The one thing we know for sure is that he drinks at least some soda.

Golf Digest piece on unassailable truths. I'm pretty sure it's when a group lets you play through. Here's an unassailable truth. When you rush to publish and depend on grammar and spell checkers, you're going to make a mistake.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I hate people saying "Pacific" rather than "Specific", and I hate a word that was imported from the USA which is "Overly".

"Moving forward" is a euphemism for "umm...".  Back in the day; the first two letters in the English alphabet were A, and umm, B.  These days the letters are A, and moving forward, B.  We could, perhaps, agree to abbreviate the term...then again maybe not.

In der bag:
Cleveland Hi-Bore driver, Maltby 5 wood, Maltby hybrid, Maltby irons and wedges (23 to 50) Vokey 59/07, Cleveland Niblick (LH-42), and a Maltby mallet putter.                                                                                                                                                 "When the going gets tough...it's tough to get going."

Well, it's actually something people use in place of "in the future" or "from now on" but I kind of agree that I don't care for it much.  My wife uses it all the time. ;)

Kids maybe?  :-P  I used to say pasketti instead of spaghetti when I was, like, 5 ... and it seems like the same type of mistake.

Yeah, it's redundant.  I mean what's the alternative? "From here and into the past, we will ...":hmm:  

But I've probably said it, too. :8)

My nephew used to say "paslami" for pepperoni when he was little. I still use that one.

The book below  is a great read on the development of the English language. You would be surprised that many words the English attribute to Americans are actually older English words.

We did a bit of research online and maybe it doesn't make any difference and players do it because other players do it, but apparently it could be because it puts off your opponent (even if only subconsciously your brain uses some processing power to check the sound and make sure it isn't a sabre tooth tiger) but also there was some research that suggested that a grunt can help you hit a few percent faster.

I felt out of breath while reading this....

Ms. Volmer would have just put a red line through it and wrote, "try again"!

    • Day 7: 12/05/22 Woke up early. Got a workout in then I headed to the garage to work on my full swing.  Did Block work, but I did switch between 6 iron and 9 iron to add a little variability to it. I'm continuing to work on my priority pieces. I also started and finished by working on shortening my backswing and trying to get rid of a reoccurring problem with my late hip kick away from the target. That and hand path are the two things that continually come back and haunt me. Kind of like an old-school Columbia Record Club membership. Every time I think I've gotten rid of them... they come back again. 
    • I have several questions?  Is this an off-season plan or during the season? Not a ton of actual golf happens where I live from early November to Early March at least.  Where do you put the "getting instruction" part? Seems like there should be a part about "see instructor" or swing coach or what have you.  @cedrictheo Do you actually have 4 hours a day to practice? I wish I did. At best I could squeeze an hour per day. Some days more, but some days a lot less.  What about speed training? Granted I only do it in the off season and kind of every other year, but shouldn't that be included?  Any consideration about fitness? Either golf fitness or general fitness or stretching at least, maybe yoga, should any of that be included in the plan? 
    • I agree that the OWGR shouldn’t award points for finishing last. They may want to rework distribution in limited field events.
    • This section (IMO) should vary some depending on where you are in your current competitive season. In the off season with someone wanting to make some swing changes they could/should spend more than 30 minutes on technical block practice. Let's say 15 minutes were with irons and 15 minutes were with driver/woods. If you are practicing properly that's only ~30 ish swings with irons and ~30 ish with driver where you are working on technical things. (That's on the high side too, probably even less if you are filming every swing and reviewing the swings during the session) Now if you were in more of an in season maintenance mode with your swing then sure it might make sense to have more of the full swing time focused on the skills assessment portion, but if you wanted to make serious improvements in your swing mechanics IMO you should be spending more than 30 minutes out of a 4 hour practice session on full swing mechanics.
