Lexi Thompson cruises to victory at the CME Group Tour Championship
With a new KING F9 Speedback driver in her bag
COBRA PUMA GOLF Athlete Lexi Thompson ended the 2018 season on a high note, atop the leaderboard of the CME Group Tour Championship, capturing her 10th career victory. With this win, Thompson is projected to move to number two in the world.
Thompson shot a 68 on Saturday, heading into the final round with a three-shot lead. She continued her magnificent play with a 70 on Sunday, to win the tournament by 4 shots with a bag of COBRA clubs including a brand new, KING F9 SPEEDBACK driver. Dressed head-to-toe in PUMA Golf apparel, accessories and footwear from the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection Thompson looked great while playing great.
Thompson debuted the new KING F9 SPEEDBACK driver in the bag at the TOTO Japan Classic a few weeks ago. The F9 driver features COBRA’s breakthrough SPEEDBACK Technology, 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.
