Alright, so last night prior to the scramble I hit about 30 shots with the 4 iron on the range. I had some low bullets, but most of them were fine, they are about average trajectory for me for a 4 iron. I was however convinced that they weren't going the 200 yards or so that my old one did. 

So on our second to last hole yesterday in the scramble we had 205 to the pin and sure enough, I didn't even hit the thing that well and It went dead on line right at the flag. once we get up there I'm the only one in our group to hit the green and its 10 feet in front of the pin...That was one of the putts I made..but the point is, it works, it doesn't feel like it works, but it definitely does...

@goaliewales14 I can't stress enough though that with the one lengths, more than any other club I have ever hit, overswinging the short clubs (4,5,6) will only result in tragedy. You really have to just get to the point mentally where you trust the process and trust the lofts and just swing it smooth and watch what happens...

Sounds like a mental block, I have suffered the same one many times. Keep fighting brother, I'm sure it will come right when you need it 😁

Thanks yeah, its just some practice needed I think. I mean I've played 27 holes with it. I have had some really good shots, but with my old F7 I always felt like I could walk up and smash it and not have to worry *too* much.

Bardle we need to keep our eye on Nunfa.  His advice may just be reverse psychology.  He's sneaky like that.

Enjoyed reading the intros and the pre-chatter. It looks like this group is going to have a lot of fun during this challenge. I've got some interest in the Arccos system, and potential for a full fitting through Golftec due before next spring, so I'm following along to see how the game tracking helps you guys, and the performance of the Cobras. I got a chance to hit the F9 driver at a local demo day and really liked it.

Hit 'em well fellas, and have fun!

Well.... the driver is nice, the wedges are sexy, the three wood flies nice, the hybrid is a surprise and have I mentioned the irons....


Ok... so would you say the hybrid is an early favorite/go-to? Seems like there’s always that one club you can always pull with 100% confidence in every situation. I totally get that the whole set is amazing, so do you already have a “security blanket” or is it still a solid competition?

It really is early days so no clear favorites yet. The hybrid is the club that at the beginning had the smallest chance of staying in the bag. Let's just say it's chances are improving and leave it at that for now....

Sunk 3 of our teams 4 birdie putts with the new stick. One of which was a 25 footer.... You Bucky fans sure you don't want to jump ship now? Before it's too late? 

That's why the driver is misbehaving, it's jealous of the new putter!! Wedgie and your wife must have spilt the beans in front of it 😂😎

My security blanket is surprisingly the 54 degree wedge. I'm not sure what it is but I never chunk or thin the thing. For the first time in my life I have wedge shots check up and spin back, the only thing I'm still developing is feel for shots inside full range(100 or so). 

...Although...this is a looks thing, I'm already starting to see the finish wear on the wedge which seems odd to me..I hit it alot but I always wipe it off if its wet..I mean its only been like a round and a half that I've used it..Any of you other guys noticing this? 

And also the 7 iron, classically. I just never have trouble hitting it and its always dead straight.

I haven't noticed wear with any of the clubs.  Everything is started to get nice and dirty, but there is no wear on any of them.

Not sure what my favorite club is yet.  From the usages stats the driver and 58° wedge both have been used more than double any other club.  Maybe one of those?

I definitely need to play more rounds.  Last night I was 134 yards from the green and Arccos Caddie suggested a 6 iron.  Earlier in the round it recommended a 7 iron from 180 yards out (which is probably correct).  Apparently I've only hit my 6 iron once in 48 holes and it was a 130 yard punch out.  All of my irons have pretty messed up smart distances with the limited rounds we've recorded so far.

Here's what I'm talking about on the wedge finish.

Cobra uses the same DBM finish as what is on my Maltby wedges. It wears, but unlike PVD, it turns more a shade of gray than wearing to plain metal. The finish is actually impregnated into the metal and is not just a coating.

Both of my wedges were new this spring. The leading edges of both are now pretty worn. Not in an ugly fashion, though.

Did you two get carried away in here?

Wedgie, do you really think we are going to admit that we're missing our current gamers this early? We have so many rounds to play, so many challenges to win, so many burns to deliver...😁😎

Maybe so, but admit it, it was fun to read. 😁😎

Regards,

Team GB13

I think it's safe to say that would be way beyond his mental comprehension.

A good challenge would be listening to the Arrcos caddie for a round and see what happens.

Hmm, that sounds like a good idea for a future week challenge.  Stay tuned...

I would love to be playing with anyone of you guys when you had to take the caddie advice for every shot.

You mean like "These are not the irons you're looking for or are they?"

I may surprise you Wedgie, just like your irons did last year....

Yeah, my irons really surprised me.  So Nunfa, what is the biggest difference between your Mizunos and the Cobras?

I think you would hear some very choice words not meant for children.  There would be a lot of "Turds!" and "Double Turds!" being thrown around.
