    Be kool..this threads been fun.
    I've heard that as well from a teaching pro I've gotten a few lessons from. He laughed at me when I first showed him the 64, but shut up quickly when he saw me use it.

    Yes a few times, none recently though. Recently, (post 40) under par has been on executive courses only. I lost the flexibility for the long drives of my youth.

    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

    Is that a "gap gap" wedge then?

    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.

    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.

    Has anyone played Berkshire Valley before? My plan of hitting Bethpage Black isn't gonna work as its closed in advance of the Barclays and we have now decided to move our destination to Jersey.

    Never played it but I heard good things - especially as a Muni.

    If anyone has any other suggestions - just looking for a good course within an hour's drive from NYC that the general public can access.

    Neshanic Valley is a nice public course in Jersey that has 27 holes.

    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.

    Love that track. 16, 17 and 18 are a b1tch. If I'm out there, I usually grab a pre-6am tee time. Hit my 8 iron off the tee on 11 within three feet of the hole two weeks ago.
