Rickie Fowler is one of the brightest stars on the PGA Tour, coming in at No. 9 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

The 28-year-old has four career PGA Tour wins, but his looking for his first major title. He’s got top five finishes in all four majors, including a tie for second at the 2014 U.S. Open. This week’s U.S. Open, the 117th edition, is at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin. And Fowler is off to a hot start. His 7-under 65 after Thursday’s first round had him alone at the top of the leaderboard. Fowler began Saturday’s third round at 6-under par, a stroke behind the leaders.

Fowler stands out on the course, usually dressed in bright colors. He’s normally seen sporting a stylish Puma shirt and a Cobra hat, as they’re two of his sponsors. In fact, is arguably the most popular player on the Tour to use Cobra clubs. He uses Cobra drivers, woods, utilities (when he carries them in the bag), irons, and wedges. Fowler uses a Scotty Cameron (Titleist) putter and Titleist golf balls.

And how about Fowler’s golf bag for the week? He probably made a few new fans in Wisconsin when he debuted his Cobra bag featuring a yellow and green color-scheme reminiscent of the Green Bay Packers uniforms.


Rickie Fowler’s Driver

For a driver, Fowler uses the Cobra King F7+ set at an 8.5 degree loft. The shaft is an Aldila NV 2KXV Blue 70X, 43.5 inches.

This club is obviously custom-designed to Fowler’s swing, so getting your hands on the exact one is probably a difficult task. But the Cobra King F7 and F7+ standard drivers are widely available.

The driver features a Textreme Carbon Fiber Crown, which gives more weight lower and deeper into the club head resulting in maximum distance and forgiveness. The Cobra King F7 model is basically three drivers in one. There are CG settings in the front, back, and heel so you can get three different ball flights which can be changed depending on your swing.

Rickie Fowler’s 3-Wood

Fowler uses a Cobra Fly-Z+ with an Aldila Tour Blue 75TX shaft. The wood comes in 3-4W or 5-7W with Fowler using the 3-4w set at 13 degrees.

The loft can be set at five different degrees — 13, 13.5, 14.5, 15.5, or 16 degrees. Thanks to a large sweet spot, you’ll get excellent distance, accuracy and forgiveness, something we all can use on the course. Even sometimes a player of Fowler’s caliber. The club also comes with two interchangeable weights (12 grams and 2 grams), so you can change your center of gravity positions depending on your swing style or desired trajectory.

Rickie Fowler’s Wedges

Fowler uses Cobra King V-Grind Wedges in 50, 55 and 59 degree. The shafts are True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400.

Available in six different degrees — 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 — the clubs feature precision grooves to help with spin, a necessity in the short game.
