  2. some quick responses to the comments. First, anyone nearby who would like to play should contact me through private messaging. In my experience it is the second best Macdonald course behind National. It is also a Raynor design and it is his second best effort after Fisher's Island. The course is much better maintained but it is not maintained at the level warranted by its design. To be fair it is also a very hard course to maintain well. First, the bunkers are old style and cannot be maintained by machines. In the past, the rough was brutal, but it is mowed now and playable. The greens w
  3. Thought I would say a bit about my home course for the past 35+ years. The YGC is a classic design, the handywork of CB Macdonald, Seth Raynor and Charlie Banks, though Macdonald is usually given most of the credit for it. I have played nearly all of the courses attributed to Macdonald, including National Golf Links, Piping Rock, Mid Ocean, St. Louis CC and more. As far as layout goes, only the National is Yale's equal, and the National bests YGC on other dimensions, including naturalness, and captivating beauty. Routing is not Macdonald's greatest forte, but Yale is an exception. Yale is a

  7. Jules New York City/ New Haven, CT Currently have three hybrids i play depending on circumstance 1. Tour Edge EX10 with Recoil F4 --19* 2. Cobra F6 3/4 hybrid with Red Tie stiff 3. Adams XTD Ti/ 3 and 4 hybrids --red tie stiff Like the head of the Tour edge best, but recoil is not consistent performer Adams has well made heads but shafts in both Adams and Cobra are less than optimally consistent. At 70 yrs old, when I play long courses -- 6700-7000 I am hitting a lot of hybrids into the green and need to hold greens and fly bunkers, etc. ON shorter courses, I use hybrid off s

  9. Jules C Handicap 7 Driver Swing Speed: 86-88 Carry Distance 205-215 depending on smash factor on any particular day F7+ Would love to swing faster, but approaching 70yrs old and there are natural limits I am trying to overcome through Pilates (latest effort); still play from the blues and blacks and that accounts for handicap. Spent most of my life as golfer -- since 12 yrs old -- playing competitively and am obviously in denial about my age -- though a handicap 7 or more strokes higher than it had been for 30+ years makes denial ever more difficult
  10. TIGHTDRAW Hamden, CT/NY, NY Strength: good hands and creativity Weakness: distance control from 40yds in, especially in bunkers Play the new Miura Genesis irons that are phenomenal and Harry Taylor custom wedges that are very good but a bit on the 'one size fits all' theory -- given size of the company and looking for more precise fit to my game

  12. Jules Coleman, 8 Connecticut Hogan VKTR 19, 23 Regular/graphite Currently play FT Hi, 27, 31; FT 15, 36,40,44,48 Ping Answer 52,56,60 wedges Adams XTD Ti 20, 23 Srixon F45, 15 Cobra F6+/ Talamonti light (55g shaft) Only thing unsettled in my set is hybrids and deciding whether to go route of FTHi lower lofted irons or VKTR hybrids. In past year I have tried Adams, Srixon, Bridgestone, Callaway and TaylorMade Hybrids and what I would prefer would be hybrids that are replacements for comparable irons rather than an unstable cross between a shorter fairway wood and an iron that perf
  13. Jules Coleman NYC, CT 7.8 bag the FT15 now in a good position to compare
  14. Jules Coleman Index. 7.8 New York, New York I play the Hogan FT 15 right now and was actually thinking of replacing the 24, 28 and 32* irons with the FT 15 Hi precisely because of the claims about added forgiveness and launch. I think I therefore make a naturally good tester as I know well the feel and performance of the standard FT15 and can assess the relative improvements if any in forgiveness and launch angle the Hi make. In addition, my back-up set of irons includes some hollow long irons, so I can usefully compare the Hogan hollow design with the others I currently have. I am al
