It will be an honor to play! To piggy back off and reiterate how great boston sports are some other newer dynamic duos:

I've been thinking about this two man challenge since I first received the calendar for the #COBRACONNECT4 challenge. Unsure of what would be best I've actively talked up MGS to numerous playing partners and many have been interested but none ponied up and became members here. My wife did sign up and she has been on my shortlist but with school starting she has her hands full at home helping my daughter and one of our friends son with virtual classes during the week.  My search continued until, last week when our family friend and my wife's life long neighbor and her little brother's best friend growing up, was down enjoying a martini with me I do make a great dry Vodka martini. This man is referred to around our house as "The Guy"! If something is broken or stopped up or if you're doing home repair or if you need an exotic tool you call "The Guy" he has everything and more importantly he knows how to do everything!  We started talking about golf and he told me he had started playing again ( he and I used to play together pretty often until he was in an auto accident and suffered several broken vertebra and had to give up golf for several years). I told him about the #COBRACONNECT4 challenge and #TeamCobraONE. We discussed one length clubs and the rationale behind the concept." That makes total sense to me" said the man my daughter calls Uncle Randy! I said " well you can try them out next week and be my alternate shot partner in the week 7 challenge!" Randy was reluctant because he isn't playing as frequently or as well as he used to. But I know Randy, he's clutch! He's the kind of guy you know you can count on whenever and whatever the circumstances. 
After my encouragement "The Guy" is now a MGS member and should be a valuable member for sure. This will be the first round of golf we have played together in six years and I am so proud to have such a good friend on #TeamCobraONE  aka #TeamONELength
I'm proud to introduce image.png.722434ddb8c6b830192d241096de696d.png I'll be encouraging Randy to become active as he becomes more familiar with MGS. My home for golf!
I won't be surprised if "The Guy" plays some really good golf!. But one thing I know it will be really good to play golf with  my friend again!


Welcome to The Thunderdome @RLDodson!

Good luck to the #onelengthers out there.

Alright, since the challenge this week involves a playing partner so the Arccos stats will be excluded from my averages I thought today would be a good time to share an update of Baseline vs In-Challenge stats.  

Here is my baseline Arccos stats:

12B16A12-5092-4979-A360-91A7238E7834.jpeg.20655d089d5bde226594078ad1e617d6.jpeg

And my current stats with the #COBRACONNECT clubs:

90CFE7A6-C46B-4B33-B6AF-9B6994CD53C4.jpeg.b6d2778057546554f11517711debd8a8.jpeg

WOW is all I can say when I see those numbers.  All of the Cobra clubs, with the potential exception of the hybrid, immediately and consistently feel good in my hands.  And the distances have been very consistent for me.  I think this, along with some changes in course management (these challenges really make you think!) have caused me to be more focused and dialed in on the course.

Here are the Cobra averages:

66EB68FB-EDDA-40FC-9232-667315256596.png.585acbedcd75692157fef1b02170340c.png

Overall these are right inline with what I was expecting my real world distances to be based on the lofts.  The 5 iron and 9 iron still are slightly inflated due to a few downhill shots.  The 9 iron has as many shots around 135 as it does around 150 so I expect that will move down in the next few rounds.  I have no complaints at all.  The wedges have been incredibly versatile for me and I now rarely take a full swing with the 60 so that yardage is down too.

 

I figure this is probably a good week if any of you guys have any burning questions about the Cobra clubs or challenge in general that I can answer as we don’t have an equipment review to share! I can’t believe that the fall is coming so quickly and this summer of cobra is nearing its close.  I’ve got a few chances left to push my way back on top and bring home the coveted #COBRACONNECT Challenge Championship!

Yes, I give a good mix of credit here.  Most importantly, I have had significantly fewer heavy/chunky shots with the Forged Tec irons.  I'm not sure if that is a result of me reacting to the increased weight, or the sole design of the clubs.  I feel like I have a much better control of the bottom of my swing with these and the distance has been very consistent. This morning round was a great example of it because it was a bit soggy in spots and I normally would have 1 or 2 chunked shots and I was taking normal divots today.  

Secondly, with the challenges I've put additional focus on making sure I get onto the green, or at least don't leave myself short sided.  I'll have to check those stats but I have to believe I'm not leaving as many short as I was to start the year.
