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 18; went to a course I don't frequent very much just to use their practice greens. I wanted to work on my visual green reads. What I do is read the green, then roll a ball to verify what I read. I do this at a quick pace, as I have found the longer I look at the putting line, the more, non useful things I tend to read into it. Most of the time, what I see is correct. It's then just a matter of hitting my line with the correct ball speed. However, there are times when what I saw does not work for no apparent reason. Those reads I just file away as a "head scratcher" and move on.   I chose a new course because I was not already familliar with the practice greens.

Played 18. Could get the inside out swing to take. Better control from tee, hitting 7 of 13 fairways, but not a consistent strike. Each drive was an adventure. From the fairways and rough, terrible.

12/18: snuck to range with short window of opportunity.  Video work, but the session seems to have been a bust. Seems I forgot all of the A4 and deep hands stuff I'd been working on! Argh.  Will review video more thoroughly on computer and decide whether or not to withhold posting. Maybe good to post or send to instructor even if backslide?

Practicing the A-6 position ? (keeping my hands outside of the clubhead at parallel position). I hope thats right because thats what im doing. It seems I do it naturally with my shorter clubs but the longer clubs are giving me trouble. Im assuming thats why I pull shots sometimes. In any event im in the mirror and trying to get it right. Of course im putting on my practice green. I got a break pad for christmas, so now i can build a break into my green. These birdie ball greens are pretty cool.

It is, thanks.  Not to ramble, but this course has pitching/chipping/sand green, huge putting green, and full grass range.  My Evolvr practice area now, to work on things.  This is where I do my rehab playing daily small ball.  Off to the pitts I go.

I agree with Strat-Pack, that place rocks. Want one like that near my house! Guess it will have to wait until I win the Powerball! Use it before you lose it, Hatchman!

Day 19: Played a "chilly" 18 holes this morning. Shot an 84 with 30 putts. Focus was to keep the ball in play, and live with what ever I had left over. Like I said it was bit on the chilly side. In the low 30s with a slight breeze when we started. Had some really good shots, and a few not so good. Finished the round with the same two balls I started with, which in itself was an achievement, with the water hazards, and the leaves every where.

    • 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..
