  1. Eagle Springs is not something worth driving a long distance for, but it is absolutely a fun 9 holes of golf. Several greens with very fun slopes, including #1 and #4 (and I believe it is the par 3 7th?). The volcano green on #2 is obviously the claim to fame, and it is a fun and challenging hole to play. I would certainly recommend it as a worthwhile stop!
  2. Just picked up a set of Nippon Modus 125s (a shaft that I really enjoyed previously, but have recently been playing PX LZs and wanted to switch back) and am looking for a set of heads to toss on them, but I am very torn on which direction to go. In the meantime, my old faithful Adams MB2s are in the bag.... Looking for a little more long iron forgiveness and launch compared to the J40s without going too clunky and wide-soled, and these 3 (New Level 902, Hogan PTx Pro/Icon combos, and i210) seem to be the finalists. First off, should I expect any significant differences between the J40s and
  3. How did the pricing through Club Champion work out? Basically pay the same price as on Hogan's website, plus the MSRP of the shafts, plus build cost? I'm assuming it would basically be the same as with other brands, but wasn't positive given that it's basically one of very few places to be able to hit their clubs before purchase.
  4. If you feel that the Apex 19 are a compact head...stick with the Apex 19. If you care about the absolute distance that a numbered iron is carrying, and don't ignore that completely and instead focus on descent angle, spin, launch angle, dispersion, etc...stick with the Apex 19. If you fit into the Apex 19 over the Apex Pros...stick with the Apex 19. If you want to buy a set of irons because of looks...get Mizuno MP20 MBs ?
  5. Just get some Pro Dots and have them stripped! But don't try to do it with the standard Apex Pro heads...the cup face will not strip properly.
  6. You won’t be disappointed! That’s really about the perfect one day Bandon routine, and you will leave wishing you could just stay and play those two courses again...and then realize that there are three more full courses, plus an all world par 3. You will be back...?
  7. I guess that's not too surprising. I would absolutely expect they spin less and launch higher than a comparable Icon. Wonder if they would bend just the PTX Pros a degree weak?
  8. For those of you that went with the combo set, what other recent irons would you compare the PTx Pro long irons to in terms of performance (forgiveness, spin rate, etc)? I’ve seen plenty of photos and understand that the top line is a little thicker, but am interested in a set and trying to decide between a combo or straight Icons, but the extra forgiveness in the long irons sounds tempting and would likely allow me to play them thru the 4 iron (currently playing Adams MB2s with a new level 4995 HB in the 4 iron slot).
  9. Just preference? Because they allow them for disability...at least that’s my understanding.
  10. I have no real reason to be considering a new set of irons, but these Hogan PTx Pro's, now that there is a combo set available with the Icons in the scoring irons, have certainly caught my eye. I've read plenty of reviews and believe I have an idea, but wanted to see what current or recent models these would compare to in terms of ballflight, forgiveness, etc. I have certainly read plenty about the appearance, feel, etc., so I'm moreso looking for performance comparisons.
  11. Oh, and it would also be a less than ideal place to go for a group who's primary reason to go on a golf trip is cruise around on carts and get sloshed. If that's you, it also might be the wrong place (but it also might open your eyes to what a real golf trip could be!).
  12. The only thing I could anticipate being the reason that one would choose not to go to Bandon (aside from time and money) would be being an extremely fair weather golfer who knows that bad weather will ruin their day (and, if that is you, props for recognizing it...shame, still). Either that, or a desperate need to score well in order to have fun and enjoy a trip, without realizing that the courses at Bandon, aside from the miserably bad weather days (which are still a blast to play golf in), are extremely scoreable without feeling "easy." I've only been there twice, and watching the US Am on
  13. Have you been up to sand valley? They’re more tame than many of those, as well as Bandon greens on several of their courses, and I can think of a couple out on Pine Hills that are more severe. I thought the greens at Lac la Belle were what will undoubtedly become their greatest feature!
