5/19: About 15 minutes with the metronome app tonight. Settled in at about 42 bpm and used a simple, "one...two" count for backswing to downswing. Spent some time with both my driver and my pitching wedge. A few minutes of tempo'd practice swings and then a few minutes hitting plastic balls (with tempo) with each club.

5/19:  Hopefully last day of being overly restricted, then can start ramping back up.
10 mins. 50%-75%-speed full swings w/7i, no ball; focus on takeaway not being too inside, then lagging through and bumping ground through impact position, to full follow through.

Full bucket of balls at range. Worked on keeping lag in swing 

PW, 7i, 3W and driver

good smooth swing and contact except for some shanks that crept in foreshadowingly before my 18 holes

5/20: Played "select-a-shot" from the front tees with my son today, shot 79 (40/39). Had a great day. He's really starting to enjoy golf, which is good to see. Also, I like playing from the fronts with him and getting a read on every putt. Of course, he made a couple of putts outside of 10 feet (for birdie and par) that I was glad I didn't have to putt. :-D

5/20:  Back in full action today....
At least 45 mins. pitching from different locations around yard to my pin; focus on neutral weight at address, then pressure to left foot, then through.
10 mins. warmup/loosen-up/light-conditioning sets w/OW -- went well, no pain
25 mins. full swings, foam balls w/TourStriker p7i at target; focus on opening a little more at setup (had been trending closed), then not-rushed transition, hips through and lag into impact.  Felt pretty fresh and was really striking it well. 

Getting pretty rainy here in AL, and will stay so through the week, so not sure when I'll get to take my work back out to the course.  Hopefully soon.

May 20th:- 5 mins full swing practice. Now working more on the through swing. From the fuller backswing position (more shoulder turn), I'm conscious of a pause at A4, followed by a definite movement of the hips toward the target to initiate the through swing. Am finding this to be very encouraging, results wise.

Hit a bunch of 48°, 9i, 7i, 5i, 3h, and Drivers, focusing on not rushing the downswing and using the same swing and ball position for all clubs.

Bucket of balls before playing. Short irons were great. Good contact, ball flight long and straight. 3W and hybrid 3 a little more erratic. Driver was OK

wgen I felt lost lag, used the pump drill to get it back. Did it on course when I was playing too.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
