Lexi Thompson re-signs with Cobra Puma Golf
Lexi Thompson, who partnered with Cobra Puma Golf in 2010 immediately after turning professional, was the first golfer to sign with both brands following the merger.
Since then, Lexi, who is ranked #5 in the world, and one of the longest in driving distance on the LPGA Tour, has been a key brand ambassador – dressed to the nines in PUMA Golf footwear, accessories and apparel, and going low on course with her COBRA Golf equipment.
Here are just a few of our favourite Puma outfits and footwear from Lexi’s career:
Bob Philion, President & CEO, Cobra Puma Golf said “Lexi transcends golf. She has established herself not only as a world-class golfer and one of the top personalities in the industry, but also as an incredible athlete and role model,”
“In the past six years she has helped us grow our women’s business and establish our brand as the go-to source for stylish, fun, high-performance equipment, footwear and apparel for women. We are excited to extend our relationship with her as she continues her career, inspiring the next generation of golfers.”

When speaking about extending her contract Lexi said:
“They are a fun, innovative and exciting partner, keeping me looking good, comfortable and prepared with first-class equipment so I can focus on winning, training and being the best athlete I can be.”
Lexi’s is an old hand when it comes playing golf on tour, she burst onto the national golf scene at 12 years old, setting the record as the youngest-ever qualifier to play in the U.S. Women’s Open.
By 16 she was already a winner on the LPGA Tour, now, at just 21 years old she has seven LPGA wins to her name and in 2014 won her first major – the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
This summer she participated in the Olympic Games in Rio, representing women’s golf as the sport made its triumphant return to the summer games for the first time since 1904.
Lexi’s pedigree will be on show this week when she adds some girl power to the field at the Franklin Templeton Shootout, joining the 24-person field as the only female golfer.
She will be paired with fellow Cobra Puma Golf athlete, Bryson DeChambeau for the 54-hole team event. Thompson will be the first female participant since Annika Sorenstam in 2006.
