(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:


1.  Arccos 360 with Caddie 2.0 (to establish baseline numbers)



2.  F9 Fastback Driver and Fairway Wood/Hybrid combo as desired*

3.  F9 Irons (conventional or single length)*

4. King or F9 Wedges*

*All with the #CobraConnect Smart Grips installed (new models available now)


5.  Ultralite Stand or Cart Bag




For those keeping score at home, this is a full bag of Cobra clubs (minus putter) with Arccos to track your data along the way.  This is a serious commitment so think long and hard about the expectations before applying.  We're seeking golfers who can play every week during the challenge, post regularly in the thread, and can be active on social media**.

**Prior account not required, but it will be expected that those without establish a new account for the challenge


This opportunity is open to ALL GOLFERS ON PLANET EARTH


That's right, you read it correctly.  Righties, lefties, men and women from all corners of the international golf market are eligible to compete.  If you'd like to apply for this opportunity, post a reply to this thread only listing the following information:

1. Mike, Madison WI, 25+

2. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter

3. Handicap: 3. Driver swing speed: 108mph

4. Driver: Epic. 3 wood: M1. Driving iron: Srixon U65. 4-PW: Mizuno MP-25. Wedges: Vokey SM7

5. Assuming Cobra's custom shaft options are available, we'll probably want to tweak the specs... But for the actual heads: 9.0°driver, 3-4 fairway wood (Tour if possible), 3H, conventional length irons (4-PW), King wedges (50, 56, 60, Black if possible). 


Driver: :taylormade-small: Stealth Plus 8* (adjusted to 8.75*), Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 70 X Flex

Fairway: :taylormade-small: SIM, 15* (adjusted to 14.25*) w/ Paderson Kinetixx Ballistic TP 85 X Flex

Irons:  :titleist-small: U505 1 Iron (16*), T200 "Utility Build" 3 and 4 irons, all with Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 95 X Flex, :titleist-small: T100S 5-PW with Nippon Pro Modus 120 X Flex (2021 MGS Test). These things are monsters. 

Wedges: :mizuno-small:T-20 Blue Ion 50.07, :Miura: K-Grind 2.0 Black 54* and Chrome 60* w/Accra SPI Tour

Putter: Total headcase and Putter Ho, so there are now 4(!!) in the rotation. Main gamer: L.A.B. Golf Mezz XL 36" Orange. When feeling off, also rotate between :EVNROLL: ER11V ("Murdered Out" Black edition),  :mizuno-small: M Craft Type II Blue Ion and a Toulon Madison 

Yes...that's too many. Lately I've been swapping in/out the 3-wood and 50* wedge.
