12/31 - grip, stance, slow take aways with focus on deep hands,  and balanced weight shift.  Six months straight of completed 5min challenge. Happy New Year's Eve - Be safe!

Guests went out to the pharmacy. Wife in the bedroom on the computer...got in five minutes of turn practice with hands folded across my chest and turn into backswing. I didn't even have to hide in the bathroom...yet! Merry Christmas!

Full swings on the range with my 6i and aw prior to playing 9 holes.  Wasn't striking the ball particularly well with the 6i.  Maybe 15%.

Day 23; more Kallassy swing sequences. Probably 15 minutes worth. Still pretty damp and cold out,  which does not collide well with this bronchitis I am getting over. Just keeping in swing shape, focusing on my in to out swing path. 

Day 24; worked on my flop shots today, using my 9i, and AW. Using a some what open stance, with an open club face, with the club face square to the targeted landing area, was my focus. Used 1/2, 3/4, and full swings for distance control. Probably 30 minutes spent on this. Just looking for that high arc ball flight, with little or no roll from the ball when it lands. This is my favorite shot to use when ever I can.

Spending the day at SeaWorld, so got practice in early. Trying a new drill that I thought of last night. I'm putting my right hand lower on the grip and making a bunch of slow practice swings.

Merry Christmas Everybody !!!  Walked 18 today for the first time. No push cart and no caddie either, haha. What an experience, thats the best. I learned alot about slowing down and thinking between shots. Im tired but sports are hard work. Great practice at the chipping green afterward too. Really great day

Day 24; work on my flop shots today, using my 9i, and AW. Using a some what open stance, with an open club face, with the club face square to the target area. 

Day 25; went to the short game practice area. I recieved 4 dozen of those Kirkland balls, and  loaded 14 of them into my shag stick. Spent about an hour on putting, chips, and pitches. Going to work on getting familiar to these new balls. Not much difference from my normal gamers as far I can tell.

    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second. A poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.  
    • Looks closed to me, Steve.
    • Late to post, but... I managed a par on the 18th on Sunday.  Not a birdie, but now I've birdied or parred every hole on the course! 🙂  👍
