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.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
