CARLSBAD, CA (November 7, 2012) – Today, COBRA Golf and celebrity, John O’Hurley, released the first video in a three part series about Mankind’s Greatest Achievements. The video features John O’Hurley discussing some of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements, ultimately presenting the COBRA Baffler, the mother of all great achievements.

John O’Hurley, most notably known for his role as J. Peterman on Seinfeld, is an avid golfer and lover of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements, such as the wheel, double bacon cheeseburgers and bikinis. When he had the opportunity to present the world with Mankind’s Greatest Achievements, he couldn’t pass it up. What he didn’t realize was that he was going to be releasing a secret to the world: A group of Russian-speaking, Native American scientists from Madagascar have discovered that the COBRA Baffler is responsible for all of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements.

The Baffler was created by COBRA’s founder, Tom Crow, almost forty years ago and revolutionized the game of golf. With rails on the sole, the Baffler made it easy to get the ball into the air, no matter what the lie. In fall of 2012, COBRA introduced the new Baffler Hybrid Iron set, making golf even easier. With a progressive, oversized face profile and railed sole, the Baffler Hybrid Iron set takes direct influence from the Baffler, the mother of all of Mankind’s Greatest Achievements. The Baffler Hybrid Irons deliver golfers an easy to hit iron that delivers maximum forgiveness, higher launch and improved distance; truly making it Golf Made EasyTM.

The video, ‘Mankind’s Greatest Achievements’ is the first in a three-part series from COBRA Golf and John O’Hurley. The next episode, ‘The World’s Most Baffling Questions’ will be released in January and the final episode, ‘Life’s Greatest Difficulties’ in April.
