Poulter tweeted last Wednesday that he would be leaving Cobra Puma after eight years with the company.
Poulter plays Titleist wedges and has played Titleist fairway woods and hybrids during his time with Cobra Puma. He has also used a Titleist Pro V1x ball for the majority of his career.
Based on the photo accompanying the tweet above, Poulter’s new deal involves 14 clubs, a staff bag, as well as FootJoy shoes. It looks like he’ll play a Titleist 915D2 or 915D3 driver, a 915F fairway wood and two 915H hybrids, as well as a combo iron set that includes Titleist CBs and MBs.
Poulter will join Jordan Spieth, Jason Dufner, Zach Johnson and Adam Scott as Titleist’s most high-profile Tour players.
