Of course!  You and I also have a mutual buddy - Joe C. out in Syracuse.  
Might be fun to try and get us all together.

Good luck in your events; keep us posted here!

Mohawk river country club.

Nice. Haven't been there yet. Even with Hiland being my home course. I will be playing in the annual ARC tourney at Saratoga National in May. I can't wait!

Airway meadows is opening their front 9 to walkers tomorrow. Stadium is open. Mohawk river is open and evergreen is open as well. The rest should be opening over the next week or 2

I think airway is letting carts out now. Chances are high that I'll be going somewhere this Monday & Tuesday!

On another note. Any idea of how well the guys at exit 8 are at bending clubs? I might want to bend my wedges 2* stronger. Haven't heard any feedback on how they are there with bending clubs.

I've had clubs adjusted there while I wait. Mark is who I usually have do my work and they charge $5/club to bend unless you purchased the clubs through them. He tends to do a pretty good job in my opinion

I've got a few rounds in on the year now. started out very sketchy.. mid to high 80's and got pretty worried things were way off.  I found something off the tee and have been playing MUCH better since then. I shot 73 in a NYSGA Amateur series event at Leatherstocking Golf course in Cooperstown to win by 5 shots (yes, baseball hall of fame cooperstown) had a couple good rounds since then. shot 37 for 9 holes at a course i was unfamiliar with (par 36) from the tips and its a 7100 yard layout. Then yesterday played a local course from the tips (6951yds) shot +2 on the front and had a few balls get lost on the back 9. wet sloppy conditions and balls were going subterranean when landing and getting lost. ended up shooting a smooth 80. found that the Tensei pro white 90Tx i had in my 818h2 is NOT the right shaft for me. last year i was hitting my 816h2 with speeder 8.8x 225-230 carry... with the Tensei im lucky to carry it 210. Tensei going bye bye, speeder on its way back in the bag.  A couple memorable shots from yesterday.. 7th hole, 352 yards. hit 3w off the tee and tugged it left, hit a tree and dropped. 135 yards to a back pin.. made the mistake and went long over the back in 2. attempted a high flop onto the green and went right under it.. now hitting 4... perfect high flop but thought i hit it way too hard... lands in the hole on the fly from about 10 yards over the green for par..... then the tee shot on 10. hole is 392 straight away. pounded driver nice tight high baby draw .. get up to the fairway and cvant find the ball... look around and it plugged deep. pull the ball out, then laser the pin... 101 left to the flag. 291 yard carry... ill take that all day long, just wish i got some roll out after that haha. 28 putts on the day. a good showing for me with the flatstick.

I love Leatherstocking golf course.  That and Sagamore outside Lake George are my favorite courses in the entire Nation!  It's about the only thing I miss about my home state.

Nice T!! Congrats on the W!

Not surprised the stock Tensei White hybrid is not working out for you. I'd guess you'd definitely fall more into the tour issue Tensei White hybrid shaft with your ss (if you were to try the Tensei line at least). Supposedly it's built with the same makeup/materials as the driver shaft but in the hybrid model (Tollbros has a great thread on it, and only comes in TX I believe?),  sounds like the stock shaft is a bit watered down vs the driver shaft makeup and made more for stock OEM offerings.

Have you hit 818H2 with older shaft yet? I see it's listed in your signature.

Hope al is well!

I just think the Tensei white profile in general is not for me. The Speeder 8.8x is en route to me. Should hopefully have it here and in the hybrid Wednesday or Thursday.  Saratoga County Amateur tournament is 6/1 & 6/2. ill be sure to give it a good workout prior to the tournament. Looking at playing 36 holes this Sunday assuming nice weather. 18 in the morning at Airway Meadows and 18 in the afternoon at Kingsbury National.

How is saratoga national? Only played the spa course in my 10 years in the capital region. Stadium is good for practice, and is always dry, but with all the trees they've removed I've been looking for a longer/tighter course

It honestly depends on the time of year you play it and how much you want to pay. Im sure mid summer its fantastic but i cant bring myself to pay the $195 per round fees. If you get an early season voucher and play National for $65, its a great course. Stadium is one of, if not my least favorite course in the area. Schenectady Muni, Eagle Crest, Van Patten, Saratoga Spa, Saratoga Lake (although the lake course has been known to have some of the slowest greens anywhere) Airway Meadows, Kingsbury National are all better options than Stadium.  If you want narrow, Capital Hills in Albany may work for you, but I hated that course as well. The Sagamore, is also fantastic if you can get in that up in lake george.

Not to take the thread too far off on a tangent:
I'm probably biased as it's my home course, but I don't think there's a track in the Capital Region that's as enjoyable to play as Saratoga National- when it's playing firm and fast as designed, and when played from the proper tees for your skill level. Play it too short and it's not going to properly test your whole bag, and play it too long and it's a grind.  
What often happens in the spring is that conditions are soft, and the fescue hasn't come in yet along the fairways and around the sides and tops of the bunkers so you can get away with playing much more aggressively than you can when those margins narrow and the greens start running true and fast.  That's basically just starting to happen now - greens have firmed up a lot in the past 10 days or so and you have to be a lot more strategic about what angles to take off the tee and into the greens.  
There's still a couple of weeks to take advantage of the voucher spring rate that's around $100 during the week and afternoon on the weekends.  Last year we got a new touch-screen GPS system in the carts that is light years ahead of anything else in our area, and they're currently doing a huge expansion of our range and short game practice area that will be fully functional in a month or two.

What's up T,

Any chance you and Togatown want to meet and play a course somewhere? I don't care where, here, there, or in between?

How is Hiland not this list of courses? It's my home course. Used to be a member at Kingsbury for years when was known  Kingswood. Hiland is a much better course, playing conditions as well as being a tougher course.

Love eagles crest, even Cronins has become a gem. Airway the back 9 is tight, but catch it in the late season & the greens are SLOW.

I love Leatherstocking golf course.  That and Sagamore outside Lake George are my favorite courses in the entire Nation!  It's about the only thing I miss about my home state.

The view on #1 tee box is damn near heaven at Sagamore. Love that course.

It's my lock screen on my cell phone.  A pic I took the last time I played there, which btw isn't as often as I'd like.  Only once every other year since I don't live up there.

Ive had a few tournaments of late. Played the saratoga county amateur this past weekend, shot 84 on day 1 at eagle crest from the tips and moved to saratoga national for day 2. Shot 83 at national with a (gulp) 10 on the scorecard on hole 13. Birdied 14 then par'd the rest of the way in. Hit driver from blue tees on 18. Cart GPS said 330yards off the tee and had 91 to the stick for my 2nd. Have the Edison open this saturday, then NYSGA tournament #3 on 6/12 @ En-Joie in Endicott,NY. (Home of the Dick's Sporting goods open on the champio s tour) havent played a "fun" round of golf in a couple weeks. With my League every tuesday night and the constant tournaments and trying to maintain a relationship, its stretching time thin. After En-joie, i dont have any "planned" tournaments until 7/30 but i do intend to play Bethpage Black either 7/28 or 7/29.

Wow 83 with a 10? And to come back and finish the last holes at -1 is great way to battle back and not let the rest of the round go to hell.

I'm definitely jealous of all the tournaments your getting to play in. Up here there's only 1 tournament I play in and that was the 3rd week of May (2 day stroke event). Hopefully I'll be able to play in another one in July. Good luck at Bethpage Black. Have you played it before, and if so from the tips?
