I didn't practice yesterday (6/3), so I'm already out of it, plus I neglected to post on 6/1 and 6/2.  But I aim to practice most days *and* to get into the habit of trying to practice all days.

Today I went to the range in the late afternoon.  Outdoors, with range balls, on mats.  I spent the majority of my time on pitch shots, 56 through 9iron, focusing on address, posture, and swinging through.  I hit a number of really poor ones in my round on Thursday so this has been on my mind.  A good number hooked or were pulled, which surprised me, but I made solid contact more often than not, so I'm reasonably happy with how it came out.

Today was also the first day I used my future golf room, doing the at-home driver practice exercise for ten reps from LSW.  This doesn't constitute five minutes, but I did want to brag about that too.

6/10/17: So GIR are "king". Yesterday I shot my lowest 9 holes of the year. 38, no birdies, but 7 pars and 2 bogeys. But I hit 4 GIR, 2 Fringes, and the 3 Greens I missed that I couldn't putt wer

My hips have a tendency to sway back (away from the target) on the backswing...  

Gonna give this a go.   6/1/2017: I spent 1 1/2 hours at the putting green working on chipping with a SW and PW and putting.   I've developed a game where I chip to the 6 holes on the green

June 4th:- 1 1/2 hours at the driving range - unusual for me. Great time figuring out what worked in terms of grip, ball position and stance. Very encouraging.

6/5:

Worked more on lag putting this morning.   Yesterday I noticed that all of my practice was up hill, this morning I worked on the same lag putting exercises but downhill.   It was an eye opener to see the difference.  

I also did about 5 minutes of chipping practice.

6/5/17:

Slow swings with a sand wedge, trying not to change my peripheral vision. Mostly it was an exercise to get my weight forward.

June 5 - Mirror work at the gym. Focused on the turn from the top, but also paid attention to the club face position at A6. Video showed it to be fairly open there.

6/5:  forearm release drill, to hopefully help cut down on weak flares to the right next time out; also read Ch. 10 on Short Game Equipment in Pelz's Short Game Bible.

5 min Sklz swing trainer. Visitors in the house so we will see if I can get through this visit w/o missing a day--maybe back to practice sessions in the bathroom!

6/5:  Copied @roamin without knowing it.  Pouring outside most all day, so I putted in the hallway for 10-15mins.  Focused on keeping the current stroke grooved, and tempo.

June 6 - Mirror work at the gym. Also, I'm going to a launch monitor later to work on my shot zones for Driver, 3W, 7iron and PW if there is time. Driver it the priority.

6/6:  more forearm release drilling. I also hit some controlled (i.e. not killing it), full 9 irons in the yard with foam balls, focusing on a full finish with a good release.

    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
