The Cobra F9 driver, may be the driver to shut down all competition for the spot in my bag. With how I hit the ball, the flight it produces, and the increased success rate for putting the ball in a good position for me off the tee, I don't want to even look at other drivers. Ever.
When I went for my fitting, I told the fitter that I wanted to stand over the ball and feel confident that I knew where the ball was going to end up most of the time. We went through a few shafts and ended up with a shorter shaft (44.75") to provide greater control. That has been a huge win. Most of the time, I stand over the ball and feel that I know where it will go.
According to the statistics, I am slowly eliminating my two way miss which makes me happy to see. Unfortunately, the miss right has been way offline and puts me into big trouble. My misses to the left now are not as far offline as previous drivers I have used. I am for the most part still in play with my left miss, which allows me an opportunity to score better.
My distance has also improved using the F9 as my average is now 253yds.
The more I use this club and practice, the more I fall in love with it. I used to dread needing to pull driver out of my bag because it was a guessing game as to what was going to happen. Now, I am disappointed when I can't use driver off the tee due to course setup.
Now for my FIR stats for this week. Not every shot off the tee was with a driver. Some shots I took with the competition in mind, and others, I made decisions based on course set up.
June 15: 4/14
June 17: 4/7
June 22: 8/14
June 23: 0/8 (12 hole round cut short due to darkness)
As the competition progresses, I look forward to perfecting the driver and continuing to hit my goal of making it a weapon.
