Holmes_450x600 J.B Holmes has a new toy. The Kentucky native switched to a new driver just before the PGA Championship, a Cobra L4V X, which is intended for players with extremely high swing speeds. (Um, I think J.B. qualifies.)
For players who really pack a wallop, the LV4 X is designed to create a high-launch, low-spin drive that maximizes distance. The face has no bias, so skilled players should be able to work the ball with either a draw or a fade.
According to Cobra's Web site, these are the clubs that J.B. has in his bag at Oakland Hills: Driver         Cobra L4V X (8 °) with an Aldilla Voodoo XVS8 shaftFairway      Cobra Speed LD-X Pro (13°, 18°)Irons            Cobra Pro CB (3-PW)Wedges       Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled (54°, 60°)Putter         Rife Barbados bellyBall             Titleist Pro V1x (Photo by Stan Honda/AFP/Getty Images)
