>>>  My dad is 73 and has a membership at the same course as me, so another goal is to make as many great memories as possible, while we still can.

>>>  Make my 8 yr old son fall in love with the game.

Now, some more traditional GOALS:

>>>  Break 80; 25% of the time

>>>  Break 85; 70% of the time
>>>  Break Par (Net Score); 50% of the time

>>>  Putts / Hole

>>>  3 Putts / Round

>>>  GIR 40% (up from 35.8% in 2016)

>>>  FIR 60% (up from 59.3% in 2016)

>>>  With those goals achieved, watch my Handicap Index Drop to possibly an 8.0

Longtime lurker and had serious FOMO after not entering in this last year, so I'll finally bite and make an account. Here's my humble entry: 


Me: Kyle, an early 30-something LEFTY from Michigan where spring has been brutally slow to arrive this year. 


Current Set: 

Driver: Cobra Amp Cell 10.5 w/ Stiff Fuel Shaft

3W: Taylormade 07 Burner  

4Hy: Taylormade 09 Burner 22°

5-AW: Callaway X-22 w/ Stiff Graphite Shafts

Wedges: Callaway MD2 56° (bent to 55°) and 60°

Putter: Nike Method B2-01

Ball: K-Sig


I was recently went through an iron fitting process and plan to make a purchase decision on those and a hybrid/fairway wood upgrade by mid-spring.  


Handicap: 10 - Thanks to a slight job change in early 2017, I played more than I ever did in the past (70-ish total rounds). Started the year as a 16, got down to 10 by the end of the season. TBD as to what effect the long winter will have on that number but I'm hopeful 1-2 trips to the range a week kept most of the rust away.


Goals: Last year, my goal was to get to single digits. While I was close, it didn't quite happen. This year I'm aiming to: 1. Play even more than last year. 2. Increase my GIR and FIR stats, both of which are my biggest weaknesses that force me to rely on a stronger short-game) and 3. get to a 8 or lower handicap. Once I've hit 8 my plan is to finally enter my first ever actual competition through a local club or organization. Editing to add one last goal: Kick some butt during my annual buddies trip in northern Michigan. Photos I took last year for anyone interested.

4. My goal is to win our club championship and as many tournaments as possible. My kids are older now and I have more time to play. I am in two 18 hole leagues during the week and plan on playing alot on the weekends. I absolutely smoke my Driver and 3 wood, I had never purchased a Cobra product before buying these 2 years ago. The end of last year I finally had gotten fitted for irons and were debating the Cobras before buying the Callaways. I have an Optishot in my garage and would love another tool to help me analyze my game on the real course.

(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:


This review opportunity is open to any golfer in the U.S. or Canada, so 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!
