Woohoo, played 9 and for once, didn't hit one really awful shot, no earth digging fats, no bone shattering thins, no shanks, no OB drivers. Hit one juuuust off the heel and wound in the green side bunker a nGIR, not very right at all. Every iron went pretty much near where I wanted it to go and hit two controlled low trajectory escape shots which went exactly the height I wanted, 10 feet high and 100, 175 yards. Still shot a 43, a snowman because of a green side bunker shot caught too cleanly because wet packed sand into a bunch of leaves killed me, but that's the short game and doesn't bother me as much. If I had my regular season short game, could have broken 40. Someone mistook my Aimpoint Express finger procedure for Vector putting. Cold-ish weather didn't effect distance much either.

Lesson, more work on no Havercamp on the backswing. Really feels like I'm stretching to the sky and wound up. Feels are sway hips back while left shoulder to ball.

Bought the changes to the course, shot 44 short game rusty, driver was good, much more controlled, pretty much all nGIRs, focused on the one thought, feel that stretch at 4. Getting same distance feeling like less effort although that stretch at 4 takes energy out of me more when at the range. Don't like the chicken wing at 8-9 but will focus on that later, want to make new feeling at 4 automagic.

Quit your job and play everyday and in four months you’d be a 9 😃

You've been away too long @JetFan1983. If @nevets88 quit his job, in four months he might only get two rounds of golf in. Because winter 😜

Last evolvr lesson - get right elbow more in front of body on downswing. This is a 7I @ super slow tempo, probably went 75 yards, but the feel is totally different. Even though it's not a full tempo swing, I feel progressively swinging faster while keeping the same feels is the way to go. I call this the " love tap " drill.

 

Even though that's probably my best P6 position and I know it's supposed to be a powerful position, it doesn't. Maybe when I up the speed a little more.

That looks like a fantastic drill...I've never seen that one before. I have to try that one.

Still getting used to new feel at 4.

 

Looking good Steve. What feel are you using? The one I use is pushing  my right arm down against my left thumb at setup. Then I keep that feel to A4.

Thanks Scott. A lot more hip sway away from target from A1, chest extension from A3-A4, arms reaching for sky A3-A4, head towards target A3-A4. Feels like a lot more torque, stretched out more.

    • Most of my rounds are at 4,200 ft, at sea level that 3W is probably 15ish yards shorter.  I’m not as long as it sounds, unfortunately.  I would utilize the 3W on more than just 14 tee shots (2nd shot on par 5s, choke down for some 190-230 shots, hit some low punch shots). I’m certainly not saying you’re thinking about anything wrong (as far as your game and selection), I was hung up on the “terrible option” comment.  I really like my driver and hybrid as well, if this were a 6 club challenge I’d swap out the 3W for the driver and hybrid all day.  But alas, we only get 5 clubs.
    • The handicap season is over. You should have told him you can warm your balls with whatever you want 😜
    • On my home course I’d take driver, 3-hybrid, 7-iron, SW, and putter. Driver is debatable, because I only hit it 3-4 times per round, so I could probably bring a 3W and drop 3-hybrid and rearrange the irons/wedges (3W, 5-iron, 8-iron, SW, putter). But driver gives me the best chance to score well on the par-5 holes (longest is 505 yards), and I wouldn’t want to give that up, since these holes are where I make birdie most often. 
    • Say a prayer for our state: From M-Live: Michigan reported 15,385 new COVID-19 cases, about 7,693 a day, and 351 deaths on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Over the last seven days, Michigan reported an average of 7,203 new, reported cases and 108 new deaths. These are up from 5,980 new cases per day and 71 deaths a week ago. State data, last updated Friday, Dec. 3, shows 65.8% of residents 12 and older have received at least a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The state is now seeing the greatest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic. Previous highs were set in the spring of 2020.
    • Day 130: Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.
