So... I came in Dead Last... even losing to the guy who withdrew with 2 weeks left.
That clearly wasn’t my best performance. Oh well, I still had a blast with this challenge. We’ve got so many great member who contribute to this thread year in and year out, too many to name, but y’all should know how much we appreciate you. 
Somehow, even with a significant swing rebuild, and coming in a verrrrrrrry distant last, I still managed to drop my handicap 1.4. That not nearly as much as our newly crowned champion [mention=85402]B.Boston[/mention], but it’s still very respectable. 
Baseline

Coming into this challenge, my goals were;
1. More Speed, Less dispersion. Doesn’t that sound like the magic formula to lower scores? Well, seeing as this is my first set of properly fitted clubs, I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility. 
2. I want the transition from player’s irons to player’s distance irons to be smooth. Sure, I’ll take extra distance, however, what I really want is more forgiving and accurate clubs that don’t sacrifice much playability. Cobra promises that with the Forged Tec,  and I’m super excited to see if they pulled it off. 
3. I’ll say it, Cobra wedges have been overlooked for years. I want them to live up to the quality of the rest of their line of clubs. I’m talking great feel, great versatility around the greens, good spin rates, and consistency on full shots. The MIMs are beautiful, now they just need to perform beautifully.
Let’s answer these questions! 
1. My decent swings are certainly longer with the SZ, and the dispersion is the same as my old driver. So anytime you can pick up distance without losing accuracy is a win in my book.
2. Welp, almost my entire handicap drop came from better approach play. Seriously, these irons a legit, try them out. I don’t think I need to say much more about that. 
3. Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes. I’m in love with these wedges. I can’t say one bad thing about them, even my playing partners are saying how much better my chipping looks. And I’ve hit some Phil level Phlops with the 58°. 
Overall, I love the Cobra lineup. Minus some nit picky things here and there, I don’t have anything bad to say about it. Most of all, this has been an awesome challenge, and I can’t believe it is over already. Huge shoutout to my fellow competitors for making this such an amazing journey. 


We all know it gets harder to drop those points as you get lower. To drop like that over 8 weeks is nothing to sneeze at!

I can only hope to one day have a fighting chance against the kid in a heads up match. I’ve still got a little way to go before. I’d probably still look like Brady out there against Phil and Tiger if I tried now.

I can’t agree more with the irons and wedges. I too and mmmm super impressed. Long and consistent distance. I don’t think I had one go screaming over the green that couldn’t be attributed to a swing fault or flier lie.

Good luck out there kid... no doubt you’ll be a plus handicap sooner than later.

This should be the time we invert the leader board, so last becomes first.

It might be the margaritas from last night still talking, but this season of the CCC was awesome, I am not joking when I say that it was the best yet.

I want to be one of the competitors so hard next year

I did some testing on the range today and will be dropping the SpeedZone 4 Iron in favor of my Tour Edge Exotics CB Pro Tungsten 3 Iron with a Recoil graphite shaft. Both are 19 degrees.

I don't hit the SZ 4 iron considerably further than the SZ 5 iron from the tee (and certainly not from the ground). Playing around with my Mevo I was able to get about 210 carry out of the TE Exotics on a good strike, which is just enough to better fill the gap between my 17 degree hybrid and 5 iron from the tee. There are two tee shots on my home course that need about 215-225 with roll and they really can't be longer or shorter or else you're stuck dealing with trees.

I attribute the difference to the graphite shaft in the TE Exotics. Something I may look into with the SZ 4 iron is putting in a graphite shaft in it. The head shape is a little more forgiving and launches a lot higher than the TE Exotics.

Both were clear winners against my Cobra F8 22 degree hybrid, but my swing wasn't particularly great today so I may revisit that in the future.

Nicely said! Your immediate comfort with the one length clubs has changed my thoughts on one length clubs. I will check them out when the forged Tec irons need replacing... so in like 10 years.

I’d consider trying out the 5 and 6 iron in one length with this set for sure.

You played awesome this year and it was quite a battle with you going low every week!

And yes, it is a relief to have survived this gauntlet and finally being able to enter the fraternity of #CCC alumni. Hopefully they felt our performance was worthy and we don’t need to sit at the new table for too long!

Mate you boys kicked the door down and have strode straight to the top table!!
