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.

    • The problem is not hitting different types of shots or adjusting.  The problem is conditions can vary from one foot to the next.  In the situation I was, it would well have been possible that the condition of the sand where the ball was and your feet were would be completely different.  It makes judging what you are going to do nigh on impossible. I am OK with people hitting different shots from the same situation.  That is what makes golf great. I am also OK with challenges. What I have a problem with is conditions being bad due to insufficient maintenance.  I would rather have a course with other alternatives, even if it is a hazard, than an area that is supposed to be playable, but isn't.  To give you an example, my home course is built on a paddy field.  We still get land crabs digging holes on the course.  The understandable decision, a local one, has been made to offer relief from the crab holes on the course
    • I hate it if random strangers ask me if they can join. I always lose my composure. I said "no" a few times and explained why, but they always give  me glimpse like I murdered their first born.   I played a 109 today. For some of you outrageously high, for me a very good round. 😎 Played better than my provisional handicap.
    • Now that my season is done, I would like to reflect. My driving Fairway Hit % in the beginning of the year was less than 40%, to end the year it was 63.5%. My target goal was 65%, and if you remove the drives before I got my new driver it moves up to 66.4%, but that is cheating myself. I need to improve this stat. My average GIR was 7.8. This is bad, I really need to improve this. However, my best rounds of the year were all over 12 GIR, which shows that when I’m on my game, I’m hitting greens.  My Average score on par 3’s was 4.186. I really need to improve my par 3 play. My average par 5 score was 5.546. I’m not mad about this, but considering my length off the tee and with irons, I would want this to be at or under 5. My average par 4 score was 4.915 This is just abysmal. I shouldn’t be averaging nearly a bogey on par 4’s.  My average score in tournaments was an 89. 75. My average score out of tournaments was an 80.66. My goal for tournaments was 85 or better and my goal outside tournaments was under 80. I hit neither. These are the only stats I keep at the moment. I had a few rounds in the 90’s and 2 rounds over 100. The 90+ and 100+ scores were all in tournaments, save for one round of 91 I shot on my schools course. All in all, my short game improved a ton, my  iron ply improved a ton, my driving was the biggest overhaul, and my mid range wedges gained a fair amount of accuracy and consistency. I don’t feel I’m far off of being in the 70’s or better. I typically give myself plenty of birdie attempts, and I can recover well. 
    • Last day of the year for golf. Ended it kind of sadly.  Long story short, I was 2 over through 15, had about 5 birdie putts that I missed, made 2 birdies, had about 4 insane recovery chips that I still don’t understand how I pulled off, and 4 bogeys that honestly shouldn’t have happened. 2 were 3 putts from on the green, one was trying a stupid hero shot and drilling a tree, and the last one was a flubbed chip.  16 Tee I wildly miss the fairway with my fairway wood. It stings extra bad missing the fairway when you try to lay up, so I let it get in my head and decided to try yet another hero shot, drilled a tree and back into the fairway. Gun the yardage, 154 about an extra 10 uphill, so about 164. Torn between an 8 and a 7. My 8 goes about 164 max in the warm if I really up my tempo, and my 7 typically carries 178 in the warm, so I decided to play it safe and grip down on a 7 iron and flight the ball higher in the air so it carries shorter and stops better. Proceed to fly the green by about 10 yards because I absolutely poured the ball. Lose the ball in long grass behind green, return to previous shot, penalize myself for losing a ball and grab an 8 iron, then proceed to come up well short. You can see where I’m going with this. Finish with an 8. Now 6 over through 16, Finish 3 putt double bogey, and then par to shoot 80.  Oh well, shit happens sometimes. Up until that point I was playing well. 11 GIR is a pretty good stat, but 11 GIR and only 7 being par or better is not good.   Edit: looked at scorecard and realized i actually shot double bogey, then par to finish. Kind of stings worse.
