Building the Ferrari Golf Collection Driver
The development of the Ferrari Golf Collection Driver was an impressive collaboration between COBRA Golf club engineers and Ferrari’s aerodynamic and materials engineers. We worked together to bring new thoughts and innovations to one of our best drivers—the ZL Encore. Using Ferrari’s knowledge in aerodynamics and COBRA’s knowledge in golf equipment, we created a one of a kind performance driver.
“Working with the Ferrari aerodynamic team was an excellent experience. Their expertise helped us think differently about the design of the club head, resulting in a superior driver that delivers serious speed and distance gains,” says Tom Preece, Vice President of COBRA Club Research and Development. “This was an exciting project because my team got to work directly with Ferrari engineers, who are experts in their field of aerodynamics and materials usage. And together we created a driver that will increase club head speed and provide superior distance for golfers of all abilities.”
The driver combines COBRA’s proprietary E9 Face Technology™ with superior aerodynamics derived from Ferrari experts, resulting in a driver with faster club head speed and greater distance gains.The resulting driver features a unique, super strong titanium alloy face combined with an ultra light weight titanium alloy chassis with carbon fiber in the crown and sole. These materials combined with the aerodynamic head design, internal tungsten weighting, Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft and genuine leather grip make the Ferrari Golf Collection Driver a top quality club that delivers superior performance.
The driver features not only the latest in golf club technology, but also technology directly from Ferrari experts to create a driver that is truly unique in the golf market today. “Based on the positive response we have received, we expect to expand the equipment in this collection in the future,” says Tom Preece.
