COMPETITORS ANNOUNCED: #CobraConnect Challenge 3

Recommended Posts

  1. Alec; Dallas, TX; 50 rds/yr
  2. @alecchaseevans on instagram
  3. Handicap 11, Swing: ~105
  4. Probably easier to see in my signature, but TaylorMade M2, Cobra F8+ 3W, 718 AP1 irons, mixed wedge set 
  5. F9 Conventional Irons, with desired driver,wood,hybrid, wedge loft/specs. Would LOVE the Ultralite Stand Bag!

Although those are all of the answers you required, I feel like adding some additional detail and context might showcase that I am a more than ideal candidate for club testing!

I am a data-driven, golf-obsessed player who lives, eats and breathes the data from clubs, balls, shots and rounds. I have a bachelors and masters degree in Statistics and work as a Data Scientist.👨‍💼👨‍🔬 I analyze data and build models every day. Working with golf data is my favorite type of data to play with. Analyzing my launch angles, spin rates, ball speeds are all instrumental when deciding what clubs to play/buy and when analyzing my game. 

I currently already use Arccos with SEVENTY rounds logged! This will give me a significant competitive advantage over other testers as I already have a deep amount of data regarding my current performance, club-gapping, personal bests and handicaps (see attached). 

This will allow me to make direct comparisons to my current bag vs the Cobra clubs that come with this challenge. Also, I frequently record my swings and analyze them from a technique perspective. While of course there is a still plenty to work on, my form is in the best its ever been! I've attached a recent video from a driving range session! This thing was BOMBED!💣

In addition to my data driven approach and savviness, I also have a strong Instagram following with almost 1, 000 followers! I post tons of pictures of my new dog and some videos from my swing over the years! Documenting the progress made throughout this challenge would be one of the most fun parts for me!

All in all, I wanted to highlight how interested in this challenge I am, as well as how invested I am in my golf game. I will go to the ends of Earth to break par! Hopefully, with these new Cobra clubs, that would be possible 🙂 

I hope this added info helps and I hope I win!!
