Cobra F8 & F8+ with Arccos technology
Arguably Cobra’s most exciting and technically advanced range to date.
The range is led by the F8 and F8+ drivers, both of which feature the brand’s first ever CNC Milled Driver Face, allowing for a thinner, faster, and more precise face.
The F8 and F8+ are also the first Cobra product to offer the option of an ONE LENGTH club throughout the set. The idea is to deliver ultimate consistency and simplicity to help improve your game.
Meanwhile, every club in the range features Cobra Connect, Powered By Arccos. This is one of the most innovative equipment advancements in the last decade and features electronically embedded sensors in the grip which automatically record the distance and accuracy of every shot. This information is then sent directly to the COBRA CONNECT/Arccos 360 mobile app.
From here users can review their performance data and access rangefinder GPS distances for more than 40,000 courses worldwide.
If you’re looking for an affordable GPS option, then GolfShot might be for you.
Despite featuring real-time distances to over 40,000+ courses, this is much more than just your everyday golf app. Users can track and record every shot hit, which then translates to on-the-spot club recommendations.
Other features include advanced scoring with Skins, Nassau, and Match Play games, access to 3D course flyovers, and the ability to search, book, and enjoy up to 80% off GolfNow tee times.
Fitting True Spec
If we had one piece of advice before investing in a new set of golf clubs, it would be to get fitted.
Want to do it right? Then head to a local True Spec. The studio club fitters utilise TrackMan launch monitors, and Club-Conex to find the best set of clubs to suit your individual needs.
A brand agnostic fitter, the state-of-the-art facilities stock all the shafts and clubs from the major manufacturers. If you think your game isn’t good enough for a fitting, then you’d be wrong. True Spec service golfers of all abilities, from the beginning golfer to seasoned amateur tournament players and professional golfers.
There are 12 studios located on 3 continents, and spanning 6 countries, with a stunning new facility in the heart of Manhatten set to open in the Spring.
GolfBeer Brewing Co (golfbeer.com)
Golf and beer. That might sound like a combination you already know a little too much about.
Three PGA Tour pros, Freddie Jacobson, Keegan Bradley and Graeme McDowell founded GolfBeer Brewing Company back in 2014.
G-Mac’s preference is a Celtic Style Pale Ale. McDowell describes his beer as the punchiest of the three. Nonetheless, with 5% alcohol by volume, it’s also very conducive to drinking a few on the golf course or in the clubhouse after your round.
We can’t promise it will make you play any better, but it’s sure to make those bad shots a little less painful.
TaylorMade Spider Tour
The putter of choice for World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, the TaylorMade Spider is now a regular feature on both the PGA and European Tour.
The sheer amount of top 50 players choosing the Spider is a testament to its quality. Face inserts are model specific for the players they were designed for. Red is softer for Jason Day and Black is firmer for DJ. Nonetheless, the brand’s Pure Roll Technology, combining 45° grooves with a softer polymer to increase topspin, means both models roll remarkably well.
The club’s unique shape is designed to stabilise the putter head, with perimeter weighting helping to minimise the negative effect of off-centre hits.
