I'd probably be up for meeting y'all at Outback that evening after your round at WW.

This sounds good to me.  If good for the others I just need a address so I go the the correct Outback location.

Just a heads up, but I am changing my status to tentative. Right now, I am battling a sinus infections (took a take-home COVID test, both results were negative). Also, I jacked up by back playing golf last week and it hasn't healed up. Unless both things clear up by Friday, I am going to bow out.

  • 8am to 9am - I get started with @StuM and @dennyjones.
  • 9am to 10am - I help out @Chris Brooks and @Carl3.
  • 10am to 10:45am - I help out @saevel25 and @ChetlovesMer.
  • 10:45 to 11:30am - Everyone practices, I cycle around helping out everyone, people take breaks.
  • 11:30 to 1:00pm - Short Game + Putting work, small break in the middle maybe. All together as a group, then separately a bit.

Just pasting that here again so I have it. That's a good full day, even if you're unable to attend @saevel25. FWIW I feel comfortable with the test results, so my only concern for you or me would be your back of course, but I also only speak for myself.

Thanks... I get a sinus infection like 2x a year. 

I have no idea why back is bothering me so much. Things usually get back to functional quickly. This is a nasty pinched nerve really low down (near the tailbone area). Its a strange area to have bothering me. I kind of wonder if the area was inflamed before golf, and golf just aggravated it more. With pinched nerves, it could go away suddenly. I might take some anti-inflammatories, though I do not like to.

Yea, with being vaccinated and doing the take-home test, I am really sure its not COVID.

I'm always skeptical about weather reports 2 days out but we may have a damp round on Friday.  As long as not a downpour our lightning I'll golf.   @dennyjones, @ChetlovesMer & @Chris Brooks be sure to be ready just in case.

I think you'll probably be fine.

    • Day 21 (22 May 24) - hit a few PW in the backyard….making some easy pitches, bump and runs…
    • Yeah I typically use it as a rough guideline to get the general direction of break and the amount.  I'd say about half of the time I don't even use my fingers, I just feel the slope to get the percentage and then pick my spot based on that. I've practiced it enough too especially inside 20 feet I'm usually pretty close even without my fingers. Part of it depends on how confident I am in the read with my feet. If I'm certain it's a 1% then I'll do the finger, but if I'm not exactly sure on the read then I won't use a finger and rely on a combination of feet and eyes. 
    • Little bit of practice today. Nothing major, just a bit of work on the clubhead at A4. Feel is the backswing is all shoulder turn while keeping the club in front of me.   Not working on anything in particular beyond that. Club was across the line pretty hard when I first started. Haven't kept up with the stuff I was doing earlier in the year. I honestly think I liked the swing from March better. Not going to worry about it now, since I'll have new stuff to work on soon. I actually meant to map out shot zones with my Mevo+ today because I feel like I've lost some of my distance control on the course but I forgot to charge it so it didn't happen. I worked on short game stuff, instead. Standard release 2 pitch to no particular distance. I apparently have no concept of how far the club goes back because I swore that was parallel, but it's clearly not. It's not even to parallel in the practice swing. A throwback to an old challenge: Messing around for fun:  
    • I would not think of aimpoint as being a "there's a right way to do this and a wrong way" on this aspect of it (you need to use % slope to have it tie to finger width though for example). If it's working for you, then have at it. I personally haven't 100% bought into the whole thing yet (although I am getting there). I use it to verify my sight read or if i'm struggling to figure out what it's going to do. That said I had a putt last week from about 25 feet on my last hole. I looked from behind and thought it looked like it was breaking about 2 feet. I tested it and got about 2% at the ball, 1.5% at a 1/3 of the way and 1% at 2/3 of the way, so I figured about 1.5% on average, which worked out to about 18" or so I think. I didn't quite trust it so I went with my original read (I often find aimpoint underestimates the break for me - I need to do more work on my calibration). It broke quite a bit early and then straightened up and actually at the end went a tiny bit back the other way. If I took all four measurements (3/3, 2/3, 1/3 and 0/3) and trusted it, I'd have probably ended up holing it.
    • Your fingers haven’t gone on the same part of the hole for about a decade though.
