Not sure who has made hotel reservations yet, but @iacas and I will be staying at the Hampton Inn Richmond Airport on Saturday night.

It's 24 minutes from the course.

Also, we set our clocks back that night. So everyone gets an extra hour of sleep! So, trust but verify that your alarms will go off at the right time.

I haven’t, yet. I’ll do it later.

I'm working in Richmond all week, just a coincidence.  I'm going to come home friday, play with Bill on saturday, and drive back down.  I'm staying at a Marriott Courtyard, I think it's just around the corner from the Hampton inn.

My wife and I will be staying there also. She will be sightseeing at Colonial Williamsburg while the rest of us are golfing.

Have her visit Merchant's Square near Willam and Mary.

Her plan is to park about a block south of there, and yes, shopping will be involved.

Have fun, wish I was there hanging out with you all.  I hope the course is better maintained now then when I last and only time I played there.

They put $2M into it before it reopened last year so I’m expecting it will be. 🙂

Yes, rain can do it's thing on if leading up to days of soaking on any course but outside of that  I have two friends that played here in September who said it is phenomenal shape. 

I have played here quite a bit in the last few years and couldn't be more excited to go back after the reno.👍

I played there in August and it was in good shape.  Really liked the course. 

If you're staying in Richmond, some of the best IPAs you can find outside of New England at The Veil.

Here's my first (final?) stab at groupings:

Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:00:

  1. @iacas
  2. @Slim_Pivot
  3. @Divot Master

Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:10:

  1. @Hardspoon
  2. @Hardspoon's genetic near-equivalent
  3. @saevel25

Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:00:

  1. @DaveP043
  2. @DaveP043's better half
  3. @saevel25
  4. @Divot Master

Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:10

  1. @iacas
  2. @woodzie264
  3. @Hardspoon
  4. @billchao

Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:20

  1. @GolfLug
  2. Wife of @GolfLug (non-playing)
  3. @davechen
  4. Offspring of @davechen

I've invited a guest, but he's unlikely to be able to play. However, if he's able to play, then CBS and FOX are going to flex @billchao to the 9:20 group. This is also true if the non-playing person (wife of @GolfLug) opts not to see the sights.

    • Two that I've seen that others haven't mentioned yet: Having someone line up a putt, and as they're getting ready to putt it, giving the putt to them (this is dumb, but I've seen it). Someone I played with once asked me if I was stopping my backswing early. Just because your backswing is way too long doesn't mean I'm stopping mine early. It wasn't really gamesmanship, but I could see someone trying something like that. Maybe this is just me, but that wouldn't bother me at all. I'd happily take the free swing. I'm probably too used to hitting provisionals though...
    • My current set of wedges include PW, 50, 54 and 58. I’ve got two sets of irons I play, Titleist 716 CB and Mizuno MP59. My Titleist 716 CB PW is 47 degrees and my Mizuno MP 59 is 46. I’ve got Project X LZ 5.5 shafts in both set of irons, which I really like. My Wedges are Edel and have the KBS Hi Rev shafts in them. I got them used. My wedges tend to balloon a bit with partial shots. I usually do only 3/4 and 1/2 shots with my wedges. Even my 9 iron can balloon a bit with full shots. I’m wondering if the Hi Rev shafts should be replaced with a lower launching shaft. I want to do a wedge fitting at some point, but the ‘Rona kind of prevented that this year.  I can do some experimenting over the winter, which I like to do. I was thinking of either the Project X LZ 5.5 or 6.0 in the wedges but wanted to see what others thought. @Adam C, @Piz, @iacas. Thoughts?
    • I don't think so. I think the Halo only saved his life, it didn't make the accident worse. He hit the guard rail at 137 MPH and experienced ~53G force.
    • Question for you guys.... I noticed both yesterday and today, that both mornings, my strain score has been 0.0.  Still is for today right now.  My mornings are always light working from home.  I woke up, walked my kids to school (less than half mile round trip), and then sit in my home office the rest of the morning.  But I am moving around a bit, walking up and down stairs between the kitchen and basement and doing some light putting on my mat.  Just seems odd that the strain score is zero. Is this because I'm still in that initial 5 day window?  I see a few of you are at about 4.  Have you done much more than I have to this point in the day?
    • I've put in for two pre-orders. I'll have more to say later, but I will say right now it's not just a "little" more than a Mevo+/SkyTrak, it's twice as much. 🙂 Mevo+ gives you 16 parameters, but a few are the "flight time" variety.
