  1. The only thing I found surprising about this test, is that a brush tee wasn't included. I've been using the extra tall yellow brush tees for years now, and while I don't know whether the performance is better or worse than any other tee, those brush tees always set up at the same height, are unbreakable and extremely hard to lose.

  4. The Cobra King extreme is definitely a driver I've been looking at, as an older golfer with a mid handicap, I don't see a lot of difference in distance between most drivers. I mainly need something that's going to stay in the fairway, and this club seems to fit the bill. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  5. Playing video golf games and watching Tiger on TV got me interested in golf. My brother and I picked up a couple cheap golf clubs and started hitting balls at the range, and then eventually picked up some yard sale clubs and started playing the game on our own.

  6. Nothing now, but it used to be hops and barley. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  7. I started playing golf when I was 35, so I've been playing for about 23 years, although I missed a couple of years due to a bad back and spinal fusion surgery. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  8. This is a pretty simple recipe. Take some boneless skinless chicken breast, place in a sturdy ziplock bag and pound it out a little. Then sprinkle and rub in some (Chef Meritos) chicken seasoning, give it about an hour before adding your favorite Italian dressing (Wish-Bone Robusto) let it marinade for about 2 hours. Throw it on the grill and enjoy with your choice of side dishes. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  9. I got a like new demo set of Cobra F7 irons GW-5 for $150.00 off eBay, it appeared that only a couple of the clubs had ever been hit, and then like an idiot spent $75.00 for a matching 4 iron that I rarely use. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  10. In 1963 my local golf course the Hesperia golf and country club in Hesperia California, which was a PGA tour stop from 1957 through 1963, hosted Shell's wonderful world of Golf challenge matches, players featured were Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Billy Casper, Gary player, Al geiberger and Gene littler. I saw this on the Golf channel at least 10 years ago, and would love to see it again. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  11. Great photos, reminds me of pictures of my father when he was young, before Americans were are all fat and lazy, myself included. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  12. Great setup, it's usually to windy where I live to use an umbrella, but the seat and In-N-Out head cover would be nice. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  13. Maybe there's problem with the F9s or maybe you're just hitting the ball extremely thin compared to most people, I don't own F9 or F8 clubs, but I do own the F6 hybrid, fairways and driver which also have a pretty sharp edge around the speed channel and I've had no problems with cutting whatsoever.

  14. It's nice to see somebody doing a review of this push cart, I bought the earlier version of the caddytek EZ fold a few years ago for $115, it's basically the same cart, but uses a bungee cord to secure the top of the bag and there's no cell phone holder, after three years of steady use I've had no problems whatsoever, and it's half the price of a clicgear push cart and comes with a lot of accessories you have to pay extra for on the clicgear, a handbrake would be nice, but I rarely use the brake anyway, so, not a big deal.

  15. I agree 100%, I bought a GPS unit about a year ago and it's been great for determining my yardages to the green from the fairways or the trees, but it totally burst my bubble as to how far I actually hit the ball off the tee on the long par 4s and 5s. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  16. I've been on the receiving end of that cactus, call off the search, play on and buy a new club later. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  17. That is a pretty strange reaction, I've played with a few people, my brother included, who have flown into a rage after a bad shot and destroyed clubs they were actually using at the time, I guess this is a better option. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  18. I'm not sure if I've ever played my best rounds alone, because I end up getting bored and hit multiple balls just to kill time while I'm waiting, but, I will say hitting a great individual shot with no witnesses or someone to high-five is a little depressing.

  19. My bag is almost all Cobra, except for a couple of older Titleist wedges and a Tommy armour putter, Cobra make some good equipment at a little bit lower price than the Big guys, and the prices usually drop quite a bit more on their slightly used or year old models compared to similar clubs from TaylorMade or Callaway.

  20. Welcome to the club, I'm 56 years old and realized a few years back that I needed to move up to the white tee box, my local golf course gave me a false sense of how far I actually hit the ball due to firm fairways that let the ball run, but, after playing a course we're carrying the ball a long distance was necessary for a good approach shot, I realized just how short I actually drive the ball. Old age and reality suck! Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  21. I try to keep my clubs clean and in good condition, and I use head covers on all of them, but I do have a somewhat older 54-degree vokey wedge that I use as my designated dirt and gravel basher. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  22. Sorry, didn't mean to repeat the same insult. Why is there no delete option? Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

  24. I'm going to go with the extra 25 yards, I play golf with my brother and usually beat him by at least few strokes, but lately he's been out driving me by about 10 or 15 yards, and that's just not right! Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  25. Great to hear that it holds its own against other driving irons, since I haven't had a chance to hit any others, I've only compared it against my F6 hybrid and F7 4 iron. Those are some really impressive numbers you're getting. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
