Amanita sp. ID conformation required

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Amanita sp. ID conformation required

Another one new to me from the golf course. Pine trees everywhere. 6cm cap chocolate brown getting slightly lighter brown toward edge.
Patches of lighter brown 'scales'/veil fragments? on cap. Off white Gills look to be free of stem when it opens fully. 10cm x 2.5cm white hollow stem with pinky brown fibres from part way down to base of stem. Bulbous base. No staining when cut. cap does peel. No distinct smell other than mushroomy. Pretty sure it is Amanita sp. and leaning towards Amanita rubescens - The Blusher.
Maybe someone can confirm ID.
