Thanks for the interest and suggestions. I've found a place in San Diego that has coffee from around the world. It is located in the downtown area in Barrio Logan (Logan Heights). It is called Cafe Moto. They have a back room where all the machinery is kept and the coffee is ground on the premises.You watch from an observation area through a glass wall. You can buy it in small packages or up to 5 pound bags, whole bean or custom grind. They also sell just about everything imaginable in the way of grinders, french presses, mugs, coffee makers, utensils. Out on the streetside, is a very small retail type coffee shop. Its a neat experience visiting.
interesting analysis on fivethirtyeight.com about the impact of debates on polling and the eventual winner.
Debates are usually interesting because so much pressure is on the candidates to not screw up.
I don't really think about how fast the group in front of me 'should' play - I'm only concerned that they are keeping up with the next group (2some, single, 4 some - doesn't matter). It's an interesting take on it - but I don't think I'd want to do that, I don't want to play someone else's game and I'd like people to not try and play mine.
it worked out. glad you got through and could play at a pace more in line. I know slow pace can really affect my game. I usually try to find a course (I look at the signup) and try to find more empty courses just so I can play at a crispy pace. Else I have to find things to keep distracted between shots. which stinks
blue skies - you seem to sincerely really want to figure this out and not just get internet validation - I think that's cool
3 rounds this weekend. Including 2 on Sunday with courses I've never played before both gems. The second a last minute Hot Deal I walked in on.
Driving - I've been on fire. From Hole 16 last week through the first round on Saturday Plus 3 'bonus' holes on Friday (replayed a par 3 because it was slow and then went and played 10 and 11 again before the rain came in). I hit 31 Fairways (including pars 3 I count if on the green or very near....this is just so I can keep count in a lazy way). So unusual. Friday's game is the very first time I've hit 18 of 18. I think it payed off big. by the 2nd half of the first round on Sunday, I started missing left a lot - clearly getting tired or unfocused. You can see the FH hit stats just drop over the rounds (Gopher Hills I played back 9 first).
And I found about 5 dozen golf balls scrounging around.
This weekend was my 'zone' play, empty course, fast play and still able to go into the woods and scrounge. Both Sunday games I came away with most of the balls, and still played both rounds in under 3 hours. Fall play is great.
