I was ready to put my Titleist TS2 driver back in my bag after analyzing my stats on Arccoss. I had lost 20 yards off the tee since putting the SpeedZone driver in play. But to the SpeedZone’s credit my accuracy has improved. I was fit into a Tensei blue 6.5 stiff shaft but received a Tensei blue 6.5 regular flex shaft for the competition and it performed well but the loss of yardage really bothered me. I had been following the Motor X shaft review thread and really was impressed with the results or the testers. So I wanted to try a Motor X shaft on the SpeedZone driver 🏌🏻‍♂️I found what I feel would be the appropriate stiff Motor X shaft for my 98 mph swing speed and Googled that shaft... bingo! I found one with the SpeedZone tip and two days later when the bidding was done it was headed my way!

The color scheme goes perfectly with the Cobra [emoji216] colors. But how did it play last week for the first time? I gained my 20 yards back and my confidence in my driver is heading in the right direction! Just look at the numbers.
After one round average drive was 245 yards vs 227 with the Tensei Regular flex shaft.
The SpeedZone driver is staying in the bag a little longer 🏌🏻‍♂️

YES! So glad you were able to make it work! Cobra has really inserted itself as a strong driver company with its last 2 releases, IMO.

What's it like having a one-way miss?

 

Seriously, what's it like? I thought I had mostly eliminated the right side mid-summer, but the high flare has come back with a vengeance and is now my predominant "shot shape" off the tee.

Well worth the wait, thanks Cobra and Puma!



These are very comfortable, and will be well used as my range and simulator shoes.

The spikes are also subtle enough that I could see wearing these off the golf course with shorts and tee as well.

Cleared by my doctor to start light chipping and putting, but no full swings yet. Woo hoo! And if anyone says they saw me take 5 full swings with my gap wedge & pitching wedge at the range today they are damn liars!😆

I'm glad to hear you've been cleared to hit golf balls in some way, shape, form, or fashion. That's awesome man! 

P.S.

This has been the magic sauce for me.  Yesterday I kept repeating at set-up (on all shots) to reduce grip pressure, slow tempo, and quit overpowering the swing... pure magic.  Seems like I hit them just as far not trying to hit them far. I don't know why it is so dang hard for this to be the natural swing.  I can only conclude that good golf swings are at risk to the laws of entropy 🙂.

I was going to also quote Bryan's plaque post, but after two near misses, thought the better of it 🤣.
