I think patience qualifies as mental game.

Playing golf and babysitting my kids while trying to play golf are two different things.

Unless you’re saying I need to practice babysitting for when I meet up with you in Sand Valley?

More of the same stuff today. Hit it solidly. Extended the left knee earlier in these swings.

Finally got out to try my clubs on TM. Going to repost pictures from my TM session with my old clubs for easy comparison. PW: MP4 JPX910F 6i: MP4 JPX910

Thanks. And thank you for taking the time to work with me. The really hard work is the road ahead... You, too, John. I definitely needed five full days on the swing changes, but I also got

Sure, practice babysitting all you want but fair warning - you can't train/practice/prepare for what I will put through whoever will play a round with me at SV.  

Anyway, back to topic - you have a great swing!..😄

Note to self: firmer grip on short game shots. Something I figured out during my short game session at Chautauqua last year and apparently forgot.

Current state of swing - pretty good. Still working the same stuff, backswing slow and short with the weight left. Key element I need to add in is keeping the right elbow in front of me. I tend to pull it inside at the takeaway.

Current state of game - nonexistent. Literally. I can’t get a decent tee time anymore. I haven’t played in two weeks.

I went for a club fitting for a new 3W and hybrid last weekend. The fitter was honest with me and said he’d have trouble fitting my swing, so he comped the session and pointed me in the direction of Club Champion. I have that fitting on Saturday. He did suggest I look into a 4W 7W combo instead of what I play now which is 3W 2H.

Nice swing

Ditto.  Bill, you've got a scratch handicap swing but a sandbagger's index.  😄

That I can’t even play to. It’s a borderline vanity cap at this point.

Change in transition feel. Instead of right knee bend, it’s sit left. Pretty much as if I got up from a bar stool to my right and immediately wanted to sit back down on it again.

Went with this because I’m getting the right elbow behind me a little in transition and hitting blocks and pulls (no clubface control), and I’m tipping the club head under plane a bit. This move delays the hip rotation slightly so that my arms sync up better.

Out here in WA state I don't know that feeling anymore.  All the barstools have been hidden away for over a year...

I have stools in my kitchen. It’s how I came up with the description of how the move feels.

I think I’m onto something with this feel. I only hit two bad pulls all today (I hit another one but it was just a poor swing), but the biggest sign I’m on the right track is that I hit my 3W well each time I hit it. One resulted in a lost ball, but it turned out I was lined up right the whole time.

Didn’t hit any big draws that weren’t pulled, so the path was better.

    • The elephant in the room here  - and everyone knows it is as follows: Not all people of a particular political persuasion are against this and other vaccines. But all people who are against this and other vaccines are of that particular political persuasion. @David in FL is pretty obviously seen as a man of sage like wisdom amongst his friends at the pool hall who base their "opinions" on misrepresentations of reality and downright lies. ("Research") Problem is, when asked to defend his position he puts up straw man "arguments" where the goalposts keep shifting and he can always be seen as being prudent and sensible amongst the uneducated. So freaking what if lay people can't describe to you what the effects will be in 2 years or - the scientists (who, amazingly are on our side) have a pretty good idea and I for one don't feel like a "sheep" for believing them. If they can convince him it's safe after 2 years he'll scratch his chin, put down his glasses and ask "What about 7 years?".  When a role model is a national leader who gets his shot in secret for fear of upsetting his followers, it should make one more determined to bow to peer pressure and get the vaccine. Peer pressure meaning giving a shit about your fellow man/woman and children.
    • I like my mega sudoku I wont lie it usually takes a few hours but I want to start trying something larger than 16.
    • Well I had said that I would get back to you guys after I goofed around with the 54° and 58° on my short game shots (I only have my old Tommy Armour V-31 sand wedge as a 56° test).    My experience was that I don’t know that I will ALWAYS need two speciality wedges for  short game shots, but the 58° does come in handy from uneven shittier lies, the 56° has decent results from said lies, so the vote is not in yet... I feel the 50-90 yard shots are easier to control with the 56° (my 54° is 95-105 yards, and 58° 75-85 but I don’t like to hit them full). On the full swing motion wedge shots I can get away with just a 56°, but the one time I need a 58°-60° around the green... I think it’s going to course and conditions dependent... I can always take the 3-iron out for the 7-wood... or the 3 and 4 iron for the 7 and 9 wood... but that’s a different topic...
    • I actually am toying with playing with a 7- and 9-wood in place of my 3 and 4 hybrids not liking how hybrids hook, my 9 wood would have to be a non-Srixon/Cleveland because I’m not paying XXIO money for a 9-wood.    Hey, the 9-wood might be the modern equivalent, of the Ray Floyd 5-wood at the 1976 Masters, he actually took the 2-iron out and left the 1-iron in when he put the 5-wood in play in the 1976 Masters. The 9-wood might be my answer to question of the long par-three and long par-four second shot I have.
    • Definitely something that could help him keep golf competitions in perspective.
