Played Rock Spring Golf Club with @nevets88. Course was in decent shape, albeit a little soggy from last night's rain. Seth Raynor was the architect of the course, though I'm not well versed enough in golf architecture to really be able to pick out any details. All I know is it has a nice layout with some very interesting holes and green complexes. 

I played kind of meh. Nothing really to write about.

Your enjoyment of the courses may be increased if you do learn a little bit about them.

That thought did cross my mind and I enjoyed the course a lot from an architectural point of view already.

Putted great, hit driver well, struggled a lot with my 3 wood. Should have just kept pounding driver. Handicap is once again at an all time low!

Had a chance to play the Field Club yesterday. Couldn't squeeze out a win against my kid and my partner's kid in a high-low-total Nassau.

Then again, as a +1 playing with a 9, and against a pair of 1.4/2.5 handicappers… we probably didn't have much of a chance playing them without strokes. 🙂

If you click on the Game Golf round included by the icon to the left, it's not something I posted. I have no idea where it came from. LOL  I'd love to claim it was me, but alas...

I couldn't get the Game Golf site to work properly on my phone. When I arrived at the course and turned on the app, it never gave me the screens to select the course. All I could ever get was the notifications about how other people had posted scores.

Having just put new grips on my clubs, I'm going to reinstall the sensors and start over again.

Has anyone else had trouble getting their system to work?

Forgot to post my rounds in FL.

Played on the 16th with @Vinsk at his club. Bermuda rough kicked my ass and we kept losing balls in it. A couple of times we happened to find our shots by dumb luck and simply being right on top of the ball. They just finished renovating the course and you can tell it needed another week or two to grow out and get into good playing condition. The top dressed the greens - they were white from the sand. Felt weird grounding my putter on it because it slid every time.

Great course though, tough track even though it isn't long.

Played on the 19th with @Vinsk again and @David in FL at David's club after he called us out for being ratbastards. Good times were had by all involved. The rough wasn't as high there and I was able to play out of it like a normal person. We played as a fivesome and had a small game going on which we won. I played a bit better here but I couldn't buy a putt. Did have an eagle attempt, though. Can't think of the last time I had an eagle putt.

Played 27 holes today. It's actually the first time I've ever played 27 holes in the same day. Got a little worn down towards the end but I powered through it. The last 9 I feel taught me a lot about how to play golf. I was kind of fatigued and just found a way to get around the course. I think I found a "finesse" driver swing. I hit it a little flatter than my regular driver swing and I get a decent amount of roll from it, while being more in control with the start line.

I forgot to turn the unit off between rounds so it ended up posting as one continuous round. I might email GG about it, but not sure I care that much. If you break down the rounds, I shot 44-39 for 83 and 42.

I drove the ball pretty well today and focused on hitting more approach shots less than full. Kept having that issue where I had better contact hitting 3/4 approach shots and ended up hitting shots to my full swing distance. The control over my start line was great, though. I'll adjust to the appropriate distances with time.

I liked the feel of the shorter swing leading to better contact and trajectory that when faced with an approach on the 5th hole during my second time through from basically the same spot that I hit from the first time, I decided to hit a chippy half swing PW instead of a 3/4 GW (that I chunked the first time through) and hit it to 15' from 90 yards. I realized with the fairway wide open in front and a back pin position on a large green, I didn't need to hit the ball high in the air and take a risk on chunking it with a bigger swing. It was a very good golf shot . This is kind of what I meant by learning to play golf - I hit the ball on the green towards the hole and I wasn't just trying to "make a swing".

My short game wasn't quite all there today but my putting was lights-out. Distance control was good and I made more than my share of 4-6' putts. Even made a couple of 15 footers. GG has it at basically scratch level (0.33 strokes).

Oh and I got hit by a golf ball today, on the 7th tee the second time around. I was standing there waiting for the green to clear and I heard rustling in the leaves around me, though it was a walnut falling, then something bounced on the ground and grazed my leg. Right after that I hit probably the purest 7i of of my life. Totally worth playing 9 more holes just to have experienced that shot 😎

Short game saved the day today. Started off striking the ball well and somewhere in the middle of the round my shot shaped changed directions on me. Putting was so-so.

I'm starting to get creative in hitting different shots on the course and not only is it a whole lot of fun, but I'm learning better shot options for different situations than the ones I'd normally take.

Three bad holes, but pretty decent golf otherwise for such a long course. My putting has been amazing for the last month or so, and pretty good all year really. What was once a glaring weakness became my greatest strength this season.

There was a lot of ugly in this round. I don't feel like I drove the ball that well but Game Golf says my driving was about a 10 handicap. Put my ball in some fescue a couple of times off the tee and hit both into water. Greenside short game failed me today (WTF happened to my bunker play?!?) but my partial swing game was on point. Putting was still pretty good. Managed to hole out a couple of long putts, including one from the fringe for par. Did manage to hit a couple of good hybrid shots and a 3 wood shot so that's a positive.

Didn't play that well but I didn't lose any balls so the score was better than yesterday. Long game wasn't there today, but short game was on point. Hit well out of both bunkers today after I made the conscious decision to keep the clubface more square at setup since I'm pretty good at using the bounce in my pitching motion. Putting was mediocre (but 29 putts means I putt great, right? 🙃). Did have a tap-in birdie, those are always cool.

98 with 44 putts... gamegolf says I lose only 6 shots vs a 10 hcp on full swing shots and 13 on short game and putting. I guess that mirrors what I’ve been drilling the last 2 years.

First round in almost a month. A few interesting holes mixed in there, but overall played pretty darn well. Caught a 90 yard 3/4 sand wedge thin on #3 and it cost me, hit it over the green into a tree and couldn't get it back to the green. Other than that I was able to recover from all the other iffy shots I hit.

Very windy round. The course was soft from three days of rain and they hadn't been out to mow, so the rough was gnarly and the greens were slow. Hit some shots really well and some really poor shots. Short game around the greens was good, but 40-100 yards out was terrible. Putting speed was an issue because the greens were slow, but I hit my lines well. Really pleased with how I played today overall.

    • Posers gonna pose. Who cares?.....It doesn't matter? Why?.....I don't think these players are cheating....some people just have bad days.....though when I see a + cap post two scores in the 90's in an event...I gotta laugh a bit...one bad day...ya things happen....back to back scores in the 90's???....assuming other scores aren't really high in their flight....then they had brutal conditions to play in. There are far more vanity capper than sandbag caps....vanity cappers are harmless and only hurt themselves in events or gambling. Tournaments need not care.....they want to collect the entry fees. I do know some legit young competitive Ams here not post all their rds played (likely what they might call practice/casual rds)....they generally only enter competitive event results....likely to showcase their caps when they are applying for scholarships and/or entry into high level Am events.
    • Ugh, we caught a guy pulling that shit in a tournament once. He didn't get invited back. 
    • 🤣 probably should have been "descent". But it doesn't really matter. It's all just a big string of BS anyway.
    • Added #12 to the composite page. I tried to cut the corner of the dogleg left, but caught the lip of the bunker, which slowed the ball down and left it on the downslope past the bunker, so I had a really low shot that bounced on and settled about 6 feet from the pin and then made the putt. I nearly also added #15, a 175yd par 3, the ball was tracking the flag but came up 15 feet short, and the putt came up 4 inches short.  I only need #14 and #15 on the composite sheet: the home course is another story (still 10 holes needed).
    • Played my first 18 holes since late 2014 today.  I shot a 106 (66.2 / 117), which I was really surprised by.  I actually shot better on the back 9, which is the opposite of what I used to do.  I used to play 9 holes almost exclusively and stretching it to 18 seemed to just fatigue me and it showed on the scorecard.  My son (12) and I had a great time.  I scored 2 pars, should of had another 1-2.  There were so many stupid strokes on the card.  6 penalties, 2 3-putts, 2 times I took 2 strokes in the same bunker, on top of your normal duff/skull from a weekend warrior.  It makes me feel really good, because through all of that it felt like I was on track for 120, not 106.  It tells me I'm not that far away from the mid 90s again.  When I played a lot (2-3 9s a week about 6-8 years ago) I'd normally shoot between 42 and 45 like clockwork.  Granted this new course is slightly tougher with tighter fairways, I feel like I'll be back to a place where I'm shooting respectable scores. Where I'm struggling most, like I was in 2012-2014, is distance.  I simply don't hit the ball that far.  It makes playing even somewhat forward tees (3rd set from the back) really tough.  I tracked a few of my better drives (3w, I have no control over the 1w) and on a great shot I was only getting 200-210 out of it.  My 5i is about 155 and my 7i is about 135.  A 375 yard par 4 is common and nearly impossible for me to reach in 2.  If I actually wanted to go for it, I'd need to pull a 4h for my second shot.  That's just not good for me, so I'll hit 3w, AW, AW, to give me an opportunity for a 1-putt par or more likely a 2-putt bogey.  A 350 yard par 4 will at least let me go 3w, 5i.  So yes, I'm dealing with that.  I need to figure out where to get 10 yards throughout the bag, or learn how to hit a 1w with some confidence.  I'm sure newer technology would help, but my clubs (Taylormade Burner 2.0) aren't that old.  I have noticed that newer sets have a 7i loft where my 5i is.  That makes me wonder, is it as hard to hit that new 5i as it is for me to hit my current 3i (as they'd have the same loft)?
