Cobra Golf is putting its money where it’s mouth is, giving consumers a chance to see for themselves through a new partnership with Arccos Golf. For those not yet familiar with Arccos, click here for a primer on the game-changing GPS and shot-tracking platform that delivers tour-quality analytic data.

Cobra and Arccos have joined forces on a new promotion in which consumers who buy any of the new King line of drivers (The King LTD, King F6 and King F6+) are given — for free — an Arccos Driver system. It’s an intriguing marriage between a high-profile club manufacturer and one of the hottest tech products in the golfing industry.
