Can you drive the ball 10 miles off the tee before July?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

It has been an exciting week at Foursum Golf. We just inked a partnership with Cobra Puma Golf. They have always been at the top of our list in regards to companies we'd like to partner with. Our brand personalities are so aligned.. it was a perfect match.

To start things off, we're running a contest called The COBRA GO LOOOOONG! Challenge. We're challenging golfers to drive the ball 10 miles (17,600 yards) off the tee by July.

If you're up for the challenge, here are the steps you have to take:

  1. Download the Foursum Golf App in The App Store or The Play Store .
  2. Open the app and create an account on Foursum.
  3. Once signed up, The COBRA GO LOOOOONG! Challenge page can be found in the “Challenges” section of the tray menu navigation.
  4. Tap the “Take the Challenge” button to enter.
  5. Earning yards towards the challenge is easy and automatic while playing your rounds. Simply add your driving distance manually or tap the “tag drive” feature after you reach your ball.

GOOD LUCK!

Pretty sure I'll fail miserably (Don't play nearly often enough*) but I'll try regarless...

*My math suggest that to get 17,600 yards at 225yrds per, would take 79 drives. Assuming 9 drives per round**, that is 9 rounds in less than two months. We shall see....

**Totally random guess at drivers per round

I think I could do it, but why?  I don't really care when I get to a mile.

I don't think this is all that legitimate though. If you GPS to the ball to tag it via the app, you could easily drive beyond the ball to manipulate numbers. Obviously, the alternative manual entry could result in manipulation as well. Seems like an opening for people to fabricate results to manipulate the contest and steal the flat bills. :-(

We have to somewhat rely on the honor system. Golf is an honest game after all!

That is true, lol. I definitely wasn't meaning what I said in a negative way. I guess I was just pointing out the obvious that people will definitely take advantage of the system.

Congratulations on the exciting partnership anyhow! Hopefully you enjoy continued succes.

At 250 yards that's 70.4 tee shots, or about 5 rounds of golf.*

If you hit it 250.

* I'm not counting par threes.

Is there a special prize for those of us who can drive it 10 miles OFFLINE with ONE tee shot? :-P

Congrats Will, and to Foursum Golf.

Having Cobra partnership could lead to exciting opportunities for the challenge.

The challenge could create an opportunity to start a charity fund raiser locally and or nationally.

In our area during the summer, the PGA has a "Hundred Hole Challenge" played in one day by our Head Professional.

He raises almost $10 K every year for Ranken Jordan Children’s Hospital, Southern Illinois Hospice and the Gateway PGA.

Congrats again and hope the best for your contest.

Thanks, Club Rat. Appreciate the kind words! Implementing a charitable piece is a great idea. Definitely something I'll bring up with the other guys/gals.

    • Flighting, as @iacas pointed out, is another very good technique to take distance off of a full swing distance. I use the shorter backswing/shorter follow through method. Because I find it's simpler... I struggle with flighting. If I want to hit a lower shot, I take more club with less swing. I get what you mean by decelerating though with 3/4 swings. Sometimes it happens to me, and I bottom out too soon, and there you go chunky monkey. My swing thought for those of you who use the shorter swing method (primarily with wedges), is keep your downswing the same tempo as if you were hitting a full shot.  That's just my thought, remember I'm not a pro, and I surely don't claim to be.
    • It's his business what he does or doens't do.  You can encourage his interest, or just stay out of it. I'd absolutely decline the request to teach him and just tell him if he's going to do this, he should get lessons. as for the other thing, he wants to bond with you on this.....I'd just say you like playing 'good' golf with players of similar skills.  So if he wants this hobby to turn into a 'bro' thing, he has to take lessons and get nice gear and be good enough to enjoy the same course difficulty you do.  And you're happy to wait for that, but shouldn't plan to play a lot with you until then. It's not your business what he does it is your business if he wants to do this to be buds with (but only that aspect) It's a HARD transition to go from work focus to retirement - this might be a great thing for this guy
    • School play grounds, when empty of people, and is allowed is a good place to get distances. Myself, I use a dry lake bed  get my carry distances. Roll out after the carry is at the mercy of the course conditions. Uphill, down hill, flat, fast, or slow.  After a while, the golfer, from previous expirience, will know what club to pull for the shot at hand. He may not know the actual distance, but will know which club to use.  I have a personal, mental quirk when it comes to distances. If I see a 7i, full swing distance, I pull a 6i. I always take one extra club to allow for my not so perfect club/ball contact. This has served me quite well over the years. 
    • Nice!!!  I did that with a set of Pings.  Found an Old leather Ping bag from the 80's, added in a whole set of steel eye 2's (2 - SW), found a 1,3 & 5 eye 2 woods and then after tons of searching, found an eye 2 putter.  A complete era correct eye 2 set!  Hangs on the wall in my golf room.  Took it out once to play and had some old school fun that day.
    •   During my bachelor years I had Center Ice. The rare Saturday’s I had off were quite awesome.  Hockey would start at about 11 in the morning and run for a good twelve hours, even later if the Sharks or Kings were playing at home.     Edit: I ate a lot of nachos
