June 17th:- 10 mins full swing practice, 7 iron. Worked on slowing down the backswing to enable more correct positioning at A4.

June 18 - pitching in the backyard for about 15 minutes. Followed with some mirror work and swings using the garage window. Testing the wrist. It felt ok. Maybe I will be able to hit balls tomorrow.

6/18: Actually hit a few balls today, as neck pain improves. Nice easy swings, still limited in motion. But definite progress in healing since last attempt.

Putted for 30 min- mostly 2 and 3 % slopes from inside 15ft.

6/18:  worked on grip and setup -- my hands have been too close to my body lately; also worked on slow takeaways, and a forearm rotation drill.

6/18: Got home late, but finally home! A few minutes of putting in the hallway and a quick nine holes on WGT. :-P

6/19:  slow takeaways to make sure my wrists are in good position at the top, and then focusing on turning the hips and shoulders back to start the downswing instead of casting my arms first.

6/19: More rain. Ugh. :-(

Managed to get about 15 minutes in with my pitching wedge, just focused on easy swings and proper hip turn/no sway.

5 min wall drill. Sliding hands on wall and stay on plane versions. Feels like smooth movement. Interested to see how it impacts my swing and to try stay on plane version with a club

6/19 -- I'm playing a club event on 6/22 and had part of this afternoon free, so I got some good practice in.  Outdoors, with balls.

* Range, bucket of 33.  This routine has gotten a bit ingrained by now (and I just got my next evolvr video so I know what I need to do to improve it).  Hit 6-iron, 5-wood, and then some 3-woods.  I have been hesitant lately to pull my 3-wood from the bag, even on a good lie, so I wanted to hit some from grass.  For some reason, I can accept my 5-wood distance, but I think I overswing my 3-wood.  I focused on calm, just swing when I was swinging ... and when I did think that, I hit it very well.  My game golf says I hit it one yard past my 5-wood (190 vs 191 yards), but that's partly because of some terrible shots I've hit with the 3-wood that got recorded and not many even acceptable ones.  I will aim to hit it more in rounds, particularly not tournament rounds, both to get a record of if it's worth hitting (versus if I should drop it in favor of something else, if it really is only one yard past my 5-wood) and to know that distance I can get on a calm swing.

* Chipping to a practice green.  Four balls, but I didn't do anything where I kept track of results.  The "practice green" I was at today was really more decent fairway with two flags in it.  

* Putting.  Did plenty from 10-15', working on speed.  I got to the practice green and realized I had forgotten what drills there were.  Tomorrow and Wednesday I'll go with a purpose for short game practice.

    • Day 356 The holes in my net have become unmanageable, and I've ripped holes in the target cloth blocking the holes in the net now too. While I wait for my warranty replacement (not sure how Rukket earns money considering all the nets I've been through), I just hit some 50% speed 5-irons with the feeling of the club head moving before the handle to start transition, and tried to keep the trajectory low to hit an integral part of the net.
    • When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁
    • That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Very wet, cartpaths only. Plugged drives all day. Played something that kind of resembled golf. Not going to bother analyzing anything since it's December 3rd. Was just happy to get out on a nice course. Highlights of the day were making birdie from a penalty area on #9 and the twisting sand cart paths I drove golf cart rally on.
    • I doubt you were actually swinging slower. Did you have any clubhead data?
