I want to be able to keep the ball in the fairway off the tee and be consistent by shooting in the low 80s every round I play.

Safest place on a course is on the green!

Hopefully I didn't miss the entry deadline! I have been on the market for a new means to track my swing data since losing my zepp 2.0 a few weeks ago. An arcos system on a set clubs by my favorite gear designer, Cobra, would be amazing.



Blake Lagarde playing from New Orleans, LA.


After never having played a single hole of golf in my life 14 months ago, I am now proudly rocking a 13 handicap... playing at least 3 days a week. My goal for 2018 has been to drop the handicap below 10 by beginning to focus more on objective data, provided by tools like the arcos system. I would love to share this experience with fellow forum members.


My weapons:

Callaway epic driver--9.5 with draw bias. Project X hzardus T800 55 reg flex--light flex would be more ideal with my swing speed.

2-3 (adjustable) Cobra F7 hybrid.

4, 5, and 6 Cobra baffler hybrids. all hybrids standard flex

6-9 + LW, GW, SW, & PW Taylormade rsi 1

I am from Quebec ,Canada.

My current set up is

Taylormade Driver Burner with light 49 grams Fujikura shaft.

My 3 wood is a Callaway Ft Fusion with also a Fujikura Fit On160 graphite shaft

#2 and #3 irons are Callaway Fusion with light weight graphite shaft

My irons are Old Burner 5 to Pw fitted with steel light weight TT Lite green tag.

My 2 wedges are from Wilson called Harmonized 56 and 60 degrees and I do magics with them.

And a Mc Gregor Low Twist milled face putter 34 inches

All my clubs have oversize grips 5 L new Decade.

This dream set up would certainly beat mines.


I Am a 14 hdcp


And I will be on the course 4 to 5 days a week this very summer .

I'm am a dedicated golfer who love this wonderful sports.


I was struggling with my putter and my #3 Callaway fairway wood..

I would like to overcome this aspect of my game.

Thank you

I'm not sure about my handicap. By doing my average score on some courses I've played I'm guessing its around 15-20.


My goal is to become a more consistent golfer and not to chunk so many shots. Also to fix my horrendous slice. I'm planning on getting a new Odyssey putter in a few weeks.

1. Tony, from the land of COS also known as Colorado Springs. You can figure out what state that's in, right? :)


2. WITB? Ah, ok. My father-in-laws set of 3-PW of Wood Brothers irons. Probably made in the mid 90's. Good news is they are like new. A borrowed TM R5 driver and borrowed 3 & 5 woods. An old Cleveland 58* wedge, borrowed. A titleist ‘Dead Center' putter, again, borrowed. Sensing a pattern here?


3. Handicap? We don't need no stinking handicap! See below for further explanation. Although I shot 90 a couple of weeks ago. Should I figure out how to hit this #$*@&$ driver, that would have cut a half dozen strokes. Remove a few 3 putts and I'm close to my goals for 2018.


4. Your goals for the 2018 golf season - here we go. The last time I played on a regular basis was ‘94. Family was determined to be of more importance than golf, so the clubs were put away.


In 2016 I went to Top Golf and caught that bug again. Played a few times in late summer and fall. Sucked but had a blast.


Last year my obsession kicked into gear. Watching YouTube for instruction, started reading here on MGS, etc. Consistency started to build. More solid shots, more greens in regulation, better putting. Still not where I want it to be but we're making fast progress.


For 2018, assuming I get to play as much as I hope, my goal is to bring the scoring down 80 or below. If play time doesn't work out, mid 80's will be acceptable. That's where I was 20+ years ago.


Ambitious? Yup. Doable? Yup again. It's close. I can feel it. The mental side is coming along nicely. The physical side needs a little help, I'll have to invest in some lessons this summer. A first for me. But if I'm going to make my goals I'm going to need to get over my allergic reaction to spending money.

My name is Scott Huber

I am from State College Pennsylvania

I am left handed

My current club make consists of

Ping G 3wood

Ping G hybrid

Hogan Radial 3-PW(yes the clubs from about 1989) forged

Ping glide 2.0 58

Inertial putter circa 1990


Handicap I am guessing about 10

I took 20 years off of golf as I was an avid cyclist, too many friends getting hit by cars, and I don't care fore Mountain biking. I can walk in Golf and I played from about age 10 until age 30 on a daily basis.

I purchased a few clubs recently as my woods were Langert woods from 1990

I have always spent a lot of time on the driving range when I played, I have a very good golf swing and am a pretty consistent ball striker. Have been back to practicing now for about two weeks. This program would give me a chance to really develop and work on the details of my game as I get back into things.

Planning on spending a lot of time working with new technology, swing analysis and simulators to work on the details of ball striking.


I have been working in the simulator some lately, my swing is a few degrees inside to out on average and my swing speed is 85 to 90 mph depending on how I feel.


The most interesting aspect of this test to me is that it uses built in monitoring on the club. When I last really played golf I really relied on intuition only.
