40 minutes at the range. Entirely feel based day, with a ball. Never hit the ball with my 7-iron past 100yds. Focused on all the elements I've been working on, but no slow motion. Just athletic movements at slow speed. Tried to stay as alert as possible to the club shallowing (not a full backswing, but I would get that little "falling behind" feel as I started down). Worked on timing of the body, rather than the mechanical positions I've done for the past few weeks. It's starting to feel better, and I was making decent contact.
Weekend will be slow motion mirror work again. Video on Tuesday, I hope.
My biggest "issue" with golf is that it simply takes too long to play a round of golf. It's ~6 hours, door to door, to play 18 holes unless you play during a weekday. At least that's what you have to plan for, bonus if you're done faster, but in my experience even during the week there's at least a 25% chance you'll get stuck behind a few groups which means 4 hrs minimum for the round.
It's not slow play, the game just takes too long to play 18 holes unless you're good (single digit hcp or better) and because of the time commitment required to play very few people are any good at it. The 2.5hr "magical" solo round every once in a while when the course is empty makes a lot of people frustrated apparently (me included at times), but the fact is it takes a while for 4 people to each hit a golf ball 100+ times on a golf course.
If 10 holes was considered a round, I think you'd see a lot more people playing the sport.
Have to give this one to my playing partner this morning - 212Y Par 3, a green that neither of us have ever dropped on, a few low burners that have rolled onto the green. But today he took a 6 iron (he's a very big hitter), hit a perfect draw shot, and landed 6 feet past the hole. It wasn't even the distance he gets with that club, it was the shape of the shot that was so pretty.
