Overall, this challenge has been amazing. Huge shoutout to MGS and Cobra for putting this on, from the gorgeous clubs to the well thought out challenges it was fun every week to see what the competitors would bring. @B.Boston, @daviddvm, @edingc, @GB13, @Headhammer...ya done good! Reviews were insightful and well written, memes were well used, and you all did a great job of including the forum members in the process. Huge shoutout to @daviddvm for highlighting the one length clubs all year, I have a buddy who plays these and swears by them for those who can't put the time into golf that it takes to hammer down a swing with 14 different length clubs.
I would say my favorite part of the challenge was definitely breaking 80 for the first time during the woods and wedges competition. It was a lot of fun to play the different types of challenges, and I will be incorporating some of them into practice rounds for the high school kids this year to keep things fresh and help them learn course management in different scenarios. I'm bummed I was unable to partake in the 14 club challenge, but will definitely be roping that one in somewhere soon. Every week that involved getting forum members out on the course and connecting through golf was a definite win for me.
As far as suggestions go, I think it would be a ton of fun to have a week where members get to call out one of the participants and remove X number of clubs from their bag for that week. For example, if someone posted their Arccos data and it was clear their driving handicap was low, you could call them out and take away their driver. Or look at their usage data and take away the club(s) they tend to use for the most shots. This would provide different options off the tee/around the green throughout the round to give more insight to the review, but also would be a lot of fun for the forum members. Perhaps if I want to remove more than 1 club, I need to subtract a point from my handicap for head to head comparison? Just a thought.
Thanks for a fun 8 weeks!
