It's early yet so I'm trying hard not to jump to any conclusions.  The course conditions have been swampy all spring long so it may be winter rust and very wet conditions that are throwing me off.

I'll have more to write once we get deeper into the challenge but there are two things I've noticed so far with the F9 irons.

  1. I find it easier to focus on ball striking with smaller/sleeker irons.  It's still strange to see the huge top line and chunky cavity on the Cobras.  With the new irons I find my mind wandering more to the club than concentrating on the ball and what shot I need to hit.
  2. My old set gave immediate feedback on how well a particular shot was struck and helped diagnose flaws to make mid-round changes.  The Cobras don't have that immediate feedback unless you hit one off the extreme toe or heel.  Every shot seems to feel the same, be very high, and go about the same distance.  That's actually ideal for most shots I'm just not used to it yet.

Is it love at first sight for me with the Cobra F9 irons?  No.  Are they wrong for me and I'll never play well with them?  Hell no!  Give me another month and I'll be perfectly fine.  Looking back at all of these early struggles will make my victory at the end that much more compelling.

Is it just the irons you're struggling with? How are the wedges treating you?

Winter rust and wet/swampy conditions make sense to not playing at your best yet.

Thank you for clarifying your current struggles with the irons. I'm still a novice in the equipment world, so none of these issues would have even entered my brain.

Mainly the irons.  I've hit bad shots with the wedges but also enough really good ones to know that I'll figure them out.

OMG.. you just got suckered in....  New Zealand is to Australia what Canada is to the US. Kind of an annoyance but fun to party with... Canada is America lite, Same basic lifestyle just not quite as good.. 

 Let me guess down under you were left handed also?? 

@Reesedw As Robin Williams said, Canada is a loft apartment over a really great party.

Hey all, I just got caught up with the pr3 test chatter. Seems there is a challenge to see if anyone can Best my number of rounds played during the challenge. I seriously doubt it will be beat. As for any favorites, my blood is blue! #Team153

@fozcycle I doubt any of us are going to be able to tackle your number. I am still baffled by how you were able to pull it off.

Since assassin and 153 are both me, does this mean I have double the chances of you jumping on board?

No, half, if you can't even keep your nickname straight, how on Earth will you be able to stay focused for an entire round of golf.

I think every competitor should have to submit a traditional dance of their ancestors. And yes, if all y'all do that, I'll submit a Muppet dance since y'all kindly pointed out, I must be related to them. 😁

Last I checked, this was a golf challenge.  Not a dance challenge.

I am fully supporting @Nunfa0 and his decision of #nohaka.

Planning to play 18 on Thursday and Saturday this week.  Hopefully I'll have some more golf related comments soon.  Until then...

Who said it can't be both? Remember, we are also having a pontification challenge too.
