6/3:

Played 18 at Heather Highlands in Holly, MI.   Still working on my driver set-up.  I also tried to focus on my wedge distances. 

During warm-up tried the flop shot challenge...:-O

6/3: Played 18 this morning before the thunderstorms arrived. Shot a 14 over, 87 (43/44). Driver was working well again, irons too, but a few got away from me a bit; and I'm back to topping my 3-wood so I'll have to get some range time with it in soon.

6/3:  Usual pitching around the yard.  from 25-40yds.; focus on turning through w/hips to lead club through--felt like I could drop 'em all on a dime, today...work paying off.
Went to club & took daughter--her first trip to range--we worked on putting for ~20 mins., then went to range and I mostly helped her w/the basics, but did hit ~15 balls or so w/my 7i; focus was on driving hips through then dropping club in behind.  Man do I want to get some non-solo rounds in so I can post them.  I'm playing well below my index, and wish I could get the number to reflect my progress.

6/4:

Worked 40 minutes on lag putting.   Distance of 24', 36', 42' and 72'.    My goal was to have a tap-in at each distance.    I walked away feeling successful.   I guess I need to practice this more because it killed me yesterday on the course.

6/04 - centered hip turn with 8i x 5 mins. Trying not to dip my head down during the turn which is my tendency. Will try to video and post in MySwing thread by end of the week...it's been awhile since I've posted there. ;-)

Bucket of balls before I played today. Very good ball striking and distance. PE, 7i and driver. Did not translate to course. Gonna need a refresher class.

6/4: Busy day but managed to get a little pitching practice in, alternating shots between a few different targets in the front yard.

6/4:  finished the sand shots chapter in Pelz's Short Game Bible; it's an information overload for bunker shots.  Worked on smoothing out my distance wedge swing with a full finish, as well.

6/4:  Lots of spotty rain around (and super muggy air) kep me away from the course, today....
Plenty of short game work around yard, per usual routine; ~10y chips thru 40yd. pitches.  Was a little off today, but got it back together towards the end.  Was having a little issue with temp, and with my spine angle breaking down so I wasn't rotating around a consistent axis.
10 mins. full swing work w/OW; didn't go at it as hard as I normally do for conditioning...just worked on swing form & tempo.
Finished up w/5-7 mins. wall drill work; focus on setting spine angle and rotating around that axis correctly (keeping arse from schrunching up towards ball through impact).
