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.

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!

Day 26; Played 18 with our park supt. Shot an 80 in 40*f +/-  clear weather. Due to clothing, my full swings were of the abbreviated style. Used one of those Kirkland balls the entire 18. It's a decent ball. Focus today was on my short game, since I kept everything in play on my full swings. 30 putts, with two chip ins. The lady I played with shot a 78. She's a pretty decent golfer. Both times we have played, she has broken 80. We played from the 6500 yards tees.

20 min Alt. Sklz swing trainer and driver. With Sklz, I feel the turn more and even have to use lower body on swing that seems to be  on plane from inside compared to driver where rotation is much more difficult to feel and/or achieve and swing from inside feels more dubious. Used 7 iron for final segment of swing session. Invented 10 thump rule--must do 10 thumps on mat for each sequence before advancing to next one, starting with small arm swing, then to "y" and finally to wrist hinge. Swing feels more real, not sure that is the case.

gonna play Thursday because doubtful that I will get out on Sunday, New Year's Day

Range day. Hour with video, focusing on backswing, flat left wrist. Bit of regression, so it's back to slow motion swings and exaggerations, I suppose. Perhaps need a fresh look by instructor on what else to try. Progress seems to have hit a wall.

Played 18 holes this morning. Cool weather is keeping the regular crowd away. Shot an 82 for my effort. Focus was to keep my full swing shots in play. Lost one ball to leaves. Just a consistant round for me. The other guy is buying lunch as I type this....lol

20 min Alternate Sklz with 7 iron, where I did my 10 thumps per sequence--small swing...thump, thump, thump..."y" swing...thump, thump...then wrist hinge...thump, thump...Back to Sklz swings and another set of iron thumping before going to driver. Working on inside out swing with light ground brush. Feels good, god only knows if the swing path is!

will find out on ThursdaY when I go to range and play 18--last round of the year!

30 minute range work for more flexibility.  Still tight shoulder girdle but loosing, I think.  Then played 18.

working on short game around the greens. Ive been struggling with short pitches and chips. If I can shorten my 1st putts 80 will fall. Opening my wedges up and working on good ball first clean contact. I guess im changing the brakes on my game, haha.

    • Another not hopeless round of 93 with a lot to work on yesterday.  Fairways 5/14, Greens 5/18 and, 37!! (only one 3-putt) putts, with 6 doubles and a tripple. 5 balls in the water and not making a single putt outside 5 feet is not the recipe for success...  I definitely make a lot of good shots, but with 50% of my teeshots missing left (18% right) I know what I need to work on.   
    • Nice. I’ve got the second generation sensors as well, so I’d like to use them as long as I can. I’ve got a few putter sensors that have gone dead (I assume from the battery) that I can try this out on. 
    • Voted no. I think armlock putting looks kind of weird, especially the Zalatoris armlock claw stroke and Bryson's robotic motion, but I don't really care (I have a LAB DF 2.1, so it's not like my putter looks cool or anything). I don't see a reason to ban armlock as compared to the broomstick or belly putters which actually seem to have an anchor point.
    • Anyone gaming a set of these, I've bought a set of these irons off ebay. I'm feeling the difference between swinging my 6 iron and my wedge, want to try Brysons method of one swing. If you've tried AGX I'd appreciate your feedback, thanks..
