These irons haven't lost their copper finish after four rounds of golf because I don't hit them on sandy range tee boxes. It's not that I avoid the range, it's just that I have zero time for pre-round/in-between round practice. I'm that guy rushing to check-in, hit a few putts, a few chips, a few swings of the swing trainer and off I go. Once the kids get older and I have more free time, I'll return to the practice life. Until then, the irons will continue to look pristine.

Sweet setup @txgolfjunkie! Do you get irked at all by having three different finishes? I added an i500 3 iron utility setup to my bag of black irons & wedges earlier this year and it's been bugging me big time, but wondering if I am alone in my ocd-ness. 

Wonder if they are going to take that finish through to the utility/wedges...would be pretty cool to be able to rock a full set of copper beauties.

The last piece of the puzzle arrived today... The gang is all here!

The bag arrived and while I would like to post some professional photos, my oldest (three years old and acts every bit of it) couldn't grasp the concept of privacy and personal space so... Here's reality at my house as I try to snap some shots of the bag:

'Dad, I'll open the box...this is a gift for me.'

After telling me this was his golf bag, this was his negotiation face with his mom over who gets to have the golf bag first.

Gotta do a QC check on the bag legs.

This insulated pouch is probably the biggest one I've seen. You could definitely fit a couple be...sodas in there.

The base of the bag is key because this needs to fit well in the golf cart. Sure, there are a lot of features if I ever wanted to carry my bag, but as a resident of Houston, walking season is a few weeks in October/November and March/April...other than that, it's cart life.

The bag is set and ready for the CCC5.

In a perfect world, I would like the 4 utility to be either black or copper but the silver finish is matte so it doesn't cause any issues. I know Cobra's black finish a few years ago was a black diamond coat that really held up well. I don't think the wedges are that same type of black finish as it is showing wear pretty quickly. The copper finish does hold up pretty good as long as you're not beating balls on a sandy range. The few marks on the face are due to dirt on the ball at impact. The copper heads and black AMT shafts really look good out on the course.

Love the stand mechanism on the bag. Will make it perfect for using with my clicgear. No dedicated putter spot, which is something I enjoy but will make do without. Seems a little light on the pockets relative to other bags in the same weight category

Great looking bag. Love the way the wedges came out! Also I don't usually use OEM headcovers but those would make me think twice - very clean and, dare I say, un-Cobra-like?

Got out for 9 with my dad, drove the ball better. The wedges are slowly becoming my favorites. 3 wood was off today though, couldn’t get much distance

First round with all cobra clubs, only got 11 holes in. I really struggled with the short irons and wedges at one length. I had one ball OB with driver but overall the driver is really good and hit a really good one over 320 today but overall was closer to the 290 range consistently. I think my titleist with a Ventus TX has more juice in it but the XB looks huge behind the ball and inspires confidence. Even though it says 1/11 fairways my course has a lot of doglegs and short cuts, so I really had clean shots on 10/11 holes just couldn’t get the wedges dialed in at full length. Distances from 50-120 were difficult today with missing some long and some short. I’ve been doing better with approach and short than the stats show here, so definitely room for improvement. I haven’t had a chance to practice yet, and I can tell I really need to dial in wedge distances and get comfortable with partial swings with the wedges. Looking forward to 18 tomorrow.

I'm on a short vacation with the wife and baby (left the boys with the grandparents) and I snuck out during nap to play down here in Galveston. This was such a short notice vacation and golfing opportunity that I forgot to pack golf shorts... So I played in a swimsuit... And I know that angered the golf gods. 

I was the first one off at 1pm after a morning tournament and they let me play a twosome with a random pairing but we were in separate carts. We took off and finished the round in 2hrs and 10 minutes. It was incredibly quick and the most common phrases muttered between Chuck and I were "good shot/putt" and "see you at the green". 

I had setup my Arccos Link, app, Apple watch and Bluetooth speaker prior to the first swing and didn't check it until the 15th green to verify a distance off the tee... Arccos said I was -57 for the day with 14 holes in one... It didn't pick up a single shot. I was devastated. I was playing well and since we were playing fast, I didn't remember exactly how far each shot traveled and exact pin placements. The best I could do was try to remember simple golf stats on the round. Here's what I recall:

Fairways: 12/13 - these are very generous fairways but I was still impressed with the accuracy I'm seeing in the driver and big tour 3 off the tee. The early days of hard draws and hooks appear to be gone for now. 

Greens: 14/18 with 3 up and downs. I only had a few bad swings on the day and most were on long par 3s where I missed right of the green. 

Putts: No 3-putts, good distance control on greens, a few birdie putts and of course the missed putts inside 10' that can turn a round from good to great. 

Oh and you might be wondering what the weather is like in Galveston... Check this out from the local weather service:

@TBTi apologize for not giving you a heads up as this round was planned the night before. I've got a reminder to let you know when I'm down here in September so we can go tee it up at Moody.

@txgolfjunkie I'm gonna have to make an effort to play on the island sometime. These Cobra threads always get me in trouble. One of them convinced me to buy a 3 wood, and you're going to convince me to drive 1.5+ hours to play on the island. Ha!

First round with my standard size grips ( removed the crossline plus grips and put on standard tour velvets ) and man what a difference in comfort level. Hit the driver the best o have since I got it and the irons we’re definitely more manageable. Wedges were great on approach shots. Course was in really poor shape around the greens which led to some brutal lies and awful chips, but still scratched together a good round.

Yeah, I believe Cobra adds an additional 2 to 3 wraps (this may have already been mentioned) on their factory stock standard grips, which I learned after I bought clubs from them and eventually grew comfortable with and prefer. 

Moved away from their One Lengths and got the MCCs in standard size for my Maltbys and now it feels like I’m choking the club. 

Now I’m a huge believer that grips make all the difference in the world. 😆

Moody is the Texas budget version of Kiawah's ocean course. The wind is always howling, it's the same grass tee to green at Kiawah, there's water, sand and high grass everywhere... But there are generous landing areas and fairways, greens are big and aren't too crazy with undulation, and it's about $400 cheaper! The course isn't brutally long unless you play it in a North wind and then the long holes are into the wind and short holes are downwind. The paspalum grass really does give way to excellent lies in the fairway and around the greens while it keeps the greens from being overly fast. 

Also, the course actually looks really good a few weeks after a tropical storm blows through as the high tide salt water kills the weeds while the paspalum thrives on the salty water. If they have a bunch of rain, the weeds and St Augustine can start popping up and the greens can get a little bumpy.
