1/9: integrated backswing and left wrist focus in with slow downswing. Ensured left wrist feeling flat and getting decent wrist hinge. Checked transition in mirror  to ensure club falling behind me at start of downswing.  15 min

1/4: Putting practice in the hallway, 4-6 foot putts. Just focused on setting up properly and hitting my line. Welcome to the club! Lots of stuff you can do without a club. Two of my favorites.

12/09 - chipping with putting method on carpet at work... aiming a Gatorade cap (I'd estimate it to be a 10-11 on stimp meter)

Had probably the best range session I've had in the past few years.  Working on turning my left shoulder fully and speeding up the backswing.  Really, really solid contact and a great sound coming off

Traveling with no golf clubs or swing trainer in Miami

5 min practice swings first with arms outstretched and then arms folded across chest 

worked on takeaway, at the top of backswing, a bump to left and then swing thru.

makes me think about parts of swing:

• how to push with legs

• how to turn

• how finish with belly button toward target (have plenty of belly, just can't seem to turn completely toward target)

Practicing all week this way will be hard

77 balls at range with #6 iron only, purely trying to get a consistent tempo to my swing as my new toy, Zepp gadget, tells me I'm all to cock with current tempo so gonna nail that 3:1......

I keep getting this image of men swinging in front of a mirror, brushing up against a chair or wall, for 5 minutes, at home, or in the office, or out on the construction site. The thought that keeps popping into my head is the commercial on TV  "Do these pants make me look fat?" Then again, I see myself popping out to the back yard at odd times throughout the day (and night) swinging and hitting golf balls into a net, sometimes flipping the "bird" at the ball laying innate on the ground.  I guess that's not so different, other than I do not keep a chronological account of the activity.

1/10:I bought a new sand wedge with a giftcard from Christmas and it came in the mail today. Spent about 45 minutes or so alternating back and forth between practicing pitching and chipping, and full swings just to get a feel for the club.

5 min practice

 cross arms across chest and turn back and thru. Careful before coming thru to bump forward

same excercise with arms outstretched.

hard to feel how to push off ground to get power. Turn is aborted because don't  have the flexibility.

1/11: 45 minutes at range. Exclusively worked flat left wrist. Practice swing, slowish motion swing with ball, then full swing with ball. Each batch of 3 swings a separate video. Reviewing now and submitting to instructor. Bit disappointing as the work here isn't fully being implemented "live." I am still tensing up over the ball, and need to break through so that it's all unconscious regarding the flat wrist. I need more range time, I think, but I'll just try to get out there every possible day this winter.

tried to really slow down today and focus while I was practicing.  I'm a broken record on the drills, setup tweaks, wall drill for hip turn, and feel a 1/2 swing to stop the arms from running on in backswing.  sent a fresh evolvr video in afterwards to make sure I'm on the right track.

    • I believe this still has a nonzero probability:  
    • Day 48.  Ruler and floor putting again.  As with last time, this was because it's what I can do in my circumstance, not because it's what's best for my game.  But I have seen my efforts at following through my putting stroke paying off with straight putt after straight putt (also evidence towards my hypothesis that my fault in putting is read and speed, not bead)
    • I don't have a rule book but I asked the tournament director and he could only talk about the rule to do with the ball moving at address. It's no longer a penalty if you are not deemed to have caused the ball to move. He talked about if the ball moved that you have to replace the ball but he could not give me a definitive ruling. He asked me if I hit the ball while it was moving and I said I wasn't sure, I just saw it move so it was close. Do you know the ruling?
    • He needs to play the first nine better... stop making 6s and 7s...
