(5) COMPETITORS WANTED: #CobraConnect Challenge 3

The premiere event of the summer is upon us and it promises to be bigger than ever.  #CobraConnect Challenge 2 was the largest test-related thread in MyGolfSpy History as five competitors battled it out through unique challenges over an 8-week period.  The resounding success of that event, and a new line of F9 clubs has inspired Cobra to come back with a vengeance.  5 lucky competitors will receive:

I am an avid golfer and former local club professional/general manager. I've been a loyal Taylormade driver/fair wood player since the Burner Bubble was introduced all the way up too now and my M6/M5 I alternate between. As far as irons go I've been hitting Titleist since 2001 as well as Vokey wedges. I know that Achusnet owns Titleist, Cobra,and  FootJjoy. I am a +1 handicap at the local club overall scratch to a 2 elsewhere. As you know the handicapping system is still not the best. Anyways I play or practice at least 5 if not 6 days a week be it an indoor practice area to open range because of the weather.  As I said I'm a lifer when it comes to my equipment. I'd love a chance to test and play for a season equipment that could possibly get me to the next level i.e. Monday qualifiers.  If Cobra is that club that does that fantastic. My issue is driving accuracy and consistancy. Iron and wedge wise I need my proximity to the pin and GIR to improve. Putting however my Scotty Cameron Newport from 2001 will never leave the bag lol. Hopefully I've made a good enough case to be a tester for a Cobra bag. I am extremely active on social media and I will give Cobra and its products praise or I will speak my mind of flaws.
