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

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. 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.

    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.   
    • I would like to but I use it to keep in contact with former players and family.
