The new models include the Agera 30 (Slant Neck OS Mallet) and Supernova 20 & 30 (Slant Neck OS Fangs). Carryover models include the Grandsport-35 plumber, SuperNova single bend, and Agera single bend in black & silver colorways.
Along with the 3D Printed models Cobra is also offering a new “Cuda” mallet shape, and new hosel additions to the KING Vintage Series Putter line, all of which feature SIK Aluminum face inserts with Descending Loft Technology (DLT) as well as an Adjustable Weighting System that allows for simple weight adjustments (additional weights sold separately).
All KING Collection putters (3D Printed, $349 each, Vintage, $249 each) come standard with a Cobra SuperStroke Traxion Tour 2.0 grip and KBS Tour 120 shaft.

ROYAL ALBARTROSS PARTNERS WITH MIA’S MIRACLES FOUNDATION
London, UK (April 13, 2022) — Royal Albartross—the British premium golf and lifestyle brand— has created a new shoe to benefit Mia’s Miracles Foundation.
Part of the Fieldfox line, the limited-edition women’s shoe is called Mia’s Miracles, and 10% of the profits from each sale will be donated to the Foundation (https://mias-miracles.org).
The beloved daughter of Maria Ochoa and PGA TOUR Professional, Camilo Villegas, Mia tragically passed away from brain and spinal cancer when she was just 22 months old. Determined to help families facing similar challenges, the couple launched Mia’s Miracles with the mission of providing small blessings with large impacts, bringing smiles and positivity to children and families facing challenging circumstances with a vision that all families receive access to reliable resources and a supportive network.
“We are delighted to have made this project a reality, assist Maria and Camilo in their endeavor, and be part of Mia’s legacy,” said Alex Bartholomew.

Miura Golf Introduces New Putter Line
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (April 12, 2022) – Miura Golf today introduced the KM1 and KM2, the first putters released by the esteemed Japanese clubmaker in four years.
The KM1 and KM2 blade style putters are Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milled from the same source as the Japanese stainless-steel billets used exclusively by the Miura family.
The KM1 has softer, more rounded lines with a slightly rolled top-line, while the KM2 is designed with sharper lines and a slightly longer blade length and tri-sole. Both new offerings share the same Miura DNA, with a deep milled face with a satin finish, a head weight of 360 grams and a chrome stepless steel shaft with premium leather grips.
Both the KM1 and KM2 are available with either standard or midsize grips and retail for $999 each. Golfers can purchase the KM1 and KM2 and all other Miura products fully assembled at www.Miuragolf.com.
New PXG GEN5 Lineup of Drivers, Fairways, Hybrids, and Irons Raze Par
PXG has introduced a new line of GEN5 Drivers, Fairways, Hybrids, and Irons. The new golf clubs are said to deliver significantly increased moment of inertia (MOI), faster ball speeds, longer distances, and tighter dispersion.
PXG 0311 GEN5 Irons
PXG 0311 GEN5 Irons employ a new proprietary core, XCOR2TM, and a Power ChannelTM behind the face. The Power Channel supports additional face loading at impact, increases the coefficient of restitution (COR) and transfers more energy back into the golf ball for faster ball speeds and more distance.
GEN5 Irons also integrate Precision Weighting Technology, a sizeable adjustable weight located near the center-of-gravity (CG) on the back of the clubhead.
PXG 0311 GEN5 Drivers, Fairways, & Hybrids
PXG says its GEN5 drivers, fairways and hybrids deliver up to 37-percent higher MOI in select models because of advances in head shape and internal structures.
Shared technology presented across the GEN5 Woods lineup includes a Full Aluminum Vapor (AV) Carbon Fiber Crown, an internal Supported Weight Structure, Precision Weighting Technology, and Robotic Polishing.
