6/25:

* Putting with the metal yard-stick, but not with my own putter (that is, not the one I currently use in play).  Real ball, indoors.

* Backswing, focusing on keeping the club face looking at the ball through A3, extending to full swing with hands high, then slow motion checked downswing.

6/25: Got 12 holes in this morning before it started storming, ended up 9 over with a birdie. Took a few holes to get my driver working, and a few more to feel comfortable with my irons.

June 26th:- 10 mins full swing practice, 3 wood. Concentrated on Key #1, especially from A2 to A4,to prevent "standing up" during the backswing, which is the priority piece I'm working on.

6/27/17:

I played 18 today... I hit 7/18 GIR plus 2 fringes... I SHOT 77... My lowest round since my accident... 1 birdie, 11 pars, and 6 bogeys.... No Doubles. I did goof 2 pitches on 10 and 18 but got both of the 2nd chips up and down for bogey... So it probably would have been the same score if I hit the first short game shot on the green. I really need to build on this... I think I may be turning a corner.

6/27: 15 minutes outside with sand wedge and plastic balls. 5-10 minutes of a couple slow-motion swings followed by a full show, focus during slow-mo work was no sway on the backswing and weight-transfer on the downswing, down to about A2 and pausing for a sec, then finishing at a full extension (A7.5?). Then hit about 20 shots, just working on aim/setup and slowing tempo down a bit.

6/27 - met some friends after work, but I got out of work before they did.  So I got some good practice time in.

Range, outdoors, on a mat, with range balls.  30 ball bucket, lasted me about an hour.  Practice backswing at the ball, check position.  Stop, reset, practice backswing at the ball, slow downswing, stop.  Step away, set up again not to the ball, swing.  Set up to the ball, swing.

All that mirror work the last few days... the first few strikes were big hooks.  Trust the process.  After about a half dozen... mind you, no adjustments, not trying to change what I was doing because of a few ball flights.  After about that half dozen, some amazing straight high strikes.  These were mostly my 6-iron, but I hit a few 9-iron and gap wedge shots too.

I also did some 20 yard chips without any real focus.  Mostly trying out my course's new chipping area. 

I then went to the putting green;  about 5-7 minutes each on 4', 8', 12' putts.  I should have been recording how many out of how many or done a 4-8-12 drill.  On the short ones, I did focus on a small backswing so I wouldn't have to "check" my swing mid through, which I suspect was an issue for me on shorter putts in the recent past.

6/28:

Was the first person on the golf course, actually I waited for them to open.  Focused on my chipping.   I practiced last night for about 1 hour and it helped today around the green.   My previous sand trap work paid off too,   I was successful in three attempts.

    • I have an answer written up, but I'll wait a little bit to post it. Go ahead, keep arguing. But stop changing your votes, please. Your vote is your vote. If you're wrong, let the vote show it.
    • Has anyone tried to rough up the surface of their grips to make them tacky again?  or what is a time tested solution - besides replacing them of course.
    • Thank you for that!  Always wondered what those were called..good topic.  I finally got out to the range after almost 6 years and surprisingly hit my irons decent.  I have also decided to put a few irons away.  thinking of replacing the stronger lofted with my hybrids and going down to the 6i and down.  
    • Exactly! That loft number is all you need. The fact that one OEM calls it an Approach Wedge and another calls it a Gap Wedge is irrelevant. For me, I need a 50 degree wedge; then I know what to do with it. OEM’s are in business to sell golf clubs, period. If you think they have some altruistic motives as well, you have probably drunk the koolaid.
