Nice write up David. I see you also change shafts between the mid and high irons.  Was this something that Cobra's fitting staff suggested; a common byproduct of the one length shaft option? 

That is part of the ONE length protocol for shafts. I fit perfect into there stock steel shafts.

It was over a crest and got some generous roll to the hole. I can only assume anyway as I couldn’t see over the hill.

Charleston is a great city, glad you enjoyed your visit!

Patriots Point is a lovely course with great potential, but it isn’t being cared for, unfortunately ☹️ ... #17 and 18 are the best parts of the course. But you’re right, it’s okay ... and the current fee w/ cart is $80+ now for a morning weekend round. 

Rumor has it that private investors are looking into buying the course from the Bobby Jones Golf company. Here’s to hoping they do  

Funny you bring up Patriots, it was the site of my last good round in a while. 😕

Very Nicely done.. Does it still have a gator that lives in the pond on I think it was 12 or 13?? I was warned about him and to be on the look out for other along the back by the creek.. Oh Goodie.. Just what a guy from seattle wants to hear.. LOL

The one nice thing about an irons only challenge is that it has given me the chance to really practice with the irons and the hybrid. I was not in love with either for the first few weeks, but I'm happy to say they are coming around after a really great range session today. 

With both, but the irons especially, I just need to relax and take smoother swings and they are pretty darn good after that. I'm starting to get a good feel for what I need to do in order to get the results I was seeing in my last lesson two weeks ago. It's been a pretty substantial change in the way I feel my ground/foot pressure move throughout my swing, and it's taken me a while to get used to. To top it off, I was getting the club face too open on the back swing and that wasn't helping things any.

Still, the takeaway for me is that with the x-stiff C-Taper Lites, I need to take the smoothest, tension-free swing that I can to get them really responding.

I'm assuming this reads ball speed and estimates smash and therefore, clubhead speed? Interesting that you're a full 7mph slower with 7i vs 6i

Head-to-head with Trackman, the ball speeds are pretty much spot on, and consistent.

Clubhead speed can vary quite a bit. I've noticed it more often when it's sunny (today) or if the divot comes up into the line of the ball/club after impact. 

I would guess the 6 iron was an over read, average CHS across 20 shots was 91.7 with a deviation of four. Says my 7 iron was averaging 90.6 across 10 shots with deviation of 1.6.

As we've discussed in another thread, it's a toy first. But over enough shots you do start to see patterns.

I was really planning on getting in on this, but waiting until today to issue a challenge because of work. Well, they decided to call production Saturday and that only leaves enough free time for me to get in nine holes this weekend and still be able to take care of other things. 

Irons only rounds are fun and so far each one of you are doing a great job scoring without having woods in the bag. Keep up the great work!

Wow that was a lot of work today!!!!!!! Hot and muggy , scorching 95 plus with little breeze and 85% humidity🌤️ Thank goodness for a few clouds to cast a little shade.

I did not have my best swing today but my putter was pretty damn good for me. Based on my results I'm kind of like others on doing the irons only...why do we have so many clubs?

Played with the same ball all day ( I rarely do that), learned to hit my hybrid (20 shots), Pw (16 shots), and putter (31 putts). Here is your target y'all!

It’s honestly incredible how many shots you guys are getting with the different clubs. I’m pumped to give this irons only round a go tomorrow morning. Can’t wait to get some extensive arccos data on my irons to boot
