All White, right? Cobra Tour Professional Ian Poulter Wins The Hong Kong Open

 Poulter uses “All-White” Limited Edition ZL Driver in victory

CARLSBAD, CA (November 22, 2010) – Cobra Golf Tour Professional Ian Poulter captured the UBS Hong Kong Open with a 22-under-par 258 Sunday, securing the 11th position in the Official World Golf Ranking. Poulter’s final-round 67 helped him claim his 10th win on the European Tour, after posting scores of 67, 60 and 64 in the first three rounds. The victory follows a T6 finish at the Barclays Singapore Open, an event Poulter won last year when he first put the Cobra ZL Driver in play.

Before arriving in Hong Kong, the 34-year-old Poulter was ranked No. 14 in the Official World Golf Ranking. But this victory moved him up three notches, and further fortified his confidence in his Cobra Golf equipment.

“My Cobra driver and irons have really helped me boost my game this year,” said Poulter. “I am especially impressed with the ZL Driver, this is my third win using it and the first using the all-white version. I like the visual of it, it’s really very cool. It’s unique and different than any driver I’ve seen — plus its performance is great, too. Just like the ZL Driver that I’ve used all year.”

En route to victory, Poulter was playing Cobra Golf clubs, including the Limited Edition ZL Driver (9.5°) with a Fujikura Motore Speeder shaft, Cobra Pro CB 3- through 6-iron with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts, and Cobra Pro MB 7-iron through pitching wedge with Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts. Poulter earned his first victory in the U.S. earlier this year at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, where he also used a Cobra ZL Driver.

The Englishman’s score of 60 on the tournament’s second day included 10 birdies, tied the Tour’s 18-hole scoring record, and was one of his personal bests. “I would rank it pretty high, to be honest,” he said. “I hit 61 in Italy in 2002 I think, so it’s my lowest round of golf to date. So I would have to rate it up there. I played great all week. It’s just nice to be able to have another ‘W’.”
