Have practised my backswing: should turn the shoulders more but not let the club fall too much behind me. Is hard for me to separate this two concepts on my backswing...

:-D

5 minutes mirror swing.

I think I've got my OTT under some semblance of control. I was able to push most of my shots, only shanked 3 balls and pulled 10 out of my 120. Yes, I limited my self to 1 bucket today. I don't feel all that satisfied, but at least most of my shots all felt pretty good. Still can't hit my 6i to distance, I got two or three shots out to the right distance, but just can't quite hit it cleanly enough.

My goal is to be able to hit my 6i to distance before the end of the week? At least, that's my "aspiration".

20 - 25 minutes of mirror work.

  1. First part was backswing A1-4.  I was getting a little wide in my last videos from A1 to 3.  Focused on letting my shoulder turn move my arms at the start.
  2. Laying the shaft down from A4 to 5 to get to the correct position at 6.
  3. Last 10 minutes was all tempo work.  Slow from A1 to 5, then accelerate to A8, right arm fully extended and let the pivot take over.  The last part goes south on the course when I start to tighten up.

15 minutes, Key 2 work.  On my matt in the backyard, placed a ball marker a couple inches behind the ball, worked on hitting the ball without touching the ball marker.  Really had to get my weight forward to do this.

Worked on my toss drill from evolvr in my living room for 5 mins.  Im going to work on my putting as well tonight.  In my last round I was struggling with lag putts.  I think my takeaway was to fast which made me hit my putts instead just swing my putter.

Played 9 holes today. Hit the ball well. Distance wedges were horrible. Pitching was horrible. Putting was bad.

Went to the short game area afterward. Starting to hit distance wedges much better and pitch much better. Need to take that to the course.

Couldn't complete the challenege in May and didn't even post once in June, but let's see if July is going to work for me.

Spent a little over an hour hitting balls about 30 balls into my net. Monitored my grip change throughout (more diagonally across the left hand) and it was good; feels pretty natural now. Focused on feeling the right arm pressure points stay on my body. Noticed that my shoulders were slightly retracted instead of rounded, so I made the conscious effort to round them forward. Helped keep my right elbow more in front of me as opposed to my side (not that I pull it behind my shirt seam, but it has a tendency to "fly" out a bit). The pressure point feel was much better as a result.

Mixed it up with different clubs for the last 6 balls.

Worked on two things, keeping my head steady while turning the hips. This is starting to pay off in huge dividends for me. Was awkward at first, but is starting to find its way onto the course and just about every swing.

I went to the range and worked on keeping my left wrist straight throughout the golf swing.

I also worked on the high tee drill.  A few of my shots went left and came back to the right.  I also hit a few shots that started right but worked their way back left. Most of my shots were straight and high.  It felt like half of my shots I made good contact, the other half I hit high on the club face.  I was trying to hit the ball out to the right and have it move back to the left.  I think during my next range session I will work on hitting the ball out to the right.  Once i'm able to hit the ball out to the right i'll worry about moving the ball back to the left.

Putting putting putting! Bead bead bead with my practice putting device. I have an outing tomorrow at a country club I've never played before and have been told has some difficult greens. I should probably get there and practice distance control before I play tomorrow morning.
