COBRA CONNECT 5

 

 

Cobra Connect 5 Challenge partnered with Arccos, all participants receive a 13 club Cobra bag and will take part in various challenges.  To broaden the reach of the line, the competition will consist of four Radspeed sets of clubs as well as  two King Tour MIM sets! The full bag includes a players choice of:

  • Driver
  • Hybrids/FW
  • Irons-either Radspeed or King Tour MIM (must choose one on your entry)
  • Wedges
  • Cobra Ultralite Stand Bag

This years event will be a team format, with 3 players on each team.  There be weekly or bi weekly challenges for teams and/or individual challenges.  

Prizes will be awarded for each challenge and for the overall winners. 

Team Captains

We also have a fun addition in adding team Captains, but not just any Team Captains.

Team Chad-Chad DeHart - Manager, Product & Innovation @ Cobra Golf

Team Yags-Mike Yagley - VP, Innovation/AI @ Cobra Golf

Both Chad and Yags will be following the competition closely, and may or may not have a side bet or two between them on the results.   

And don't be surprised if depending on circumstances and availability, the Captains may jump in with their respective teams one week for the competition.

I would read the FAQ page about the site. Lots of good info but here is the link for testing and how testers are selected 

 

Thanks, lots of info to absorb.

Lots of stuff. Enjoy the threads and just navigate the site. You’ll find threads you really enjoy and follow along. “How’d you play” is always a good one to talk about your rounds!

Thanks for the opportunity! Just before the pandemic I returned to the game again after roughly 10 years away, during which the majority of my free time was dedicated to rock climbing. Still climbing, though I’m stoked for everything golf and have managed to get to a single digit index while practicing or playing 3-5 times per week. I’d love the chance to test the Cobra gear as the Speedzone driver was brilliant and I’m fascinated by the one-length concept, which would no doubt help fix my inconsistent long irons. 

 

Best of luck to everyone involved.

Every minute that goes by without selections being announced, is another minute I’m officially still in the running...

Frankly I think all three or any one of you - sluggo, blackgold_blood would be great choices.  I'm anxious to see who this year's group will be.  Good luck everyone and thanks to Cobra and MGS for putting this shindig on every year!

Thank you, I am just like all of the fellow applicants very hopeful, I know the odds of getting picked with so many great candidates, but in the end of the day, whether I am one of the competitors or not, I am absolutely thrilled about Cobra and MGS once again holding this competition and kicking it up a notch.

Thanks Rev!  I actually don’t have any real reservations about being one of the two chosen for the MIM’s. Just having some fun with it and trying to keep things going. I’m 10000% sure whoever is selected will do MGS and Cobra proud!

The meme we've all been waiting for is here:

If I had to guess, it's gonna be another week.  Hats off to those who have to choose.  Hopefully there's some code doing a little auto screening to wittle it down a bit.

Hey man, I really appreciate that. Tempting, but I think I’ll have to pass.

Will they announce here or on a special section on the main webpage?

I don't envy the task with over 4K applicants.  Still we need to add "a drumroll please!"

Good question, normally it would be here in the thread and title would change to testers announced for whichever testing. They may even put a highlight on the main forum page to view, similar to the drop down that was on the site for other bigger events. Either it will be noticeable for all!

Personally it feels more like I’m in the storm now and I’m waiting for the clouds to part and that beautiful sun to hit my face like a new set of cobra clubs just waiting for me to test.

Any applicants currently playing full face grooves in their wedges? I honestly have never seen one in person

I’m assuming we’re in different time zones, because my initial reaction was “damn it is 10:00 am on a Monday that is some intense day drinking dedication” hahaha.

I want to say the hi-toe has them. And the PM grind from Callaway. I don’t game them right now, intriguing though.

That's how I feel too. I'm thinking I don't have the best shot since I am just now starting to get active on the forum but I hope that I still have a shot. I've got the fever and the only perscription is more Cobra!
