6/10/17: So GIR are "king". Yesterday I shot my lowest 9 holes of the year. 38, no birdies, but 7 pars and 2 bogeys. But I hit 4 GIR, 2 Fringes, and the 3 Greens I missed that I couldn't putt wer

My hips have a tendency to sway back (away from the target) on the backswing...  

Gonna give this a go.   6/1/2017: I spent 1 1/2 hours at the putting green working on chipping with a SW and PW and putting.   I've developed a game where I chip to the 6 holes on the green

6/20/17:

Some iron shots this morning. Again my foci were good relaxed tempo and hitting the spot on the ground just in front of the ball. Some solid 6-iron shots were flying 180 yards. The two or three 3-iron shots were flying 215-220. What is going on? No idea, just a straight or slight draw shot. I think I'll build on this and see if it works up and down the bag.

June 20 - Playing 18 today. Had to rest my bad parts yesterday.

Good luck and hope all of your parts are good today. 

I hit a small bucket today without pain- just mild discomfort but that's apparently good. Just slow swings with full range of motion. Didn't work on my last lesson priority- just focused on full shoulder turn while keeping head pointed toward ball (has been the range of motion issue I've been battling).  Big success

6/19: More rain. Ugh. :-(

6/20: Same. Looks to be that way for several days. 10 minutes of putting in the hallway.

6/20:  rain is here for the next 3 days or so, so I did some weight training to strengthen/heal my right elbow; also did some more grip and pre-shot routine/setup work.

They weren't. My wrist hurt from the first to last shot. I had it wrapped too.

June 21 - Off day. I did some shoulder turn work at my desk, but I need to give the wrist a break.

6/21:

Played 18 today and was very happy with my Aimpoint reads and putts.   My tee shots are still a work in progress.   Hitting the range tomorrow.

6/21: Another successful day at range. Gentle swings with full shoulder turn. Also added left hip awareness from last lesson- pull it through aggressively near impact. 

Putted for 30min. 8ft with 1-3% slope.

Forgot to post yesterday, but didn't forget to practice.  I'm out of it for the month anyway, but I'd like to record it for practice (I aim to succeed at the challenge in July and going forward).  I will then write about today's.

 

6/20:  was meeting some friends after work, but got out of work before they did.  I went to the range first, small bucket, outdoors.  I hit entirely 6-irons, checking first my grip, then my backswing, with my usual two good practice backswings (usually with one slow forward) before hitting a shot.  It took me over an hour for my bucket of 40 balls!

I then went to the putting green, working 3' putts for a while.  I had a realization, and I don't know how accurate it is, and it worries me because I still don't know.  The motion to hit a 3' putt is much smaller.  I wonder how much of my pushing and pulling was because I made too much back motion!  I ordered a metal yardstick today and maybe I'll find out before too long.

 

6/21, similar routine as yesterday, different range (grass this time).  Took about an hour to get through the bucket of 33, although I took a few breaks (it felt hotter today) and also had to clean my clubs a bit more than on the mat range.  I was able to hit some 5-woods, a few 3-woods, and some drivers too, although as usual, it was primarily my 6-iron. 

I then went to the putting green for an hour, largely on putts 5' and in.  My aim was to use a routine and hit them without having to go further back than forward and also start them on my line.  I'm worried I'm getting in my head about putting.  My promise to myself is that tomorrow, when I get to play, I'm going to relax when I putt.  Let's see if I keep that promise.

June 21st:- Midwinter solstice here. Practiced 20 minutes with Driver and 3 wood. Focused on making a relaxed shoulder turn during the backswing to prevent me raising my head.

6/22:

Spent 2 hours at the driving range.   I flighted my wedges and hit them well.   I worked with my 3 wood and driver, focusing on key #1 and key #2.    I was also able to spend about 30 minutes in the sand trap practicing.   That is something I don't normally practice.   

A good practice session.

    • Day 274: worked on my priority pieces with a revised feel rehearsal. Results were an improvement. Trying to feel the left leg straighten and push the left hip back from A5 through impact. 
    • Yes - I saw those figures. I'd love to say it's unbelievable..........😘
    • From an early July report/poll... see below:  Shorty, in the U.S. the current government is already unpopular with the Republicans so it's kind of an "I don't care" situation.  For the most part, the vaccinated are happy with their government.   "The poll found that while 86% of Democrats have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, only 45% of Republicans have. In addition, the survey found that while only 6% of Democrats said they would probably decline the vaccine, 47% of Republicans said they would probably not be inoculated. "  
    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
