They're called the Cobra RF Rev33 irons and get their name from the fact that 33 revisions were made to the design before Fowler was content with the end result.
The return of golf’s megastars on Sunday at TaylorMade’s Driving Relief charity event will have a completely different look than what viewers are accustomed to seeing when they tune in to televised tour coverage. A skins game format. No caddies. Sunday bags. A lot has changed since professional golf went on hiatus at the Players Championship.
While the players haven’t been competing on the course, some have been working on their gear behind the scenes. That includes Rickie Fowler, who plans to debut a new set of Cobra RF blades at Seminole Golf Club. The irons have an identical look to the “RF Protos” he put in play at the end of last year, but instead of sticking with a traditional steel finish, Fowler chose to go outside the box and select a bronze-gold finish that’s unlike anything in the marketplace.
“He had a vision in his head of what he thought would be really cool, unique and pleasing for him to look at,” Ben Schomin, Cobra’s tour operation manager, told GOLF.com. “I spoke to R&D and told them this should just be his golf club. We’re making it for him anyway, so any tweaks or changes should be his.”
The iron creation process for Fowler’s new blades started two years ago, but according to Schomin, it really started to pick up steam when the 5-time PGA Tour winner made a trip to Cobra HQ ahead of the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open. During the visit, Schomin and Fowler went through the archives and looked at old blades to gather inspiration, but the more they looked at old product, the more Fowler realized he wanted to go away from the conventional muscleback blade look and build his set around one club in particular: the 7-iron.
