Week 7 Recap

The Cobra seasons always feel so long at the outset then zip by before you can blink once they get going. Week 7 has drawn to a conclusion and we're really nearing the finish line with two of our competitors separating themselves but others still within striking distance if they get the right bounces. 

Alt Shot.jpg

Scores came in on both ends of the spectrum this week as the teams of #cuetheduckboats #teamcobraone both went low low low low. @B.Boston and @Lacassem went the lowest and got this week's win. By virtue of being on the winning team, Lacassem wins his second prize of the summer so he's reached his max. Congrats!

Week 7.jpg

Heading into the final week of the season, @B.Boston finally overtook @daviddvm and we've got a real nail-biter going into the final week!

Week 8 - Caddie, Do You Know De Way?

Competitors: This week, our competitors are charged with playing a new course (or seldom played) and using Arccos Caddie to navigate the course. They may disagree with Caddie for a 1/3 stroke penalty at any time but otherwise need to follow the recommendations. Standing on each tee, you get strategy choices...they'll pick one and follow the club recommendations from there. Lowest CCNet wins!

Fans: Everyone loves a good prop bet. Attached to this thread, you'll find a poll with prop bets available for your betting consumption. These will cover many areas of this last week's challenge. We also need your help voting on your favorite follow throughout the challenge for the social aspect of the overall competition. Good luck!

 

(If you don't see the poll, hold your horses and check back later)

I totally think it’s worth upgrading to a finished length. You may also want to try adding a few grams of head weight too.

After my experience with my Ping G30 cut down, my M5 at std (choked up), and Speedzone at your length I have no intention of playing anything over 44.5 in driver again.

I have to admit this whole discussion is new to me.  I mean how in the heck did this transition to long driver shafts get started?  Did the pros start the movement only to quickly realize it was not an advantage?  Further, why are OEM's still making standard lengths for amateur players longer than what tour players use?  Lastly, I don't recall a "tour length" shaft being an option when I got fitted for the G410P as part of my MGS Tester/Review.  I mean I totally get that there isn't a one size fits all, and that a competent fitting will yield the optimum for any given player/swing but, if off the shelf shafts are still "too long", why are OEM's offering those as standard length.

It's crazy to think we've already reached the final week of the challenge! What a fun and crazy summer.

I know I'll say it again before the end, but a massive thanks goes out to MGS/Cobra/Puma/Arccos for arranging this awesome opportunity. And it's been great getting to know more about each of the competitors and commenters in this thread.

I unfortunately had to cancel tomorrow's tee time because the weather is not going to cooperate with rain and thunderstorms forecast all day. But my Thursday round is looking good, and I'm going to look around for a tee time Friday if I can find one as well. This last week is a good opportunity for me to get out and explore some of the other great courses we have in our area.

I'm still proud of you regardless of the finish! All of the testers have done a fantastic job 👏.

You guys have all done an amazing job this year and it's definitely a nail biter coming down to the end. This should be a fun week and I can't wait to see what prop bets the mods have in store for us. Congratulations go out this week to @B.Boston and @Lacassem for taking the week seven prize and to @daviddvm for keeping the race tight. It was cool to see how well your partner liked the one length clubs and how well y'all did this week. I can't believe it's coming to an end, it should be a good one.

I'm intrigued to see how many of our competitors will disagree with caddie. Will someone go all the way with the recommendations? Good luck this week to all of you!

Good luck all this week! Has been a wild one for sure and can’t wait to see the results. Start to finish this has been great reading reviews and keeping up with all challenges.

as one who has followed the caddy before I can’t wait to see folks choices on this one. Close it out strong!

Yep, I played there for the first and only previous time last year (from the whites) and it’s a beast from there! It’s situated on an Indian reservation in the middle of nowhere. Its a beautiful setting, surrounded for miles by wide open rolling prairie. That said, it is maintained absolutely perfectly with super quick greens, and is 100% my favorite course. I’d say it’s an absolute must play if you’re in the area... but I’m not really sure why you would be.

Seriously, check out this photo gallery which doesn’t even do it justice:

Well testers, this has been an absolute pleasure to follow and occasionally participate in. All 5 of you have done a sterling job and you all deserve to win but there can be only one...

My question to you all is, now that you are all well into this challenge and knowing how it has gone, would you have had a different set make up? Would you have approached the challenges differently?

About 10 years ago I probably would have made a specific trip to get there  after seeing those photos but not now. Maybe In 10 when the kids are older.

lots of Jones courses out this way so I have no doubt it’s beautiful And challenging. Good luck this week!
