2. Ping i20 8.5* Driver, TaylorMade Burner 2.0 15* 3-wood, TaylorMade Burner 2.0 19* hybrid, Srixon 765 4-PW, Vokey SM 52, 56, 60* wedges, Odyssey White Hot #1


3. 4.7 Index


4. The Srixon irons listed above were new last season.  Whether it was a change in specs (1* flat and 25 gram lighter shafts) or a change in my swing, I do not hit them well.  My goal for 2018 is to figure out to hit my irons -- or better yet some new Cobra irons -- again.  For the record, the Srixon's replaced Cobra s3 Pro irons and it looks like a bad move.

2. Titleist 915 D2 (Diamana Blue S+60), 915 F2 (Diamana Blue S+), 915 H (Diamana Blue S+), 816 H (Diamana Red): 714 AP2 5-AW (XP95 S): Titleist Vokey SM5 54, 58: Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2.  I have Game Golf classic but I am currently not using it because I don't like having to tag shots and correct my rounds on the computer.  


3. 13 handicap


4. Get more GIR with better iron play, I  currently struggle with my mid-irons on approach shots.  I've been considering trying game improvement clubs which may provide a little more distance.  My main goal is to break 80 at my home course.  A stretch goal is to achieve an eagle.


Thank you for the consideration

4. Just moved right next to my home course, so plan on spending much more time out there to get my handicap back down to where it was before my daughter was born! Even if I can't get it back to a 3, I want to get it moving that way. Analytics are a huge part of what I do in the professional world, and would love to see how I could use it to improve my game.

Yes, yes and yes!  I am an avid player and love the game. Testing the Cobra clubs and sharing my progress, personal golf experiences would be a great honor.


I so often enter a golf shop and get shuffled to the 'womens' section and not taken very seriously about my needs or my game.  Having a set fine-tuned to my game and swing is critical for improvement.  I would be a perfect candidate for this test as the irons I currently play are 10 years old.


Driver:  Ping G Le

Irons:  Callaway 2008 Big Bertha L-5 iron

Fairway woods:  Callaway X Hot/Adams Ovation 11, 9, 5, 7, 3

Putter:  Ping Cra-z 


handicap:  12.1 index


My goals would be to improve my long game.  My struggle has been off the tee, as of late, and my GIR are few and far between.

thank you MGS
