I'm working on fitness and full swing accuracy. I believe these two go hand in hand. My short game and putting are relatively solid and I'm losing all my strokes to penalties and counter-productive

My current project is perfecting a power fade with all of my clubs from driver to wedges. I must say that the amount of misinformation on this shot is mind-boggling (from professional teachers on down

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...

    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
