  1. Excellent! It could be the "Covid Lockdown Golf Withdrawal" talking here but definitely inching closer to upgrading to the F9 or SZ when we're free again!
  2. Thanks Scott, no harm, maybe the next comp will make it's way across the Atlantic to us
  3. Thanks Scott, are these only open to US residents?
  4. Ok I'm down with that explanation Dave, let me modify my modification. Change to: "Drop from between your waist and your knee" an area that wouldn't have a massive difference in roll when the ball lands I would think. That way, when I carve one OB from the middle of a perfectly flat fairway and I'm taking a drop that isn't going to roll one inch, I would only have to deal with the shame of having hit a poor shot and not the added shame of having looked like I just served a martini to Heff (Lord rest his gentle soul).
  5. Having to take a drop from knee height. Change it to: ''Drop no lower than your knee'' so if you want to drop it from waist height you can. The sight of seeing grown men do a ''bunny dip'' every time they have to drop a ball is just ridiculous... some things can never be unseen!!
  6. This is why I love MGS, I get an education on Donald Rumsfeld Points (what I call the things I don't know that I don't know) and I'm happy to get them so, genuinely, thanks both for the advice. I will definitely try out the SZ for myself and with a bit of luck it will be in the bag for when the Covid lockdown lifts!
  7. I just mean that from those numbers above the Cobra SZ doesn't appear to have picked up any distance on the 2017 model compared to TM. I love Cobra and I am on my 4th driver of theirs down through the years and will continue to support them... but I would've liked to see an improvement in the numbers vs 2017 model.
  8. Has the Cobra stalled mid air? I love Cobra drivers and really considering changing my old Bio Cell to F9 or SZ but those figures don't give me the confidence boost I was hoping for!
  9. One more to add to your DTC list... Seed Golf! They're an Irish company and the quality is superb and comparable to ProV / TM TP5 etc. (yes, I'm biased because I'm Irish )
  10. I'll second that question on the F9 driver! Was thinking of upgrading to F9 or SZ before the lockdown kicked in so would be interested to hear how you're finding it? What did you have before the F9 and did you see an improvement in distance/accuracy when you made the change?
  11. I live in Ireland and we're not on the World Handicap System until November of this year so considering posting these scores wasn't an issue here. We had about 2 weeks of play with raised cups before the Covid lockdown when all courses shut in Ireland. While I enjoyed being able to just get out and play and the novelty of putting to raised cup, I really don't think these rounds should count in anyway towards anyones handicap. I am a 7 h/c and am always happy if I play even within a couple of shots of that but the 3 rounds I had with the raised cups I shot +1, +4 and +7 gross... and I'm not that consistent! Yes, some of my putts hit plum in the middle of the raised cup, but who's to say if the pace was ok for them to drop on a normal day. Also a couple of putts that "grazed" the edge of the cup and counted as in but I doubt they would be in regular golf. Anyway, irrespective of handicaps, I'd give my right arm and probably half of my left leg just to get to go out and play with any type of cups at the moment so hopefully things get back to "normal" soon.
  12. I switched to an oversize putter grip for a couple of years. It was massive and had some reasonable success but ended up going back to a Winn Excel Medalist Midsize grip in 2019 and haven't looked back since!
  13. An old-ish set by todays standards but here goes: Diver: Cobra Bio Cell (set to 10.5 deg), Project X, Stiff. 3w: Cobra Baffler Rail F 15.5deg - Fujikura Motore 60g Stiff Rescue: 3/H Cobra Baffler Rail H 19 deg - Fujikura Motore 65g Stiff 4i - 9i: Taylor Made Tour Preferred CB - Project X 95 6.0 Wedges: 48deg - Titleist (not sure what S it is, it's so old!!) 52deg - Taylor Made Tour Preferred 54deg - Titleist SM6 (F grind) 60deg - Titleist SM6 (K grind) Putter: Odyssey White Ice - 2ball Happy with them all and any bad days on the course are down to me, not the bats! Considering upgrading driver to Cobra F9 or SZ that would probably get me a few more yards off the tee... or put me further into the trees!!

  15. I use mine about 5 times a round on 2 par 5s and a few longer par 4's. If I drive poorly on a given day I probably use it a few more times because I'm further back on more par 4's. Went through a spell of a few years when I never used it but use brings confidence and confidence brings more use!
  16. Hey everyone, Looking for anything and everything to do with golf while on C19 - Lockdown!!!! Playing since I was a kid, took about a 15 year break and now making up for those lost years by playing as often as I can!! H/C currently 7.4. Love everything about golf, the competition, the social aspect, the activity, fresh air, sunshine, rain, finding a pristine ProV1 in the bushes, dunking a brand new ProV1 in the water, making birdie putts, missing double bogey putts, snap hooking and power fading, absolutely everything! Twitter brought me to MyGolfSpy, searching for anything to do with golf! From west coast of Ireland and home club is the mighty Galway GC. Best thing is the Wild Atlantic Way and the quality of courses. No worst thing about golf, ever! My username is based on a friend of ours nickname and how he used to hit a tree on most holes in our old home course. We used to say, "How far is it from Jocerators Tree?" so I'm paying homage to him and the craic we have playing golf.
