This was my problem with the driver as well, however when I kept it in play I was bombing it. Same for you?

5 penalties off the tee and an 86 is a great day all things considered. Did you use the driver primarily or multiple options off the tee box?

I mostly stuck with the driver off the tee - went with shorter woods and the hybrid a few times when there were hazards I was trying to avoid. And yeah, when my swing is grooved the driver is easy to hit and produces bombs! That course was very tight though, with not much room for error, and I also had to warm up hitting into a net instead of on a range, which makes it harder for me to get things sorted out, especially at 6;30 am when I’m still half asleep 😂

I think you have two issues: Production (of heads) and Sourcing (of components).  Some companies over-ordered shafts and grips to stock their build shops so they could be prepared for this.  Other companies clearly operate a more lean operation where they order certain shafts/grips in more of a Just In Time fashion.

Heck - TXG - a custom build shop - ordered tons of heads, shafts and grips to prepare for this and mentioned on last week's livestream that they don't really have any delays in building customer orders right now.

This was a big reason why I chose Will Peoples. Aside from a very positive experience earlier this season and plenty of positive feedback, I consulted with him and ordered a SIM2 Tensei 1K on a Monday and by Thursday I was on the course swinging it.

Smaller custom shops may be the best bet for a LOT of people...

Yup I’ve used him a bunch too. He will tell you exactly what he has in stock so there is no mystery of why your order isn’t be fulfilled

Bags look great!

One thing I really love about what Cobra has been doing is providing excellent color ways for golfers across the spectrum. When I think of Cobra, I think of bright yellows and oranges, but I know not everyone loves that look. The more muted grey/white combo looks great, just like the peacoat/red option on the woods and the matte white "Avalanche" color from last season.

That being said, I rock my bright yellow/black Cobra-x-Vessel bag nearly every single day at the range. Have yet to see another bag like it.

Cool, I was curious because of the general club delivery delay, and how that would translate for each player, I am glad that they had your lefties out somewhat quick

Wow...this is hurtful. You mean y'all don't remember that I'm the 2012 Texas Left-Handers Golf Association State Champion? I defeated a strong field of at least...15...maybe 17 golfers and I was the only one under 60 years old. 

There are a plethora of gifs I'd like to use right now in response to these statements but I'll refrain. It's Friday and my wife says I need to work on my internet sarcasm. 

Yes, I'm a lefty. 

I actually play with a lot lefties, both of the guys I play the most are lefties. 

As well as my PT, and a few more guys at my work. 

I actually have a great appreciation for lefties, I even practice my left handed swing.

I got rained out this afternoon but was playing decent before the skies opened up.

I missed two fairways by a club length and the third by four paces. The Big tour 3 wood is quickly becoming my new go-to for par 4s. I'm averaging 278y off the tee and hitting 72% of my fairways with it. The Tour 5 is so easy to hit off the fairway or rough. And the driver finally saw multiple pokes over the 300 mark... And it's really starting to fly straight. 

The one green I missed by 10 ft and then proceeded to flub my chip (hence the short game 0.0 strokes gained) but then nearly sank the second chip to save par. 

The irons are spinning the ball a little bit more than what I'm used to and I wonder if the AMT shafts have something to do with it in the mid and long irons. I hit a lot of greens but only 3 approach shots flew the distance I wanted... The others hit short and stopped on a dime. I'm even playing the Titleist Pro V1x left dash to reduce spin.

Anyone have insight between my normal gamers (DG X100) and the AMT white x100?

Shouldn’t really be any difference in spin. It’s the same shaft profile. Only difference is the lower weights in the long irons and slightly lower weights in mid irons. 
 

Could be that you are striking it slightly lower on the iron face due to iron head/sole design and that is giving you some more spin

I’m averaging around 225 yds with it, but pured this one on 18 (a little downwind). Had a 15-20 footer for eagle.

I witnessed this and all three in the group pretty much said "Oh my.." right after he hit as it was tracking right at the pin. One of coolest shots I've seen.

I don’t think Cobra has any choice in the matter, unfortunately. If they don’t have things from their vendors & suppliers, then they can’t send them to the challenge members. I would have to think that they considered logistical issues with custom orders and potential problems before they agreed to hold the CCC with MGS this year. The timing delays stink, as do Joe’s concerns with his shafts, but it’s not like Cobra is sitting there saying “meh”. Their hands are tied in a lot of this I would think, based on my own experiences lately with order delays, product shortages, etc at work. 

This^^^ I read on another forum that a number of Asian factories that supply US OEMs have closed for 2 weeks due to COVID outbreaks. Look at any golf retailer and there are crazy number of products on backorder.
