4. Your goals for the 2018 golf season

My goal is to play in 10 tournaments this year and play 100 total rounds. Last year I played 85 rounds and 2 tournaments. I use Game golf for tracking but would love to switch to arccos if I was given a whole set. I tried to buy integrated grips from cobra for the rest of my clubs but they wouldn't sell them to me . I switched to cobra woods last year and LOVE them. I'm in the process of saving up for new cobra irons so this opportunity would be epic.

4) Goals for 2018, first goal is to get my handicap down to 17. Second, is to break 80. Started really playing late last summer and broke 100 in December before the first snowstorm, so I'm heading into 2018 focused and ready to improve, already have taken one lesson and signed up for more. I love Cobra (as you can see by my driver, wood, and hybrid) and would love to document my journey from a relatively new golfer, to hopefully going below a 17 handicap. I drive by a range on the way home every night from work, so once the snow melts up here I will be stopping in once or twice a week. I am fully committed to becoming a better golfer in 2018.

Doug Zack Michigan ( Suburban Detroit Area)


Driver - Adams Blue Stiff

Wilson Staff FG Tour V4 - 2 and 4 Iron

Wilson Staff V2 5-9 iron ( +1 length , +2 upright )

Scratch Wedges - Sweeper Slider - 47, 50, 53, 56 degree

Ping Eye Two Berylium Lob Wedge - 60 degree

Scotty Cameron Newport Putter - Custom Batman grip weights and head.


15.8 index


My Goal:


After a few summers of very poor health, I am determined to get back to single digit status.  I intend to play my usual weekend games, hopefully walking for the exercise, and walk 9 holes another two times a week, I also want to get back to my favorite routine of hitting balls at least twice a week and working on my short game.

I had considered joining the Golf Channel AmTour to help create competition and incentive, but would gladly be involved in Cobra sponsored competitions and willing to travel if necessary.


I am determined to get healthy through golf and return to get back to 7 index.

My mind is still a 7, now I just need to get my body there again.


Thank You for the opportunity

Currently a 20 Handicap lefty but shooting under 90 so far this spring. 


I hadn't started playing golf consistently until two years ago. My goal for year-end 2018 is to be shooting in the low 80s consistently. I have a workout plan and lesson plan that began in February and is set through the fall. Primarily, my issue is getting off the tee. 


My current set has been hacked together over the years and WAS NOT fitted for anything. At 6-3, this is a real issue and I think testing a Cobra set that's fit to me would be really interesting to see what proper clubs can do for your game. 


Driver: Taylormade R15 Driver (Stiff, 10.5 degree, set to draw setting)

Fairway Woods: Taylormade R11s (Stiff, 3-wood & 5-wood)

Irons: Taylormade M2 Irons (Stiff, 2016, 4-AW)

Wedges: Titleist SM5 Wedges (54 & 58)

Big believer in analytics- take lessons weekly w Trackman, etc. Looking to improve overall consistency of shot shape, reduce misses or make more predictable, and scrambling.  Will play in local tournaments as well as club events.  Want the handicap to "travel" more effectively while getting lower...

  • Driver: Taylormade R1 black 10.5deg with 70g Stiff bimatrix shaft
  • 3 wood: Taylormade R11s with 70g rogue phenom stiff shaft

3. Your current handicap: 15.6


4. Your goals for the 2018 golf season: Play more golf! Ideally to hit more greens. My driving has been very good as of lately. The dispersion with my irons has not been very good. Gaining a better understanding of my exact full swing iron distances. Increasing my GIR will substantially decrease my scoring average to fulfill my end-of-year goal to hit a 10 HDCP.

3.) Not 100% sure. Only time I have kept track of my scores well enough is at my indoor league over the winter and those scores aren't real. Usually shoot in the 90s on a 72 par 125 slope course.


4.) Keep getting stronger off the tee. Make peace with my long irons. Tighten up my chipping. Putt better.
