A few pictures from Lawsonia yesterday that don’t do the place any justice:  

My kids like their souvenirs.

Thanks for the outstanding week!! Absolute dream golf trip.

How do you switch?

I use Google Earth program, so I got more options than searching google through the browser. I thought there use to be a way to switch images, but they might have gotten rid of that in the browser form of google maps.

Doesn’t look like much of a course from a Google Maps perspective.😜

Well at least we know the sand is a natural characteristic there. 😊 It is supposedly around 200’ deep in some spots.

I think you mentioned that the sand was different, what makes it tricky?

Be careful how deep you wiggle your feet into the sand...

I don’t know what sand they used for the bunkers near the greens. But if my memory serves me well, which is questionable, it is very soft and unforgiving.  I’ll also be using the putter as much as I can near the greens. My short game still sucks. Haha

This is often the best play where I've played on sand-based courses, like Scotland links or the Pinehurst area.

I have read that putter is a viable option even from 60 yards out at times.

Well at least for some people. Not me, though. I struggle to hit my putter 60 feet.

We got some rain last week, hopefully some here in the near future as well.

I have a few yardage books from over the years. I have SV but need to get the Mammoth one.

I have downloaded the pdfs. It's time I get myself used to working yardage books.

Good video to help plan for the Sandbox, what clubs you want to bring or how you want to approach it.

There MD and SV vlogs are great too. Thanks. I think I saw somewhere on the vid that they are UW college players.

Yeah I think UW Stout.  Which is near Eau Claire, not far from where we will be staying. 

I did an old man thing and bought a cart bag this morning, Ping Traverse with a built in cooler pocket. My stand bag does not have tie downs for the legs and it is always an issue on push carts.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
