Got to the course for today's round early.  Part of it was that if I didn't, I'd be sitting in traffic.

But part of it was to do some putting drills for 10 minutes before starting my "pre-round" warm-up.  I did a circle of 3' and a few 5-6', as well as speed drills.  Did it help?  I think so.

6/22: Finally a day with no rain!! :banana:

Was family game night, so no course time, but I did get ~30 minutes out front... 10 minutes of slow-mo backswings, focus on hip turn/no sway, a few reps and then an easy shot at a target, rinse and repeat. 10 minutes of pitching practice, hitting at my buckets. And another 5-10 minutes just hitting shots (at targets) for fun.

June 22nd: 10 mins driver swings on the lawn. Worked on making a slow backswing and feeling the correct position at A4.

6/23:

Played 18 in very wet conditions.    Practiced for 35 minutes chipping until they allowed us on the golf course.   On the golf course, since it was so wet, I just tried to focus on keeping my weight forward.

6/23: Sunshine and no rain today! :dance: Walked nine holes after work, shot 4 over. Was playing well, but felt stiff and rusty. Stuck a couple of wedge approaches close but couldn't convert on the birdie putts. Great fun, though.

6/24:

Played 18 again in very wet conditions.    Still working with my driver.   Only hit 5 fairways so I hit a small bucket of balls afterwards, working on setup and take away.  It's a shame I didn't hit the range before I played instead of after...I was on the first tee before the course opened.

6/24/17:

Practiced chipping a bit in the yard this morning.

I got out and played 18 yesterday. After being +5 thru 4 holes. I was +5 the rest of the way for a solid 82. With a double on 18. I only hit 3/18 GIR (ouch), but after the 3rd most of my misses were nGIR, and had some easy chips and got up and down for par 8 times. I also had a near under GIR on 9 but misjudged the chip a bit, and left it 10 feet short. But it's getting better I think I'm just a little bit away from a 10 GIR round. 27 putts, which I'll take most of my one-putts were inside 3 feet though after some great chipping.

Apparently my 6/23 post didn't go thru:

6/23 - putting 6-8ft for bead; pitching x 5 mins 

6/24- pitching in backyard with foam balls. Working of pitching technique and straight trajectory

6/24 Several 5 minute increments today, but nothing as concentrated as the end of last week:

* 3-4 times today, set up to a ball with the mirror away from me (relative to what the target would be if I swung).  Worked on my backswing priority piece from evolvr.  Indoors, with ball, but no contact.

* Twice today took my grip (admittedly, not my Edel putter, but another putter with a similar grip in the golf room) and hit a few putts on the ruler to acclimate to the drill.  The thing I really learned is that I need to use a real golf ball, because wow can I keep that plush one online!

6/25 - range day! Playing with the boss Friday, so wanted to get some things ironed out. 

Centered turn is becoming second nature, so I worked on some set up issues pointed out on my swing thread. Hit really well...it's been awhile so it was nice to have that going into the next round
