Sneek Peek at New Cobra S2 Max Irons

As always, we’ve been keeping our ears close to the ground in search of new golf gear and we’ve unearthed these pics of Cobra’s new S2 Max irons.

Details are sketchy at the moment but the S2 Max range will be Cobra’s most forgiving in the 2010 line up. Aimed at high handicappers the S2 Max irons will feature a multi-material design to optimise weight distribution and maximise forgiveness.

The Cobra S2 Max Irons offer improved accuracy, distance and forgiveness in the ultimate game improvement package. An expanded sweet zone – thanks to the 9 Point Face Technology – helps with more consistent ball speed across the entire face. The cavity back design complements the wide sole and low profile design in this set, to promote maximum forgiveness and a higher launch.

The set will feature a combination of hybrids and irons to remove the problem higher handicappers have in hitting more difficult long irons. The S2 Max irons will be the final piece in the S2 jigsaw with the S2 forged irons, the S2 irons and the S2 driver and fairway wood already launched.

Cobra golf is set to launch a combination S2 Max iron and S2 Max iron/hybrid set in the Spring as well as a new Baffler with a rail sole to replace the Baffler TWS. All three models are set to be revealed at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida at the end of the month where the Cobra brand is exhibiting.No exact launch date has been set yet but here’s a brief summary from Cobra of what we can expect.

Cobra S2 Max Irons: Completing Cobra’s iron range for 2010 will be a brand new ‘Super Game Improvement’ iron to complete the S2 iron family. Benefitting from the latest multi-material Cobra design, the S2 Max iron / hybrid combination will deliver maximum forgiveness for golfers looking to seriously improve their game.

A cool kid from way-back-when was the latest to offer an opinion. In an interview with, Greg Norman said that Woods’s chumminess with McIlroy betrays his insecurity about being supplanted as golf’s pack leader. A grinning McIlroy said Norman’s comments had led Woods to bestow upon him a new nickname: the Intimidator.

These irons are the ultimate in improving your game! They are expected to be launched in spring-early summer 2010 with the price yet to be confirmed.

A Bahamas Golf Vacation, Staying in a Top Class Resort

A Bahamas Golf Vacation, staying in a top class Resort and Spa on Grand Exuma could be the best of both worlds. Golf for the golfers, and the Resort and Spa for the non golfers, and of course for aprs golf too!! It is situated within the 500 acre Emerald Bay Resort.

The Grand Isle Resort and Spa could be the perfect answer, consisting of seventy eight luxuriously appointed and spacious 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom villas, with either a view of the golf course or the ocean. The golf course was designed by Greg Norman, and in addition there are six floodlit tennis courts and a state of the art fitness centre.

The villas all have a large fully equipped kitchen, a separate living area, a wrap around patio or a balcony. Every villa has plasma flat screen TV in every room, a DVD player, and Sub-Zero appliances, with complimentary WI-Fi Internet access, transport to and from the airport and breakfast every day.

You can organize a local chef to come in and prepare dinner, and that is a very worthwhile thing to afford.
For once the villas live up to their billing, and you will find them very much as they look in photographs on the website. They are certainly worth the money.

Grand Isle Resort and Spa is a really luxurious Caribbean Experience with a magnificent Pool Pavilion as a kind of centerpiece. It overlooks on one side the golf course, and the other the Atlantic Ocean. There is a huge free form infinity pool, and a heated outdoor whirlpool, with an open air bar overlooked by the spa and fitness facility. It really needs to be seen to be believed.

The superb soft white sand beach is reached via natural stone steps from the pool area, and the sea is warm clear and clean, protected by an offshore reef. One of the best features of Grand Exuma in fact are the series of lovely beaches

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at the Pallappa Bar and Grill which overlooks the pool pavilion, and the main emphasis is on locally caught fish and shellfish. One slight difficulty is the fact that whilst you have a beautifully equipped kitchen in your villa, and you could easily cook for yourself, were there not a lack of good food in the market across the road, or in town for that matter. It is strongly recommended that you hire a car for the duration of your stay so you can spread your wings on the lovely island that is Great Exuma

The Grand Isle Resort and Spa sits right next door to The Four Seasons which has several restaurants and a casino. As all the villas come with their own golf cart it isn’t difficult to go there to eat if you get bored on site.

This article set out to describe a Bahamas Golf Vacation on Great Exuma at the Grand Isle Resort and Spa. The golf course is designed by Greg Norman at Emerald Bay, and it is technically known as the Four Seasons Golf Club. It is however felt by many that the Grand Isle Resort and Spa offers much better accommodation and equal access to the Golf Course, that it is fair to stay there and still golf. The golf course is a champion course with many dramatic holes along the seashore and is set to become one of the great golf courses of the world, which makes it about the best place for a Bahamas Golf vacation.

The Grand Isle Resort and Spa has much of the makings of a lovely resort, and its closeness to the golf course is a real bonus. You could easily have a great Caribbean Bahamas Vacation here on Great Exuma.

Learn Golf With A Book

Every golfer who loves the game usually has a few books lying about. These books may be covered with dust but are always there for reference. You can read them at home, at the office or in the bathroom. A good golf book is filled with a wealth of knowledge which you should and must have.

Naturally everyone wants to improve at golf. If you asked Jack Nicklaus this question in his glory years he would have told you the same thing. It’s a challenge that everyone has and it becomes an addiction at times to become better. With a golf book you have a huge wealth of knowledge at your disposal. The knowledge could be from former players, world-class instructors and critics. Anybody who is serious about the game wants to know as much information as possible that may help their game. There are so many golf instruction books out there and they all come in different formats that every golfer will enjoy.

A golf instruction or golf tips book is a great thing to have. I have several that I use and always will use. It is a handy thing to have and refer too when you have some spare time or have a problem with your game. These books are normally written by ex Professional golfers and well-known golf instructors. There is so much information packed into these books they really are worth their weight in gold. These books cover all aspects of golf and are highly illustrated with step by step drawings or pictures.

You do not have to read these books from start to finish. If for example you have a problem with your putting then you can flick to the putting section and find what you are looking for and digest the information. Golf books have this flexibility and are much cheaper than a lesson from a Professional. Did you know Greg Norman learned about golf from a book?

There are many things you get with a book. Generally books will list the basics of golf, history, etiquette, rules etc. This is the sort of information you should have and expect of a good golf book.

I really do suggest you get yourself a good book that you can read. I have done it for many years and it continues to improve my game. Shop around and find the right one for you and your game.
