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.

6/28/17:

After yesterday's epic round of 77... I worked on more steady head and weight forward drills today. Used slow swings with a PW in order to get the feeling down.

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
