30 min of search for the casting remedy. 

Tried feet together and short seven iron swing to feel the release--so, so

tried starting with seven iron at waist height, pre-set wrist cock, raise up to top  of backswing and backdown without completing swing two times and finally release thru on third swing--could feel lag release but seems to promote tension

sklz swing trainer for big long sequenced swing with hands release as the final bit--weight of trainer helps feel lag but hard to maintain

small driver swings to big ones trying to feel release--more or less

worried that when I get to range and course on Saturday my swing will be a mess

Last day in Florida, got to have a long range session. Focused on 3/4 backswing feel and keeping my head still as I start down. Also got some sand and putting practice in. Back to the cold weather tonight.

1/18: 45min at range. Worked on backswing and left wrist on video. Mixed results as it still feels different over hitting a ball. Backswing gets longer. Left wrist breaks down. I think I saw some improvement though

65* on Saturday is not so bad. Sunday should be ok. Courses are a tad damp in areas, but hey, Golf in January. A+ bonus.

45 min with my new routine

1. Skillz swing trainer to warm up and get feeling started
 
2. Small swings with feet together, then to "y" swing with feet bit further apart, next "L" swings with feet wider
 
3. Pump drill with full swing
 
I do this first with a 7 iron and then with a driver, inserting Skillz between each step.
 
Repeat as many sets as I have time for, but a minimum of 5 min.

Practiced swings out back tonight waiting on the rocket launch. The launch was scrubbed, but I got some practice in. Keeping he left arm straight(er) seems to help with rotating my hip back for some reason.

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 my irons.  The driver was excellent too.  Good balance on the finish as well.  Wish I could bottle it today.

I'm either going to play 9 tomorrow or hit the range again and try and video the swing.

1/19: Walked 9 holes after work today. Shot 8 over. I could get used to free golf, but it's going to limit my practice time. ;-)

1/19. Warmed up for 15 minutes before playing a round. Focused on finding a swing for the day, using the drills I've been documenting for weeks here- namely, flat left wrist, stronger grip than I naturally gravitate to, and steep backswing transitioning to shallower downswing. Got the feels working with solid strikes on the range, and took it all to the course fairly successfully, where I didn't think too much about it all.

1/19.  Forgot to post.  Work the range, stretching; tilt and turn, and a few holes filming.
