Ian Poulter Debuts White Driver

COLORFUL ENGLISHMAN IAN POULTER has put a white driver in his golf bag. The novel stick is a Cobra Limited Edition ZL Driver. There will only be 500 ZL Drivers, each white in color and marked with a production serial number.

The driver has an adjustable hosel, and when Cobra (now owned by PUMA) says white, they mean 100 percent white. The club features an all-white Fujikura’s Motore Speeder shaft and an all-white Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G grip. It retails for $625.

Poulter tweeted this to his 1,047,970 followers: “Played lovely today game is in great shape for the weekend. I hope you all like my New Cobra Limited Edition White ZL driver. It’s awesome”

Ian is playing in the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, where he’s carded a pair of 70s. He’s tied for ninth at the halfway point along with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Padraig Harrington, Robert Allenby, Nick Watney and a few others.

I would totally sport that driver - I dig the look. I'm sure plenty of folks won't like it but that's fine by me.

It's definitely different. I would use it too, but it all comes down to performance. Mr. Poulter can easily pull it off.

I've thought it might look a little strange at first, a white club behind a white ball, but I expect you would get used to it.

I'm a compeditive gofer and after i met ian and saw his driver in maui, i just had to have it! it is the best driver that i have ever owned. the driver is quiet, well balanced,has a wonderful feel and best of all, it's all white and easy on the eyes. it is also one of the most unique drivers as well. the only thing that there is to dislike about it, is the annoying people that come up to you to ask if it is the new R11.
