For those of you who have your intros updated, I gave you all a follow on IG and Twitter.

 

Really interested to see that elements Chrome shaft in the F7. I was contemplating getting one of those on the F7 fairway.

Well you know what they say: drive for show, putt for dough. I can't say I'm an expert at either but I'm currently offering lessons on how to properly twirl a club after sticking any approach shot to a couple feet. And I mean ANY approach shot.

 

 

The name don't lie...

Leaving tap ins short since '00

First official round of 9 yesterday evening in my league at Quicksilver Golf Club. Got off the tee box fine with the F7+... Putting was the issue yesterday.

 

Here is a screen s*** of the results from the Cobra Connect app post round.

Obviously I need to fix that slice. Oy. The great thing about Quicksilver is that you can grip and rip and not lose your damn ball.

Call me crazy but I'm worried @Digiburdie is getting too into this competition!

Seen at the course today...attachicon.gifMGSFowler.png #TeamRickie

^ this is awesome..... bwahaha. if only the rest of my body fit into that shirt. i'm not thinking Rickie wears an XL. 

 

I'll try to rep for the lefties... the slice was strong with this one yesterday. hit a couple bombs but couldn't keep it on the fairway and the putting was just.... lets not talk about that. 

 

Couple of housekeeping Arccos/Cobra Connect type notes: 

  • I found that the Android app for the Cobra Connect does NOT have a share feature for the end round stats. The iPhone app does. This will make it harder for those of us with Androids to share our info. Best way is to take a screenshot and share that way. Also the share feature when available only has twitter and facebook.. not instragram. 
  • Also, seems that the iPhone app has trouble recognizing the drive after a par 3. happened after both Par 3's yesterday in my league. Luckily it's an EZ fix but you have to be paying attention to each hole and can't let it go unattended. 
  • So far the iOS app has the better UI (User Interface.. sorry I'm a UX Designer so this is what I think about constantly). I'm surprise they aren't identical UI's but they aren't. Seems they put more time into the iOS app at this point. 
  • Battery life is 100000 times better on the iPhone also. 

I'm hoping to get a full 18 in this weekend to drop some more bombs... weather permitting. 

 

Stay tuned...

Which one of those stats is driving handicap?

Good question. I haven't been able to find that stat yet on the app. Maybe it takes a few rounds to develop it? Or is it something that MGS will put together? not sure.

Was it on the "stats" tab by chance? I noticed the screenshot was taken on the "best" tab.

And awaaaaaay we go .... !

Sorry for the delay ladies and gents; been swamped with a lot of stuff recently.

So happy to finally get this party goin...

 

And in the famous words of Bob Barker: "StrokerAce c'mon down!"

 

A little about me;

I'll be brief; if you're interested in a lot of boring detail click on the links in my sig for the other products I've reviewed...but then again - don't.

 

By day:

I am a data superhero.   :lol:

Data-Superhero.jpg  data_superhero.png

 

I work at Boston University doing data analytic 'stuff'.  Build data warehouses and create tools for business intelligence reporting for analyzing trends, digging deep on students and faculty...blah, blah, blah... you didn't come for this; I'll move on.

 

By non-day (night, early morning, vacation, sick (cough, cough))

I play hoops.  Yeah, I know ... Billy Hoyle and all.  Just can't give it up - been doing it now for almost 40 years.

 

billy_h.jpg

 

I play golf.  3 time champion of our crappy 9 hole league at BU.  Other than that I'm o-k... around a 13 handicap; 

 

hack_golfer2.png

 

 

I'm not a 'long' driver as compared to these guys that hit it a mile.  
I've never driven the ball 300 yards.  Closest I got was around 290.  And that was with a 45" shaft and my eyes closed hitting it right in the sweet spot.

PARDON THE INTERRUPTION.... WE MUST TAKE A TEAM SEXY LEXI BREAK...

lexi_5.jpg

 

SEXY LEXI SEXY LEXI SEXY LEXI SEXY LEXI...SEXY LIKE A FREAKIN COBRA TEAM LEXI IS GOING TO WIN THIS BECAUSE SHE'S HOT AND LOOKS GOOD HOLDING A TROPHY...OUR TROPHY

 

Oh...where was I???

 

Oh yeah... I can't hit the ball a long way.  
I'd like to drive it 300...but that's not my game....I hover around 250 with some going 240 and some going 260... but I try to hit fairways.
I'm resigned to the fact that I won't win the longest drive portion of the contest.

Hopefully I can hang in the fairway pct and social media section.   :D 

 

How do I pay for this?

I gamble... no really.... I've played fantasy football the last few years.

ff_stud.jpg

 

Last year I won about 400 between yahoo/espn/draftkings/fanduel

The year before I won about 600.

IF YOU TELL MY WIFE I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND KILL YOU.  I AM A MARINE AND I KNOW HOW TO DO THESE THINGS.

 

 

What am I looking for?

=======================================

the words every golfer LOVES to hear... "nice ball".

=======================================
I want to hear that off the tee every time I hit this chrome beauty.  Every. Single. Freakin. Time.

Is that asking too much??? C'mon CobraGolf... is it really?

 

Oh - and in case you didn't know - I'm from Boston.  Otherwise known as Championship City.

WE ARE TAKING THIS TITLE BECAUSE I AM FROM BOSTON AND TOM BRADY PLAYS HERE AND HE'S THE BEST DAMN QB THAT EVER STRAPPED ON SHOULDER PADS AND HE'S A KILLER JUST LIKE A COBRA AND TEAM LEXI

I think team Rickie should be required to wear flat brims during all rounds, while team Lexi should have to wear skirts

One thing I've noticed about my F7 is that it is quiet.  And when I say quiet I mean sometimes you're not even sure you've hit the ball quiet.  But then you look up and the thing is rocketing down the fairway.

 

There's been a lot of "loud" drivers lately and this is QUITE the opposite.  It does take some getting used to because of how loud all of my recent drivers have been.

 

Wonder if it's just me.... 

 

Anyhow - planning on getting to the range real soon and I'll do a video so you can hear it for yourself.
