Team NH names Eric White Colony Cup Captain

With the Colony cup just 5 weeks away LFG NH has decided to name Eric White this years team Captain. We feel Eric is the leader that the team needs to keep everyone on the same page and on the path to achieve the same goal. Eric, who was last years Champion brings very little leadership skills to the table and will be guided through the process by LFG Veteran and Captain Mentor Chris Roussin. These 2 will put the team in good hands and we expect the chemistry to be through the roof this year as we look to continue our undefeated record vs Massachusetts. When asked how he felt to be named the team NH captain, Eric replied with “Fuck, yeah. About time” whatever that means…..This years Colony cup will be played the weekend of October 17th and 18th at Crosswinds CC in Plymouth, Ma.

Rory Mcilroys shot here should make us all feel a little better about ourselves

I would have done this 9 times out of 10 here but it is always shocking to see a pro do this. We probably see a shank or a chunk once a month or so from a tour pro but this is one of the worst I have seen. He ended up putting the next one on the green and 2 putted for double. Go have a day today Rory.

Corey Hayes cruises to victory in playoff event #1 at Loudon CC

In very tough conditions yesterday at Loudon CC, Corey hayes was able to sneak out a win. Corey shot a 98/75 on his way to victory. The +3 is the highest score LFG has seen as a winning score. The conditions played difficult for all today, but with a strong left to right wind on many holes, Hayes, a lefty was able to hit a baby cut up against the wind most the day to keep himself in play.

When asked how he felt out there today and what led him to his victory, hayes babbled on that “This league is great and the number one reason is the people we get paired with. It genuinely shows that the three other people in the group want you to do well. It’s a Sunday out with friends, even when it is the first time playing a round with them”

Kind words, that did not answer the question asked, Either way Congrats on now your 2nd win in the past 3 events. Now is the perfect time to get hot.

We had 5 players who were all within 1 stroke of Hayes and are kicking themselves right now about where they could have made that stroke up. Still good rounds though none the less to Josh Klein, Dwayne Davis, Chris Hatem, Pat Blair and Joe Forbush.

LFG Golf Etiquette

Just want to get a quick blog out here to discuss some issues we occasionally run into during some our events and the proper etiquette to handle these issues. This, kind goes beyond just the regular golf etiquette although there are still a few things we can be better at.

We have been getting many new players, and some of those are players who are new to golf and playing a little more serious for their first time. Although, not all players are open to advice on their swing. We can always help new players with etiquette advice, whether it’s walking in someones line, letting the furthest player play first, proper areas to drive the cart and rest of some of golfs “unwritten rules”

Also, as we acquire new players some will have a vast of golf knowledge well others may not, Please don’t criticize the rules. We always go over them at the end of the year on what we can do to make things better and give the golfers the most enjoyable experience while for the most part trying to simplify the rules as much as we can. Most groups will have someone who has been in the league for several years and please ask them for the correct rulings.

If your ball goes into the woods, and you are a walker or sole rider. Wait for someone or ask for someone to come check for your ball with you. There is just an abnormal amount of times that balls are found in the woods with pretty good lies and through a line of trees that gives some players a clear shot. I know, it does occasionally happen but if you know you have to find a ball in the woods just use caution and do not be affraid to ask someone to come help.

*I know not all of us mark our golfballs, but if possible to mark them going forward it would be helpful, also indicating what kind of ball you are playing if one is hit into the woods.

A lot of times we play with individuals who we have not played with before. People do enjoy the occasional compliment for a good shot, or good putt. Some players who are playing well though do not want to continue to be reminded how well they are playing. Some just like to wait to the end of the round and see what that good score ended up being. Use the same rules as if a pitcher was throwing a No hitter. Just stay away and let them stay focused on their game. Congratulate them with a beer after the round.

This goes without saying, but when people are shooting, you should not be talking during their shot.

We have some players who are smokers, others who are not. If you are going to share a cart with someone who is not, Be as respectful as you can, check with them first and if possible just smoke when your out of the cart or maybe walk to one of your shots while you smoke.

My main advice is that when you are new to our league, just be smart and use some common sense when playing with new players. No one wants to be the guy that people do not want to play with so don’t be that guy. If you are respectful, talk about common interest that everyone can chat about, and don’t question too many rulings and do noty let your play affect others too much, odds are you will fit in just fine.

We have a great core to this league and continue to add on to it with a lot of awesome people. If there are consistent complaints about the same individual we will just ask you to leave. It has happened in the past and we do our best to make sure that all our players are enjoying themselves.

We are incredibly excited to welcome Maine to Live Free Golf

Well we did it, we added another state and with that so many more beautiful courses to offer up to our members. Maine which is one the most amazing golf states in the country will be ran by Jordan Yanni who currently owns FN3P (Effin 3 putts) which is a great lifestyle brand you can find around here, of something this league sees way too often. Jordan who is already in the industry can bring some knowledge and a great option for the players of the Pine Tree State that they haven’t had. We love being able to grow our network and give our players the opportunity to play courses they may have never played.

The initial plan for Maine is that they will be playing a fall event at the Ledges in late Sept or Early October to get things kicked off this year with a possibility of a 2nd event and will have a full schedule in 2021. If you know anyone in Maine who may golf, feel free to add them to our page and spread the word. #LFG

Also, feel free to check out Jordans site and help support his brand.
