First 9 holes outside of the CCC3 have been completed and it went about as expected.  Complete 💩.  30+ driving handicap, 29.3 chipping handicap; just all around bad play.  It's amazing how differently your golf game can be when you are playing for something specific versus just playing for the heck of it.

My league play was exactly the same. 💩 

I shut the system down after the third hole and kept my phone in the bag. I turned the round into a practice round and just kept trying to work on consistent contact.

I'll keep working to get better and show up on the course ready to play.

There's no reason for the thread to end.  I'm most curious about the long term results especially for Bardle.  The single lengths irons are very interesting to me but I still kind of care about you other guys a little.

I'm a little burnt out to be honest. I usually don't play this much golf. So I'm taking a week off and will play a couple of nine holes next week maybe. It's hard to enjoy right now when I can barely get off the teebox

I feel your pain.  I have been struggling with that the past two weeks too.  But, a little evening chase the sun irons/wedge practice has kept me happy.

Ok ladies and gents, my final thoughts, for now.
I knew this was going to be a big time commitment going in, let me just say, it’s a huge commitment. There is a lot of things to do, think about, and write about. It’s not as easy as “get new clubs, play a few times, tell everyone what you think”. I really enjoyed every moment of this challenge, from the hecklers to the competitors, it was all great.
Now on to the good stuff. Here are my pre-cobra stats. IMG_0680.thumb.JPG.2a44cdc3442ff3cd094d2a40d4be8c93.JPGIMG_0681.thumb.JPG.34e495a339b00d91f796d54307ff64a3.JPG
I was actually pretty pleased with my stats at this point. The driving and approach was what I was wanting to improve the most. Here are the final results after the 8 weeks. IMG_0682.thumb.JPG.b84da9b3de59dd2a878ec46befad34b8.JPGIMG_0683.thumb.JPG.b3b3102ea7da28b8b432a4df03e1ccd8.JPG
As you can see every category dropped significantly, with the exception of driving . Let’s just face it, I suck something terrible with the big dog. That is definitely something I have to work on in the off season.
I also had a lot of personal best, 22 of them bad boys. The one I’m most proud of is the fastest round. That was during the four club challenge. I was playing by myself, well the wife rode with me, and not another single person on the course. It helped when you only have 4 choices . IMG_0662.thumb.JPG.0b20e22ea75e581e42538b293bc5f950.JPGIMG_0663.thumb.JPG.920cd4d5ff640d4cdfeaa22c8e974ee0.JPGIMG_0664.thumb.JPG.fca6125baf858a4e320149a829bf6212.JPG
I’m pretty bummed that all this is over. I’ll always check on this thread before I do anything else. Before I forget have to give a huge thank you to MGS, Cobra golf, and Arccos. There were several good candidates to choose from,and I feel extremely lucky to be considered for this.
I want to close by saying the Cobras have a 100% guaranteed spot on this guys cart. From driver to 58* to the bag. My expectations were pretty high for Cobra, and they did not disappoint one bit. If anyone is considering a new set of sticks, please, please give Cobra a shot. Sorry I don’t post a lot of memes or gifs, it’s just not my style. Thank you to all the competitors, and Enrique for keeping me in line this summer, it’s a tough job, or so my wife tells me .

Great write-up and final stats for the challenge! It's awesome to see you are in the single digits with your handicap using the Cobra's.
@edingc congrats on the nice looking shirt and hat! That is how you represent Team Flash in style.

One thing I forgot, someone asked what is our favorite club. Mine is now the 4 iron off the tee. Used it the last couple of rounds, it’s amazing. Could be the sure go to shot on tight fairways. I should’ve know if it’s good enough for Ricky, it’s good enough for me.

And that's a wrap!
We've reached the end.  It's certainly bittersweet but I hope you all have enjoyed the competition throughout the summer.  Special thanks to last year's group for blazing the train as we were able to use many of the lessons learned to benefit this year's challenge. 
Let's get a round of applause for our competitors who stuck it out the whole season!

 
Alright.  Let's wrap up the final results.  For the overall category, the competitors were ranked based on their results throughout the whole challenge. This is where that hard work pays off in a measurable game improvement.  It's a lot to describe so here's a table of everything that went into it:
Overall.thumb.png.6efa8767512f632e462a2e8fa71b0564.png
 
The overall category is worth 2 weeks value so it's not one to take lightly.  With the late season surge, [mention=71790]robertson153[/mention] managed to jump over [mention=80481]bardle[/mention] and make his way into the winner's circle.  The two constants at the top remained as is with [mention=74192]Nunfa0[/mention] in 2nd and [mention=65906]Bucky CC[/mention] as your champion.  [mention=65906]Bucky CC[/mention] won this challenge with consistent excellence as he only failed to place in one week of the entire challenge.  It should be noted that he and [mention=16651]revkev[/mention] BOTH put up amazing scores for the 4 club challenge but were overcome by lower net rounds.  Everyone shot hot fire that week.
Here's how the season played out:
Final.thumb.png.53853f1ef0ca06df3ad771f651b73ade.png
 
This leaves us with the following prizes:

🥇 [mention=65906]Bucky CC[/mention] Head to toe PUMA makeover (hat, shirt, pants/shorts, and shoes) PLUS a special trophy.  I don't have artwork at this time, but Cobra is developing a special Euro License plate for Bucky's trophy case that signifies to all of his guests that he is the #CCC3 CHAMPION

🥈 [mention=74192]Nunfa0[/mention] Wins the combined forum member prizes as he brings home a PUMA Hat, Shirt, and Shoes

🥉 [mention=71790]robertson153[/mention] Can now match his fellow "Blue Blood" teammate [mention=156]fozcycle[/mention] with a PUMA Hat and Shirt

 

 

And.....one final prize.  The forum member GRAND PRIZE.  1600+ posts is a lot to go through so I called in the rest of the staff for their opinions.  As a group, we came to the conclusion that the following member has earned the F9 SpeedBack Driver + Arccos due to the quantity and quality of posts to go along with the sheer stamina of participating in this thread, day by day, from start to finish. 

Congratulations [mention=70071]JohnSmalls[/mention] !!!!!!!!

 

 

 

Thanks again to everyone that participated to make this challenge the best test anyone could desire.  I hope you all found it informative as well as entertaining.  YOU are what makes this challenge so interesting.  
 

From MGS, a SUPER SPECIAL thanks goes to COBRA, PUMA, and Arccos for enabling this ground-breaking test.  Hope we see you all back next year!!!

 
 
 
Finally, to you data heads.  Here's the link to the tracking spreadsheet in case you'd like to see how the sausage was made:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZEe2Hv7tTMzL3vIdEe3WnvsLEir4u51v6G0D6VhmmSo/edit?usp=sharing
 


Wow. Thank you thank you thank you! I would write more but I’m at the course right now preparing for a round.

I guess now we all know Bucky CC stands for Bucky Cobra Champion (sorry, I had to).

Great challenge guys. Thank you for your hard work and the 2 months of reviews. Congrats @Bucky CC on the win. Well deserved, you crushed it. 

Thanks guys for your kind words as well. Thanks @GolfSpy STUDque and the mods. Not sure I’m deserving, but I am very thankful.  Can’t wait to see what the F9 can do!
