    So here we are at the end of another Cobra Connect Challenge and what a season it was!! Our 5 fine competitors have surpassed the promise they have shown from the start and have delivered the finest iteration of the CCC yet, I bow down to you all Each and everyone of you has bought skill, tenacity and some humour to this challenge that has made it by far the best one yet. @edingc your attention to detail, courage to make a swing change in the middle of this and intestinal fortitude in the face of ever lengthening odds was a pleasure to watch, You're a class act. @GB13 Grayson my boy, I backed you from the start but it just wasn't to be. You came out firing burns left, right and centre, followed up with bombs and low scores but again swing tweaks stopped your march to the title. I really liked that you took your mom with you for the alternate shot week, that was a very cool move. @Headhammer wow, what could have been!! That Lexi tweet blew my mind and your social media game was on point. With out the broken wing you could have really pushed hard for the title but that's life for you. That nearest the pin challenge has to be the closest to a CCC hole in one ever!! @daviddvm what can I say to a man who has picked up the one lengths and swaggered around like you've been gaming them for years? Number one in the irons only, 2 in the burger week, you made a mockery of the difficulty of changing clubs and I applaud you for that. And that brings me to our winner... @B.Boston What a competitor!! Right from the start we threw everything we had at you and you just threw it right back. You laughed with us, you laughed at us but all the while you were playing brilliant golf and building a commanding lead. The quality of your reviews and your meme game were beyond compare and I can't think of a more deserving winner, I salute you!! and it's time...

    ... LUCY!!! You got some Splainin' to do!!! I have always been a fan of getting fit. I have been fit for individual clubs many times for reviews or at the PGA Show. But thinking back it has been 5 years since I was fit for any club. And evidently 5 years from age 62-67 is kinda like dog years. My swing speed with a driver has always been a pretty consistent 99-100 with a few 101/102's thrown in if I really went after it. Turns out I am consistently at 94-95 so I have lost a good 5 mph or more and with a smooth swing and transition, I was playing drivers with too little loft, too stiff a shaft and too heavy. Spin was pretty consistent at around 1800-1900. This fitting facility uses Titleist Tour Soft balls and they certainly spin less then my TP5's but still too low. Going from a Tensei Orange 65 gm stiff flex to an Atmos Blue TS 55 r flex increased my launch and spin to 2300. Going above and beyond, he busted out a few new TP5's from a dozen he had and my spin increased to 2600 giving me max carry and my highest total distance. Smash Factor with my driver was 1.45-1.47 but with the lighter r flex it was 1.50 with a few 1.49's. What an eye opener. ... Here is the problem for better players. I told him I shot 5 rounds in a row under par with my T100-S and KK 105gm stiff shafts this summer. He did not blink and said "I have no doubt you are capable of that. But you did it with your equipment working against you, not for you." He would only let me swing 1 or 2 times with a combo he didn't like because he said I changed my swing to accommodate the club and of course my club should accommodate my swing, not the other way around. He knew before I said it felt too light r too heavy or too stiff or too soft. The iron I hit best was the P770 with a Recoil 95 r flex shaft. Icing on the cake was when he had me hit a few knockdown shots with my irons, then handed me the 770/Recoil r-flex combo. The knockdown was just so much easier with the softer flex because of course I was unloading the shaft with the r flex but not the s flex. ... One of my go to clubs is my TM UDi 2 iron with a stiff flex 95gm HRZDUS Black. He watched me hit 2 shots that I hit well and said "Is your typical miss a push and sometimes a weak push?" He handed me the new #3 DHy and first shot was really nice, higher and dead straight and 5 yds longer than my UDi. I hit a few more all virtually the same and it was just so easy. He had me hit my UDi again and it felt like a tree trunk after the lighter and softer Diamana. Again, I thought I was hitting the 75 gm s flex but it was the 65 gm r flex. LUCY!!! ... So the good news is I can make the game easier on myself with equipment that fits me better at age 67. The bad news is I have a lot of thinking, selling and buying to do. I just can't recommend getting fit enough. I have always been a big believer but spent most of my golfing life with similar swings and swing speed. If you have over come any ailments, gotten older, been away from the game or most importantly never been fit I think it is an absolute must and will make this most difficult game a little easier. We have to fight the course, the elements, our swings and our moods so not fighting your equipment should just be common sense. *Side notes* He said he successfully fits a lot of golfers into the Taylor Made Ventus shaft, but very few into the Ventus with Velocore as it is just too much shaft for most players. And he is also very excited about the new Titleist drivers and said it is the best driver they have ever produced by a wide margin. We spent so much time with my irons/driver/putter that we never got around to wedges and he told me once I get my irons where I want them, I should book another full wedge fitting as he would like to spend a good hour with me and it was included in my full bag fitting, so no additional charge.

    ... Other than Allen Iverson I will never understand why people pay for AAA Used balls having no idea where they came from when you can buy PRACTICE balls for less than 50% of the new price. For those unfamiliar, they are the same as brand new balls they just have PRACTICE stamped on them. Not second quality, not blemished just PRACTICE. Here is a great deal on some TP5 Pix PRACTICE balls and they also have the TP5 and TP5x in plain white for $19.99 and if you buy 5 dozen the shipping is free: https://www.golfdiscount.com/taylormade-2019-tp5-pix-20-practice-bagged-golf-balls?___store=default&nosto=nosto-page-category2

    Total disaster of a round. 46/46:92. 5 was a magic number: 5 fairways, 5 greens, 5 3 putts, 5 doubles or worse. This was just a round to forget and move on.

    47/46 93. Driver was off its' chops all day leaving me in a bad position a lot. First time out with the D7's and while I didn't hit any in the power holes, they seem to be working well.

    Shot an 88 today in sunny but chilly weather. It was about 60 when my wife and I teed off, however, the wind was blowing 15-20. Driver worked for the most part today, but the greens were challenging since they were just punched and sanded a few days ago. An issue that's surfaced is my short game. My wedges 52*, 56* and 60* have all lost distance. Need to figure what's going on - back to the practice holes next week. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    WOW! Congrats @B.Boston! @daviddvm a well fought competition and it was an honor to support you during all of this! @GB13 @edingc, well played gents. Such a fun few weeks competing and seeing some kick butt reviews. @Headhammer the last two weeks have been very rough as school has started and I haven't had time to so much as even check in on this thread but seeing these babies left on my porch yesterday certainly helped alleviate my stress: Thank you for the sick swag!

    Shot an 80 today. Should have been better, but they just punched the greens and they're heavily sanded. Putting was, to say the least, a challenge for everyone.

    Got out for the first time in a few weeks today, as I’ve been dealing with back pain. Played awful on the front nine (+8), but rebounded on the back and shot +4. Finished with an 82, not too bad considering I haven’t been able to play very often of late!

    Our Wednesday traveling group went to a muni called Thunderbird in Huron, Ohio. We played the north course which is a hilly parkland style with narrow fairways and lots of trees. The greens were just punched and sanded and were extremely slow. Ended up with an 89, mostly due to my putting. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Shot 36 today. One birdie, One bogey, 7 pars. Pretty good. The 4 iron off the tee on a few of these shorter par 4's is deadly. It keeps me out of trouble and im able to still have about 140-150 in. Could have been under par, but putter wasn't cooperating.

    Played the jewel of the LA city golf system - Wilson at Griffith Park. It's a course I have never played well at, but do really enjoy for the look and feel of the place (1927 course, so old school style). Insanely hard to get a day tee time there these days, so when I saw a time open up (at a discount no less!) for 11am today, I had to cut out from work (much easier during these WFH days) and play. A few things happened during this round: -I didn't get a single birdie -I got stung by a wasp -I shot a personal best on the course (+4/+2 - 78 total) There wasn't anything to really write home about, good or bad. Decent off the tee, but the fairways were shaggy and not giving much roll. Approaches weren't horrible, but nothing close enough to kick in. My putting speed was actually really good, but just not dropping, so easy two putts (30 putts total). Made a beautiful bunker shot right after the wasp stung me, guess I was too distracted by the pain to overthink it, but I then missed the easy putt for the save. Weather was beautiful, air relatively clear, pace not as incredibly slow as it can be there. All in all, a pretty good Wednesday.

    Still struggling some with the 3i, but wanted to share a couple things that stood out to me tonight following last night's range session: I've got my hands lower at impact, so contrary to my initial rounds, I've now got a baby draw working (and can still easily call up a fade, which was very difficult for me with my Pings) D7 PW about 5 yards longer on comparable strikes (n=2, soooo...) BUT the peak height is pretty similar D7 6i about 10 yards longer on comparable strikes (n=3...) and the D7 is markedly lower/more piercing. My Ping seems to just float. It's hard to tell without a launch monitor, but I'm starting to wonder if the spin rates are a little lower on the D7 or if it's just the flatter descent angle (or, you know, both). I was playing ProV1x tonight and the Pings were drop-and-stop with mid irons and coming back about a foot or two with short irons. (The greens were so firm tonight that ballmarks were hard to find!) The D7s were definitely running out more. Here's an 8i from 160 (I would have juiced a 7i if playing my Pings). I added in the dotted line to help illustrate, but that's approximately 10' of run-out. Don't love that, but a) it was off a tee and b) there are spinnier balls. And one thing that I'm definitely noticing is the predictability of a well-struck shot. I can already tell by feel exactly where that ball is about to end up and that's not something I would've ever said about my i210s. D7s? KBS shafts? Combo of both? No matter, the dispersion is excellent. Case in point, par 5 9th, I flushed this 6i and just from the feel, I immediately had the thought: that's going to be damn close. Watching the ball track right at the pin, I thought, "that's going in." Well, I was wrong. Sure would've liked an albatross though.

    We gambled today with $29 rates at Rose Hill Plantation just off the island at Hilton Head. We played the back nine first, shooting 43/39:82 for 5,682 yards. Last three holes: #7 Par 5, #8 Par 5 & #9 Par 3. I went par, birdie, par. Very enjoyable round today and the Staff were over the top friendly. BTW, first time playing this course and did not lose a ball!

    So you’ve got an imaginary budget of blind bidding dollars. That’s how the waivers are determined. When you put in a waiver request, you bid blindly how much of your budget you’d spend on the player and the highest bid wins. You’ve got $100 to last the whole season. Same! Maybe it’s nostalgia, but I’m thrilled to have him. I think there’s just multiple strategies to it. As the season goes on, the waiver pool gets thinner with talent. The past few years I’ve made it to the end of the season with plenty of budget left, no one to spend it on, and having missed out on guys along the way. By the playoffs, you’re already boned if you’re relying on the wire to make or break your matchup. I think it lets that happen just to push trades through but it forces your roster to be the correct size before you can submit your lineup. Yeah, of all the platforms I’ve used, this is my least favorite UI but at least it works as intended. I do like some of the fantasy sharks integrations so that’s a nice touch but I....... think..... Fantrax has......themorefriendlysetup. Ugh that was tough to get through. I think I threw up a little in my mouth.

    I only have 2 rounds in with my 17* Callaway Super Hybrid but was very impressed and since end of the season deals may be here I wanted to post a mini review. I would have thought almost all club ideas had been exhausted by now but I think this Super Hybrid is almost a new category of it's own. I found the Super Hybrid to be a cross between a hybrid and a fairway wood. A little larger back to front than a hybrid but smaller front to back than a fairway wood. If you are a sweeper this is a great club to give you the best of both worlds. With a shaft about 3/4 - 1" longer than a hybrid it produces more distance. And about 3/4 - 1" shorter than a fairway wood it can provide more control and accuracy. I was playing with a guy yesterday that was about the same length off the tee and on a par 5 he was about 5 yards in front of me. I hit my 17* SH producing a nice mid-high trajectory and was a little shocked by how far it went. He hit his 5 wood and with a higher trajectory ended up about 10 yards behind me. 15 more yards compared to a 5 wood is a nice thing to have in the bag. Off the tee it is even longer. And it seemed plenty forgiving and I imagine the 20* Super Hybrid would really be ideal for a lot of players. Again I only have 2 rounds in with mine but it doesn't feel like a honeymoon, more an instant addition to my bag. I have 2 holes I play where a 5 wood is a little too long and a hybrid not quite long enough and think my 17* Super Hybrid should work perfectly. At $319 I found it just too expensive for an experiment, but Callaway Certified Used had one Like New for $203 with free shipping and I am glad I took a shot with it. If you haven't hit one, I strongly suggest you give one a demo.

    7am tee time this morning, usually never get out that early, so maybe I came out a bit cold. Scramble-fest on the front, but did alright with a long birdie on 7 really helping (wound up being the only one for the round). Back 9 was generally a lot more steady with 8/9 greens in regulation, but nothing too tight so I wound up with a bunch of two putt pats. Only exception was on 13, a dogleg left perfect for my draw, but I wound up with a pull hook and unlucky bounce off the cart path for my first OB in like a month, leading to an ugly double. 39-38 for a 77 (+5). Currently dropping my handicap below 5, but I’m thinking there should be a PCC adjustment as the blacks and blues were playing essentially the same.

    83 again today. It was mid-40s temp at a 7:30 tee off. 43 on the front which usually means bogey golf or worse on the back. Missed 4 greens with a wedge (3 hit and rolled off), a 4 foot bird on 9. Rallied for a 40 on the back, no doubles, and chip in on the par 3 17th. I wasn't consistent with my plan or swing thought on the front. Still working on it. Take Dead Aim

    ... I love reading these tests as well as seeing the results. 5 Layers has to be pretty tough to get perfect and the TP5 is my favorite ball so I will continue to play them, especially when the negatives are accompanied by " though none were significant enough to be of concern." and "unlikely to cause a notable performance issue." Since I just bought 5 dozen for $99 my True Price is still pretty low.

    @MattF will be upset with me, but I hit some range balls this evening. I know I'm going to be kicked off of team #NoPractice, but my daughter wanted to hit her new driver, and I didn't want to be the typical junior golf dad and just watch her practice. Besides, it's all in the name of the review. I do it for the readers. Don't worry, I didn't hit a ton of balls, probably less than 20. I've done plenty of testing off the toe already, especially the high toe, and I'm convinced that it costs me about 20 yards. But what about the heel? And not just the heel, but the hosel? Purely in the name of science and for the purposes of the review, I subconsciously decided to hit an 8 iron left of the grooves. And as expected, the ball flight was low and nearly perpendicular to my intended target. Just as you would expect. My shank experiment notwithstanding, the range session was pretty good. The feel and sound of these clubs are just brilliant. It's not that my F8s are bad, just that these are so much better. I'm also loving the increased height. The question is - can I live with the dead shot off the high toe, knowing that I'm good for at least one of these per round? Stay tuned.

    Absolutely beautiful day today!! No smoke, sunny with temp at 65º at 7:30 tee time and warmed up to 80º when we finished at 11am. Ball striking still continues to be much better than the last few weeks. Still having trouble getting the ball to the hole on chips and putts on our greens... still slow; beautiful looking but slow. Shot 42 on the front nine, better than the 48 yesterday, and another 39 on the back nine for an 81 that included four (4) 3-putts, but I had NO doubles or worse!!! I'm reading the putts well, just leaving the putt short, dead in the heart. I also need to fly the ball closer to the hole on chips/pitches. I had been playing more bump 'n runs, and they just don't run like I think they should.

    - 43 (+7) - 3/8 FIR - 3/9 GIR (1 birdie) - 16 Putts (7 2-putts, 2 1-putts) First post-#CC4 round, which I had to shorten to nine holes because of an outing. That meant teeing off the back nine, which bought me a little more time because you can track your tee shot into the sunrise. Definitely getting to the end of the season both with light and temperature. I couldn't play yesterday because of frost, and this morning it was somewhere right around 40 degrees. Brr. I didn't swing particularly well, really blocking a lot of stuff right at the moment, but really just killed the round with a triple bogey on No. 11. Short tee shot, blocked 5 iron down the right side into the trees and then trying to get out of the trees I squared up a trunk and sent the ball about 25 yards behind me. Also thinned a 54 wedge on No. 13 after a really nice tee shot to turn a good birdie look and guaranteed par into a bogey, and then slipped on the wet grass on No. 14 which led me to have to lay up twice before reaching the green. Still, I putted the best I have in a while this morning so I'm happy about that. And I'm not striking the ball terribly, just think I'm swaying/sliding just a little and that's causing the blocked shots. Overall everything has way less movement than I had previously, and that's a good thing because trying to play a 10-20 yard slinging hook on every shot is no easy task.

    45/37: 82 (+10, net even), 36 putts, 4/14 FIR, 9/18 GIR Personal best 9 on the back, and personal best GIR! I ended the round with 7 GIR in a row, easily the longest streak of greens in reg I've hit. Had a tough stretch to start, Double, Bogey, Double, Double, but didn't Double again the rest of the round. Honestly could have easily gone lower too; I hit a ton of putts on the perfect line but the greens were so much slower than I'm used to. Dew was still on the greens, and the ball picked up all the water and sprayed it, which I think really slowed them down. 3 3-putts and only 3 1-putts definitely doesn't do it justice. But my approach game was as good as it's ever been, and I was driving it really well on top of it. I came in the back 9 so well I almost just went back out for another 18! And missed a 30ish foot eagle putt by about 2 inches! But I'll never complain about tap in birdies

    Alright they kept their word and got me out of my driveway by 130. I went for my haircut and then off to the range. No afternoon rain for the first time in over a week. It was a beautiful afternoon in fact. 88 degrees, nice sea breeze (off the Gulf so West wind.). I headed for the West range (we have two) thinking I would be downwind. Yuck!!!! We have had a lot of rain. The hitting area was way up front which would leave a significantly downhill lie off of tight wet turf. No thank you!!! So off I went to the back or East range meaning that I was hitting shots into the wind. After stretching I got to it. First few swings with the GW were tentative but then I made a nice pass and off it went, high and just left of target. These babies are surprisingly easy to hit. Remember I’m coming at this from having gamed GI irons for a number of years. I was concerned about less offset - no issue there what so ever. I was concerned about how I’d handle the longer irons. I could not believe how high I was launching the 4 iron - I haven’t hit one of those in at least 5 years. I mean I think I could actually hit it on the course!!! Unfortunately because I was so into the wind my Rapsodo was not helpful today other than letting me know that I was straighter and launching it higher with the D7 forged than the regular D7. It’s also a much cleaner look. There’s no view of the back of the club like there is with the regular D7. Since no one else was on that back range I even tried going to the side and hitting a bunch of 6 irons out of the rough. Overall it was a great day on the range. I hit a couple of drivers, a driver, 5 wood, GW sequence. A bunch of pitches out of the heavy green side rough and a half dozen or so bunker shots. Initial reaction to the turf interaction was extremely positive BTW Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Once a putt is given it is done. Anything that happens after that is irrelevant.

    Well, I’ve gained 10 pounds and working on a degree in Biblical studies... pretty much the same.

    Got it to take some comparison pictures today. Got the D7 Forged 5i, 7i and Gap compared to my previous clubs in those spots. The gap is by far the biggest difference, the CBX2 is just so much bigger. I also have a Sub 70 699 Pro 5i I'll take some pictures of as well. 5i's: The hozel is noticeably shorter than the i500, top line is very similar, overall the D7 Forged appears slightly smaller. 7i's: Again, D7 Forged had a shorter hozel. But other than the obvious color difference the look at address is almost identical. GW: Overall, I really like the look of these. I've never actually gamed a chrome finish iron before. They really look good. What would I change? I don't love what Wilson did with the Font/size/location for the club identifier. A little big, a little loopy and a little far out on the toe. But the look at address is spot on.

    Looking forward to tonight. My daughter’s college football team will be playing on ESPN. Nice to see smaller colleges getting some air time. https://twitter.com/gocamelsfb/status/1306944814840127488?s=21
