I finally realized that the most important thing for me to work on - is hitting the ball from in to out. I believe 99% of guys who can't break 90 on a moderately difficult golf course are those who swing over the top. Let's be honest it is soooo difficult to compensate the out-to-in path!

On course strategy. Before a round I usually look at the course yardages and note my layup yardages with a GPS. I'll look at hole layouts on the internet, if available, and see how I want to play it. I also tell myself that layups are ok in order to avoid disaster. Then I get to the course...

And I feel like I rush. I forget the strategy that I came up with before. It doesn't matter if my drive goes wayward or I miss-hit a shot, I just seem to lose my thinking on the course. I need to work on that big time. And as usual, putting. Today I left 2 birdie putts 2-3 rolls short and I 3-putt more than I want to because I leave my initial putts well short. Really irritating and easy strokes to pick up.

Getting my back healed so I can work on stuff again...

Everytime it gets close to healing I go to the driving range or do something stupid. I hate backs I wish I could just be legs, arms, and a head.

Establishing a consistent, efficient and quick set-up routine to the ball.

Releasing the club correctly while concentrating on a little supination of the left wrist and having the right wrist bent back a tad (Like the picture of Hogan on his Five Lessons book)

Making golf swings on the golf course instead of hitting at the ball. I'll do my best to follow the principles discussed in "The Natural Golf Swing" by George Knudson and "Extaordinary Golf" by Fred Shoemaker.

I'm working on my driver. Specifically getting the shaft on the right plane on the takeaway and downswing. I have a horrible habit of bringing the club back way too high and bringing it through the zone from the outside and over the top. I've had to literally go quarter speed at my lessons and the range to try and build muscle memory. ;)

I think for a right handed person playing righty (most of us) flexibility in the right hand is an issue. To make that funky clockwise rotation and put the right hand in that "waiter holding a tray" position and not cross the line,,, is not easy and requires not only flexibility but hand strenght. I know when I'm lazy and cross the line and don't put my right hand in the proper position I feel no stess..however when I have the club on plane I feel tension in my left thumb, left and right wrist almost to the point of being uncomfortable.

I'm working on sucking less. I stank today. Really discouraging practice session. Stupid left arm! Stupid wrists! Stupid attachment! Gahhhh!

Going to go work out to alleviate some frustration, then hit the pub for a few rounds of ale therapy.

Apparently I have been leaning forward on my downswing, so I'm focusing on being more upright. I think this may have something to do with not being able to consistently hit my driver off the tee. I usually clip the underside of the ball...

    • Broadcast going from tape delayed to live. Who moves the needle? Who?  
    • I think you are both right to some degree.  We've had a ton of discussion around this house about it. For obvious reasons.  For the gentleman who died. He said it himself. It was his choice. Would he have made a different choice had he know the outcome? Of course he would have. Only a fool wouldn't. I can understand not feeling sorry for him. Personally, I feel sorry for him. He was misinformed. He put his trust in the wrong somebody and made a mistake that cost him his life.  I, however, REALLY feel bad for the grandkids. They are school age kids, but too young to be vaccinated just yet. They may wonder for the rest of their lives. "Geez, if I hadn't hugged grandpa, would he have lived?" ..."If we had just waited a couple weeks until the kids' vaccine was available?"  The point I am really trying to get across is when somebody says "It's my choice. I'm only hurting myself if I'm wrong." That's bullshit! Those grandkids may wonder for ever if they could have done something differently. His daughter will wonder "If I had told dad he can't come see the grandkids until he's vaccinated, would he still be here?"  Everyone he left behind has to deal with thoughts of whether or not THEY did something wrong. Just because HE chose to listen to Facebook instead of his doctor. So, yes, it's his choice. But he's not only hurting himself even if he's the only one who had to go to the hospital. Even if he's the only one who dies. That's a rotten legacy of guilt to leave your family. 
    • TIL: Well, at least from someone who knows hockey, what he told me. That defense and goalies have gotten better so an uptick in deflection scores. That pickup the puck off the ice move looks pretty hard. Especially to do it that quickly under the time pressure of a game. Kind of reminds me of juggling a golf ball, but that skill doesn't help much with scoring in golf whereas in hockey, it did here. I don't watch hockey and don't know it as well as other sports, but this looks like it was quite something.  
    • That's why I said I know it's harsh. My point was essentially a philosophical one. People change their minds about war when they have had first hand experience of it. It has to be personal for some people. Some people can only understand domestic abuse when it affects them personally. Some people can only understand genocide when they have a family connection. People decide to get vaccinated when they think "Shit... x died. I'm getting vaccinated." I get you....I'm making a point in a way that can make me look bad. But I do think the point is valid. Which is why I phrased it the way I did. And..... I accept your criticism. It is not unfair.  
    • He might play Bay Hill at some point… but even that's unlikely, I think. Three majors (not the U.S. Open?). Maybe Riviera (pretty flat, benefits TWF). Those are the tier 1 tournaments, I think. Maybe the Players, since he can bunt it around and putt and it's a flat site, and it pays out a good bit too. I think he'll play six events a year.
