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

Ping Karsten TR Anser putter

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

My name is Sal and I live in Middleboro MA just south of Boston.

 

My clubs are clubs that were made for me by a family friend and are mostly knock-offs.

 

Driver - Big Bertha Titanium 454 10 dergree

3 Wood -  Fairmetal Tour Model(Tight lies knock-off)

5 Wood -  Fairmetal Tour Model(Tight lies knock-off)

Adams Tight lies 16 degree

Hybrid - 653 th Snake Eyes 18 degree

5, 7-9 PW, SW - XPC Plus Irons

Pinemeadow 64 degree wedge.

Putter - Ram FX 10 M3

 

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.

      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.

      OFFICIAL MYGOLFSPY/COBRA CONNECT


       
      DRIVER CHALLENGE
       
       
      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:
       
      Digiburdie                                                    
      BryanGolf                                                   
      TVgolfer                                                       
      TBT                                                              
       
      Team Lexi:
       
      J_Wurz
      EthanSterlingPrice
      BigtazzGolf
      strokerAce
       
       
      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!!!!

      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.

      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!).
       

       
      HOW TO APPLY:
       
      As we said, this one's a biggie, so PLEASE follow these instructions to the letter.
