My goal for 2018 is to play bogey golf around 86-88. Early last year I was shooting around 101 to 102 for a few weeks believing I would break 100 for the first time. We'll I made a few swing adjustments and I was shooting around 123 to 125 back to back weekends. Everything was bad, so my wife made me take golf lesson for the first time. After the first lesson I was shooting in the high 90's, that was awesome! Since that first golf lesson I've been shooting either high 90's or low 90's and almost broke 90 twice.

(5) Testers Wanted:

Cobra Connect Challenge II



The Full Bag Edition


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:


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!
