I did not do it on purpose but was happy to see the nice W after I completed by 5th full baseline round.  It actually kind of looks like the Arccos logo.

Hmm if I commit to abusing my new clubs and go for a repeat crown, then does that mean I can count on your vote? 😁😁😁

Is your cheering section going to join you on this quest?

Have fun! 

 

No, the first shot I hit with every club is with a Top-Flite. If it can stand up to a TF it can stand up to any ball. 

Truer words haven't been spoken on this thread.

Just wanted to let everyone know I’ll be in and out the next few days. In Myrtle Beach with the family, going to play at least one round while I’m here. So if you ask a question and I’m slow to respond, that’s why.

Really nice job on the intros guys. This gives me a chance to reset my support based on what I’ve read and one clearly stood out to me as I went thru them. A man amongst boys, a risk taker and only 8 weeks away from a championship. I’ve decided to support Bardle!

One of the new features Cobra has added this year is a wider sole area with a raised portion to minimize turf interaction and lower the CG. I had to read up in order to understand what Cobra was doing.20190609_073104-01.jpeg
My question is how are you guys finding the F9 to perform out of the rough? Are you having more problems than normal with twisting or loss of distance?

Great job during the pre-chatter to all of you, it's been a fun read.

I have not had abnormal issues getting the ball out of the rough with the F9's.  I have found that solid center strikes fly much better compared to my previous irons.

@Shankster that would be me.

It's the part of my game that I'm spending the most time trying to improve.

I'm never going to be bombing the ball 300yds consistently. But, I will need to know how to get up and down.

 @bardle, @Bucky CC, @Nunfa0, @robertson153 @palvord

Absolutely ACE stage 1 fellas, really enjoyed reading them. They are fun, interesting and all the info we are looking to hear.

I suppose I'm even more interested as I tried the F9 recently for 15 minutes and was absolutely smitten, what a great driver it appears to be.

If the rest marry up I'd like to think we'll have a great contest of lower handicaps, some PB's and great stories to read over the next few weeks.

Keep up the great standard fellas👏

My poor offering is on the table 😁

By the way, I have had no issues with the irons out if the rough. The actual contact area on the base of the sole is about the same size as the Hotmetals 😁😎

I guarantee anyone that joins Team Bucky will be dropping bombs for eagle just like me!*  And yes, I purposely played the next fairway over to make sure I stayed as far away from the water as possible.

I saw that pic in the How did you play thread and thought the tee placement seemed odd (I assumed you played the correct fairway). I didn't look at it hard enough to figure out you played the wrong fairway. Well done!

I'm clearly not the best player here, but I do have the most room for improvement. For instance, how about this hole from yesterday...the worst drive of the day, just straight up skyball on the first tee, followed by a thinned hybrid...but then...
