Sponsored by Puma for footwear and apparel since her rookie year in 2009, Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist now joins the likes of Ian Poulter, Johan Edfors, Lexi Thompson, Jason Gore, and an ever expanding team of professional golfers using Cobra clubs.
The 23 year old followed a spectacular rookie season with earnings of $442,088 in 2010, competing in only 21 events, she is currently ranked at No 14 in the world.
Brian Zender, Senior Vice President and General Manager of COBRA-PUMA GOLF said:
“Anna’s performance and presence on the course make her an ideal Tour ambassador for Cobra, and her signing demonstrates our focus and expansion in the women’s market. She’s a rising young star with a promising future ahead as a professional golfer, and we’re thrilled to have her representing Cobra Golf.”
An excited Anna Nordqvist said:
“I’m really excited to be involved with this great brand, Cobra is well-known for its innovation, technology and performance. I chose to play Cobra equipment because I’m convinced that it will help me perform better and catapult my game to the next level.”
Growing up in Eskilstuna, Sweden, Nordqvist was involved in many different sports from an early age and shared an athletic interest with her brothers and parents. She began playing golf at age 13 because she claims she didn’t want to be the worst golfer in her family.
That desire quickly led to a burning passion. She eventually attended Arizona State University, where she helped lead the golf team for 2½ years before leaving to pursue her dream of playing professional golf. The six-foot-tall star now resides in Orlando.
Anna will now feature prominently as the face of COBRA-PUMA Golf marketing campaigns as well as attending consumer and trade events on behalf of the sponsor.
