#CobraCONNECT Challenge 3


Recommended Posts

Hello my friends, I know it's been quite a while but I thought I would dredge this up again and give you all a little update.
I have been playing very little golf this year so far due to a couple of reasons. First I have  just bought a house with my much better half, so that took up a lot of time in December and January (our summer. We are both delighted and are loving life at the moment. Second reason... back in October I did a 10km race down a hill. At one point I thought I had hurt my left Achilles tendon and then a few days later my hip started to hurt. I went to the doctor and it turns out that I have no cartilage on the top of the ball in my left hip [emoji24]. So the best solution is total hip replacement. Needless to say I have had to cut back on golf. Still it could be worse and my op is set for May the 4th. If I have to be part metal and part ceramic I thought Star Wars day was appropriate.
The golf I have played has again shown me that these clubs really are suited to me. There is not a single club that I worry about pulling out of the bag and each time I play there is always a "man I Love this club" moment. The upgrades to Arccos seem very good too. The Pin adjustment is much better, the accuracy is great and the updated maps are excellent.
Ok that's enough for the moment, I will keep on golfing as much as my broken body allows and keep you all updated. Bring on July when I will be recovered and out of pain!!
 

My goodness. That’s a heck of few months. Congratulations on the house. But that’s awful to hear about the hip.

Best of luck with the surgery and I look forward to hearing about your new low scores when you’re fully ready to play all out!

 So the best solution is total hip replacement


Did that in Feb of 2016. Eight weeks later I was playing again at full strength. Easiest thing ever!

Do the PT, walk, walk, walk. Good luck!!!

So sorry to hear of your calamity Nunfao, when the dr told me ankle surgery to repair the ligaments would keep me off the foot for up to 4 months, I chose to continue to wear my brace and keep playing. I just could not fathom 4 months lost.

You, on the other hand need the replacement as bone on bone is very painful. Get it done, and recover. We need great Spies like you on the forum.

Budgetgolf.com has 17% off most items with discount code Lucky17.  They also have the absolutely fantastic Cobra F9 driver marked down to $250.  I'm no math major but using the discount code gets you one of the best drivers from last year for only $207.50 before taxes.  That's a no brainer for anyone looking to upgrade an older driver or someone that wants to see what Cobra is all about.

Excellent news! Looking forward to hearing how the new hip works for you on the course.

Can we do this as an MGS review? 

Looks:
Just like the old hip.

Feels:
A little stiff when it rains

Plays:
The way it's supposed to, but without the excruciating pain of bone rubbing on bone

Glad to hear things went well.  Hopefully you'll be fully healed up and ready to go for whenever we can convince MGS to have a battle of the Cobra Connect all-stars event.

That would be awesome!! But a world tour would be better, you know some games in the US, some in Australia with @joyzee10, here in NZ and then a grand final at, say St Andrews?

I like the sound of this.  Boys start collecting your scratch-offs and playing the Powerball.  We should be able to get our odds around 1 in 100 million between the lot.

And why do you think last years crew would even make the Cobra Connect All Star team?  We can still talk smack right?

If there is an All-Star team, and @Bucky CC isn't on it, what are we even doing here? And any All-Star team would be silly to not have @Nunfa0. You gotta at least have someone on the right side of the ball on the team. 

As the caboose, I'll just switch over to being a cheerleader for the 2019 Cobra Connect Crew.
