COBRA PUMA Golf's full-range portfolio includes COBRA’s high-performance drivers, fairways, hybrids, wedges, irons, and putters, as well as PUMA Golf’s sport lifestyle-inspired footwear, apparel and accessories. Fusing performance and style, COBRA PUMA Golf brings a focus on innovation, technology, compelling design and superior performance with an edge to the global golf marketplace.

New this spring, COBRA Golf introduced its fourth generation of KING Forged TEC Irons, which feature three significant improvements including a 5-step forged body and face, a sleeker topline with reduced offset, and a lighter and softer foam for improved sound and feel. The irons carry over a hollow body design with tungsten weighting and PWRSHELL technology that together provides enhanced distance with improved stability in a more compact shape. The Forged TEC Irons are available in a variable or ONE Length setup, which are both fully forged. The 2022 edition debuts a third model to the family with the Forged TEC X, which offers more forgiveness in a players’ game-improvement shape. All three models can be custom fitted for golfers to enhance performance.

Head Professional, Chilliwack Golf Club
What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
The people you work with and the people in this association, they all have the same passion for the game of golf, it's great competition in events, but also friendly at the same time. It's great to get out to different events and meet all the other professionals from around the province.

Who has influenced your career the most, and how?
My Dad for sure, I started golfing when I was 5 years old. I had plastic clubs and would run around 18 holes of golf with him.

Which significant accomplishments are you most proud of?
The direction Chilliwack Golf Club is headed and the team we have put in place here. It's been a challenging few years, but our new Superintendent (Kaleb Fisher) has done a fantastic job turning the conditions around and I encourage everyone to come check out the facility in the near future.

If you had to share one piece of advice with a new member of our Association, what would it be?
Stick with it, it takes a lot of hard work, dedication & time to get to the Head Professional level. Be open to learning new things every day because it's bound to happen.
