  • My name is Vincent, from Denver, CO. 
  • My bag consists of the following:

    • Driver: Taylormade Aeroburner 
    • 3 Wood: Callaway XR 
    • 3 Hybrid: Callaway XR 
    • Irons 4-PW: Taylormade Speedbladez 
    • Wedges: Callaway X Series 56 Degree, Callaway Mack Daddy 2 50 Degree
    • Putter: Nike Ignite 004 

  • Current Handicap: 13
  • My goals for the 2018 Season are to consistently score under 90, with my best round finally (hopefully) cracking 80. As with any golfer that is at a 13 handicap, continuously focusing on consistency and improving putting would work wonders. I could also probably knock off a few strokes by not allowing the little voice in my head to convince me to "Go for it". I believe that the opportunity to use a set specifically fit for me, while gathering data on my game, will help me improve my game drastically and achieve my 2018 goals with a bit of hard work. 

Thank you to Cobra and to Golf Spy for the consideration!

3. Handicap- 9


4. Goals- My number 1 goal is to focus on enjoying the game and not let a poor score change my mood. To help accomplish this I am working on eliminating the cupping of my lead wrist and to lock out my lead leg. Both of these things should help me become more consistent and shoot lower scores. My second goal is to make the cut and play in the second weekend of my city's amateur golf tournament in August.


I am a school teacher that recently moved to a new home in a golf community. My summer off will allow me to put in the work required for the Cobra Connect Challenge II and my teaching experience will help me in writing detailed reviews and discussions. Living in the golf community is going to allow me more range and playing time to focus on this challenge. I am confident that you will not be disappointed if I am chosen as one of the 5 to receive this fantastic opportunity.

      I fairly new to interacting in the forums and I'm obviously not as connected in the industry as many of you are but I figured why not post this here and see what everyone thinks. Now this may have been previously mentioned (If so apologize for the double post) but I was getting some question answered by someone at Arccos and they mentioned that they have a new sensor set coming that would essentially open up the availability of Cobra Connect to everyone and not just Cobra users. The set would presumably replace the 14 screw sensors with 13 grips with specialized sensors (likely the same one used by Cobra) and 1 putter screw. Wish I had more solid evidence than just a conversation to share with everyone but its still a really cool possibility that I hope becomes a reality. 
    • By GolfSpy Barbajo

      This is the official thread for our first ever MyGolfspy/Cobra Connect Driver Challenge!  We have two teams who will spend the next month using their new Cobra F7 drivers equipped with Cobra Connect - an Arccos-driven driver shot tracking and stat-keeping sensor and app. 
      ​The teams will be competing for individual weekly prizes as well as an overall Team prize.
      One contestant - the one who truly knocks it out of the park - will win a complete Cobra-PUMA makeover, including new clothes and shoes from PUMA as well as a full bag of custom-fit Cobra equipment. 
      This should be fun!
      And so let's meet our two groups -- Team Rickie and Team Lexi!
      Team Rickie:
      Team Lexi:
      So here's how it's going to work - each week our contestants will post their stats from their Cobra Connect app. They'll be scored on the following categories from the app:
      1. Driving handicap
      2. Fairway accuracy
      3. Smart Distance
      4. Long drive
      5. Overall number of drives detected
      In addition, our contestants will be active on Social Media and will be scored accordingly. They'll be using the hashtag #COBRACONNECTMGS
      The competition officially starts this Friday. Each Thursday the contestants will post their stats and we'll announce the weekly winner on Friday - the weekly winner will earn some slick  PUMA apparel.
      Now here's where it gets interesting!!!
      Forum members who are not actually competing can win a weekly prize  courtesy of Cobra-PUMA as well by participating in the thread - comment, trash talk, questions and general good humor will serve you well.  
      Each contestant will kick off with a post letting you know a little about them, their game and what they're looking for from their new driver - sorta like the Miss America Pageant but with golfers.
      Let's get this party started!!!!

      The Cobra Connect Challenge
      Cobra F7 & F7+ Drivers!
      Now don't touch the knobs 'cause I think we're going to have some fun with this one...
      Everyone likes to test drivers, right? And throw a little competition into the mix? And prizes, including a boffo Grand Prize?
      That beats a weekend in Vegas all day, every day and twice on Sundays!
      Well we have what might be the Mother of all Competitions with...
      The Cobra Connect Challenge!

      We're looking for 8 of you to test and keep a custom-built (to your specs!) Cobra F7 or F7+ driver - but that's not the fun part.
      The Chosen 8 will take part in a month-and-a-half long competition using the unique Cobra Connect - the unique Arccos-fueled stat tracker built into the grip of every Cobra driver. 

      You'll be competing in teams and against each other in areas such as Driving Handicap, Smart Distance, Driving Accuracy, Fairways Hit, Longest Drive and Most Improvement. 
      You'll need have some social media skills, too - as prizes will be awarded based on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook interaction, as well.  
      Prizes include Cobra-PUMA hats, shirts, shoes and other swag - all leading up to one grand prize -
      A full COBRA-PUMA makeover!  
      That'll include apparel, shoes and a full bag of custom Cobra equipment - we're talking irons, wedges, hybrids and FW's (it won't include driver because, duh, you'll already have one. And it won't include putter, 'cause Cobra doesn't make one!).

      As we said, this one's a biggie, so PLEASE follow these instructions to the letter. 
      In this thread, tell us:
      Your first name & home state or province
      Your current driver/shaft combo
      Your driver swing speed and average distance
      Your Twitter/Facebook/Instagram names
      Your Smart Phone type (iPhone or Android)

      We'll announce the testers in this thread early next week. Good luck!!!
