Only reason I carry a 64* is because I had my clubs stolen when some dirtbag broke into my car n even though the guy got arrested a few days later trying to sell them the clubs sat in evidence for 9 weeks so I had to swing something
I'm def due for an upgrade, but don't know if I Wana stick with the burner or try something new. I launch my tee shots very high. I'd like to lower the launch angle. Thinking about dropping to an 8.5 from a 9.5.
Try everything you can. My buddy works at Golfsmith so one night I went in there and hit just about everything. I also tend to hit the ball way too high but there were a few clubs that I didn't: Taylor Made R11s, Mizuno MP 650 and Adams Fast 12 LS. I tried Taylor R11, Rocketballz, Callaway Razr Fit, Ping G20, some Titleist, Cobra Amp etc and I tended to hit those high and not too far. Launch angle ranged from 18-24 degrees. With the R11s (I hit that best overall) my launch angle was 13-14 degrees. I didn't expect to like that club at all (still think it looks stupid) but if I can actually hit it, like I did on their simulator (275yrds) I can live with that.
Whats everyone's favorite courses in the area? My favorite I have ever played is Galloway National followed by Plainfield, Somerset Hills, Hamilton Farms (par 3 course is unbelievable) and Alpine.
Played Bayonne a couple of weeks ago - truly a unique course. Wouldn't want to play it regularly, but it's only equivalent is in Scotland.
Also played pound ridge for the first time earlier this year. Ill reserve full judgment until I play it again, but I didn't love it. The course inlay the most is centennial, which is a very nice facility with 27 holes.
I've played Fenway and Metropolis a bunch over the past couple of years - both great Tillinghast courses.

I played Saratoga Spa on Tuesday, beautiful course. My older sopne was at the Mayhem concert at SPAC during much of my round -- it was cool hearing the bands while on the course and knowing he was in there having a blast.
Favorite course I ever played was Rio Secco in Vegas. Went last year, got two "TeeMates" to accompany our foursome, and had a legendary day/night.
