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.

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
