forefoot and heel allow both parts of the foot to work independently, S2Quill® cleat technology provides maximum grip on the course and stormCELL waterproof technology protects against Mother Nature no matter how scary she gets. Jesper, true to himself, will be putting together fashion forward looks from the PUMA Golf Collection and rock a brand new, cycling-inspired cap complete with his signature flipped brim.
Jesper will be also part of COBRA Golf’s 2013 ‘What’s Your Fly’ advertising campaign and be featured in print, online and television ads as well as in store signage alongside Rickie Fowler, Ian Poulter and Jonas Blixt.
