12/10 - worked on low point control with alignment rod 4" behind ball. I kept hitting the alignment rod during my takeaway so I switched it to a flatter stick (ruler).

12/11 - ditto

12/11: 10 minutes backswing. Reviewed old evolvr notes on backswing and found one about hand position at A3 from way back (I was drawing hands in too far, too early at the time). Verified that I had mostly fixed that. Worked on address to A4, as well as the feel of the start of the downswing. 

Backswing feeling quite short and controlled now. It's getting hard to imagine how I got to the crazy positions I used to get to- that once felt so natural. Progress!

Played 18 today. The inside out swing practice did not help--slicing off the tee and losing shots thru first nine, no fairways hit. Second nine, drive went back to old cut drives and started to find fairway. Short game was great--chipping and putting kept me in bogies during first round and almost broke par on the second nine at 37!

Hey, 88 is a very good score from the back tees so don't beat yourself up too much. Remember a ridiculous number of golfers never beat 90 in their entire lives.

switching to whites is a great idea to build confidence and provide a new look at your home course.

Beating 80 from any tees on any course is a major accomplishment!

good luck!

@Mico Well thanks bud, I appreciate your support. However, I am playing from the whites. Im usually making 85-87 with my best being 83. Ive been so close so many times and I just cant seem to get there. I think about it too much and choke. Im moving up to the senior tees, haha. Come talk with us on the breaking 90 thread. Im supposed to report my practice here but i just got on a rant. See you over there bud.

Dec 11: Went to my local practice facility where I started off with some practice chipping and putting. Hit about thirteen balls on the driving range and then played eighteen holes of par 3 golf. There was no one on the course so I was able to play two, sometimes three balls on various holes. I also had the opportunity to repeat some of my pitches two or three times. Afterwards, I hit some more balls, working on my three wood, hybrids and four iron.

Walked 18. Ugly first 6 holes. Turned off my game golf and finished out the 9 birdie, bogey, par. Had 2 chip ins on the back. One for bird and the other for bogey. Something about that thing gets in my head.

I almost never play on a weekend due to the weekend golfers being so plentiful. Today was the exception. 

Day 11; seems our supt also plays golf and found out I fool around with the game too. Since she only has the weekends off, she asked if I would go with her. We played 18. 

I actually put some effort into today's match. I paid attention to my address, and alignment. I paid more attention to my landing areas. I choked down on the various clubs I used, while using a shorter back swing on all my approach shots. 

You know what? I shot an 81. I missed two, 3' putts. Ones I have seen, and made before. My boss? Well, she shot a really nice 78. Yep. A girl beat me straight up. Apparently she played college golf about 20 years ago. :-O

12/12 - chipping x 20 mins primarily working on pace. I holed out 3-4 from 30ft which is great for me. Then, over lunch break, hit gumballs outside at work with a SW working on initiating the backswing with hips.

12/12: 15 minutes working on A3 to A4. My work the past couple weeks has been good ONLY because it has raised awareness of how the club and arms work in the backswing- but my positions have been off (instructor feedback). I think this new change will be ok, but just need to so lots of reps.

Day 12; got in a little chipping practice this morning. Focus was on alignment, stance, and landing areas with different clubs. Hit 56 balls after warming up. Graded myself a C+ for effort. 

Also,  I am pretty good at utilizing whats available for a make shift practice area. When playing I sometimes find myself in need of a low carry, running shot to get out from under trees. I have an area that works just great to practice that type of shot. Gripping down,  playing the ball a little further back in my stance, with an abreviated swing worked well for me to hit a landing area about 50 yards away. I had to stay under 6 trees, and miss some large boulders to get to that landing area. 

What ever keeps me interested. :-)
