I'm gonna challenge [mention=85402]B.Boston[/mention] this week. I figure with 7 straight losses for the Red Sox, now is a good time to jump in and join the "Beat on Boston" party!

It’s hockey and basketball playoffs right now... the football will be on.

The Red Sox are doomed. But while they lost 7 in a row I em have won 7 of my 8 challenges. I hope you don’t go into this thinking you’re going to get an AAA effort from me. IMG_1653.GIF

How's everyone going to keep track of which clubs they used for the challenge?  Being the accountant that I am, I'm thinking about tracking it on an Excel spreadsheet on my phone as I go.

@GolfSpy STUDque, do you have to take 14 clubs out or can you be "creative" with your set before you start?

I am printing out a paper from excel. I am a little more organized with a printed sheet. I have a pre plan for each hole....we all know that sh!t is out the window though after I duff an 8 iron on the par 3 I intended on hitting the green on though lol 

pretty sure I have the yardage book from the course I’ll be playing need to double check

That's a good idea. I was also thinking stickers on the soles. Hit shot, put sticker, put away. Once you make it through, take the stickers off one at a time. Make it through again, put stickers back on....hopefully as few times as possible.

Something similar to that but not by hole. So I’ll have the clubs down the left and “first use, second use, third use, 4th use, 5th use arias the top. Once a while column I checked I know I’m reset. From what I was looking at you’ll probably use each club around 4 times in the round.

Keeps the chart smaller and I’ll have arccos to do the summary by hole.

Old school for me! Similar to @B.Boston I'll just mark the column with hole used number as I go, and when a column is full, I can start over. I do think I'll be putting with an actual putter, however, but that strategy could go out of the window if I really need to.

so our FULL set? otherwise the genius mind of @Nunfa0 might be on to something.  I could see myself going at this with something like

DR, 5W, 6, 8, PW, 52, 60. But i'd really have to take a look at the holes and see if it would be worth it to turn over my inventory of clubs more frequently.

You have to use your full set because you're reviewing the full set. Sorry 🙂

That's a common theme throughout is we want you guys looking very closely at everything Cobra has to offer this year so you can provide an honest and credible opinion.

To clarify, and to Bryan’s suggestion ... we can remove a few clubs from the set, only to cycle thru our ‘full bag’ faster? If so, I’d likely remove all my odd numbered irons and give it a go.

Haha no need to be sorry. I have been enjoying all of these clubs! (As long as the hybrid keeps away from the left ball).

Just need to bring a good plan and hope the ball striking is good this week!

this challenge is brutal! But ya know what 14 clubs we are gonna get this thing done. If not for anything else but a good laugh at having to hit a 5 iron from a green side bunker (hopefully we don’t come to that). 
hopefully @B.Boston can get a good clip of some of my markisms going to be plenty of F bombs cut out.
