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!

1- Keylan, Alberta Canada

2- Ping G Driver (aldila tour blue 75 xstiff)

Cobra F6 Baffler 4 wood (Altima tour green 75

stiff)

Ping G Crossover #5 (Alta 55 stiff)

Ping S55 4-9 iron (CFS stiff)

Mizuno T7 Wedges Blue = 46,50,54,58

(all DG wedge stiff)

3- Current Handicap of 7.6

4- My goal for 2018 is consistency. Getting to the point when I know a yardage it's not second guessing what club I'm going to pull. Getting to the point where with practice the game gets more precise and by that I can get my handicap back closer to that scratch position. Lower score and funner rounds come fro. consistency.

I have been wanting to try out and possible play the f8 driver and woods. I used a f7 wood with baffler tech and it was awesome. I plan on starting a golf youtube channel similar to rick shiels or Peter Finch. Good luck to everyone!

Hey all!

 

First name is Heath and I live in California

 

Driver:                 Cobra F7

Fairway Woods:  Cobra F7's (3W,5W, 4H)

Irons:                   TaylorMade M4's

Handicap is pretty high at +28

 

 

 

Goals:

 

As a newer player I seem to drive the ball well off the tee, but have issues with my short game. Given that:

 

1. Drive constantly

    a. Less slice

    b. Adjustments for longer distance

2. Hit the irons with confidence

    a. Lessen the number of mis-hits

    b. More consistent distance with each iron.

3. Wedge Work

    a. No chunking or blading the ball

    b. Have more control over the better shots

4. Putting

    a. Reading the greens better 

    b. Develop a more consistent stroke

    c. STOP COMING UP SHORT OF THE CUP.

5. Lowering the Handicap!!!!!

Handicap 20.3

 

My goal this year is to get backdown to my 2016 handicap of 14.3 or better. Age and some surgery has taken a toll on my game but health is back , I am training for golf and recently retire so plenty of time to practice. We need the snow in the northeast to melt to do that.

1. Your first name and home state or province

2. Your current set makeup

I currently have the whole kitchen sink but in need of an update.

Driver: 2015 Callaway Big Bertha (stiff)

Woods: TaylorMade RAC

Irons: TaylorMade RAC (stiff)

Wedges: Cleveland

Putter: TaylorMade Ghost

 

3. Your current handicap

14

 

4. Your goals for the 2018 golf season

My first goal is to simply enjoy the process at improving at this beautiful game. Since ending my baseball career a few years ago my game has been steadily improving; so much so that last year I shot my first even par round (71). This leads me to my secondary goal of breaking par. Also, I'd love to get my handicap under 10. Lastly, and more of a secondary goal, I'd love to get my first hole in one.
