Please read this one carefully gang, as it's a BIGGIE!!! And it's more than just a club review - it's a season long experiment in golf improvement.
Welcome to MyGolfSpy's 2nd annual Cobra Connect Challenge - and we're making it bigger and better than ever. We're looking for FIVE of you to spend the rest of the golf season with a full bag - yes, a full bag - of Cobra's KING F8 gear equipped with the ARCCOS-powered Cobra Connect System.
We'll outfit you with a complete set of Cobra F8's, from driver, fairway and hybrids to irons and wedges - all customized to your specs - as well as MyGolfSpy's newly crowned Most Wanted Stand Bag, the Cobra Ultralight. Your job? Spend the season with your Cobra gear and use the Cobra Connect system to analyze your game, focus your practice and see how much you can improve.
Year Long Competition
Our 5 testers will spend the season competing against each other for some great prizes provided by Cobra-Puma, and all you have to do is what you'd do anyway - play golf and work to shoot lower scores.
To start, Cobra will send you a full ARCCOS 360 set for use with your current gamers. You'll spend a month setting a performance baseline, and once you get your new Cobra gear, you'll spend the rest of the year playing, tracking your data and discussing your journey here in the MyGolfSpy Forum and on Social Media.
This is gonna be, as they say, a hoot!
How To Apply:
This review opportunity is open to any golfer in the U.S. or Canada, so in this thread - please tell us the following:
1. Your first name and home state or province
2. Your current set makeup
3. Your current handicap
4. Your goals for the 2018 golf season
Again, the commitment on your part is to game your new Cobra gear for the remainder of the season and share your journey both here in the MyGolfSpy Forum and on Social Media.
Good luck to all, and we'll be announcing our 5 testers right here next week!
Thank you to everyone that applied, this was a very tough challenge to narrow it down to just five. If you weren't selected for this testing, you won't have to wait long. Another great one will be announced in the next couple days!! We keep it rollin on MGS
Congratulations: And follow all their progress on the social media outlets below:
This is the official thread for our first ever MyGolfspy/Cobra Connect Driver Challenge! We have two teams who will spend the next month using their new Cobra F7 drivers equipped with Cobra Connect - an Arccos-driven driver shot tracking and stat-keeping sensor and app.
â€‹The teams will be competing for individual weekly prizes as well as an overall Team prize.
One contestant - the one who truly knocks it out of the park - will win a complete Cobra-PUMA makeover, including new clothes and shoes from PUMA as well as a full bag of custom-fit Cobra equipment.
This should be fun!
And so let's meet our two groups -- Team Rickie and Team Lexi!
So here's how it's going to work - each week our contestants will post their stats from their Cobra Connect app. They'll be scored on the following categories from the app:
1. Driving handicap
2. Fairway accuracy
3. Smart Distance
4. Long drive
5. Overall number of drives detected
In addition, our contestants will be active on Social Media and will be scored accordingly. They'll be using the hashtag #COBRACONNECTMGS
The competition officially starts this Friday. Each Thursday the contestants will post their stats and we'll announce the weekly winner on Friday - the weekly winner will earn some slick PUMA apparel.
Now here's where it gets interesting!!!
Forum members who are not actually competing can win a weekly prize courtesy of Cobra-PUMA as well by participating in the thread - comment, trash talk, questions and general good humor will serve you well.
Each contestant will kick off with a post letting you know a little about them, their game and what they're looking for from their new driver - sorta like the Miss America Pageant but with golfers.
The Cobra Connect Challenge
Featuring Cobra F7 & F7+ Drivers!
Now don't touch the knobs 'cause I think we're going to have some fun with this one...
Everyone likes to test drivers, right? And throw a little competition into the mix? And prizes, including a boffo Grand Prize?
That beats a weekend in Vegas all day, every day and twice on Sundays!
Well we have what might be the Mother of all Competitions with...
The Cobra Connect Challenge!
We're looking for 8 of you to test and keep a custom-built (to your specs!) Cobra F7 or F7+ driver - but that's not the fun part.
The Chosen 8 will take part in a month-and-a-half long competition using the unique Cobra Connect - the unique Arccos-fueled stat tracker built into the grip of every Cobra driver.
You'll be competing in teams and against each other in areas such as Driving Handicap, Smart Distance, Driving Accuracy, Fairways Hit, Longest Drive and Most Improvement.
You'll need have some social media skills, too - as prizes will be awarded based on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook interaction, as well.
Prizes include Cobra-PUMA hats, shirts, shoes and other swag - all leading up to one grand prize -
A full COBRA-PUMA makeover!
That'll include apparel, shoes and a full bag of custom Cobra equipment - we're talking irons, wedges, hybrids and FW's (it won't include driver because, duh, you'll already have one. And it won't include putter, 'cause Cobra doesn't make one!).
HOW TO APPLY:
As we said, this one's a biggie, so PLEASE follow these instructions to the letter.
In this thread, tell us:
Your first name & home state or province
Your current driver/shaft combo
Your driver swing speed and average distance

Your Smart Phone type (iPhone or Android)
We'll announce the testers in this thread early next week. Good luck!!!
