Cobra Golf was founded by Thomas Crow in 1973. The company developed its first set of forged irons in 1991, and designed its first line of oversized irons a year later. The SS-I irons were introduced in 2003 and were rated as the top-selling irons in on-course pro shops that year, according to the Golf Datatech year-end report. Top professional golfers such as Ian Poulter, J.B. Holmes and Camilo Villegas use Cobra products.
