A steeper angle of attack most often results in less dynamic loft as well. The result of that is less spin as compared to a shallow angle of attack with more dynamic loft.    Spin is determined by spin loft(the difference between AoA and dynamic loft). There's lots of reading out there about this if you Google "trackman laws", "trackman ball flight", etc.   Here's one link I found real quick.  http://nccga.org/the-science-of-spin-angle-of-attack/   There's plenty of...
 I'll probably have to go with public transport (or with you) then, I'm not to keen on driving on the left side of the road my first time in the middle of Dublin.  I will continue to keep you posted. Cheers.
Hopefulhacker, we are looking at renting an apartment for a few days while we are in Dublin. It's in the city center which will be great for visiting shops and pubs. We won't have a car while in Dublin. I haven't decided whether I'm going to play Portmarnock, The Island or Corballis yet(maybe even two of them). I see there's public transit available but I'm thinking I might be better off hitching a taxi to the course?
Those are gross generalizations. Steeper angles don't typically create more spin and spin doesn't neccesarily kill distance.
How far ahead of time do I need to book Lahinch and Ballybunion? A month? I assume I don't need to book real far ahead for the less prestigious courses. Is a week sufficient? We will be in Ireland from May 16-23rd.
Wow, thanks so much hopefulhacker, that's a huge help. I would certainly love to play a round with you and your friend. I will keep you posted. Cheers, Joel
Lahinch Old and Ballybunion Old are for sure on my list of courses I will play, but I'm having trouble picking 2-3 more. I'm thinking The Island near Dublin so I can get a round in while we spend 2-3 days in Dublin......I've heard Portmarnock Golf Club isn't all it's hyped up to be? I think I will play Dooks for sure since it looks like a great course and a great value. But I can't decide what other course(or two) to play on the southwest coast. Waterville, Tralee,...
That is definitely not right.   +2 AoA would be hitting up on the ball.
So do I fly with my clubs or ship them?    Opinions?   And if I fly with them, what hardcover travel bag do you guys recommend? Needs to hold a standard sized stand bag. 
Not really interested. Time not spent playing 18 holes is better spent seeing the towns/cities, historical things, etc. Just my opinion.
