Cobra Amp Cell driver offers colors, adjustability

By Jason CrookMarch 23, 2013, 9:31 pm

The future of Cobra Golf is … well, bright. While it may break from the traditional mold, it's hard to deny the style Cobra is bringing to the game, and they’ve proven it with the release of their new Amp Cell driver

Featuring the widest range of colors around, the Amp Cell driver comes standard in orange, red, blue and silver. A limited edition green is also available in honor of the year's first major.

While it may be cool to have a red club, it’s even cooler to shoot red numbers – and your scorecard is where you’ll really be thankful for the time and technology Cobra put into the Amp Cell driver. While the fresh colors are the first thing that catch the eye, they are outdone by the adjustability and subsequent improvement in your drive’s distance and accuracy. The MyFly technology allows the driver to be adjusted between six settings, from 8.5 to 11.5 degrees, with two draw settings. This allows players to choose between extra loft and extra distance, depending on the situation, with the draw settings perfect for the average amateur who struggles with the slice.

Adjusting the driver head takes just seconds with a simple wrench, and the development of Cobra’s SmartPad technology – which is visible along the bottom of the clubhead – ensures that the face of the club will remain square at impact.

Another thing that really stands out with the Amp Cell driver is how hard it is to miss off the tee. Sure everyone has mishits, but Cobra has redistributed the weight in the 460 cc head to enable a 12 percent larger elliptical face with an enhanced 'sweet zone' to produce faster ball speeds and enhanced forgiveness. Therefore your misses may still be there, but hopefully will no longer ruin your day.

Watch: Tiger's Sunday birdies at the Honda

By Golf Channel DigitalFebruary 25, 2018, 6:40 pm

One day after he left a barrage of birdie opportunities out on the golf course, Tiger Woods worked his way into red figures early on Sunday.

Seven off the pace to start the day, Woods found the first fairway, hit the first green and rolled in a 20-footer for his firist birdie of the day.

After narrowly missing a 10-footer for what would have been another circle at the par-5 third, Woods came right back at the fourth, flying an approach from 148 yards to 9 feet and finishing the job.

At the par-4 eighth, Woods went with 3-wood off the tee and startled a duck that was walking down the middle of the fairway.

The duck walked away, and Tiger stuffed his approach inside nine feet, setting up his third birdie of the day.

Woods dropped his first shot of the day at the par-4 ninth after hooking his tee and then short siding himself right of the green. He made the turn in 2-under 33.

New-look Korda wins after serious jaw surgery

By Will GrayFebruary 25, 2018, 6:31 pm

If the pictures of Jessica Korda from the Honda LPGA Thailand cause you to do a double-take, you're not alone.

Korda's world-class talent was on full display this week in Asia, where she won by four shots, but so too was her new-look face. The 24-year-old underwent serious jaw surgery in December, a final attempt to address a significant overbite that led to ailments ranging from facial cramping to headaches to sleep apnea.

The procedure was intense. Doctors first broke her nose, then broke her jaw in five different places - three on the top, and two on the bottom. She now has 27 screws in her face, and the physical result still requires some adjustment for a woman who now has five career LPGA wins.

"I look at pictures of myself and I don't feel like I look like that person," Korda told Golfweek. "I don't know who that is. And then I look at pictures of my old self and that doesn't look like me either."

The Dec. 7 surgery left Korda unable to eat, with her mother reportedly feeding her through a syringe for "weeks." Korda's facial structure before the surgery was such that she was only using 20 percent of her teeth when chewing food.

But despite returning to practice only six weeks ago and still dealing with lingering numbness in her face, Korda promptly dusted a world-class field in her first start back. She shot 25 under for the week, highlighted by a second-round 62, leaving the likes of Lexi Thompson and Ariya Jutanugarn in her wake.

After a difficult winter, Korda's look may have changed but her game clearly remains unaffected.

"Coming in after surgery, I didn't know what to expect," Korda told reporters. "Obviously when I look at myself, I still don't feel like I look like myself yet. That will come. I'm just very, very happy. All the hard work I was putting in in the off-season when I could has paid off rather quickly."
