2.) Commit to practice more and focus on lowering my handicap to a 5 or less

3.) Get a putter fitting for the first time ever

4.) Work on my worst golf habit which is I tend to get fast in transition and come over the top slightly

5.) Participate in more club events - win my club invitational for the first time

Again, kudos to MGS for another great event !!! You are the best forum going and hopefully I will get chosen to participate in this season long evaluation.

4. Eliminate the right rough off the tee (aka as a lefty, I want to develop a power fade to use off the tee each and every time), improve course management on par 4s and increase GIRs on par 3s. Oh and get that stupid putter to work.  


You want commitment?!? Just ask my boss how my browser history looks with all these MGS forum links. Just ask my wife how much I spend on social media (instagram and twitter) and the golf course. Oh and one of the longest relationships I've had in life is...golf.

WOW!! Cobra & MGS stepping up BIG for this one!!


As the champion of the first MGS Cobra Connect Challenge I am really excited to see this brought back even bigger and better than the original, it was a ton of fun for all of the participants and the forum really got behind it.


I will say it was a lot of work to be involved in the first challenge it it only lasted 6 weeks, with this one lasting the entire season, make sure that you have the time to do it right! Cobra and MGS are giving you a big investment...think about it...a full Arccos 360 set to start, then a full set of clubs and a bag a month later, they are investing several thousand dollars in 5 MGS members! They deserve your very best, let's make sure they get it!


Good luck to everyone.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.
